Intel's upcoming Coffee Lake-S CPUs are still only referenced as smoke and mirrors - gradually becoming denser, surely, but slowly. However, hawk-eyed users have begun noticing the usual trickle of information that precedes a product release. In this case, Intel themselves have started listing technical documentos referencing the Coffee Lake-S parts, and though these read as confidential, the hints they hide are enough to piece together some broad strokes.

The documents, available on Intel's 8th Generation Technical Library, read "Coffee Lake S 8+2 DDR4 UDIMM Reference Validation Platform Technical Documentation Kit", "Coffee Lake S6+2 S8+2 Processor Line Ballout, Signal, and Mechanical Package", and "Coffee Lake S 8+2 Processor Power Integrity Model". One interesting detail here is that these documents are listed under the 8th Generation library; this could point towards the Coffee Lake-S part (or parts) being marketed under that gen. And this would mean - following basic logic, which may not apply to Intel - that this 8th Gen CPU, albeit being equipped with 8 cores, would be compatible with 300-series chipsets, because well - those are the chipsets required to run 8th Gen Intel CPUs. Could this be the rumored 8086K?

Grasping at straws now? The 8086k is not a laptop CPU is it?

And where do we get the 8 core idea from? Because it says 8 + 2? Far as I know that makes ten and why it would relate to core count is beyond me

Coffee lake design is modular. You have a grid of 2x5 where 8 are the cores and 2 are the memory controllers.
