Currently, Intel is busy with the release of the seventh generation of Core processors that are based on Kaby Lake architecture. However, in the bowels of the company is already in full swing is working on their successors: Cannonlake and Coffee Lake. Information on the latest shared our Chinese colleagues from the web edition Becnhlife.info.
It is reported that the 14-nanometer desktop chips family Coffee Lake-S debut in February 2018. These processors will be available in two versions: with four and six cores. And although by the time the processors Kaby Lake-S will be a year, model Coffee Lake-S should not undergo significant changes with respect to its predecessors. The graphics subsystem of new CPU is almost completely identical to that of the Kaby Lake-S chips, and a significant increase in computing power will be obtained solely due to “increasing” the number of cores. Square crystal six-core models will be 149 mm², and quad – 126 mm². For comparison, the quad-core processors Kaby Lake-S will receive a crystal area of 123 mm².
In addition, Chinese informants also confirmed the recent reports about Intel plans to add in the chipsets 300 series support USB 3.1 interface.
