The new generation of AMD Ryzen processors seem to have awaken Intel from its numbness. Therefor Intel is preparing an avalanche of new processors, bringing a greater performance leap than the usual one for this period. While in the case of the 7th generation Intel officials promised a 15% performance increase, the 8th generation promises a lot more. It seems that this performance improvement will reach 30%.
