Intel has recently unleashed its single new 8th-gen Core i3 processor especially aimed at ultraportable laptops and 2-in-1s. This Core i3-8130U is a dual-core CPU with four-threads, clocked at 2.2GHz with Turbo up to 3.4GHz.
With this, users might as well get integrated graphics in the form of Intel’s UHD Graphics 620, with a base frequency of 300MHz, maximum of 1GHz, and the chip also has a TDP of 15W. It even supports DDR4-2400 system memory.
Further details state that this new Core i3 is pretty much similar to its Kaby Lake predecessor. But here the main difference lies in the ability to boost up to a faster speed, with the aid for slightly faster system RAM. Further, it also features the benefits of the new architecture.
Here, Intel boasts that the chip also represents a “performance jump over the previous generation” offering “an overall experience that is optimized for speed and simplicity.”
Lastly, the company also notes that this model rounds off its initial portfolio of 8th-gen mobile processors, which was initially launched last August, and after that users would also perceive new notebooks from manufacturers using the Core i3-8130U before long.
