Even being a Coffeelake processor, all the specs of this 8 Core processor don’t make it eligible to be called as Coffeelake. So the enthusiasts are calling it a Kabylake on steroids. To make it stand out, the new processor has been tested on KBL S system (which stands for Kabylake S). So this basically makes us think that it is the same old LGA1151 platform.
Listed on different forums which are reporting it, show that it’s a 2.6 GHz 8-core chip with HyperThreading enabled. This actually might be a prototype or software error.
Speaking of its availability, there is no exact release date for the 8-core chip. Stay tuned for more updates on this.
