A recent leak at PCEva tells that the 8th generation Intel Coffee Lake-S processors will feature 6-cores with LGA 1151 Socket compatibility. The 8th generation Intel processors are also said to sport in six, four and two cores CPU configurations.
The leaked image details more information on Intel Coffee Lake-S that it will have three different variants in power. The enthusiast version will have 95W TDP, the corporate / mainstream will have 65W TDP while the last low power will have 35W TDP.
Furthermore, Coffee Lake-S will support 24 PCI lanes, which is exactly same as in Kaby Lake-S. Additionally, it will also support CPU-attached PCIe storage.
Interestingly, the leaked slide also tells that Coffee Lake-S will come out sometime around August 21, 2017 to October 9, 2017.
While Intel has plans in pipeline, AMD Ryzen is already launching its Ryzen 3 and Ryzen 5 processor lineups to compete its counterpart Intel processors.
The Ryzen 3 1300X has base clock of 3.5GHz and boost clock of 3.7GHz with 65 watts TDP rating. The processor has 4C/4T (4cores/4threads) and costs only $129. These sort of low-budget SKUs are only targeted to grasp the attention of average gamers or new comers to PC builds.
Nothing is known for sure at this point; take all the information as a grain of salt. The specifications and release date will be confirmed once Intel steps up and announces the news officially.
