    [News] 6-Core Intel processors going mainstream in 2018 with Coffee Lake

    http://www.guru3d.com/news-story/6-c...ffee-lake.html

    As AMDs processors close in with some Zen slowly yet steadily we see some movement at Intel as well. For ages now 4-core processors have been the norm in the mainstream desktop segment, it seems that 6-core Intel processors are finally becoming mainstream in 2018.

    In it's yearly Form 10-K document about Intel's financials the company now really makes note of a three-step cycle. So after a new procedure (die shrink), there will be a new architecture followed by an upgrade of that architecture. This way Intel can release a new processor each year. However it now seems there will even be a 4th step.

    Basically following Kaby Lake to release there will be a fourth generation processor series fabbed on the 14nm production process called Coffee Lake. It is interesting as at that same time the mobile/laptop Cannon Lake processors have already moved to 10 nm. It does make sense as Intel over a year ago announced to abandon its tick-tock model, which alternately introduced a new architecture and a new production process. Basically Intel will use whatever fab process works out the best for them practially and economically aimed at a certain target area. So there will be a fourth generation 14nm product series, in the form of Coffee Lake.

    Coffee Lake CPUs will get two, four or six cores and will get a GT3e, an on-board GPU with dedicated video memory. The processors are rated at a 35 Watt to 45 Watt TDP range.

    Well, back in the day when AMD was competetive somewhat, Intel had 6 core cpus on an almost mainstream platform.But then AMD had them also.BD was more of a 4 module part and intel was not feeling any stress.
    Im pretty sure if it wasnt for zen, intel would still go for 4 cores.Still, thats in 2018 on 14nm node, so , not that exciting.Also theres the question of price, recently because AMD`s inaptitude cpus and gpus are getting pricer by the day.

    AMD could really bend intel over here if AMD can come out the gates with a consumer 6 core Zen for 200 ish and 8 core Zen for 250 ish, which looks like they will be doing from what I've read. I'll happily take a bit of a IPC hit for a 8 core Zen. IPC "hit" being relative of course, say -12% vs a 5960X, thats about the level AMD need to be shooting for with a 8 core Zen IMO. They have to hit hard to reinspire faith in people.

    For those that haven't figured it out yet.


    These are mobile chips. And those charts were made by the author of the article. Not Intel official. Author Speculation

    Still waiting for an affordable 6-core that's also an actual single-threaded improvement over my Sandy.

    Interesting info. We will see, But Skylake is good CPU afterall and I heard Kaby Lake is a bit better in OC. So great
