[Anandtech]Intel begins shipment of Seventh Generation Core: Kaby Lake

Intel had their Q2 earnings today, and while we’ll get to that shortly, some news came out of the earnings call that was interesting. Intel CEO Brian Krzanich stated on their earnings call that Intel is now shipping their 7th Generation Core processor, code named Kaby Lake.
Quote:
When Intel says they are shipping, they of course mean they are shipping to their device manufacturer partners, so we should start seeing Kaby Lake based computers this fall

Damn, I just bought a skylake rMB, but Apple is slow and could not hold on any longer. Dat Kaby Lake would have been nice.....

And MSI showed off a Z270 motherboard a few weeks ago, "launching in November". Huh. Maybe 14nm yields actually are a lot better now.

Well, well, well. Maybe I'll just skip Skylake and wait for KL and Zen to lower my prices for a solid 8-threaded beast. God knows BF1 @ 120Hz will be demanding.... frown.gif


A note to Gigabyte, MSI, EVGA, ASRock, and ASUS: please have decent BIOSes on launch. None of this DDR4 "incompatibility", no 2005-era fan control, stop with Killer NIC (with its huge CPU usage, negating the point of overclocking), and can we please have some more white motherboards this time around? I'm tired of black PCB.

There's a reason people like the GALAX HOF cards. White is clean.

No enthusiast overclockeable this year, right?

Actually, judging from MSI's Z270 motherboard, I am confident i7-7700K will launch this year in November-ish. What's the point of a Z-series motherboard without a K-series CPU?

That would be awesome.
Actually they mention good yields, and Kaby Lake being delivered on time, thanks to it.
I don't know, I hope you're right. I'm getting ready to build from scrach, and really don't want to go Skylake at this point.
So, either Zen shines, or I wait for Kaby.

Smart man.

Ohhh, I think I was getting it wrong.

Kaby Lake-X and Skylake-X are set to be released in 2H 2017. But those are socket 2066.

So the 1151 Kaby Lake, including the K version may be released this year, along with Z270 motherboards.

Truth. Skylake has good performance and good overclocking, but all the "other" things have made it feel like a "meh" upgrade.

Yes. SL/KL-X are more interesting (or confusing?). It's like Intel is completely moving their "high end" parts off from the consumer socket. I mean, with LGA 2066, they'll support 4-core CPUs on the high-end socket.

Kaby Lake -X sounds just like the i7-7700K: 4c/8t, 16 lanes of PCIe, 2 channel DDR4....except at a 112W TDP instead of a 91W TDP. Does that mean it will be a bigger die? How can they can fit a 10c in the same socket as a 4c? Presumably, the 4c will just be getting "bigger"--that is, it might use solder, too, then.

I'm unsure what exactly is going with their transition from E to X. We'll see.

Better yields also means more and perhaps better "Golden" chips?
