Intel will launch the latest Coffee Lake processors and here’s what you need to know

After a year of Kaby Lake's retirement, Intel is taking 2018 by storm with the release of the of the Refreshed Coffee Lake based 8th Gen Intel processors.
The latest from Intel!

The Coffee Lake architecture is similar to Kaby Lake and differs only in the amount of cores (now six cores for the high-end versions) and the improved 14nm process (14nm++ according to Intel).

First up is the Intel Core i5-8300H, a fast processor for laptops with four cores. It has a base clock of 2.3GHz and contains 8MB of L3 cache. It is Hyper-Threading enabled that lets it execute up to eight threads. Intel specifies the TDP with 45 watts and therefore the i5 is only suited for big laptops with good cooling solutions.

The Intel Core i5-8300H is expected to have a similar performance with the previous Core i7-7820HQ (with 2.8GHz base clock 4.0GHz core boost). It should be sufficient for even demanding applications and games.

Another addition is the Intel Core i7-8850H that boasts six cores and clocks in base of 2.6GHz and contains 9MB of L3 cache. It is also Hyper-Threading enabled similar with the i5-8300H, meaning it can execute a total of 12 threads.

Due to the two additional cores, the i7-8850H’s performance is increased by almost 50% compared to a similar clocked Kaby Lake processor like the Core i7-7920HQ (with 3.1GHz base clock and 41.GHz core boost).
Similar with the Intel i5-8300H, the i7-8850 is specified with 45 watts of TDP and is also suited for big laptops with good cooling solutions.

How about Coffee Lake Core i9? The flagship SKU of Coffee Lake-H series will be the i9-8950HK. The chip has six physical cores with 12 threads. It is geared to run up to 4.8GHz clock on a single core while all core boost will be set at 4.3 GHz. It features 12MB of L3 cache with base clock of 2.9GHz. This shows a leap for a mobility chip and it is expected to feature a full support for overclocking. The TDP for Intel Core i9-8950HK is specified to be between 45-65 watts.

These Intel Coffee Lake processors are designed solely for laptops only. 

There are several leaks that are circling online with different tests on multiple benchmarks of these latest Intel Coffee Lake processors. But these rumors are yet to be proved until these processors hit the shelves.

The latest Intel Coffee Lake processors are best to perform with the latest H370, B360, and H310 motherboards. ASUS is one of the first to announce their latest line of the said motherboard models.
