When it comes to diverse CPU portfolio, AMD doesn’t even come close to Intel. While Intel is yet to announce its Whiskey Lake-U CPUs but, a couple of Intel Whiskey Lake-U CPUs, Core i5-8265U and Core i7-8565U, have been leaked online along with their specs.
The leaked Intel Whiskey Lake-U CPUs popped up at SiSoftware database and 3DMark database as noted by TUM APISAK. The leaked Intel Whiskey Lake-U CPUs are Core i5-8265U and Core i7-8565U.
The Core i5-8265U is a 4 core and 8 thread CPU with a base clock of 1.6GHz, boost clock of 3.9GHz. As for the Core i7-8565U, it is also a 4 core 8 thread CPU with a base clock of 1.8 GHz and a boost clock of 4.5 GHz. Both these processors are reportedly found in Haier Boyue M53 series laptops
Speaking of Intel, the company is also readying its Bean Canyon NUCs with Coffee Lake-U And Iris Plus Graphics.
According to a report, the upcoming Intel Bean Canyon NUCs come with Core i7-8559U, Core i5-8259U and Core i3-8109U. However, both Core i5-8259U and Core i3-8109U feature two variants but the difference between them is the support for Intel Optane memory.
The Core i7-8559U features 2.7 GHz of base clock, 4.5 GHz of boost clock, 8 MB of L3 cache, support for Intel Optane memory and is a quad-core core CPU.
Furthermore, Intel has revealed its 9th-gen Coffee Lake CPUs in official documents. The 9th-gen Intel CPUs mentioned by Intel are:
- Core i5-9600K
- Core i5-9500
- Core i5-9400
- Core i3-9100
- Core i3-9000
However, Intel didn’t even mention the 9th-gen Core i7 CPUs in its documents for some reason.
The current Coe i7 CPUs feature 6 Cores and speculations are the 9th-gen Intel Core i7 will feature 8 cores, however, things could be different with i7 featuring 6 cores and Core i9 featuring 8 cores.
Furthermore, Intel has delayed its 10 nm Canyon Lake CPUs and is yet to reveal them. The 9th-gen CPUs were expected to be based on the 10 nm process node but the CPUs revealed in the documents reveal otherwise.
However, 10 nm Intel Core i3-8121U has popped up and according to the analysis, the 10 nm CPU features 2.7x transistor density over 14 nm.
The analysis reveals that with 10 nm process node, Intel will be able to cram in 100.8 million transistors per square millimeter and more.
