Intel has been expanding its Coffee Lake CPU portfolio and now the company has announced a slew of Intel Coffee Lake CPUs for notebooks and laptops ranging from Core i3 to Intel Core i9-8950HK and not only that Intel is also expanding its Intel Cofee Lake desktop CPU range.
Intel Coffee Lake CPUs announced for notebooks and laptops include a total of 11 processors with Intel Core i9 8950HK leading the mobile CPUs in terms of performance.
Let us start with the Intel Coffee Lake H-series mobile CPUs. Leading the new H-series Intel Coffee Lake CPUs is the Intel Core i9-8950HK with a base clock speed of 2.9GHz and the boost clock is 4.6GHz.
However, the boost clock for Intel Core i9-8950HK can go up to 4.8GHz thanks to Thermal Velocity Boost or TVB but, to reach this level of boost clock a certain criteria is to be met.
Intel Core i9-8950HK and Xeon E-2186M are the only CPUs in H-series to feature Thermal Velocity Boost. Furthermore, the Core i9 features a 12 MB cache. Other H-series CPUs announced by Intel include Xeon E-2176M, i7-8850H, i7-8750H, i5-8400H, and Core i5 8300-H.
The Intel Core i9-8950HK recently pooped up online for ACER Predator Helios 500 with Nvidia GTX 1070, 16 GB DDR4 RAM and 256GB M.2 SSD.
Other Intel Coffee Lake mobile CPUs announced are for U-series with Intel Core i7-8559U leading the U-series. There are a total of four CPUs in the Intel Cofee Lake U-series CPUs including Core i7-8559U, Core i5-8269U, Core i5-8529U and Core i3-8109U.
All the processors in Intel Cofee Lake U-series feature 4 Cores and 8 threads except for i3-8109U which features 2-cores and 4-threads.
Intel Coffee Lake desktop CPUs along with mobile CPUs, all of them, will be using Intel 300 series chipset platform. The following are the CPU with which Intel is expanding its Desktop CPU range.
All of these mobile and desktop Intel Cofee-Lake CPUs feature support for Intel Optane memory solutions and a new Optane-fueled Data Drive Acceleration.
The Optane-fueled Data Drive Acceleration helps the secondary HDDs by boosting their load times. According to Intel, Data Drive Acceleration will provide up to 4.7X faster game loading and up to 1.7X faster media loading.
Intel has also completely redesigned its upcoming Cascade Lake and Coffee Lake chips to counter Spectre and Meltdown security exploits.
