If CL really is S1151 it's odd that it's not compatible with Z270.

not really odd i think.

intel is tying to maximize the profit.

milking the user for small incremental performance gains is intels thing for a long time.

kaby lake was a sad joke. this is just the next step.

they have to give the user more CPU performance to compete with AMD now.
that is extra effort from intels side... someone has to pay for that.

so why only sell a CPU when you can sell a chipset too?

True that.

It depends, they could have rushed and used the same socket to save time, but that doesn't mean that the pins are used in the exact same way. TBH it is hard to know what Intel are doing ATM in this regard.

it´s funny that it is basically the same socket and same amount of pins.

just what some pins "do" (or better say what they are used for) is a little different.

and from the rumors the Z370 is basically a Z270 chipset too.
the bios for Z370 boards will basically be ported from Z270 with minor changes.

intel can sprinkel as much PR dust on this as they want.... it´s obvious why they did it.

i3-8350k Vs FX8350

We need an i3-8350k Vs FX 8350 comparison

If AMD can make Bristol Ridge work in socket AM4 Intel could make this work in Z270. BR is not even Zen, or Ryzen. So it's a completely different technology working in the same socket.

TBH dude I'm wasting my breath really. We all know that Intel do this for the cash and not for the end user. Was joking around on another forum the other day but pointed out that people who had bought B350/370 boards would basically be dropping in at least two proper, meaningful upgrades with those boards. Like extra cores and threads, or extra cores, or much better clock speeds on a die shrink etc. Not buying a new board just so they can take a "tick" upgrade.

I also find it very rude of Intel to still be selling locked CPUs. Not that it wasn't bad before, but now? seriously? AMD release an entire range without a padlock in sight but Intel still counting grains of sugar

a problem created by the stock market if you ask me.

i am an engineer myself in my day job.
and great/good ideas are not brought forward because it could interfer with quartal results.
pennys count....

i doubt engineers had the last word when it comes to using TIM on the latest intel CPU´s.


imagine intel can not show a raise in profit to it´s shareholders.
year after year their numbers where going up. record quarter after record quarter.

manager "try" everything to make shareholders happy.

if intels can succeed with the current strategy is the question.
but the intel managers sure think it´s the right strategy.
they count on the weight of the brand name and that customers will think: INTEL = superior.

AMD on the other hand has not much too lose.
when they make a profit, it will be a win.

but everything other than a raise in profit will be a debacle for intel.

when AMD can grab a piece of the market from intel, it will pay in the future too.
even when they sell CPU´s with a smaller margin of profit.

i am way more inclined to use AMD for my computers than i was in the last 10 years (*).
all around me people think the same. that is a HUGE success for AMD already.

(*) i already build a ryzen system and i will build a TR system too, later this year.

ps: sorry for my grammar... i am from germany.

I fully expect them to sell that 8350K at the price of 7600K.
