    8-core Intel Coffee Lake refresh to arrive this autumn

    The same Japanese report says that there is a 22-core Basin Falls HEDT chip on the way.

    Intel will create its first mainstream 8-core processor(s)...
    This must be untrue as it says its going to be pin compatible with an existing socket. That doesn't sound right for Intel

    Where did it say that?

    Anyway, Intel usually has two gens per chipset, so this could be right.

    The article said that they should support 300 series boards with the same socket as 8th gen.

    "The new octa-core Intel processors will be use the LGA1151 socket and 300-series chipset say the sources"

    Can't get more "pin compatible" than that.

    As for full support/compatibility, it's hard to say Intel can go either way, they could use the same excuse as with 7th gen in saying with two extra cores you need better power delivery so in that regard probably not.

    I can't believe they would pull that trick again to be fair. It would hand a huge amount of business straight to AMD

    I thought the ongoing rumour was that the 8-core processors would be on the Z390 chipset only.

    Re: 8-core Intel Coffee Lake refresh to arrive this autumn

    My system currently has an i7 4770 on the LGA1151 socket, I would've gladly upgraded to a better processor if Intel didn't keep changing the socket with releases of new processors. This locking of people to a specific socket is why on my next build I'm going AMD, they're finally competitive and they offer proper backwards compatibility plus all the cores! F*ck Intel for giving us 4C8T for all these years!

    Ah. I didn't see that in the Japanese article, but I guess 'sources' did say that.

    7th gen was down to the normal two gen compatibility. 6th was compatible with 5th, and even though the didn't change the pin count like before, breaking at 7 was normal. Breaking again at 8 would be a change. Not that it's out of the question, but it feels less likely due to this.

    If Intel release that under £350 then I might get one, although it'll need soldering if it's to actually work.
