Should we expect a September launch?

Last night, XFastest posted an old Intel 2018/19 product roadmap onto their website, an older roadmap which stated that Intel's 9000-series/9th Generation product lineup would release in Q1 2019, not Q3 2018. 

As usual, this roadmap caused quite a stir amongst rumourmongers, leaving some to wonder why Intel's Coffee Lake refresh was delayed and what this means for the consumer market. Releasing in Q1 2019 would place the release of eight-core Coffee Lake dangerously close to the launch of AMD's Zen 2/Ryzen 3000 series product lineup, creating a tricky situation for the company. 

Now, XFastest has updated their article with an updated roadmap, "Intel's latest 2018/2019 roadmap". This new chart lists the launch of Intel's Coffee Lake refresh processors in Q3 2018, but only for select SKUs like the i9-9900K, i7-9700K, i5-9600K and i5-9400. More Coffee Lake-S Refresh parts are set to release in Q1 2019. 

This release schedule mirrors Intel's initial Coffee Lake launch, which had high-end Coffee Lake products release in late 2017 and other SKUs (and motherboards) releasing in early-mid 2018. 

XFastest currently believes that Intel's Coffee Lake Refresh will launch in mid-September, with current-generation 8000-series products existing on the market simultaneously.

Intel's new Coffee Lake-S lineup of products is set to come to market with new Z390 motherboards, thought the Intel 9000-series is expected to work on current-generation 300-series motherboards. Z390 will not be a major upgrade over Z370, though it is likely to add USB 3.1 support and Wireless-AC support directly into the mainboard's chipset.

The i7 won't but the i9 will.

Intel have basically renamed the i5's as i7's and i7's as i9's to make it sound better.Quote

Hopefully no one will have to call 999 when their board catches fire from inadequate VRMs.
