The R2208WT2YS server supports memory capacities up to 3TB of DDR4 and has 80 PCIe Gen 3 lanes to power the available PCIe expansion slots which can be used for Intel Xeon Phi co-processors and Intel TXT technology.
The 8th Generation of Core processors will offer three different microarchitectures including Kaby Lake Refresh, Coffee Lake, and Cannon Lake. Hopefully, this new strategy will allow for longer platform lifespans, and help to avoid the generation change every new microarchitecture brings. Right now we get to talk about Intel's official changes to their Core lineup, but we will focus primarily on the U-series of processors as that is what is launching first. The U-series is typically rated at 15W, and are very popular in thin notebooks and more powerful tablets.
