    You have in this one news peice a claim that it is based on LGA1151 (current 100 and 200 chipset socket) then later claim that CL will require a new socket?

    I'm more interested in Cannon Lake than Coffee Lake (seriously, who thinks up these names, e.g. "Threadripper anyone?").

    Cannon Lake will be the first implementation of a 10nm process. Looks like they milked 14nm for all it was worth.

    is that 12mb of L3 cache i see? is intel finally moving on from their 6mb limit!

    Small upgrade in IPC again by looks of things, though maybe we will finally get a 6 core mainstream :s wonder if they will still use cheap TIM instead of soldering just to save a few extra cents

    3.19ghz is nothing to write home about. Think i'll stick with my 6850K and skip this new generation

    Another 14nm refresh.
    I'm not losing my time with Intel until they release something at 10nm.

    Quad-core mainstream i7 usually have 8MB of L3 though, so, what 6MB limit?

    I wonder what the final clocks for the 6-core Coffee Lake will be though.

    I imagine the series after this will get the updated cache hierarchy that Skylake-X has. Their current solution doesn't scale well for 4+ core products - obviously they can make it work its just not ideal.

    Cannon Lake was cancelled for a desktop about 1 year ago due to worse transistor performace of the first 10nm process compared to the 14nm++. There will be only ultra low power mobile parts...

    12MB L3 is there only because of 6 cores. Intel is using 2MB per core. Current 7700K with 4 cores has 8MB.
    Regarding IPC there will be no IPC gains. Coffee Lake is the same as Kaby Lake. The only difference is in the core count.
    Socket is LGA1151 but not compatible with current Z170/Z270 motherboards.

    Ice Lake will be the first desktop 10 nm CPU from Intel, expected around the same time as the Zen+ successor on the AM4+ socket and new process (rumour suggests 7 nm). They aren't milking the 14 nm process by choice, 10 nm isn't working for then yet except for the low powered versions. They do feel they need to bring out new stuff though, hence the new CPU's. Kaby Lake is pure milking though.

    ah my bad, must be thinking of the i5's 6mb limit

    hmm wonder with z170 boards will be update bios wise to support that 6c/12t 1151 would be nice, I could give my cpu to my uncle save he trouble of getting 6700k and buy my self this, well this all providing price isnt stupid

    i dont see 1151 "v2" mentioned anywhere there

    Seeing under package is say "1151"

    So it has same performance as a cheaper? Ryzen 5? I don't understand what we miss here?

    IF is I rather get Intel then AMD special if similarly priced

    Without the gaming bottleneck.

    It's possible those aren't the final clocks (hopefully)...
