It is so good to finally see a dent appearing more and more in Intels dominance. They may not be dropping their prices, but that are at least throwing in more for the price v performance battle.

Had AMD not stepped up and pushed back, I wonder if we would ever have seen 6core mainstream.

I wonder about this as well. I think personally that Coffee Lake with a 6c would still have come, but in Q1 2018, not Q4 2017 as it did, and with a slightly higher price. As for the 8c refresh they would have kept that for a much later date. Skylake for the enthusiast market would be a max of 12c at around $1600, not 18c. And this new rumoured 28c would still just be a $5k Xeon processor.

Hard to know what Intel would have done. With 10nm being delayed the company needed to create something new after Kaby Lake anyway.

I think six cores was inevitable, but Zen pushed the release of the Coffee Lake forward and created Z370, a refreshed Z270 chipset. There is a reason why we are only getting Z390 now, rather than alongside Intel's other 14nm chipsets like H370 B360 etc.

Intel are pushing the h310 chipset back to 22nm due to a shortage on 14nm
