So we are a little bit late to the party, but Intel has announced their coffee lake refresh and its looking about what you would expect.

 

Core I9

$488

The first thing to talk about is the core “I9” processor. As you can see it has 8 processor cores and 16 threads. Along with a base speed of 3.6 Ghz it has a max turbo clock of 5 Ghz (single core). If that is the case this Will be an excellent overclocker. You can practically already see the overclocking wars happening now.

Core I7

$374

With this refresh it seems as though they are nerfing the I7. With only 8 cores and 8 threads it looks like it will perform a bit worse if not similar to the I9. We will see if the price to performance is worth the upcharge.

Core I5

$262

It looks like they are going to keep the same core and thread count on the I5 as last year, So no real telling how much of a performance difference there is this time.

 

For now that is it. I will come back with more news and benchmarks when they are out!
