Intel to release next-gen CPUs early
« on: April 20, 2017, 04:27:30 PM »
Looks like the increased competition from AMD has caused Intel to speed things up a little and release their next generation CPUs 3 months early. The CPUs will be part of the Basin Falls platform and will feature 6, 8, and 10 core CPUs. Intel will also be releasing their Coffee Lake CPUs this August instead of the original January 2018 release date that they've announced. DigiTimes has the story.

   Intel will unveil its Basin Falls platform, i.e. Skylake-X, Kaby Lake-X processors and X299 chipset, at Computex 2017 in Taipei during May 30-June 3 two months earlier than originally scheduled, and will bring forward the launch of Coffee Lake microarchitecture based on a 14nm process node from January 2018 originally to August 2017, to cope with increasing competition from AMD's Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 5 processors, according to Taiwan-based PC vendors.
