I have this 4-core processor in an Intel NUC and it friggin screams. I don't know what it is about this specific Coffee Lake chipset - maybe the memory lane speed - but I prefer it to any desktop class 8th or even 9th gen Intel processor.

This is the BEST Class U processors that you will ever find in a ultrabook. it will surpass a Desktop pentium and even challenge the i3-8100 This CPU also has a pretty high grade intel IGP so it can acieve 720p45 The 90% average of this CPU is also Godly with its quad-core design and considering its not even a 45W chip. Runs on 28W. Sadly , this Powerful CPU is only avalible in the 13 inch macbook pro 2018 and the intel NUC.
