Intel to release a 6-core mainstream "Coffee Lake" CPUs in 2018

 

Intel is now rumoured to release a 6-core "Coffee Lake" CPU in 2018 for the mainstream desktop range on their existing 14nm process. This new CPU should come after Intel's upcoming Kaby Lake processors and will arrive shortly after their 10nm Cannon Lake silicon, which are designed to offer low power draw for small form factor or mobile computing.  

 The most noteworthy thing about Coffee late is that this is the first time that Intel has increased the CPU core count on their mainstream sockets since their Core 2 Extreme, marking a big change for the company if these leaks are true.  

 

Intel to release a 6-core mainstream

 

If the above table is correct Intel's 6-core "Coffee Lake" CPUs will release in 2018 in 2-core, quad-core and hex-core variants and will use Intel's GT3e graphics. 

If the above table is correct there will be two main Coffee lake chips in development for desktop platforms, a single 126mm^2 version and a 149mm^2 version, with the smaller variant having 4 CPU cores and one with 6 CPU cores. This will mean that quad core Coffee Lake CPUs will not be created using a Hex-core unit with two disables cores. 

Right now it looks like Intel will be creating Coffee lake on a more advanced version of their 14nm manufacturing node rather than 10nm, hinting that Intel may be having issues creating larger, more powerful CPUs on their upcoming 10nm manufacturing process.

Intel's current generation of Intel's Skylake quad-core variants is 122.6mm^2 in size, which means that Intel's Coffee Lake CPUs will be larger than their Skylake equivalents, with the 6-core Coffee Lake CPUs being significantly larger. 

Intel's Coffer Lake CPUs are expected to be released in Q1 2018 with Intel's upcoming 300-series chipset and on an entirely new CPU socket.

Oooooooooh! Interesting!
This may justify an upgrade from my 4770k if it really does turn out to be true.
Time to save up? hahaQuote

If Zen is what I think it is they will need a mainstream 6 core CPU far, far sooner than that.

I've been playing with my lady's rig tonight (mine now) and Windows 10 seems to like using all 8 cores, and boosting the ones it is using. It's very clever.Quote

I'm more excited than I should be for Zen and Vega Quote

Why get excited when there in house benchmarks or whatever you know in house benchmarks are going to be skew

Wait for 3rd parties and then get excited.Quote

Do correct me if I am wrong, but I think these are only for mobile devices? I believe desktop will only have: Cannonlake, Ice Lake, Tiger Lake.Quote
