According to the various sources The Inquirer has, the Coffee Lake refresh will be launched on the first of October, in time to ensure systems builders have models ready for the holidays.  This new processor does not offer a compelling upgrade for those with a modern system, as it is very similar to it's predecessor.  If you have something a little older however, the three new processors offer increased frequencies and core counts, the 9900K sports a default Boost Clock of 5GHz, which is nothing to sneeze at.

"If you were expecting anything bigger then allow us to disappoint you as, really the ninth-gen chips are mild upgrades on their predecessors, unless Intel has been keeping something very well hidden up its corporate sleeves."

"This new processor does not offer a compelling upgrade for those with a modern system, as it is very similar to it's predecessor."
Jeremy, this is a misleading statement. My Haswell system is fairly "modern", and yet doubling the core/trhread count and bumping the clocks 500-800MHz would definitely be a worthy upgrade, if I had a use for the extra horsepower. Even coming from 6/12 Coffee 8700K, the extra cores and higher clocks would be enough for some people. If anything about Ryzen's "more cores" philosophy is valid, why downplay the same core count on Intel? I think the 9900k will be the best CPU of 2018. It will do what Ryzen tried to do (bring higher core counts to the mainstream), but without Ryzen's compromises of low clocks, high latency, and crapshoot IMC. If it is soldered, as rumored,an all-core OC of 5.5 is possible. AMD won't get clocks this high until Ryzen 3, if ever. and by then Intel should be at 6 GHz.

6 Ghz ??? are you Okay intel is stuck on the same 14 nm for now that frequencey cant be reached only for LN2

What's 3 more bugs among many! But Hey, we are Intel and we are the IPC leader and who cares about security when there's draw calls to be done.

This new article states:

"It is the clearest example yet that, over time, Chipzilla's management traded security for speed: their processors execute software at a screaming rate, with memory protection mechanisms a mere afterthought. In the the pursuit of ever increasing performance, defenses to protect people's data became optional." (1)


"Three more data-leaking security holes found in Intel chips as designers swap security for speed

Apps, kernels, virtual machines, SGX, SMM at risk from attack"
