In the midst of many people still focused on the existence of Coffee Lake architecture, there is a surprising news that blows from Intel HQ related to the plan presence of one of the new flagship fleet of the latest chip is much stronger than hecsa core Coffee Lake.
According to confirmation from one representative of Eurocom has been revealed that Intel Z390 chipset will be launched in the second half (H2) in 2018. It is known thanks to leaked roadmap (roadmap) circulating in cyberspace. Not only that, interesting information is also disclosed, is there will be enthusiasm CPU that uses this chipset which will feature 8 cores and 16 threads.
These chips are predicted to compete directly with the AMD Ryzen 7 processor family, which is also available with 8 cores capable of executing 16 threads. AMD has got its mojit back with Zen architecture, so it makes sense that Intel seems to be still not willingly displaced by AMD’s position.
Since Coffee Lake itself has not been launched yet, it can be assumed that the upcoming Intel processor may be supported by Z390 when launched. The 8 core / 16-thread processor that will be based on Intel’s new 10nm + Ice Lake architecture may be the ninth-generation Core processor, while Kaby Lake-R, Coffee Lake and Cannon Lake are eighth-generation Core processors.
While for those who can not wait to wait until next year to upgrade their dream rig, Intel Coffee Lake which will be launched early next month may be a reference. The initial benchmark shows a promising performance for Intel Core i7-8700K, which reportedly will carry the base clock 3.7GHz and TDP of 95 watts.
