coffee lake sounds good to me !
nice upgrade for my 6700k if pricing is good !
wonder what clocks will be ? if its a 4gig clock I will be happy at around $500
if not its time for a big cpu and board upgrade !

Did some googling and the Intel Celeron quad core NUC I was considering for my HTPC is really bad, if the media or player you're playing is not supported by H/W accel.

So I either buy a 7700k for a long long term beast mode HTPC or wait for Coffee.
Considering it's basically May, I think I can wait 4 months for more coffee lake rumors.

i think i read somewhere that coffee lake is coming before canon lake (both this year) but the gap between the two are months.
coffee lake is supposed to be a refined kabylake
im on my 2700k with 5.1ghz clocks so far ive had no reason to upgrade to kabylake, once canon lake comes out ill be hopping on that mofo

The only Cannonlake you're likely to see this year is For notebooks. The gap between desktop will be much larger

I keep being confused by canon lake as one week it sounds like a chipset codename, next week it sounds like a CPU codename? :/

that makes sense i guess if they go by old standards,
coffelake is the refined kabylake

i still see no benefits in upgrading my 2700k system to a kabylake
im tossing up whether to purchase a 32inch 1440 freesync monitor or a new chipset (them hard decisions), from all the data ive seen
3.5 ghz 2700k
4.2 ghz 7700k about 20% better (which can be blamed to the higher clock)
but what if you OC a 2700k to 4.2ghz and compare clock for clock? id suspect minimal difference.

Skylake/kabylake is approx 20% faster clock/clock over sandy bridge (2700k)

Coffeelake may have a small IPC uplift, but so far it sounds unlikely (i.e not use the skylake-x core's which have 512bit AVX units, and possibly other small changes)

Coffee lake 6 core is the first CPU that might be significantly worth it to 3xxx and 2xxx owners. The extra 2 cores should significantly help on the multi-threaded things and the people who own 25xx and 35xx will really notice (from 4 to 12 total threads)

Yeah 2700k @ 4.5ghz is pretty decent, still but I imagine coffee lake at 4.5ghz will be at bare minimum 25% faster in all benchmarks with decent memory. Bare minimum.

coffee lake is sounding promising if its 6 cores. im assuming itll still be using the 1151 socket?

i have not seen any benchmark to backup your claims
the only thing ive seen is 7700k stock to a 2700/2600k stock
not clock for clock.

Rumor is 6 cores on 1151 but none of us have anything concrete.

Skylake X will now have some competition:

and if you're all ready a 6 core 3xxx CPU owner with it clocked at 4.5GHZ

I still dont see much of an incentive to upgrade.

Of course, purely a guess... but something doesn't add up so far.
Maybe I was right... 6C6T i5s potentially maxing out the mainstream platform as i7s and i9s emerge for the HEDT platform.

Edit: 28 lanes max for even 8C/16T? Brutal lol

Given the recent info, Someone should start a thread for X299 SL/KL -X before ppl get confused.

i dont get the need for 8/12/16 cores... seriously, why doesnt AMD just focus on its 6 core and get its clock up to par with intel's or surpass it
thats why i think Coffee will be atleast 4.5ghz stock

plus do programs / games even use the multi - cores properly anyway?
i remember seeing bench marks where two CPU's clocked the same, one being two core 4 threads the other being 4/8 and the results showed the 2/4 had better in-game performance (i7/i3 comes to mind)
