AMD is stomping all over Intel right now with Ryzen and their new HEDT platform with Ryzen ThreadRipper, and now the pain continues with Intel reportedly delaying the release of their upcoming Coffee Lake CPUs until February 2018.




The company reportedly presented its partners with a new deck at Computex detailing that their new 14/16/18-core CPUs won't be released until February 2018. These parts will arrive with a new LGA 1151 V2 socket making the new Coffee Lake CPUs not compatible with current LGA 1151 motherboards, which will not have current LGA 1151 owners happy at all. We should expect a Kaby Lake refresh in the coming months, with Coffee Lake pushed into 2018.
