Intel Whiskey and Amber Lake show up in notebooks

14nm with better battery and connectivity

Intel has officially introduced 8th generation Whiskey Lake U-series and codename Amber Lake Y-series parts, and some of the notebooks have already started to show up at the IFA 2018 show in Berlin.

We already wrote about the new Intel 8th generation Whiskey Lake U-series and Amber Lake Y-series parts in detail earlier but now we got more details on where Intel is going with these parts as well as how some of the first OEM notebooks look and feel.

The Whiskey Lake U-series SKUs are a 15W TDP parts while the other fits the magical 5W TDP range and we had a chance to see a few systems and interesting form-factors at the press event Intel held last night in Berlin, prior to the IFA 2018 trade show.

The new 14nm architecture is optimized for connectivity in thin and light laptops as well as 2-in-1s promising great performance and battery life. We ended up chatting with Joshua D. Newman, a general manager of the 2-in-1 segment in mobility client platforms and he highlighted that Intel plays big on connectivity, high-performance WiFi, while it thrives in enabling interesting form factors and 15-inch notebook with 15W TDP CPU in about 900 grams. This is what this new generation is all about.
