Last time we checked how the 8th gen Kaby Lake Refresh member – namely the Intel Core i3-8130U, performs against the 7th Generation Kaby Lake Intel Core i5-7200U and our final judgment was in favor of the former. So today we decided to compare it to Intel Core i5-8250U and see if it manages to keep its superior position.
We start off with Intel Core i3-8130U which is based on the Kaby Lake Refresh architecture (8th gen) with a total of 2 cores and 4 threads. Manufactured through a 14 nm process, the chip supports the HyperThreading technology. In addition, it ticks at 2.20 GHz base frequency and can reach up to 3.40 GHz turbo speed. The specs sheet is complemented by 4MB last level cache, a dual-channel memory controller supporting LPDDR3-2133 or DDR4-2400 and a relatively low TDP of 15W. The integrated GPU here is Intel UHD Graphics 620 clocked at 300-1050 MHz.
