The Intel Core i7 and Core i5-generation Coffee Lake get six cores
As you know, despite the recent release of Kaby Lake processors, Intel will soon again renew the line, presenting CPU Coffee Lake. They will use the same CPU socket LGA 1151 and will not bring a new architecture.
Instead, the generation of Coffee Lake will be the first that will bring the normal family Core i7 (not HEDT) six-core model. At least, so claimed the early rumors at this point, the new data.
The source said about the four models, the parameters of which we brought to the table.
Number of cores/threads
The amount of cache L3, MB
As you can see, even the Core i5 processors will have six cores. While younger models TDP limited to 65W. Given this significant difference, we can assume that the Coffee Lake will be sold in parallel with the Kaby Lake. It is also unclear what differences from existing CPU will get younger representatives of the new generation and whether they will be released at all.
