    I'm hoping for performance that's a latte higher than previous generation changes, recently the jump between generations has been all but flat white. I wonder if upcoming AMD competition is encouraging them to be more espresso with their launches?

    You've really ground out those puns there. You should be shot for those (after you've been tried for crimes against puns, so you'd better hope you have a good barista).

    Look at the picture on the intel tweet linked in the article, they claim 7th gen (Kabylake) is 15% faster than 6th Gen and 8th Gen will be 15% faster than 7th Gen.
    But we all know the claim in regards to Kabylake vs Skylake does not apply to desktop cpus...

    More importantly Coffee Lake is meant to bring 6 core mainstream processors. Combine that with a decent performance boost and they will sell bucket loads of them.

    I definitely believe Intel's 15% performance boost claim.

    But their IPC sucked compared to Intel so outside of specialisted work sets they were a bad choice for most people.

    Now AMD and Intel are rumoured to be in parity things will finally get interesting again. I am considering 6 core this time, so long as it makes sense

    I thought Cannonlake was the Kabylake successor? Where did Coffeelake suddenly appear from? It never came up in my Google Kabylake successor searches.

    Cannon Lake (or Cannonlake, depending on your preferred spelling) is Intel's upcoming 10nm part; this announcement is about Coffee Lake, which is 14nm - hence the slide being titled "advancing Moore's Law on 14nm," rather than "look what happens when our 10nm node finally launches!"

    There's marginally more on Wikipedia, if you're curious.

    Currently for sale:
    Ivy Bridge (a couple of the low TDP T editions are still not end of life)
    Haswell
    Devil's Canyon
    Haswell-E
    Broadwell-E
    Skylake
    Kabylake

    Coming this year:
    Skylake-X
    Kabylake-X
    Cannon Lake
    Coffee Lake

    And thats without even counting the 5 billion mobile and Xeon variants...

    Maybe they'll start bundling their cpus with a guide to understanding their product lineup in the near future:D

    Will the non-overclockable chips be known as the decaff version?

    I know that I read it.

    My point was - everytime I googled "Kabylake successor" it only ever mentioned Cannonlake, so was Coffeelake always scheduled or is Google (or my use of it) just crap?

    PS what slide? the article is called "Intel pledges 8th Gen Coffee Lake launch by year's end"

    I believe there will be three variants of the "performance locked" chips: Tassimo, Nespresso and Dolce Gusto.
