Even though Intel just finished showing off a Cannon Lake wafer for the first time, the more immediate release on the desktop is Coffee Lake, a sort of stop-gap solution to satiate users who are pining for something new. Having already launched in mobile form, Coffee Lake will arrive on the desktop very soon. In the meantime, a new set of benchmarks for Intel's top-end Coffee Lake processor, the Core i7-8700K, has found its way to the web.One thing to look forward to with Coffee Lake is a bump in core count on several of the SKUs. Starting with the Core i5-8400 and going on up to the Core i7-8700K, these will be the first 6-core chips from Intel aimed at mainstream users. Two of the four 6-core... Read more...
We've been talking a lot about Intel's upcoming Coffee Lake architecture for the past few months, and are eagerly awaiting its arrival. However, it appears that Intel has even more potent chips in the pipeline that will go beyond the hexa-core chips that will highlight Coffee Lake. Heads (and eyes) are probably rolling at Intel HQ, because a representative for Eurocom confirmed that Intel's Z390 chipset will be launching during the second half of 2018. That much was known thanks to leaked roadmaps that have made their way to the internet. An interesting tidbit of information that was also revealed, is that there will be enthusiast CPUs using this chipset that will feature 8 cores and 16 threads.... Read more...
For those Intel fans out there who are waiting in anticipation for Intel Coffee Lake to arrive, some new information has leaked today. Word is that the 8th gen Intel Core parts, Coffee Lake, will be available starting in early October. That fits right in with the rumor we heard in early August that Coffee Lake would be launching in Q3. It's curious though that the fancy MSI Z370 Godlike Gaming mainboard that leaked recently, and is design specifically for the Coffee Lake platform, is tipped to not launch until Q4. It would be odd for MSI to hold off on launching that board until that long after the CPUs launched. However, this tidbit just in...     Technically, October is... Read more...

We are expecting Intel to launch its desktop Coffee Lake lineup relatively soon, and reinforcing that notion is a leaked roadmap that shows the company's Z370 chipset arriving in the fourth quarter of 2017, and perhaps even a little bit earlier. Considering that we are at the tail-end of the third quarter, based on the roadmap, there is a chance we could see desktop Coffee Lake CPUs and accompanying Z370 motherboards towards the end of this month or sometime in October. It all depends on how you look at the roadmap and how much trust you put into its validity. Assuming it is the real deal, the Z370 bar begins at the tail-end of Q3 and extends through all of 2018.

We are still waiting for Intel to serve up its Coffee Lake processor lineup on the desktop. Barring a last minute change of plan, Coffee Lake CPUs will require a new motherboard even though they will use the same LGA 1151 socket that is compatible with Kaby Lake. Once such contender has emerged on the web—MSI's Z370 Godlike Gaming, a high-end motherboard based on Intel's forthcoming Z370 chipset.Based on previous leaks and rumors, we are expecting Coffee Lake and Z370 motherboards to arrive sometime in the fourth quarter of this year. We also expect to see plenty of motherboard announcements leading up the launch of Coffee Lake on the desktop, as seems to always happen whenever there is a new... Read more...
Based on leaked results over the past few weeks, it appears Intel is on the right track with its 8th generation Core desktop processor lineup (Coffee Lake). We will not know for sure until we have had an opportunity to put finalized silicon through the ringer, but in the meantime, benchmark results continue to pop up on the web. The latest batch is from a SiSoftware SANDRA run in which Intel's Core i7-8700K and Core i5-8400K processors were put to the test. Staring with the Core i7-8700K, it is a unique chip in that it will be the first mainstream processor from the Santa Clara chip maker to feature 6 physical cores and 12 threads. Up until Coffee Lake, Intel has been content to limit its mainstream... Read more...
After announcing its 8th generation Core i7 and Core i5 mobile lineup earlier this week, we are now waiting for Intel to roll out desktop processors based on the same Coffee Lake architecture. One of the chips we are most intrigued with is the upcoming Core i3-8350K, Intel's first Core i3 part to wield four physical cores. Interestingly enough, someone got their hands on one and ran some benchmarks.We will get to those in a moment, but first let us go over some more details. Not only is the Core i3-8350K a quad-core processor, it is clocked fast out of the gate at 4GHz. There is no boost clock nor does it support Hyper Threading, but it does have an unlocked multiplier to make overclocking easier.... Read more...
There has been a lot of information leaking out regarding Intel's Coffee Lake processors over the past few months. Everything from cache levels to clock speeds to core counts have been making the rounds on the internet. Now, a new leak out of China gives us an early glimpse of Intel’s own guidance for Coffee Lake performance compared to the current generation Kaby Lake processors. As you can see in, Intel is promising some decent performance gains in single-threaded benchmarks, with the flagship Core i7-8700K offering an 11 percent gain over the current Core i7-7700K. Multi-threaded performance also jumps by just over 51 percent, which is partially attributed to the fact that the chip has six... Read more...
Intel is promising "amazing performance and responsiveness" from its Ice Lake processor family, and in doing so has officially confirmed the successor to the 8th generation Core processor family. Not many details were shared—other than hyping up the performance, Intel said its Ice Lake chips will be built on its 10-nanometer+ (10nm+) process technology, which will succeed Cannon Lake. Following all of these product names can be a bit confusing, so we will try to clear things up as best we can. On Monday, August 21 (same day as the upcoming total solar eclipse), Intel will launch its 8th generation Core processor line based on its Coffee Lake architecture. As the successor to Kaby Lake, Intel's... Read more...
It looks as though Coffee Lake isn’t just going to bring us the first mainstream hexa-core processors from Intel, but also a shakeup in the lower-end Core i3 family. According to a new leak from a Chinese website, there will be at least two, quad-core, Core i3 offerings on the way from Intel. The first is the Core i3-8100. This will be a true quad-core part with a base frequency of 3.6GHz. It has 6MB of Intel Smart Cache, a GPU clock of 1.1GHz and a TDP of 65 watts. The more interesting chip, however, is the Core i3-8350K, which has a base clock of 4GHz, supports overclocking, features 8MB of Smart Cache, a 1.15GHz GPU clock and a TDP of 91 watts. Intel has traditionally given its Core i3 processors... Read more...
Intel is teaming up with Facebook to unveil its 8th generation Core processor family, otherwise known as Coffee Lake. The unveiling will take place in about two weeks on Monday, August 21, 2017 through Facebook Live, a decision that underscores the power of social media and in particular that of Facebook. Not by accident, Intel chose that date because it coincides with a solar eclipse in the US. "Watch as two exciting moments align: the Great American Solar Eclipse and the unveiling of Intel’s most powerful family of processors for the next era of computing. Hear from those who are at the center of creating this technology and from creators who are using the power of 8th Gen Intel Core technology... Read more...
Intel is getting ready to launch its 8th generation Core processor lineup, otherwise known as Coffee Lake. There is not a whole lot we know about Coffee Lake at this point, other than it being another 14-nanometer refresh (Cannon Lake will represent a move to 10nm). While we await official word from Intel, leaked specs seem to have found their way to the web. A Chinese-language website claims to have confirmed a fleshed out desktop lineup consisting of five Coffee Lake processors, include two Core i7 chips, two Core i5 models, and a single Core i3 SKU, the latter of which will be the only one of the bunch with less than six physical cores (it's a quad-core chip with Hyper Threading support)....

Over the past few months, we’ve seen various leaks regarding Intel’s upcoming 8th generation ”Coffee Lake” Core processors. Most of the leaks have pertained to core counts and clock speeds, with the top-ranging SKUs sporting 6 cores and 12 threads, which is music to the ears of enthusiasts. However, a prominent motherboard manufacturer has confirmed one bit of bad news regarding Coffee Lake that will leave many banging their heads against their keyboard. The official Twitter account for a prominent motherboard manufacturer over the weekend responded to a question regarding Coffee Lake compatibility with existing 200-Series LGA 1151 motherboards. The response was quite sobering to say the... Read more...
Barring a surprise launch from Intel (and we are not ruling that out), Coffee Lake will represent the last hurrah for processors built on a 14-nanometer manufacturing process, at least from the Santa Clara outfit. After that we are looking at Cannon Lake, the first desktop processor architecture from Intel to be built on a 10nm process. In the meantime, there has been another leak of Coffee Lake, with this latest one providing details on Intel's upcoming 6-core chips.Though Coffee Lake will be built on a 14nm process, it will include further optimizations for added performance and power efficiency. Specifically, Coffee Lake is supposed to offer a 30 percent bump in performance from the same power... Read more...
At some point between now and the end of the year, Intel will launch its eighth-generation Core processors, built around the Coffee Lake microarchitecture. It'll come at an interesting time, since it'll really be the first time in all of Core's lifetime that AMD has been truly competitive. It'll also be interesting because it'll be yet another Core generation built on a 14nm process. Intel would love to shrink it down, we're sure, but it's just not ready enough to support a wide launch. Intel's first 10nm (Cannonlake) parts should come towards the end of this year or early next, but they won't initially impact Coffee Lake's lineup, as Intel's focus will be on dual-core parts. Given the current... Read more...
Back in late June, we got out first glimpse at Intel’s upcoming Coffee Lake-based processors. Unlike previous mainstream Intel processors, these Coffee Lake parts came packing six cores and 12 threads. The engineering sample that made its way to SiSoft SANDRA featured a base clock of 3.1GHz, a turbo clock of 4.2GHz, 256KB L2 cache and 9MB L3 cache. However, a new report is shedding some additional light on at least four upcoming Coffee Lake desktop processors. The first is the alleged Core i7 8700K. The processor is said to have six cores, a base clock of 3.7GHz, 12MB L3 cache and a 95W TDP. Being that this is a “K” part, it will be unlocked, making it suitable for overclockers. There will also... Read more...
For the second time in less than a week, leaked benchmarks are giving us a glimpse of what to expect from Coffee Lake, which represents the fourth and latest iteration of Intel's 14-nanometer process. The latest leaked benchmarks come courtesy of Geekbench. On display is a 6-core processor with 12 threads clocked at 3.19GHz. It also has 1.5MB of L2 cache and 12MB of L3 cache. Let's talk a bit about this processor before we dive into the Geekbench scores. The chip in question is an engineering sample and not necessarily finalized silicon. Engineering samples get sent out to motherboard makers, OEM partners, and sometimes members of the press ahead of an official launch. Depending on early the... 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...
Since Intel disrupted its traditional tick-tock processor release cadence with Kaby Lake, the second consecutive tock behind Skylake and the third generation CPU family based on a 14-nanometer manufacturing process, it's had free rein to mix things up. That makes things interesting when it comes to leaked roadmaps—you never quite know what to expect. For example, there was speculation that Intel would base its upcoming Coffee Lake architecture on Cannonlake and officially enter Intel into the 10nm era for consumer CPUs, but newly discovered info suggests that won't be the case. New slides show Coffee Lake replacing Kaby Lake in the second half of 2018. It is expected that Intel will have already... Read more...
Intel officially disrupted its "tick-tock" release cadence when it introduced Kaby Lake at the end of August, a new processor architecture that's intended to fill the gap between Skylake and Intel's long awaited transition to a 10nm manufacturing process. That will take place when Cannonlake arrives, which newly leaked roadmaps have pegged for around the fourth quarter of 2017. Kaby Lake's debut was in mobile form. Like Skylake, it's built on a 14nm manufacturing process and in fact it borrows heavily from its predecessor—its CPU cores, cache structure, and graphics engine are all similar to Skylake. However, Intel baked in a number enhancements to improve overall performance, energy efficiency,... Read more...
Intel shook things up when it announced that Kaby Lake would sit in between Skylake and Cannonlake, thus disrupting its tick-tock release cadence with a third generation processor family based on a 14nm manufacturing process. Now it appears that a fourth generation family of 14nm CPUs is on the roadmap, that being Coffee Lake, which will be behind Intel's first six-core processor for mainstream users. If you want to own a six-core CPU from Intel right now, your best bet is to save up your funds and build a system around Broadwell-E or Haswell-E, both of which are aimed at enthusiasts. Intel hasn't increased the core count on its mainstream processors in several years, but according to the folks... Read more...
