    Coffee Lake Builders Thread - Embracing 8th Gen Core

    So now that the cat is out of the bag, how are your build plans going? For those that already ordered, which motherboard and CPU did you choose? :cool:

    PCLab got their 8600K to 4.9-5.3 GHz, 13.6% faster than a 7700K @ 5 GHz in their chart. But of course if you're mainly gaming you will be fine with KBL. All the websites that tested CPU limited gaming (Hadware.fr, TPU, PCLab, PurePC, etc) are showing significant performance gains over Ryzen...

    The new mainstream gaming king is here. i5-8400 is looking like a small gem.

    As expected, stock 8700K leading @ the majority of actual MT apps tested, at stock (vs more expensive 1800X). Both 8600K/8700K were OCed to 5.1 GHz with relative ease. We got a winner product here. I might go for 8700K, but let's not overlook the fact that 8600K is looking like sweet gaming...

    While some fanboys try to make a case for a single-digit CB R15 advantage, I'd rather have >30% better performance per core, thank you. :D

    Intel's 8th Generation Core Family - Coffee Lake (LGA 1151, 6C/12T)

    The fact that its within a few % of an 1800X in the most pro-Zen benchmarks ever (CB R15 and 3DMark Physics) with only 6C hints that it might actually lead MT application performance with varied software @ stock (probably a given after OC). And that's only part of the story, because we all know...

    Intel's 8th Generation Core Family - Coffee Lake (LGA 1151, 6C/12T)

    Some very impressive productivity/synthetics results from i7-8700K. Looks like matching/beating R7 1800X in many apps at stock will be no issue. Tomb Raider seems to like more cores...

    Intel's 8th Generation Core Family - Coffee Lake (LGA 1151, 6C/12T)

    I wonder where are the usual suspects that quoted pre-order prices from the UK and converted to USD now. Jokes aside, those are extremely competitive prices. Not only K models will fly off the shelves now, but i3-8100 / i5-8400 should also become popular. AMD willl still win on their beloved...

    Up to 25% faster than Core i7-7700K @ Gears of War 4.

    Intel's 8th Generation Core Family - Coffee Lake (LGA 1151, 6C/12T)

    Right, you'd rather believe the single website that managed to put up fairy tale results where a 4.9 GHz 7700K is only on par with Ryzen 5. Cherry picked GPU-bound results are a no-no to people who read multiple reviews and follow GameGPU's testing. There's plenty of numbers above showing a...

    Intel's 8th Generation Core Family - Coffee Lake (LGA 1151, 6C/12T)

    They found it because Intel already released the specs and platform info about ICL-S to motherboard manufacturers. 2018 launch is looking like a real possibility now. Desktop first, just like Skylake.

    Intel's 8th Generation Core Family - Coffee Lake (LGA 1151, 6C/12T)

    Huge news from Eurocom. They basically confirmed our suspicions. Ice Lake-S is 8C/16T and Z390 supports it. Launch next year?
