Intel launches 8th Gen Intel Core processor family ‘Coffee Lake – Core i7 8th Gen’

Intel unveils the 8th Gen Intel Core processor family and launches the first of the family on Monday, Aug. 21, 2017. The 8th Gen Intel Core processors are designed for what’s next and deliver up to 40% gen over gen performance boost.

The upcoming products include Core i3, i5, and i7 CPUs in both locked and unlocked versions. The Core i5 and i7 will feature six cores and the Core i3 will have four cores. These CPUs will require a new chipset (Z370) and thus new motherboards. Intel has confirmed that previous generation CPUs will not work with the new chipset. Intel said that there will be more than 50 new Z370 motherboards to support these CPUs.

The 8th-generation part is built on what it calls a 14nm++ process. The company would not comment on the die size or transistor count at this . However, Intel is promising gamers an approximately 25% improvement in performance over Kaby Lake.(direct comparison of the Core i7-8700K vs i7-7700K in Gears of ). Turbo Boost 2.0 is still supported, but you will get per-core overclocking, a maximum memory ratio up to 8,400 MT/s, memory latency control, and PLM Trim controls.

The high-end Core i7 part is $20 higher than initial Kaby Lake pricing(Core i5 costs $15 higher). This will cover the additional costs of the along with avoiding cannibalizing the existing Kaby Lake models. Cache sizes are higher and base clocks are lower, comparatively, but the single-core max frequencies are higher. TDP is also higher, presumably to support the higher core count.
