Together with the launch of the new wave of Coffee Lake processors, Intel also showed some new case badges. This is a new marketing initiative to push Optane. Systems builders will be able to slap a new sticker on systems with an Intel 8th Gen Core processor and Intel Optane storage. These new platforms will be known as Core i5+, Core i7+, and Core i9+. Basically, nothing special.
