Very true.  How about we check back on this thread after z370 and Coffee Lake releases?   :D

It seems like intel is rushing out more CPU's than ever.

 

What gives you the impression of "rushing"?

Well they have released a lot of skylake X CPU's such as the core i9 and core i7, plus a kabylake X core i5. Intel has released several different models of the sylake X family which is why I used the term "rushing".

Thanks for the clarification.

 

No doubt that they "rushed" or brought in the 12 through 18 core Skylake-X parts earlier than anticipated, but the Kaby Lake X and 6 through 10 core Skylake X parts were as planned.  So is Coffee Lake.

I don't know if my word means anything, but let's say I too know of what he speaks of, and I can say this:

The chipset itself, Z270, supports Coffeelake. The current sockets on the other hand, do not. The internal pin configuration on every known board currently in use, is incompatible with Coffeelake due to how the power delivery of those pins were designed to accommodate the new cores, along with some minor tweaks to the memory subsystem to improve official DDR4 compatibility up to 2666mhz.

 

It is far easier to say you need a Z370 board, because it is highly unlikely that we will see current Z270 boards get an updated revision with a proper pin configuration to support CFL. That will only bring more confusion (similar to Z87/Z97 DC support being hit or miss depending on boards). Do I agree with Intel's reasoning behind this? Not at all, and it only further invalidates CFL as a potential platform option for most people. Why would anyone in their right mind, upgrade from Kaby to Coffeelake, requiring an entirely new platform, when they can just spend that money and upgrade to X299 instead, and have a future upgrade path that isn't limited to 6 cores at max? It just makes zero sense to me.

 

Had Coffeelake supported the current boards in circulation (even if it came at a clock speed disadvantage), at the very least, people could get more cores at the cost of clocks, without having to buy an entirely new motherboard. Instead, we now have this odd in-between platform that is essentially exactly the same as Kaby as far as IPC and features goes, but offers 2 more cores, stuffed in between yet another architecture that is similar to Kaby in terms of IPC (minus the cache changes) but offers far more cores. This is the most obfuscated product stack that I have ever personally seen.

Intel hasn't confirmed anything atm , so socket compatibility isn't known .

 

However , given the power requirements of a 6 core chip on the same node , it'll probably exceed the power limitations of the socket.

So if Coffee Lake release date is august-september and Z370 chipset launches in Q1 2018, the processors will be in stores with no compatibility whatsoever? That doesn't seem right to me.

Huh? Where is the Aug/September date coming from? That's for the bigger Skylake-X chips. As far as I am aware, CFL was slated for Q4 2017/Q1 of 2018. Meaning, Oct at earliest, March 2018 at latest. 

 

The hardest part about conveying information I am not supposed to know, is doing it in a way that won't get somebody in trouble. All I can say is, it won't work, and that the only way for it to be proven, is to wait until it launches so that you can see that it doesn't. As for release dates, that has pretty much always been on the roadmaps (aside from delays) and all other recent leaks also show a similar Q4 2017/ Q1 2018 date.
