Intel Core i5-8265U and Intel Core i7-8565U Whiskey Lake are listed on SiSoft Sandra

SiSoft Sandra’s database is a popular source of leaks about the features of the new processors, this time the Core i5-8265U and Core i7-8565U based on the Whiskey Lake architecture have appeared.

The Core i5-8265U and Core i7-8565U processors are based on Intel Whiskey Lake architecture and a highly refined manufacturing process at 14 nm. The Whiskey Lake processors will come to face the third-generation Ryzen, which will be built at 7 nm FinFET and are based on the Zen 2 architecture.

The Core i7-8565U is an eight-wire, quad-core processor at a base speed of 1.8 GHz capable of achieving 4.6 GHz turbo speed, which is impressive for a very low-power processor and focused on very light notebooks. As for the integrated GPU, it will be an Intel HD 630, nothing new here. The Core i5-8265U maintains four cores and eight wires but reduces its base speed to 1.6 GHz and turbo speed to 3.9 GHz, also features Intel HD 630 integrated graphics.

In essence, we are in front of Kaby Lake-R processors but manufactured with a slightly more advanced process, which allows us to reach slightly higher frequencies. Intel is having a lot of trouble fine-tuning its manufacturing process at 10 nm, which is forcing the company to stretch its current 14 nm to levels we wouldn’t have imagined.

The most interesting thing will be to see the new desktop Whiskey Lake versus the Ryzen 3000, an Intel processor at 14 nm against an AMD processor at 7 nm, who would have thought?
