Rumor: Intel i7-8700K to launch on 5th October

Please note that this post is tagged as a rumor.

It is believed that on October 5th the distribution of Intel’s 8th Gen series will begin. We actually heard about the same date but as a retail launch. Regardless if this means retail availability or not, it appears that Intel’s new desktop series will launch early October.

The Coffee Lake-S series are Intel’s direct response to Ryzen. For the first time, Intel will introduce mainstream 6-core processors and budget quad-core CPUs. The i7-8700K is a flagship model of Coffee Lake-S series with 6 cores and 12 threads.

To give you something to talk about I’m sharing the first (ever) full picture of the Z370 motherboard and ‘new’ the 1151 socket. The logos were ‘replaced’ for a reason.
