Coffee Lake: Intel's mainstream hexacores appear early October

Friday, September 8th, 2017 | Gadgets

On October 5, 2017, Intel will present the 8th Gen, internally known as CoffeeLake, to core processors for desktop systems. This is evident from an entry in the merchandise management system of an unknown dealer, a corresponding screenshot was published at Reddit. The chips are the first from Intel's core series, which have six instead of four CPU cores for the LGA 115x mid-class sockets.

There are plans for six models – two Core i3, two Core i5 and two Core i7. The motherboard manufacturer Asrock has already confirmed the processors, but now removed from the list. The interesting detail: The four-core Core i3 with B0 stepping are probably simply Kaby Lake, as computer base notes. Only the Core i5 and the Core i7 with six cores use the U0 stepping and are therefore really new.

Nominally, the Coffee Lake fit into the current Socket LGA 1151, but they require new chipsets. If you have a board with Z270 or B250, can not upgrade to a sixchairs. Instead, this shows a roadmap from the Anandtech forum, the Z370 is needed. This is identical to the Z270, but supports Coffee Lake – there may be few technical reasons for this. Rather, Intel wants to give its partners the opportunity to sell new motherboards, since the Z370 is necessary.
Only next Consumer Electronics Show 2018 next January, Intel will publish further chipsets, specifically the H370, the H310, the Q370, the Q360 and the B360. In the second half of 2018 follows then the Z390, the Bluetooth and the Mac part of ac-WLAN should integrate.
