There’s been news that has been popular around the internet presently. So, for those who do not know what Coffee Lake is, Coffee Lake is going to set the bar of regular mainstream (a regular mainstream desktop platform CPU from Intel to be 6 Cores).
In other words what’s going to happen is we are going to see the upping of processor cores from 4 all the way to 6. That might not sound much but from Intel’s side of things that’s very impressive because supposedly by actually pushing up the release date by quite a bit.
It’s a bit weird because from what the rumors are the socket is going to be almost identical and therefore what they are trying to do is have a larger install base of the 200 series boards. The rumors have it and yes it is a rumor so it’s not guaranteed that if you already own a motherboard that is a 200 series board you should simply flash and be simply ready for the Coffee Lake CPU. Even though there is supposedly going to be a 300 series board which is specific for Coffee Lake.
It will be introducing the new chipset so, it is a bad option necessarily to just buy with the intent of upgrading but if you already own just for the sake of argument 7600k and let’s say you bought one at launch and you do own a fairly decent motherboard and let’s say your motherboard tend to happens to be fairly decent pushing up updates. Then there’s a good possibility that you’ll be able to simply install a Coffee Lake CPU which would be a good thing for Intel’s point of view not so good for the motherboard’s vendors point of view. Because obviously no one is going to buy a 200 series of board when there’s 300 series of board available. It’s basically just cutting into their own sales figures but we’ll have to wait and see what happens.
It’s also going to be on the same process so, we are going to be seeing 14nm 6 Core processor which means in theory we are going to already have slightly high TDP as well. Anyway what’s your thoughts on this let us know in the comment section below.
