The 8th generation Intel® Core™ processor family and Intel® Xeon® processor E-2100M family (Coffee Lake H) 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 or Intel® CM240 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 H-series processors offer thermal design power (TDP) options of 45W (with 35W cTDP- down) for an exceptional balance of power and performance. The H-series processors are ideally suited for space-constrained and purpose-built designs such as digital signage, retail transaction terminals, and kiosks, smart cities and health care.
