  • Intel's new Whiskey Lake-U and Amber Lake-Y CPUs focus on improved mobile connectivity and battery life

Intel dwelt on the architecture of the new CPUs ('Whiskey Lake-U', in particular) during the presentation.

Intel's three new new 8th Gen Intel Core U-series processors (code-named Whisky Lake): the Core i7-8565U, i5-8265U and i3-8145U, will come with integrated Intel Wireless-AC modules for Gigabit Wi-Fi for up to 12 times faster connectivity speeds. So it is a bit confusing to note that the new additions are, in fact, new generation versions of the U-series and Y-series chips that are aimed at mobile and ultra-mobile computing scenarios.

Intel has really muddied the waters with its so-called 8th-generation Core processors, as these diverse chips would have previously consumed at least two processor generations.

How Roseanne Barr will be written out of spin-off series
The exact way Roseanne will be removed from the Conner family hasn't been revealed but Goodman believes she'll be killed off. Goodman said the cast will have their work cut out to make the new show a success without her.

In its launch presentation, Intel tossed out a flurry of statistics emphasizing the performance edge that its latest mobile CPUs will have over five-year-old PCs.

The range starts with the 5W thermal design profile (TDP) Core m3-8100Y, with a 1.1GHz base and 3.4GHz boost clock speed across two cores and four threads (2C4T) and supports only LPDDR3 1,866MHz while having 4MB of on-board cache memory. The Y-series chip also allows for a fanless design, making the device 13.7mm at its thickest point.

The highlight of these processors is the integration of Gigabit Wi-Fi support (Wireless-AC 160 MHz) that facilitates up to 12 times faster connectivity speeds especially in low-priced, mainstream laptops.

Arizona Senator John McCain dead after battle with brain cancer
Trump tweeted about McCain after his death Saturday but has passed up several chances to comment publicly on the Arizona senator. Trump has frequently criticized McCain for voting against a 2017 plan in the Senate to replace the so-called Obamacare law.

Both Whiskey Lake and Amber Lake chips come in I7, i5, and i3 variations, and it's likely we'll soon see them in brand new notebooks. But it does support Gigabit Wi-Fi by way of external or discrete modules, and it has preloaded eSIM support for Intel's Gigabit LTE modems.

"Consumers can simplify their lives and get more done with Amazon Alexa and Microsoft Cortana to help control lighting and temperature in their homes, play music, create lists and shop with the sound of their voice, whether they are at home or on-the-go", the Intel announcement notes without context. Whether new hardware can convince cheapskate PC owners to trade in those perfectly good, somewhat slow old PCs is a question only Intel's hardware partners can answer.
