4-core i3 CPUs seem increasingly likely

Intel's Coffee Lake i3 lineup leaks

 
Leaks for Intel's upcoming Coffee Lake series of CPUs are becoming more frequent and detailed, with many expecting Intel to announce this new lineup of desktop CPU at their 8th Generation Core CPU announcement event on August 21st.  

  
While we are unlikely to see Coffee Lake on desktop platforms until late Q3 or Q4, it is becoming increasingly likely that Intel will be increasing the core counts of their upcoming i3, i5 and i7 series CPUs, making Coffee Lake one of Intel's most competitive desktop offerings to date. 

Now detailed specifications for Intel's upcoming Coffee Lake i3 lineup has been revealed, offering 4 cores and 4 threads and clock speeds of up to 4GHz. These CPUs will lack boost clocks speeds and come with TDPs of between 65W and 91W.  

All of these CPUs will support Dual-channel 2400MHz DDR4 memory out of the box, with the   i3 8100 sporting 6MB of shared L3 cache while the higher end i3 8300 and 8350K offer a total of 8MB of L3 cache. With this generation, Intel's i3 CPUs will not be hyperthreaded, which means that i3's thread count will still be four, though the core count boost will certainly deliver huge performance gains in multi-threaded applications. 

The i3 8350K will be the only overclockable CPU in the range, which means that this i3 will likely overclock to around 5GHz like Intel's current-generation Kaby-Lake offerings or perhaps higher. 

Intel's Coffee Lake i3 lineup leaks  

While a lot of this i3 specifications have been leaked previously, additional sources of this information do add greatly to its potential legitimacy, making these leaks seem much more likely to be true.

If CL really is S1151 it's odd that it's not compatible with Z270.Quote

not really odd i think.

intel is tying to maximize the profit.

milking the user for small incremental performance gains is intels thing for a long time.

kaby lake was a sad joke. this is just the next step.

they have to give the user more CPU performance to compete with AMD now.
that is extra effort from intels side... someone has to pay for that.

so why only sell a CPU when you can sell a chipset too?Quote

It depends, they could have rushed and used the same socket to save time, but that doesn't mean that the pins are used in the exact same way. TBH it is hard to know what Intel are doing ATM in this regard.Quote

it´s funny that it is basically the same socket and same amount of pins.

just what some pins "do" (or better say what they are used for) is a little different.

and from the rumors the Z370 is basically a Z270 chipset too.
the bios for Z370 boards will basically be ported from Z270 with minor changes.

intel can sprinkel as much PR dust on this as they want.... it´s obvious why they did it.Quote
