Intel in 2018/2019
The main roadmap confirms Coffee Lake-S to last until at least Q1 2019. Shortly after the rest of mid-range CFL-S SKUs become available Intel has plans to release Coffee Lake-H, consumer high-end gaming mobile series. The roadmap also lists Cascade Lake-SP as Skylake-SP replacement and Coffee Lake-E as Kaby Lake-E replacement.
Interestingly the roadmap only lists two CFL-H processors: Core i7-8850H and i5-8400H. It’s possible that Core i9-8950HK we covered yesterday will arrive at the same time as 8-core CFL-S for the desktop platform.
More parts will be added to CFL-S lineup, including T parts of existing SKUs and Pentium/Celeron models.
Cascade-Lake SP is confirmed as Purley Refresh. It brings some new features, such as neural network instructions, DDR-T/Apache Pass DIMM support and frequency improvements.
