    New 8th Gen Intel Core i3 Processor

    Today, Intel is expanding the performance options available for mainstream laptops and 2 in 1s with the 8th Gen Intel® Core™ i3 processor. Like its 8th Gen Intel Core i7 and i5 siblings, this Intel Core i3 delivers a performance jump over the previous generation and follows in the same footsteps to provide richer, more immersive entertainment, and an overall experience that is optimized for speed and simplicity. The new Intel Core i3-8130U features 2 cores and 4 threads, up to 3.4 GHz and DDR4-2400 memory.

    This rounds out the portfolio for the first mobile processors Intel introduced in the 8th Gen Intel Core processor family in August. Expect to see new systems from our partners soon powered by the 8th Gen Intel Core i3 that give consumers even more choice in finding a great laptop and 2 in 1 with the right balance of features, performance and price that fits their needs.

    Processor Number Cores/Threads Base Freq (GHz) Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 Graphics Graphics Base / Max Freq (MHz) LPDDR3 Memory Speed Support (MHz) DDR4 Memory Speed Support (MHz) L3 Cache TDP

    Intel turbo boost 2.0, are Intel going back in technology now? or isn't the latest version needed on these processors? I thought 3.0 were supposed to allocate load on cores/threads better, seems kind of important on mainstream laptops, no?

    2 actual cores, but 4 effectively with hyper-threading. :)

    Intel is saying the top of the line i3's have 4 actual cores, plus 4 threads. Intel® Core™ i3 Processors

    i3 now has a "K" version! (unlocked). i3's have always thrived on high frequency, I expect to see some O/C in the 5-6 Ghz range.
