A recent leak at PCEva tells that the 8th generation Intel Coffee Lake-S processors will feature 6-cores with LGA 1151 Socket compatibility. The 8th generation Intel processors are also said to sport in six, four and two cores CPU configurations.

Coffee Lake-S

The leaked image details more information on Intel Coffee Lake-S that it will have three different variants in power. The enthusiast version will have 95W TDP, the corporate / mainstream will have 65W TDP while the last low power will have 35W TDP.

Furthermore, Coffee Lake-S will support 24 PCI lanes, which is exactly same as in Kaby Lake-S. Additionally, it will also support CPU-attached PCIe storage.

Interestingly, the leaked slide also tells that Coffee Lake-S will come out sometime around August 21, 2017 to October 9, 2017.

While Intel has plans in pipeline, AMD Ryzen is already launching its Ryzen 3 and Ryzen 5 processor lineups to compete its counterpart Intel processors.

The Ryzen 3 1300X has base clock of 3.5GHz and boost clock of 3.7GHz with 65 watts TDP rating. The processor has 4C/4T (4cores/4threads) and costs only $129. These sort of low-budget SKUs are only targeted to grasp the attention of average gamers or new comers to PC builds.

Nothing is known for sure at this point; take all the information as a grain of salt. The specifications and release date will be confirmed once Intel steps up and announces the news officially.
