Intel is on the verge of launching its 8th generation Core "Coffee Lake" processor family with six SKUs, and its top-tier Z370 Express chipset, early next month. Those looking for cheaper motherboards and don't intend on overclocking their processor, will have to wait until the first quarter of 2018, with the company confirming Q1-2018 as the launch window of three of its client-desktop chipsets for 8th generation Core processors, in a leaked Desktop outlook slide, scored by GamersNexus.

Among the new desktop chipsets launched will be the H370 Express, B360 Express, and the H310 Express. The H370 Express offers essentially the same platform connectivity as the Z370 Express, minus CPU overclocking and NVIDIA SLI certification. The B360 Express has a slimmer connectivity loadout, and lacks SLI support, but its predecessors have been generally preferred by gamers wanting to build single-GPU rigs with CPUs running at stock speeds, which is why major motherboard brands have built gamer-centric motherboards on B-series chipsets. The H310 chipset has the lightest connectivity, and is designed to power entry-level motherboards.



Intel could also expand its 8th generation Core family a little, by adding 2-core/4-thread SKUs in the Pentium brand. It could also launch energy-efficient "S" models of its 6-core and quad-core "Coffee Lake" processors, with TDP ranging between 35W and 65W. The company will launch corporate-ready Q370 and Q360 chipsets with enterprise-client features such as vPro, sometime in Q2-2018.

Sometime between late-October and early-November 2017, Intel could launch new Pentium and Celeron low-power SoCs based on the "Gemini Lake" platform, consisting of quad-core and dual-core CPUs, under the 10W envelope. Among the models launched are Pentium J500S, Celeron J410S, and Celeron J400S.

Late-October 2017, Intel could launch its third Optane cache-SSD SKU after its rather underwhelming 16 GB and 32 GB SKUs; the Optane 900P. These drives come in 240 GB and 480 GB sizes, and are unlikely to be based on 3D XPoint memory, more likely on 3D NAND flash, fronted by a high-bandwidth NVMe interface. It's unclear if Intel wants to continue selling these as "cache SSDs."

Why would the Optane SSD be optimised for Star Citizen ?

2018 is probably gonna be AMD for me with Ryzen Gen2 (after 3 intel CPUs since 2007-ish).

My Current Motherboard and CPU will be old enough by then to justify and upgrade.

Also want to get rid of this terrible PCI-E Lane limit of 16.

Same here hopefully, 2600k on its own is fine but for livestreaming its getting on a bit

I'll buy that SSD. Wish it was out now. I don't think I'll be replacing a CPU for some time though.

Buzzword optimized for buzzword. Intel marketing braindeads at work.
I was more thinking about Star Citizen.
Someone at Roberts Industries OK'd this.
Is Star Citizen going to have an option for a cache drive or something ?
