With the holiday season quickly approaching, we have heard numerous rumblings that the 9th gen CPUs hinted at since last year will be arriving soon and thanks to a recent report by Wccftech, we now have a pretty reliable rumor that Intel will launch the new 9th gen CPUs with the Z390 series at the start of October.
According to the article, the Intel Core i9-9900k will be an 8-core and 16-thread CPU while the Intel Core i7-9700K will be an 8 core part without hyper-threading, marking the first time ever on the desktop that Intel is releasing an i7 without hyper-threading. Following this, Intel will then [...]
Several weeks ago, Intel and rival AMD made headlines when the two companies announced that Intel would begin using AMD Vega graphics in some of its mobile CPUs. It appears that the first SKU is finally rolling off the production line with the model name Core i7-8809G.
The Core i7-8809G carries a 4 core, 8 thread CPU. When Intel teased this chip in November 2017, it did so under the moniker “Kaby Lake G”, which suggests that it’ll likely feature Kaby Lake architecture with some tweaks rather than the new Coffee Lake architecture that’s rolling out on some of the newer 8th Generation Core Processors.
The graphics die is the center of discussion of [...]
Following the release of the 8th generation “Kaby Lake-R” mobile CPUs last month, Intel has finally launched its 8th generation “Coffee Lake” CPUs.Model Core i7-8700K Core i7-8700 Core i5-8600K Core i5-8400K Core i3-8350K Core i3-8100K Cores / Threads 6/12 6/12 6/6 6/6 4/4 4/4 Frequency (Base/Boost) 3.7Ghz / 4.7GHz 3.2Ghz / 4.6GHz 3.6Ghz / 4.3GHz 2.8Ghz / 4GHz 4Ghz / NA 3.6Ghz / NA Cache 12MB 12MB 9MB 9MB 8MB 6MB TDP 95W 65W 95W 65W 91W 65W Price $359 $303 $257 $182 $168 $117
Coffee Lake uses an improved version of the 14nm FinFET. Though there’s still no transistor node shrink (we’ll have to wait until Cannonlake in [...]
Several weeks ago, an Intel presentation slide was leaked detailing Intel’s upcoming chipset roadmap. The roadmap revealed a previously unknown Z390 chipset, which is a consumer enthusiast chipset coming in the 2H2018.
At the time, little additional details of the upcoming chipset was revealed however, according to a recent forum post on Notebook Review by a representative for system integrator, Eurocom, it appears that the Z390 chipset will support 8-core/16-thread CPUs that Intel may be releasing to accompany the new chipset. If this rumor is accurate, this will be the first time Intel’s mainstream platform will have 8-core/16-thread [...]
With Coffee Lake on the horizon and Kaby Lake released last year, a new article from Computerbase.de reveals that Intel is discontinuing its 6th Generation Core processor family, codename Skylake.
According to the article, Skylake production has ceased however, processors will continue to be available to be ordered until March 2018 with the final shipments available until September 2018. Next up is likely to be Kaby Lake although no information is available as to when it will be discontinued. That said, once Coffee Lake is released and the six-core performance CPUs hit the market, there will be little incentive for consumers to continue investing in older generation [...]
Geekbench scores of to Intel’s upcoming 6-core Coffee Lake family (i7-8700K, i7-8700, i5-8400) has recently been revealed in the Geekbench database.
Unlike the previous Geekbench leak, which was clearly a very early sample with not even a concrete processor name attached, the new leak now provides a clear image of the new processors complete with the processor names, codenames, etc.Manufacturer Intel AMD Model i7-8700K i7-8700 i5-8400 i7-7700K R7 1700X R7 1700 Single-Core Score 5,541 5,539 4,991 5,733 4,071 3,891 Multi-Core Score 23,996 22,249 19,799 18,800 20,988 19,883 Core Count 6 Cores / 12 Threads 6 Cores / [...]
Intel recently announced the first member of its 8th Generation Core processors, Kaby Lake R, with Coffee Lake and Cannon Lake coming down the line.
Kaby Lake R(efresh) is Intel’s Mobile 8th Generation Core processor still using the same 14nm FinFET process node as Intel’s Kaby Lake lineup of CPUs. While a transistor size shrink won’t happen until the release of Intel’s Cannon Lake CPU, there are some major design changes which Intel says will provide some substantial performance and power efficiency benefits.Manufacturer Intel Model i7-8650U i7-8550U i5-8350U i5-8250U Core Count 4 Core / 8 Threads 4 Core / 8 Threads 4 Core / [...]
In a recent press release, Intel announced that they’ll be launching the 8th Generation Core Processors, codename Coffee Lake, on August 21 at 8AM PDT. For users of Facebook, the launch of the new processors will be live-streamed via Facebook Live on Intel’s Facebook page or another live-stream will be available at Intel’s Newsroom.
Intel’s upcoming Coffee Lake 8th Generation Core Processors are expected to be Intel’s fourth iteration of processors on their 14nm manufacturing process following Intel’s Broadwell, Skylake, and Kaby Lake architectures.
Aside from rumors, very little is known about Coffee Lake however, [...]
As the Intel’s upcoming 8th Generation Core Processors, codename Coffee Lake, nears its official launch, numerous leaks have been springing up on the CPUs. However, little was previously known about the Coffee Lake platform and chipset. Until now.
In a new leak, we now have what appears to be official Intel presentation slides on the upcoming processors as well as information about the chipset and platform.
For starters, here’s the roadmap for Intel’s desktop CPUs from 2Q2017 to 2Q2018. We can see that Coffee Lake-S CPUs along with Kaby Lake Refresh PCH are expected to launch sometime towards the tail end of 3Q2017 with the Cannon Lake [...]
Ahhh. Competition is such a sweet, sweet thing. As AMD has finally “Ryzen” from the ashes as a competent competitor in the CPU arena, Intel is now scrambling to find a way to answer back. Intel’s first offensive was the launch of the new Core i9 series and the revamp of the HEDT platform. According to a new article from French tech publication, CanardPC, it looks like the next offensive is rebooting the mainstream platform with several new 6-core/12-thread processors for the LGA 1151 socket as well as rebooting mobile CPUs with even more cores than ever before.
The upcoming processors will be based on Intel’s 8th Generation Coffee Lake [...]
