Intel Core-B CPUs are 65W TDP BGA Coffee Lake CPUs

One thing that slipped a bit under the radar last week was the arrival of Intel's new line of Core-B processors. These chips are named like and perform similar to the desktop processors the names are based on. The key difference is that the Core-B line uses BGA packaging, which means they'll primarily be adopted by All-in-One PCs.
The goal of the Core-B line, as we were told, is to offer embedded versions of desktop processors for AIO-type form factors with a lower z-height, enabling a more streamlined and premium design for integrated desktops. In the past this segment was supplied by Core-H or socketed Core-S processors. It is a little strange though – Intel’s own processor model tracking system, ARK, has a field for ‘embedded options available’ with the desktop processors, suggesting that they could have just said ‘yes’ and kept the name the same. But on a positive side, we can now identify which AIOs are using socketed parts compared to those using embedded parts, identified by the Core-B CPUs.
The first Core-B series has just three 65W TDP parts; the Core i7-8700B, Core i5-8500B, and Core i5-8400B. The specifications of these parts are identical to the Coffee Lake-S desktop counterparts. The actual performance may be a lower though, due to a less favorable thermal profile.
