Intel’s plans regarding the upcoming Coffee Lake were making a lot of the enthusiasts go crazy about it and to make it easier for them, some leaksters have got information regarding the upcoming 14nm CPU stars. The Coffee Lake processors will hit the shelves in 2018 but the latest rumors coming right from the rumor mill have claimed that the Core i7, Core i5, and laptops using the Coffee Lake processors will flaunt 6 cores.
As Reported By CPCHardware
A famous hardware forum CPCHardware has claimed that many of the upcoming Intel SKUs will have six cores. Starting off with the flagship ‘i7 8700K‘, it is reported that the enthusiasts can witness 6 cores and 12 threads with hyper threading enabled. The base clock speed of the last iteration of the 14nm processor will be 3.7GHz and the TDP is said to be around 95W. A similar SKU known as non-K i7 8700, will feature almost same specs with a slightly lower base frequency of 3.2GHz.
Same 6 core news goes for some of the i5s coming under the Coffee Lake label but obviously, Intel has to remove hyper threading so that a clear difference remains between the two to justify the price difference. However, the ‘Core i5 8600K’ will be coming with a 3.6GHz base clock speed and a 95W TDP.
Something Big is Coming
According to the same report, Intel has decided to take the microchip business to a new level. The company now aims to roll out its first ever pure mobile six-core CPU. The lower-end CPUs are said to be having a 45W TDP rating which will be an open call for competition to AMD.
