Intel has confirmed that its 8th generation Core processors will once again be built on a 14-nanometer process. The new CPUs are due in second half of 2017.


According to Intel, the 8th generation Core processors will offer 15 percent performance improvement. This will be the fourth consecutive year that Intel is sticking to the 14nm technology for its main processors. Currently, there are no other details about the 8th generation Core processors. A report from AnandTech suggests that the latest processors will focus on the low-voltage Y and U series processors that are mainly used in thin and light notebooks.

Intel is tipped to use 10nm Cannon Lake for ultra-low-power Y-series processors and 14nm Coffee Lake for the rest of the 8th-gen Core laptops and desktops.
