Right now Intel is surrounded by a maze of rumours, be them about 10nm, Coffee Lake, Cannon Lake and even their second generation 10nm Ice Lake CPUs.  
 
Rumour has it that Intel will be releasing new CPU products in August, codename Coffee Lake, which will release on a new Z370 socket. If these rumours are true they will be replacing Kaby Lake a mere 8 months after launch, which is sure to leave a sour taste in the mouths of Intel fans. 
 
Coffee Lake is expected to be based on their existing Kaby Lake designs with several core improvements, though the key changes with Coffee Lake will be with the inclusion of 6-core products on a desktop platform. This will be the first time that a 6-core product will not be released on Intel’s HEDT platform sockets like X79, X99 and X299.  
 
The CPU shown below comes with a base clock speed of 3.1GHz and a boost clock speed of 4.2GHz, with a total of 12MB of L3 Cache (2MB per core, same as Kaby-Lake). At this time it is unknown if Coffee Lake will function on LGA 1151 motherboards or require a new socket design.

If recent reports are to be believed, Coffee Lake will be based on 14nm and come with 6-core variants on a 149mm^2 die and 4-core parts on a 126mm^2 die, which means that quad-core parts will not be 6-cores with disabled hardware. 

At this time, Coffee Lake is expected to be Intel’s last architecture that will be based on Intel’s 14nm process node.
