Overview

The 8th generation Intel® Core™, Pentium® and Celeron® processor families (Coffee Lake S) introduce the first 6-core processors for performance-demanding applications. These processors are manufactured on Intel's most up-to-date and optimized 14 nm technology. When paired with an Intel® 300 series chipset, these processors offer even greater CPU and graphics performance as compared to the previous generation and introduce native USB 3.1 Gen2 (10Gb/s) support. The S-series of processors enables more manufacturing flexibility to match performance, features, and price to IoT and other applications. These processors offer thermal design power (TDP) options of 65W and 35W to fit specific designs configurations with performance and low-power requirements. The S-series processors are ideally suited for applications like gaming, content creation, virtual reality, transactional retail terminals, digital security systems, and health care.
