    On the first slide linked, i'm sure I can make out CNL, which would have been Cannon Lake.
    Maybe it was absorbed into CFL, Coffee Lake ?

    edit :Thats for the Menlow platform, but it looks like CNL is referring to the PCH, rather than the CPU...

    This only shows that I was right when I criticized the "emergence" of dual core (Intel) CPUs, allegedly aimed at notebooks, couple of months ago. I stated then and I repeat it now: dual cores are the thing of the past, so that nowadays even simplest devices such as tablets and low end mobile phones, tend to be equipped with 4, 6 and more cores, and with the good reason, no matter is it Android or iOS or window$, x86 or ARM. But greedy companies had to "clear their shelves", hadn't they?

    There is a good reason why 2 core CPUs are still in use -> fanless laptops.
    I for one can't stand buzzing and humming or moving mechanical parts in the laptop, so fans are no-go. And no one has yet managed to cram 4 x86 cores in the fanless laptop. 2/4 is max as of yet.
