Coffee Lake-based Xeons are still with us
Chipzilla has issued a product change notice (PCN) confirming the discontinuation of its 8th-generation Core desktop processor family up to the flagship Intel Core i7-9700K, along with Pentium Gold and Celeron processors based on the 14nm Coffee Lake silicon.
Most without iGPU
During its CES 2019 keynote, Intel unveiled a total of seven new Coffee Lake CPUs, mostly which are a part of the new F-series, lacking iGPU.
Just a 100-200MHz frequency bump
Following the leak that Intel will be releasing Coffee Lake-based six- and eight-core parts as its new 9000-series 9th generation CPUs, more details have shown up online revealing a minor 100MHz to 200MHz frequency bump across the lineup.
Featuring Iris Plus Graphics 655 IGP
According to a fresh report, all Intel's new NUCs will come with Iris Plus Graphics 655 IGP with 128MB of eDRAM.
6-core Coffee Lake running at 5GHz Boost
While there have been plenty of rumors regarding the Core i7-8086K CPU from Intel, the latest retail listings pretty much confirm them and show that this will be the Core i7-8700K on steroids, with a Boost clock hitting 5.0GHz.
Up to Core i9-8950HK and new G-Sync and non-G-Sync panels
Following the launch of Intel's 8th generation Core Coffee Lake CPUs, Alienware has updated its top Alienware 17 and Alienware 15 notebooks with new CPUs.
New 300-series chipsets in tow
In addition to performance and ultra low-power mobile U-series parts, Intel has also released a couple of new 8th generation Core Coffee Lake desktop SKUs, mostly in the low-power segment.
Including the Core i9 mobile CPU
At a special event in Beijing, Intel unveiled its new high-performance 8th generation mobile CPUs, including the new Core i9-8950HK and the new Xeon E-2168, both aiming at the highest-end mobile market.
Pentium, Celeron, and non-K Core i5 and Core i3
As expected, Intel has expanded its Coffee Lake lineup with new SKUs and some retailers/e-tailers have already started selling some of those chips, including non-K Core i3 and Core i5 SKUs, as well as budget-oriented Pentium and Celeron SKUs.
Higher-clocked RAM, GTX 1080 Ti, and new 500W PSU
Corsair has updated the One small form-factor (SFF) desktop PC, equipping it with the latest Intel Core i7-8700K Coffee Lake CPU, Geforce GTX 1080 Ti, faster RAM and new 500W 80 Plus PSU.
