    Intel eight generation Coffee Lake SKUs are based on 14nm manufacturing process. It uses the same socket LGA 1151 as its older brother Kaby Lake processors. There have been significant changes where its contact points are different between them. This resulted in incompatibility and an uproar within the community. We got a lot of information, mostly from leaks and previews. Conveniently leaked leaks. Intel is pushing Core i3 four core and 6 core for its mid to upper SKUs- some with six threads with i5 series and some with 12 threads under i7 series. Intel is calling these desktop SKUs as S series, though to be fair that’s just going to create confusion in the market. Interesting times are back to the CPU world now that AMD got its act together with Ryzen series SKUs. Smell the air, because the lake is filled with coffee!!
