    Looks interesting, I Curious on how it perform, let alone how well it will overclock and the amount of heat it would put out while clocked high. If this do an good job then I may eye this for an upgrade path way, instead of the X299 mobo and cpu that I been eyeing.

    I Just hope that it doesn't need an outrageous amount of voltage to overclock.

    do we have any news about backward compatibilty of these cpu with z170 and z270 yet?

    actually asked the questions before the article im not quite sure how come it ended up here, but that sucks then no 8700k for me to much cost to upgrade from a 7700k

    Another Ryzen to get an R5 1600/X.

    Not that I'd need Intel to confirm that: I assume that for every "new" CPU they release.
    I'm not sure I understand your question, the tittle says: "Coffee Lake will not work on current motherboards"
    Lmao
    Intel is disappointing me since 2012 and after 2017, it will be hard for me to ever go Intel again soon.

    Wake me up when they start making them 8 core. At this rate the competition will hit 16 core mainstream before they do 8

    Not yet.

    My magic ball says Intel will release some info about it at it's online press room, soon.

    Yup, same. From what I recall you had Ryzen 1700? Planning to get same one for home rig, with x370 Taichi and 16gb 3200ram.

    Recently made a Ryzen system at my work with 1800x, it is fantastic bang for the buck.

    And intel did it again, another whole system change lol, and now they says "40% higher performance" @50% more cores? that´s less IPC or less Base clocks? lol

    R5-1600 is the way, RYZEN is the choice ;)

    Well since socket 1366/2011 intel fucked up completely with 1155,1156,1150,1151 etc etc they could made one fucking future proof socket but no they have to milk every fucking segment of customers well intel FU..

    This will require a new motherboard as well. And judging by AMD past it is highly unlikely that Zen+ CPUs will be compatible with AM4/TR4 motherboards.

    Still, unless there is pinout difference, it is highly likely to work on selected motherboards if BIOS is upgraded by manufacturers.

    Nice to see that many of you are putting into the dark the intel cpu's and at the same time manifesting the indifference for the Ryzen bug which does affect the gcc compilator and as it seems few others compilators as well.
    Probably many of you do spend their time on a Windows machine by playing games, surfing and launching synthetic benchmarks but the reality is that no company within the big two is the best choice right now.
    Intel made itself an auto goal with the last coffe lake decision to do not support x270 series motherboards and AMD repeated itself once again by the history - during all the time prior to the Ryzen release no one has it tested on a Linux machine as it had to be done!
    Once again AMD is completely snobbing the Linux system and is doing it the best way it can, this should be enough to leave the Ryzen processors and the Vega gpus where they should be, on the shelve.
    Many of you are running to buy AMD products by paying probably no much attention on the fact that the AMD company is not an angelic one and that it it is not better then Intel.
    Intel on its counterpart does test their cpu's on the Linux and Unix like systems...want to see how many Apple pc's and notebook's will be released in the next future based on the Ryzen arch? Want to see how many Linux servers will be equipped with the Ryzens? Probably zero.
    AMD was smart enought for having addressed the Ryzen bug by the arrival of the Threadripper's.
    So from the AMD point of view it seems that Ryzens are made for playing and toying while the Threadrippers are for scholars and engineers.
    And to say the last, Intel did always retired their faulty cpu's at their own cost...AMD is not doing the same with their awesome Ryzen's.

    Well this looks like another stupid decision by Intel in a long line of stupid decisions. They seem to think they're still operating as a monopoly and are refusing to see the elephant in the room called Ryzen. Coffee Lake is potentially going to be a flop for Intel because they're effectively locking out all owners of Z100/200 from upgrading without buying yet another mobo with virtually the same specification. It's crazy. I only bought my 7700K and Z270 mobo in January when KL launched and now they've ended my upgrade path. Gee thanks Intel. As and when I'm ready to move to 6/8 core Intel will not even be a consideration. I'm not giving any money to a company that is so blatantly trying to shaft me LMAO. I only went Intel this time because I was concerned with the rumours regarding Ryzen CPU's which turned out to be well founded. As AMD are supporting AM4 for at least the next 3 to 4 years that won't be a problem when I next decide to upgrade. If CL does begin to flop it wouldn't surprise me if CL suddenly became backwards compatible to keep people like me on board and stop us from buying Ryzen chips with more cores and for less money. Time will tell I guess.

    What makes you think AMD require a new socket every time? Zen+ will likely be compatible, Zen 2 will be on AM4+ socket. That's their 7 nm processor in the works, it makes sense that a new socket would be required or for maximum benefit.
