After the release of great CPUs on the desktop market, AMD has started to quickly grow in the mobile segment as well. The new AMD Ryzen 5 2500U and Ryzen 7 2700U turned out to be great performers and as you guess, Intel must either respond fast or face a hard time. Of course, the blue team prefers the former option and it looks like after the release of Core i5-8250U and i7-8550U (which are up to 100% faster than their predecessors) Intel has something more up its sleeve.
We’re pretty happy that LaptopMedia is the first to announce the new Intel Core i3-8130U which will be Intel’s next budget hit on the market.
Core i3-8130U will be released soon and will fill the gap below i5-8250U giving manufacturers the opportunity to release laptops with more than enough CPU power for everyday tasks and light gaming while keeping the price below $450 or even $400.
Unlike i5-8250U and i7-8550U, the new Core i3-8130U will have just 2 cores (4 threads) but we don’t have information about its clock speeds yet.
Stay tuned for some more info in the coming days, here at LaptopMedia.com.
