New driver readme appears to confirm 'Coffee Lake S Refresh' series name
TechRadar claims to have found an ASUS driver that is compatible with several next-generation chipsets. It is apparently known as the Intel Graphics Accelerator Driver. After its download, TechRadar went through it in detail and found a descriptive readme file. Its text names some upcoming Intel processor lines that will be involved in releases for the foreseeable future.
This file appears to list several 7th, 8th and earlier generations of Intel platforms with which it is compatible. The most striking of these is the "Coffee Lake S Refresh" line, which is listed among the "8th Gen Intel(R) Core(TM) processor family". This is a little odd, as it was thought that the refreshed Coffee Lake would not go by the S suffix any more.
The "8th gen" lines also includes a Kaby Lake refresh - which does not get an S in its name. The readme also lists some more conventional subjects, including Apollo Lake, Gemini Lake and the Xeon E3 v5. It also includes Whiskey Lake, which should be launching alongside the refreshed Kaby and Coffee Lakes later this year.
