You will be forgiven if you've been perplexed by Intel's 8th generation Core computer processors. Back in October 2017 I called this 8th-gen "a confusing Frankenstein-like monster", and that still holds true! The generation is a mishmash of microarchitectures cobbled together under a single umbrella term of "8th Generation", and the processors have slowly trickled out over the last seven months. Now another round of processors have been announced - less than a week after the last batch.
