Intel’s Coffee Lake-S Desktop Processors to launch in February 2018?
It seems like with Coffee Lake mainstream users now are too going to get more cores and will also benefit from an improved process technology and a brand new platform.
The new variants are expected to launch in February 2018 and unlike a previous reeport, Coffee Lake will have a similar graphics architechture to Kaby Lake so don’t expect a huge difference. We can however expect the usual clock speed bump and an increase in core cont as well.
