2018 New Intel Processors with Quick Sync Video [List & Review]

Intel Core i3-8130U Processor
The 8th generation Intel i3 model was launched in early 2018 as the same as traditional i3 models with 2 cores relying on hyperthreading. Not AMD Radeon graphics but Intel UHD Graphics 620 (integrated graphics unit) was packed in this 2018 new Intel model supporting resolution up to 4K @60Hz, Intel Quick Sync Video, DirectX to well handle UHD video processing, virtual reality, gaming and other entertainment jobs. Intel Optane Technology brings efficient and stable performance for tasks, and Intel Online Connect offers security for online browsing, logins and payment.

Intel Core i5-8305G Processor
Intel announced i5-8305G but hasn't launched it yet. This upcoming Intel processor has 4 cores based on Kaby Lake G architecture. Till now, it's the first i5 model using AMD Radeon RX Vega M GL graphics as discrete graphics with the ability of H.264/H.265 hardware encoding/decoding plus Intel HD Graphics 630 (processor graphics) including QSV to deliver grossly fast speed to stream, play and edit videos. On the other hand, HBM2 memory and 65 Watt TDP uplifts the performance to make it superior to implement demanding tasks.

Intel Core i7-8705G/8706G/8709G/8809G Processor
With i5-8305G processor, there are another 4 Intel i7 chips powered by AMD Radeon RX Vega M graphics were announced in CES 2018. Due to the discrete GPUs plus 4GB memory, computing on content creating, 4K video editing, game-play and multi-tasking arrives with outstanding performance. What we should mention is "deep immersive VR experience" on portable laptops and mini-PC benefiting from new Intel processors with Radeon graphics. 3D processing goes easier and smoother, from 3D image creation, 3D rendering/shading and other challenging tasks.

Although the new Intel i7 CPUs roughly share the same features and technologies, there are some differences. The following specifications comparison may give you a hand for choosing the most appropriate model. All differences are highlighted.
