Offering something new to the mainstream desktop users, Intel
plans to hit the production lines with more Coffee Lake-S (300
Series) processors in early 2018. The customers could expect to
witness the sales by March or April. This updated line of
Coffee Lake-S chips will include dual-core, quad-core, and

Designed for premium segment, these multi-core Intel CPUs will
follow Skylake-X and Kaby Lake-X solutions; they can also be
seen as Skylake-X refresh lineup. They’ll probably be
based on 14nm++ architecture.
