That’s a significant bump in performance
Aside from the ultra-tier, not-for-the-average-consumer “Basin Falls” CPU and X299 chipset reveal, Intel has also previewed a glimpse of what we can expect for their 8th generation Core processors, currently codenamed “Coffee Lake”. These Coffee Lake CPUs will be available in the second half of this year and will naturally be replacing the 7th gen Kaby Lake CPUs.
Intel is claiming “up to 30% better performance” – in certain benchmarks and use cases – for the Coffee Lake processors, though the upcoming CPUs will still be built with the same 14nm fab process, albeit refined and improved. As for other hardware specifics and details, we’ll have to wait as Intel declined to elaborate more on the subject.
