Intel is known for its cutting-edge CPU and GPU technology. The company has revealed a number of processors in recent years. It has been less than a year since Intel revealed its Kaby Lake line of processors. According to leaks, Intel’s Coffee Lake CPU may be on the way. Rumors suggest that 6-core i7 CPU functioning on the 1151 socket.

PC Games reports Intel has numerous hexacore chips coming up. Up to four desktop CPUs might be getting the 6-core handling, counting a pair that would drop in the Core i5 banner.


There are also rumors that Hexacore CPUs have been formerly unapproachable for Intel’s conventional platforms in the past and customers requiring those cores were enforced to spend a massive amount of money for its HEDT platforms.

Performance, specs, and features

Most PC gamers complain about the slow processor and poor performance. The said device is said to be best in its segment. But this time, Coffee Lake is carrying something out of the box for game lovers. A 6-core CPU with hyperthreading will allow up to 12 threads.

Coffee Lake is made as an inheritor for the Skylake and Kaby Lake peers of Intel’s CPU lineup and is assembled upon a 14nm process, estimated to offer up to 30 percent upgraded performance when compared to mobile chips from the Skylake collection.

The greatest standout feature of the device is still is a move toward additional cores. Core i3 CPUs will originate with four cores for the first time, though i7 and perhaps i5 chips will sport six cores individually. The Core i7 chips of new Coffee Lake are the 8700K and 8700. The former is anticipated to carry a base clock of 3.7 GHz in addition to the non-K chip with a base clock of 3.2 GHz.


Device may face compatibility issues

The shocking update of Core i5 parts clues at a parallel pair of chips to be baptized as the Core i5-8400 and the Core i5-8600K. The base clocks of those fragments are said to be 3.6 GHz and 2.8 GHz, correspondingly. According to experts, 6-core CPUs in Intel’s standard Core i5 lineup is anticipated to complete suitably with AMD’s Ryzen 5 series of products. According to trusted sources, the new Coffee Lake CPU may face compatibility issues with Z270 boards even if the chipsets with the forthcoming Z370 seem to be identical.

The update further added that there are anticipations in the market that Intel will change its mind on compatibility.
