A 6c/6T Coffee Lake CPU has been spotted

A 6-core, 6-thread Coffee Lake CPU has been spotted in the SiSoftware database. Is this the first i5 with more than four cores?



Read more on Intel's upcoming 6c/6t CPU.

Hmm. Well that's a bit weird. Seems like a lot of jiggery pokery to me. I mean yeah it will be quicker than a 4c 8t but how much quicker? (and don't quote numbers at me I am just sayin...)

Just seems like a very selfish way to compete with AMD on price/spec really. "Oh I know, our worthy customers don't deserve a 6c 12t CPU for a cheap price so let's disable HT !".

Mind you what am I even saying.

1. This will be hideously expensive.
2. So will the platform.
3. Another new socket perhaps? oh go on, just one waffer thin mint? (bonus points for telling me where that is from)

It still won't likely beat a 1600 in multi-threaded tasks, but at least the i7 6c/12t should. The i5 would likely return to being the sweet spot for gaming. It's so annoying that the only reason why is because AMD questioned Intel. Out of principle I should support AMD for that.

No new socket, if you can believe that; it should be 1151 the little birds whisper. Good for me (if they allow it to run on Z170 that is). Anyway, I'll buy this in i7 flavour and be set until that new build from the ground up CPU (ice lake?). So that's coffee lake > cannonlake > tiger lake > ice lake? I've lost track.

That's a pretty safe buy imo; sell it when coffee comes out and you'll still get good money for a (near) 5GHz CPU (thinking coffee lake i7's may top out around 4.7GHz). For reference; I sold my Sandy for very decent money last year.

Yeah, that would be really annoying. That's why I'm so peeved off with Intel right now, and I'd be bitter if I had bought a 7600K or 7700K recently with the intention of it remaining a leading CPU for years to come.
