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. 

 

You can join the discussion on Intel’s rumoured Coffee Lake and Gemini Lake CPUs on the OC3D Forums.
