    [News] Intel Core "Coffee Lake" Availability Scarce Until 2018: Report

    https://www.techpowerup.com/237555/i...il-2018-report

    Intel's 8th generation Core "Coffee Lake" 6-core processors aim to restore the company's competitiveness in the mainstream-desktop (MSDT) platform, which eroded to AMD's unexpectedly successful Ryzen. The chips will hit the stores a little later this month, at price-points very close to the outgoing 7th generation Core "Kaby Lake" processors; although a report by SweClockers predicts that the chips will be scarcely available until early-2018.

    Intel is launching "Coffee Lake" desktop processor family with a rather trimmed down lineup of six SKUs, two each under the Core i7, Core i5, and Core i3 brands, with the former two being 6-core, and the Core i3 being quad-core, marking an increase in core-counts across the board. While these chips will very much be available on launch-date in the retail channel, there could be an inventory shortage running all the way till Q1-2018.

    I guess I must just be missing all of the write ups. Guess there were no press samples...

    Looks like headline was correct. Haven't seen the 8700k in stock anywhere. Sold out before that article came out...after taking it all in I think I'm going pass in the 7820 I wanted and go with 8700k when I can get one.
