Now let’s quickly cover the specs sheet. Part of the new 8th Generation Kaby Lake Refresh, the CPU is a direct successor to the Intel Core i7-7500U from the Kaby Lake generation and the Intel Core i7-6500U from the 6th Skylake generation. In addition, it features a total of 4 cores, support of the Hyper-Threading technology, relatively low TDP of 15W and also keeps the same 14nm manufacturing process.
What’s more, the Core i7-8550U ticks at up to 1.9 GHz base frequency, while Turbo Boost frequencies remain pretty high – 4.2 GHz ensuring fairly high multi-core and single-core performance during short workloads. The processor is also paired with the integrated Intel UHD Graphics 620 which stands out with the support for Google’s VP9 codec and H.265/HEVC Main 10.
