Intel Core i5-8500, i5-8600 (non-K), and Celeron G49xx Listed on Newegg

Four of Intel's latest 8th generation Core "Coffee Lake" processors that are part of the company's second wave of products for the LGA1151 (300-series) platform, surfaced on Newegg. These include the Core i5-8500 (model: BX80684I58500), the Core i5-8600 non-K (BX80684I58600), the Celeron G4920 (BX80684G4920), and the G4900. The Core i5-8500 and i5-8600 fill the price-performance gap between the i5-8400 and the i5-8600K; while the G4900 could be the cheapest processor you can buy on this platform. The i5-8500 is listed at USD $215.99, the i5-8600 at $239.99, the G4920 at $65.99, and the G4900 at $54.99. The product pages don't include specs yet, but at the time of this writing, both the i5-8500 and the G4920 can be added to cart. Intel is planning to expand its 8th generation Core, Pentium, and Celeron processor families before the end of Q1-2018, along with motherboards based on the more cost-effective B360 Express and H310 Express chipsets.

Except they were backwards compatible for the most part. Intel sockets just aren't at all.

Wait i have even a better comparison

AMD: green
Intel: Blue (yuk!)

Thus, AMD is better.

Now also shows up on Amazon. Hoping these cpu's will ship with some spectre/meltdown mitigation so we won't have to wait for a motherboard manufacturer for a firmware fix.

Most certainty there's no hw fix for those yet. SW fix by shipping microcode is mostly what intel can have done in these chips. And well yeah if you are going to buy z370 motherboard, you will have to update it's bios anyway for those(a) to get it even supporting new cpus, b) needs new firmware anyway for spectre and meltdown). Most probably lesser boards(H370, B360, H310) will be on the go with protected firmwares though.

That's called cherry-picking.
AMD: AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM1, AM4, FM1, FM2, FM2+ just for consumer segment alone. Even within the same socket the compatibility can be a huge issue.
And since you've added LGA2011 and LGA1366 to the mix, then to be fair we should add AMD HEDT/Server sockets, like G3, C32, G34, SP3, TR4 just for the past decade...

Isn't this also cherry picking? FM2 CPUs work on FM2+ motherboards. Ditto goes from AM2+.

FM1 was only used for low end APUs and athlons. You'd have to include all of Intel's low end BGA and atom sockets if you included that.

Why don't we just put the semantics aside and simply agree that Intel has more consumer desktop sockets than AMD.
