Intel has leaked information about the potential gains of 8th generation processors. Namely Coffee Lake, in comparison with Kaby Lake.
|7th generation||Details||First Price||8th generation||Details||Performance|
|Intel Core i7-7700K||4C/8T 91W |
|$380||Intel Core i7-8700K||6C/12T 95W |
|Intel Core i7-7700||4C/8T 65W |
|$330||Intel Core i7-8700||6C/12T 65W |
|Intel Core i5-7600K||4C/4T 91W |
|$244||Intel Core i5-8600K||6C/6T 95W |
|Intel Core i5-7400||4C/4T 65W |
|$189||Intel Core i5-8400||6C/6T 65W |
|Intel Core i3-7350K||2C/4T 60W |
|$215||Intel Core i3-8350K||4C/4T 91W |
|Intel Core i3-7100||2C/4T 51W |
|$131||Intel Core i3-8100||4C/4T 65W |
There are no big differences on the processor constructions, it is always built in 14 nm. The melting of the chips was slightly improved. On the other hand, two physical cores are added to each processor. The gain at full power is still about 50% higher than the previous generation. For an insertion price that will probably be similar; Which is huge for the consumer.
This 8th generation will be launched on August 21, 2017.
Then will certainly follow the Coffee Lake-X.
