We love a good leak, and it appears that German IT distributor bluechip Computer has struck gold with information on new chipsets incoming from both AMD and Intel. While we present this information with a skeptical eye, it does mesh with previous leaked details that we've covered and what we've heard from our own channel sources. Looking at the first slide below, we see that AMD has at least two new chipsets arriving over the course of the next two months. The first is the Z490, which is set to launch next month, and the B450, which is set to bow in late July. For those not in the know, Z490 is supposedly a more feature-filled version of the existing AMD X470 chipset and is reported to have four... Read more...
AMD just released its 2nd Gen Ryzen processors based on Zen+, with the range-topping, flagship model being the Ryzen 7 2700X. However, Senior Vice President Jim Anderson is hinting that a faster chip, the Ryzen 7 2800X, will become the new flagship of the mainstream Ryzen family later this year. It's no secret that Intel is preparing to unleash an 8-core Coffee Lake-S processor for enthusiasts, likely sometime this summer or in the fall. The processor would sit above the current 6-core Coffee Lake-S processors, yet below Intel's mega-core HEDT family. So, it makes sense that AMD would want to be ready to launch a counterattack if need be. So why didn't AMD release the chip along with... Read more...
Intel earlier this month unloaded a slew of mobile- and desktop-based 8thgeneration Coffee Lake processors. Range-topping SKUs featured 6 physical cores capable of executing 12 threads. However, new technical documents uncovered on Intel's website suggest that 8-core Coffee Lake parts could be arriving later this year. Current Coffee Lake parts are referenced as "Coffee Lake S 6+2", which refers to 6 physical cores and the integrated GPU (in this case, GT2 graphics). The new listing is shown as "Coffee Lake S 8+2", which would should translate into 8 cores along with GT2 graphics. This shouldn’t be too surprising, as we’ve already seen engineering samples...

Intel is releasing a new batch of Coffee Lake processors, most of which are low power SKUs. Several of them appear on Amazon's marketplace through third-party sellers, and it appears ASUS has listed the full stack. The new CPUs bring the full lineup count to 23 chips with TDPs ranging from 35W to 95W, and prices ranging from just $50 for the lowest end part to $370 at the top of the Coffee Lake totem pole. While not officially launched, leaks on Amazon and listings by hardware partners like ASUS typically indicate that retail availability is just around the bend. it has also been rumored that Intel will release a new Z390 chipset supporting 8-core processors at some point, with a SuperMicro C7Z390-PGW...

We are all patiently waiting for Intel to release processors based on its 10-nanometer Cannon Lake architecture, but in the meantime, the company may not be finished extending out its Coffee Lake play. A leaked roadmap indicates that Intel is brewing several more Coffee Lake lines, including desktop, mobile, and server solutions, all of which will debut later this year and stretch into 2019. Starting with the server market, the leaked roadmap shows Intel releasing a Coffee Lake-E line in the second quarter of this year. Normally the "E" designation would point to a high-end desktop (HEDT) processor, but Intel switched things up recently with its Core-X series (Kaby Lake-X and Skylake-X) and now... Read more...
  We’re just getting our heads wrapped about Kaby Lake-X and Skylake-X (aka, the Core X-Series), and here we are staring at Coffee Lake. Coffee Lake represents the fourth and latest major iteration of Intel’s 14nm process, which started with Broadwell in 2014. Coffee Lake processors are set to debut in 2018, and will offer up to six cores for mainstream PCs. Today, we’re witnessing a supposed Coffee Lake-S chip in action via a SiSoft Sandra benchmark. The processor is identified as a Genuine Intel CPU 0000, which denotes an engineering sample. Other specifics regarding the processor identify it as a Kaby Lake-S part (which is expected since it is not fully supported in software yet). What’s... Read more...
