Kaby Lake R processor dye. Its that time of year when Intel, the largest maker of laptop and desktop processors in the world, announces the guts of your future. These CPUs are always a little faster and a a little more battery efficient.
This year Intel is launching its latest processor on the same day as the first major solar eclipse in North America in four decades. Kaby Lake R is the 8th generation Core processor from Intel.
Its fast, efficient, and its going to be coming to a lot of very thin laptops later this year.
This is the third iteration of the. Skylake microarchitecture, intel introduced back in 2015.
It is still a 14 nanometers, and as with its predecessors, Skylake and Kaby Lake, Kaby Lake R is still focused on speed and battery life improvements. Yet, while Intels claiming big gains in both those areas, Kaby Lake R isnt a major headline grabbing processor family like Skylake, or AMDs new Ryzen were.
While we havent had the opportunity to benchmark Kaby Lake Rprocessors against their.
Kaby Lake predecessors or the sweet Ryzen chips from AMD, we do have lots and lots of bold speed claims from Intel itself. These claims revolve around the 15 watt Kaby Lake Rprocessorsthose are the ones youre likely to find in super thin and light laptops: Think the Dell XPS 13 or Razer Stealth (though no companies have announced support for these processors yet). According to Intel, Kaby Lake R is an average of 40-percent faster than Kaby Lake when it comes to crunching numbers in Excel.
Intel also claims it can process photographs in Adobe Lightroom up to 28-percent faster and organize and edit images in a slideshow up to 48-percent faster. The chip at the heart of the Kaby Lake R CPU.saved
The biggest speed claims come when Intel compared Kaby Lake R to processors from five years ago.
According to the CPU maker, a 4K video can be rendered in just three minutes when it would have taken 45 minutes five years ago. This kind of speed comparison is Intels way of enticing old computer owners into an upgrade. What about battery life?
