Today, the CPU market is in upheaval, with AMD's return to mainstream competitiveness ushering in an era where AMD's latest flagship 8-core processor is available for under £300 and Intel competing i7 8700K is available at a similar price. 

The release of Ryzen has started what could be called a "Core War" within the CPU market, with both Intel and AMD offering more cores and threads than ever before in their consumer lineups.  Right now, AMD is offering up to 8-cores and 16-cores on AMD/TR4 platforms respectively while Intel offers up to 6-core and 18-core processors on their Z370/X299 platforms. 

To counter AMD's Ryzen series processors, Intel is rumoured to be working on an 8-core Coffee Lake processor, hoping to surpass AMD's new Ryzen 7 2700X with the same core/thread counts and higher clock speeds. Now, these CPUs are starting to appear on benchmarking websites like SiSoftware database, where an 8-core, 16-thread processor has been tested on a "Kabylake Client Platform," what seems to be a testing platform for Intel processors.

The processor here is listed with a CPU clock speed of 2.6GHz, suggesting that the unknown processor is an Intel test sample. Clock speeds are expected to increase as Intel prepares their upcoming 8-core CPU for their official launch. The cache sizes on the SiSoftware Database also match what we should expect from an 8-core Coffee Lake series processor, with 2MB of L3 Cache per processor core.  Intel's use of a "Kabylake Client Platform" also suggests that the company will continue to use an LGA 1151 CPU socket.

Even though it's on the same socket, I bet Intel will lock it to Z390 boards, It's a shame they are so anti-consumer.Quote

Crap base clock too. I can see it getting near to 5ghz delidded though. Mind you, it will probably chow down on power at those clocks.Quote

This caught my eye, If you look further down this page at the bottom of the article -

You can see that Z370 is touted as working fine with 8 core coffee lake, Plus there's the little titbit that a lot of tech press and various people in the industry said when Z370 launched that there are extra pins for power delivery on Z370 boards that aren't needed on the 6 cores that are most likely for bigger chips coming later.Quote

If that truly is the case I will eat my humble pie like a good boy. Well, it will probably be a rhubarb pie from Asda with some custard on but still.

If it works then this is a sign, once and for all, that Intel have changed their ways. Or been forced to, but either way I will take it.

I quite fancy some rhubarb pie as it goes...Quote
