Intel just launched its new Core i9 range of processors, but Coffee Lake news continues to roll out, as Coffee Lake is a refresh/optimized slice of Kaby Lake that supports more than 4 CPU cores.
A new engineering sample has turned up on the SiSoft Sandra benchmark database, showing that Intel will have 6C/12T CPUs at 3.5GHz, and over 4.2GHz with Turbo enabled. We should expect 256KB of L2 cache per core, and 9MB of shared L3 cache. There's also a variant of Coffee Lake that will include a larger 12MB of L3 cache, too.
We should expect the Coffee Lake-S series to come in 4C/8T with GT2 graphics, as well as 6C/12T with GT2 graphics. There will be Coffee Lake-S and Coffee Lake-H series processors, but we might see Intel change the socket from LGA 1151 to something else with Coffee Lake, but let's hope they don't - alright?
