Apple uses processors with a TDP of 28W and Intel makes them available in the first half of each year. The 8th generation CPUs of the new MacBook Pros were launched in Q2 2018, e.g. see Intel's website for the Core i5-8259U. Many other manufacturers take the first U models available in Q3 2017 with a TDP of 15W which are less powerful.
