Other OEMs have already mentioned the names of Intel’s Whiskey Lake-U CPUs, but HP went ahead and leaked the core configuration, frequencies and cache size, as well. The Whiskey Lake-U family includes three models, which will be the last 14 nm++ mobility CPUs before the jump to the 10 nm process that is supposed to occur with the arrival of the Cannon Lake CPUs. Since these are ultra-low voltage CPUs, they will only power ultrabooks and mini PCs.
As with most Intel Core CPU families, the Whiskey Lake-U one comes in i3, i5 and i7 flavors. The entry-level Core i3-8145U is the only one that did not get leaked core configurations, but judging from previous iterations this CPU is most likely a dual-core model with four threads. Base frequencies are set at 2.1 GHz, while boost clocks can go up to 3.9 GHz, and it also comes with 4 MB L3 cache memory.
Next in line is the Core i5-8265U model, which get 4 cores and eight threads, with base clocks lowered to 1.6 GHz and boost frequencies reaching 4.1 GHz. This one has 6 MB of L3 cache memory. The high-end Core i7-8565U model is still capped at 4 core and eight threads, but comes with base clocks set to 1.8 GHz, while boost clocks go up to 4.8 GHz, and the L3 cache memory is upped to 8 MB.
All three CPUs integrate the Intel UHD 620 GPU with 24 execution units clocked at 300 MHz, but, depending on model, the boost clocks may reach 1,150 MHz. The Whiskey Lake-U family is expected to be officially unveiled any time soon now, and devices powered by these processors should start shipping in September.
