    ASRock confirms Coffee Lake CPUs need new motherboards

    At least the third revision of Intel's 14nm process technology will deliver 6C mainstream CPUs.

    Re: ASRock confirms Coffee Lake CPUs need new motherboards

    Not surprised, but would like to see the actual reasoning and the pin array specifications conpared between the z270 and new socket.

    If they're pretty much the same or only had a little shuffle then it's another intel cash venture for their mobo manufacturers

    What a surprise this is, said noone.

    Is there something special about the Core series which causes the necessary socket changes, or is it just forced obsolescence?

    I guess this is potentially another plus point for AM4.

    Re: ASRock confirms Coffee Lake CPUs need new motherboards

    I've got an i7-6700 and have no real need to upgrade currently, but if there was a drop in replacement 6c/12t I may well have gone for it. If this rumour proves correct then I'll just tick along with my current CPU and see what Zen+ brings.

    I cant wait, and I don't care if coffee lake needs a new socket, because I want and need a new chipset anyway. I'm looking forward to what Z390 brings.

    Well there will be 2 more cores in the flagship i5 and i7 and their locked counterparts in coffee lake, now if that warrants it not being compatible with current 1151 sockets, that's for consumers to decide.

    Re: ASRock confirms Coffee Lake CPUs need new motherboards

    WHAT does intel mean with '30% increase' ?? they have been saying that for every generation to the next since the ivy bridge days, but offcoz an ivy bridge i5 is no way 200% slower than a KabyLake.

    Re: ASRock confirms Coffee Lake CPUs need new motherboards

    I thought part of the point behind 'process -> architecture -> optimization' would be that all 3 tranches would only need the same chipset?

    Nah, each one has an asterisk (needs new Motherboard uArch).

    I have a Xeon x5650 and have no real need to upgrade currently!
