    More of the same, they probably will throw more cores to compete against Ryzen and fail miserably. Wait until 2021 where they promised a new microarch.

    don't expect much, it's all the same thing...
    go for amd please..
    intel is forcing you to buy a new mobo for every new cpu with very minimal differences...

    The usual modern Intel processor requiring closed-source firmware (Management Engine) that can do arbitrary remote code execution, not differently than anything from the 2 major brands from this decade

    Coffee Lake is gen 8, 9th is Cannon lake. It might be the first chip with a 10nm process.

    Coffee lake is just Intel doing what they should have and could have done years ago on the mainstream platform.

    6 core i7, 6 core i5, i3s dropping hyperthreading and going quadcore. More than likely still using toothpaste between the ihs and die.

    6 core processors with kaby ipc will be nice, but just shows how much Intel have been sandbagging and milking people for all they are worth. Restricting the hexcores to expensive hedt platform because AMD was doing nothing. Ryzen comes out, sells well, suddenly intel can put 6 cores on mainstream and gets rid of the dual cores for proper quads.
