The Kabylake Z370 chip wasn't planned. It was likely a rushed launch.300 series is Cannon Lake PCH, except Kaby Lake-R Z370, correct? Then why is Z390 coming that much later?
That's been the rumor for awhile. Considering that Intel is going to be cutting into their margins quite a bit with this release I think they wanted to make sure the pent up demand went to higher ASP products first. Kind of like AMD releasing the 7 series Ryzen's first instead of releasing the R5 at the same time.Looking at the above roadmap, im quessing only the K models of Coffeelake will relese in Q4 2017 ??
Well if you want a CoffeeLake in Q4 2017 you will only be able to buy a more expensive Z370 motherboard . I dont believe a lot of users with a locked Coffeelake would like to spend more for the Z370 bords. So i believe only two models will release in Q4, 8600K and 8700K. Rest of the SKUs in Q1 2018 along with the rest of the smaller chipsets.That would be a poor marketing choice on Intel's behalf. AMD would eat Intel's lunch - so I think not.
Thanks, finally something on 7940x too. Not that its needed that much, as its performance can be easily inferred from the leaked results of the 20x, 60x and 80xe, but still....Nice find @nvgpu. LGA 1151 v2's Z390 in H2-2018 and Ice Lake rumored to arrive next year, maybe Q4 is in the cards depending on 10nm+ progress. Some updates on leaked CFL-S & SKL-X scores...
- Core i9-7940X @ Geekbench 4
- Core i5-8400 @ SiSoftware (Processor Multi-Media)
- Core i7-7700K @ SiSoftware (Processor Multi-Media, Stock)
Well forgot the 8350K, but even if they will release the other locked CPUs i dont believe they will sell alot of them with just the Z370 available in Q4 2017.There aren't just 2 products to launch; there are 6 that have prices: Core i3-8100, 8350K, i5-8400, 8600K, i7-8700, 8700K.
What you are saying is likely correct. But the impression that they have a new product will still be a positive thing for them.Well forgot the 8350K, but even if they will release the other locked CPUs i dont believe they will sell alot of them with just the Z370 available in Q4 2017.
I don't think anyone knows. I've seen different answers. Some say 16 lanes, others say 24. Some say its 24 including chipset, so really just 16 while others say its a true 24 from the CPU. So, no one knows. If they do know, let them come forth and clear the confusion.How many pci lanes is the 370? Same as 270 i take it?
Their original plan did seem to include non-K CPUs: if you remember a while ago we got hold of a slide from an Intel partner presentation showing their intent to launch CFL in Aug-Sep. That slide included "6 and 4-core / 95W K, 65W" SKUs in the first batch, with the second batch scheduled for Q1 2018 consisting of "6, 4 and 2-core / 95W K, 65W, 35W" SKUs.Well forgot the 8350K, but even if they will release the other locked CPUs i dont believe they will sell alot of them with just the Z370 available in Q4 2017.
