    didnt even think of the i5's they will be great value now..


    AMD is there but their per-core perf sux, only bummer of a thing about zen.

    I am happy to stick to 6 core as a gamer for the most part.

    Be nice to inherit a shit load of new chipset features, notably DDR4 & M.2 but I will be going from quad-channel to dual-channel but faster anyway (just seems a downgrade :p)

    Shame only 24 pci-e lanes but I think my SLI days are done and dusted..

    hmmm is the i3-8350K interesting..

    Quad Core - 8 thread unlocked.. 4.0ghz base clock...

    basically an 7700K equivalent disguised as an i3...

    if its priced. like a 7350K... ie around $220-$250,

    surely this will be the new gamers' cpu...

    Not sure if either of the i3 specs are real. The source was pretty shady iirc

    We can live in hope...

    Intel did gift us the Pentium G4560... so anything is possible....

    the chart also suggest the Quad core units use the PCH200 series...
    which raises the possibility of current Motherboards supporting it....

    which is kind of weird.. but makes sense technically...

    Yeah. But if you can get a 16-core AMD over a 10-core Intel and can make use of all those cores... That is some damn good pressure AMD is applying.
    Single threaded performance is less of an issue in those scenarios. :thumbup:

    6-core coffee lake should make the i5 7640X, i7 7740X and i7 7800X fairly pointless from a price/performance/power standpoint.
    So I would expect the 7820X and 7900X to drop downwards in price brackets.

    And hopefully we can finally place dual core chips to rest, it has been a long time coming. Haha

    Isn't there a hardcore guy here who works at a retailer and kinda posts in threads when he gets new CPUs? Pretty sure he posted when he got a Kaby lake in a few days before? Anyone know who it is?

    Announcement is 21st, no stock to land for quite some time. Disty are already up in arms since there is a lot of 7th Gen stock sitting warehouses all over the country.

    yeah I gotta feeling they will charge a premium over the 7700K if only to enable them to keep selling the kaby lake i7s. Which will mean its HEDT pricing for the CPU

    Understandable - where you getting your info?
    Might explain the 7700k price drops on NewEgg and Amazon for over 4 weeks now (only $20 or $30 but still, for intel chips, rare)

    Ugh
    and you're probably right :mad:

    I'm very tempted to ignore the 8700k until the "real" chipset is released in early 2018 anyhow.

    I might or might not be working within this industry ;)

    The announcement is pretty well covered, but really it will be like ever other series launch. Annoucement will come first, mobile SKUs (laptop CPUs) will come 2nd and than desktop SKUs will come last. The biggest thing really is the whole shift in numbers of cores on the mainstream platform, which do have people worried.

    What?
    This is contrary to almost every other leak out there.

    There is already plenty of pics out there unannounced laptops running 8th gen mobile CPUs.

    Every single gen launch I can remember there has been an initial announcement, followed by mobile series SKUs hitting the shelves first and than followed by desktop CPU (usually i7 and i5, than i3 and than Pentium / Celeron).

    Show me said pics, your data is contradicting 3 months of leaks on /r/hardware on /r/intel - on this website, on wccftech, videocardz.com and hardforums.

    Everyone has said "surprisingly intel are doing it backwards this time, S series (desktop) CPUs first, mobile chips in January - along with the "proper" chipset (Canonlake PCH "300 series" - ie: z390 vs the z270 rebadge to z370 coming in a week)

    it's all cocked up because of Cannonlake [10nm] continual delay. 10nm process is clearly not going as planned.

    I don't think there was originally an intention to release coffee lake for mobile , nor for coffeelake-S to drag so far into 2018. (just look at the refresh chipset name - Cannonlake 300 series, but being rolled out with Coffee lake CPU's. nice and confusing.

    https://www.nextpowerup.com/news/37...n-acer-swift-3-might-be-first-laptop-with-it/

    Happy?

    5sec google search will find much more.

    I've seen enough of this shit for 5 launches now. They just look at the Intel roadmap / training PPT and focus on the desktop related slides and overlook or not look at the mobile related stuff carefully.
