Intel's 8th generation core processors have been unveiled – but the early releases will essentially be a Kaby Lake refresh on a 14nm+ node, but with an increased core count and threads for mobile based devices.
Later on in the year, we'll see the release of Coffee Lake – which will really be aimed at higher performance devices such as desktops. To add to the confusion, the 10nm cannon lake will appear likely next year.
It has been confirmed that the I7-8700K and I5-8600K will indeed feature 6 cores (and 12 or 6 threads, respectively) along with the need for a 300-series based Intel motherboard.
Meanwhile, AMD Raven Ridge specs and information has leaked onto the internet, showing Vega 8 hardware demonstrating more Compute Units than Vega 10!
