    Finally, DDR4! The last gen CPU will look bad on spec sheets, but it's a quad core already so won't gain anything from the 8th gen (and I wonder what chipset they use, and how much it costs?)

    More to the point, it's a 45W high performance quad core, not a 15W low power quad core. An 8th generation U-series CPU would have much worse performance in most situations....
