    I don't think the M3-7y30 is available anymore , at least not in numbers. So that would have been a reason for the switch to the 8100Y

    Yes, I can imagine that as well.
    Aditionally, the 8100 is not THAT big upgrade. I don' t think you really notice that in real life.

    Yeah, I google'd a compare between these chips and they indeed look almost identical in every aspect. Sounds like the replacement was just because the older one is not available anymore. Producion lifespan of mobile CPUs seems to get lower and lower these days.

    Every week a new Smartphone.
    Isn't that what customers and manufacturers want?

    It is around 10-30% Clockspeed difference, not much but in some cases you might feel a moderate difference. This is due to a slightly improved manufacturing process. But that's it, is the same chip:

    7th gen:
    Processor Base Frequency
    1.00 GHz
    Max Turbo Frequency
    2.60 GHz

    8th gen:
    Processor Base Frequency
    1.10 GHz
    Max Turbo Frequency
    3.40 GHz

    German explanation:

    "Same thing but they use an improved version of the same manufacturing process which allows moderately [they claim 'significant'] higher clockspeeds."

    "Im Vergleich mit Skylake und Kaby Lake hat Intel die zugrundeliegende Mikroarchitektur praktisch unverändert übernommen, sodass sich keine Unterschiede in der Pro-MHz-Leistung ergeben. Der gereifte 14-Nanometer-Prozess (nicht 14nm+) erlaubt jedoch deutlich höhere Frequenzen als bisher."
