Intel Coffee Lake-U Core i5-8269U CPU specs leaked in SiSoftware Sandra
Intel’s ultra-low voltage CPU roster was refreshed back in September 2017 with four new Kaby Lake-R models. Many OEMs rushed to integrate them in updated laptop models, as tests were demonstrating their efficiency when compared to the gen 7 i7-7700HQ. The i5-8350U and the i7-8550U are currently the most popular CPUs among the gen 8 ULV models, but things could change with the new wave of Coffee Lake-U models that is just around the corner. The Core i5-8269U is a mid-range model from the Coffee Lake-U series and info on its specs was just leaked in SiSoftware’s Sandra testing suite.
At first glance, the specs for the unannounced i5-8269U look similar to the i5-8350U. The manufacturing process is 14 nm++, while the chip itself integrates 4 cores and 8 threads, also supporting Simultaneous Multithreading (SMT). However, instead of a 1.7 GHz default frequency, the i5-8269U comes clocked at 2.6 GHz. Unfortunately, there is no info on the boost clock, but, if the denominations are any indication and since 8269 is lower than 8350, the boost clock could be set to sub-3.6 GHz. Sandra also informs that the i5-8269U has a 15 W TDP, comes with 4 X 256 KB L2 / 6 MB L3 memory and it scores 105.77 GigaOperations per second, a result that place it higher than 82.97% of the tested models.
The full list of specs should be revealed with Intel’s official announcement of the Coffee Lake-U series in the coming weeks.
