Intel CoffeeLake-S brings 6-cores at 95W

According to the slides posted by PCEva, 8th Gen Intel Core series are confirmed to use LGA1151 socket and 6/4/2-core CPU configurations. The ‘enthusiast’ line will have 95W TDP, whereas the mainstream will stick to 65W.

The Coffee Lake-S platform will support 24 PCI lanes, same as Kaby Lake-S.

Does anyone want a Coffee?

While the next slide may be out of date is it still interesting because it gives us a glimpse on Intel production schedule. For instance, the Skylake-X architecture production window was planned for 25th week, a week before CPUs were available in stores.

According to the same slide, Coffee Lake-S CPUs are expected to enter production between 34th and 41st week (August 21, 2017 – October 9, 2017). This undoubtedly means Coffee Lake is launching this year, in fact, roadmap seems to even indicate the third quarter.

Coffee vs Cannon

It’s also worth noting that Coffee Lake-S architecture will be split available on Kabylake Refresh PCH (Z370) and Cannon Lake platforms (300-series PCH). The latter is to offer programmable quad-core audio DSP, Gen 2 of USB 3.1, Wifi-AC, SDXC 3.0 and Thunderbolt with DisplayPort 1.4:
