Intel Coffee Lake processors are an evolution or a revolution?
The company Intel made in early October the launch of its eighth generation of Intel Core processors with the great novelty of increasing cores in each of its categories.
After several generations where the four cores were the dominant factor, they decided to make the leap to the six cores that for years were exclusive of the highest categories.
But this has been a change that has not generated a great reception in the public; in recent years users complained that the evolution between generations barely it provided improvements and the performance increase was much lower than expected, which has meant that processors with a few years behind their backs and previous generations are fully functional and able to withstand current requirements.
For years Intel has maintained an implicit hegemony in the cpus market, with clear advantage and preference over its rival AMD, the developments during the last years have shortage in great innovations that attract back to buyers with a pair of years.
One complaint against the company is that this release was only a response to the Ryzen processors of his opponent, who have achieved a good reception in the public and good opinions to bring closer to a larger market the possibility of having teams with multiple cores.
But not all are complaints for this product, in the end Coffe Lake is a product with great potential, with an architecture already polished, achieving a power to last a few years, with features worthy of the present and prepared for a future (such as 4K and RV) with which we are ahead of an inevitable evolution of the Intel star product. surpassing its production capacities to have stock and when finishing to pass the bitter drink that knew knowing that it would use a socket not compatible with previous generations, the eighth generation of the Intel Core can be the beginning of a revolution in the amount of cores of cpus in the years to come.
