Kabylake to use Kabylake PCH

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I've been doing some reading and would like for someone for knowledgable to explain something.

It seems as if Kabylake will not be compatible with the z170 chipset but will in turn be using something new. Kabylake PCH. It is also rumored that the Skylake-X HEDT will function on this chipset also. Does that mean that HEDT and consumer performance grade CPUs will use the same chipset? This just doesn't seem likely to me? Am I reading this incorrectly?

We don't know exactly what's happening at this point. Kaby Lake-S is due Q1 2017, which should work with Z170. Whether or not Intel releases any of them unlocked is up for grabs. It almost looks like they want to only release unlocked parts on the HEDT platform.

This is the post I was referring to.

http://wccftech.com/intel-skylake-x-kaby-lake-x-q2-2017-roadmap-leak/

What really caught my eye was this..

"It looks like Skylake-X family won’t be compatible with the new Socket P (LGA 3647) which we saw earlier. That socket is being built for 2S, 4S and 8S+ configurations so 1S processors will still feature support on Socket R that is LGA 2011-3. Intel will be however making a new PCH known as Kaby Lake PCH which will allow compatibility for the Skylake-X and Skylake-W chips."

And this is what I'm talking about:


Kaby Lake-S for Z170/Z270/1151 is still set to launch, but we also have a Kaby Lake-X on the roadmaps now, which may suggest Intel might keep all unlocked chips on the enthusiast line from now on.

Interesting. So piecing things together we could be looking at a locked Kabylake chip launch compatible for z170/1151 and future launch of Kabylake "K" unlocked that only supports dual channel memory on a chipset/board that will support quad channel Skylake X chips?

I'm baffled by the time and effort Intel is putting in to prevent mainstream desktop users from overclocking. Does that mean we won't be having an i5 7600K processor, since they're moving all of their unlocked models into the 10+ core enthusiast series?

That's kind of what it looks like. Who knows what their plans are.

That's crazy. I guess I shouldn't be surprised with what's been going on in the GPU market is not shocking Intel will mark a 4c8T processor unlocked as a high end desktop processor and increase the price 20%

Kaby Lake samples are doing north of 5 GHz stable on air, and it's old news that LGA3647 isn't for 1P processors, I said that weeks ago smile.gif
