Intel 8th Generation Processer
Intel has released it 8th generation processes late September last Year for both Laptop and Desktop. Intel 8th generation processors are also known as “Coffee Lake” which is based on 14 nm technology.
Now the question is “What is 14 nm Technology”?
Intel 14 nm Technology is based on 14 nm transistors, That improve performance and reduce leakage power. It supports a wide range of products from mobile devices to servers. Intel 14 nm technology is used to manufacture a wide range of high-performance for low-power products including servers, personal computing devices, and products for the Internet of Things. The first systems based on the Intel Core™ M processor were made available on shelves for the holiday selling season followed by broader OEM availability in the first half of 2015.
Using 2nd generation 3D tri-gate transistors, the 14 nm technology delivers industry-leading performance, power, density, and cost per transistor, and will be used to manufacture a wide range of products, from high performance to low power.
Intel 14 nm technology provides good dimensional scaling from 22 nm. The transistor fins are taller, thinner, and more closely spaced for improved density and lower capacitance. Improved transistors require fewer fins, further improving density, and the SRAM cell size is almost half the area of that at 22 nm.
It will boost up the graphics performance, Gaming performance and multitasking to the Next Level.
