Intel's 6-core Kaby Lake R-series CPUs are rumoured to arrive in 2018

 
In reaction to AMD's new Ryzen and Threadripper CPUs, Intel reportedly planning to increase the core count available on their next-generation desktop platform, allowing their 8th generation of desktop CPUs to support up to six total CPU cores rather than four. 
 
This is intended to make their next generation of core CPUs to compete with AM4 in terms of raw CPU performance/core count, in a similar way to how X299 will include 12+ core CPU models to compete with AMD Threadripper. 
 
Reports from Winfuture are claiming that Intel's upcoming Skylake-R series of CPUs will release in February 2018, around a year after Kaby Lake-S came to market, arriving with a total of six CPU cores and twelve total threads. These new CPUs are reportedly using Intel's latest 14nm++ process node and potentially offer increased efficiency over Kaby Lake-S.
 
Intel is also expected to release new 15W U-series CPUs which should power future low-power ultrabooks, which will also include Intel's latest GT2 graphics processor. The company is also expected to release Gemini Lake in December 2017, which will be Intel's next generation Atom processor which will replace Appollo Lake with TDPs of under 10 watts. 

  

Intel's 6-core Kaby Lake R-series CPUs are rumoured to arrive in 2018


Right now these new 6-core Kaby Lake CPUs are rumoured to be called "Coffee Lake" and come on a version of Intel's LGA 1151 socket, though it is unknown whether or not existing Z170 or Z270 motherboards will support these new processors.

Better late than never. Mind you, new socket new board. Ugh.

What would have been the best thing to do would be to release a six core CPU that works in 270 and 170 boards. But then *sigh* this is Intel and not AMD.

That's what makes me laugh the most though. Obviously Intel can't just shove a 6 core in there* which means that they really did expect Zen to be crap and really did, totally, 100% get caught with their pants down.

Dear god, Threadripper is going to spoil their Xeon party.....Quote

That's one of the main reasons I went with Zen, So I can just drop in the next big AM4 CPU instead of buying a completely new board Quote

The article is wrong, or rather it's a misunderstanding that's been taken for a spin; nothing changed and we'll still have CFL-S K-Series come August. From the guy who leaked the original Core X series:

Sweepr: "I see there's 'rumors' about Coffee Lake being delayed to 2018 circulating in clickbait websites. The original article from WinFuture.de only provides info about mobile products and a 65W 'S' part (and speculates about the rest), saying Kaby Lake Refresh comes in September, Gemini Lake in late 2017 and Coffee Lake in February. Basically nothing new because it was already known that mobile Coffee Lake was a Q1-2018 product. To clear up any confusion, the only parts launching in August are unlocked 65W/95W 4C/6C desktop models + Z370 chipset, everything else including traditional locked 65W desktop models, mobile variants (U, H), Xeon E3 and new chipsets will only be available next year. This is the latest roadmap from Intel itself pre-Computex:

And here's an article from DigiTimes published today:"

DigiTimes said:
ASMedia's revenues will move upward along with the release of Intel X299 series chips in June, AMD X399 series chips is July as well as Intel Coffee Lake CPUs, and Z370 chips in August, Lin noted."

ASMedia has begun developing USB 3.2 controller chips in order to cope with Intel's planned release of 300 series chipsets and expects to roll out USB 3.2 host controller and device controller chips in 2018, Lin revealed.
