Intel is beginning to finally fight back against Ryzen where it counts, with a tease of their upcoming Coffee Lake-based Core i7-8550U processor.




The purported Core i7-8550U processor is a 4C/8T processor that was spotted inside of Acer's Nitro AN515-31 notebook, also packing 20GB of DDR4, and a NVIDIA GeForce GTX graphics card. This is the first time Intel's next-gen Coffee Lake CPUs have been spotted in the wild, apart from a rumor - as this one is inside of an upcoming notebook.




We should expect this notebook to cost around $750 when it launches, with no current ETA.
