Intel documentation reveals future eight-core Coffee Lake-S CPUs

Posted on Tuesday, April 17 2018 @ 11:16:05 CEST by

Over the past year or so, Intel has made various changes to its CPU roadmap in order to address the renewed competition from AMD. The latter offers more cores than what Intel had in its mainstream portfolio, and that's urging the chip giant to beef up its offerings.

We've heard rumors about eight-core Coffee Lake-S processors and now there's some firmer evidence as three technical documents were discovered that refer to eight-core Coffee Lake chips. The documents itself aren't publicly available, but their titles suggest Intel indeed has eight-core Coffee Lake-S processors with integrated GT2 graphics.
The trio of documents, titled "Coffee Lake S 8+2 DDR4 UDIMM Reference Validation Platform Technical Documentation Kit," "Coffee Lake S6+2 S8+2 Processor Line Ballout, Signal, and Mechanical Package," and "Coffee Lake S 8+2 Processor Power Integrity Model," are not available for us mere mortals to view, but the very titles of the documents suggest future products with eight processor cores and GT2 integrated graphics are in the works. The first document shows a last-updated date all the way back in December of last year, suggesting that Intel's manufacturing partners have been preparing for future eight-core parts for at least a few months.
Earlier rumors indicated these eight-core Coffee Lake-S processors may require a motherboard with the yet-to-be-released Z390 chipset.
