The 8th generation of Intel's processors is now official. Yeah, Intel has announced the CPU family/generation you probably know as "Coffee Lake" with an official press release. In it, they have informed us that the CPU lineup will be unveiled publicly over the internet with a Facebook livestream on August 21, 2017. That's less than a couple of weeks from now on!
In case you're wondering why they chose that day, it's because of the "Great American Solar Eclipse". They're trying to "align" it. Get that? If you don't know what solar eclipse is, please Google it. That's not a topic to discuss on a PC gaming site.
Let's get back to the topic. The livestream will be aired at 8AM PDT (on August 21). As for why to watch it, Intel gives us eight reasons to watch the reveal of 8th-gen processors:
