Are Intel's New iGPU-less Coffee Lakes Processors Worth it?

What do you think of Intel's value-oriented processors?



Read more about the pricing of Intel's GPU-less Coffee Lake F-series processors.

£10 cheaper. So at retail same price.

One saving grace they may have, however, is that they may clock higher due to less heat.

We'll see

Since the difference is so small only a sucker would buy these IMO. iGPU is a nice thing to have and certainly worth a tenner.

Why do you think they are called the Coffee Lake F-series.

Yeah I've heard this. Also people who have tested by turning off the iGPU on the K versions have said no extra overclock room is given as a result so doubt we will see it here.

£10 off at MSRP ... Intel you are taking the biscuit with this one!
