Earlier this week, Intel introduced its 8th generation Core processors. The first mobile parts are the Kaby Lake Refresh chips for the laptop market and the first Coffee Lake desktop parts are expected in October. DigiTimes writes today that leading laptop makers, like ASUS and Acer, have confirmed they will ship 2-in-1 and ultra-thin laptops based on the 8th Gen processors in September.
The sources said that while general desktop and notebook PCs suffered the worst shipment records in the second quarter of 2017, market demand for gaming, ultra-thin and 2-in-1 notebooks has stayed relatively stable, prompting Intel to launch new processors for such notebooks and driving notebook brands to turn out new models to cash in on the demand.
The site writes Dell, HP, Lenovo, Huawei, Samsung, Haier and Tsinghua Tongfang will also reveal new 8th Gen Core based laptop designs in September.
