The first one to be based on the new chips
Intel has launched their 545s SSD which use 64-layer 3D NAND to offer further increased storage density compared to SSDs powered by standard Planar NAND. With the 545s, Intel offers a unit based on a Silicon Motion SM2258 controller. At this moment the 545s is only available with 512GB capacity, but models ranging from 128GB up to 2 TB can be expected.
Compared to our test system
Although the acclaimed launch date will be somewhen in August news leaks related to Coffee Lake are making it through almost every day now. This time Wccftech jumped the gun and they found another leak in the Geekbench database. In order to do some comparison, we have run quick test with our Core i7-5820K at stock clocks.
To be announced in August?
More information about the overclock capability
A few pages of an overclocking reviewer’s guide on Intel's X299 Kaby Lake-X platform and CPUs have leaked. According to this document a “good” Intel Core i7-7740X chip is supposed to run Cinebench R15 at 5.0 GHz and 1.205v in combination with a potent CPU cooler. If you’re lucky it could even be possible that you’d be able to run your chip at 5.2 GHz, but with higher voltages - of course.
Flagship models expected for October
During the pre-show days at the PC Gaming Show E3, Intel has revealed the launch date for its Core X series of CPUs. The first Kaby Lake-X and Skylake-X chips will go on pre-order by June 19 and the first units are going to be shipped the following week. At launch everything from the four core Core i5-7640K chip all the way up to the ten core Core i9-7900X processor is going to be available.
To be launched in Early 2018
It looks like Intel is working hard lately. At the moment we are waiting for Kaby Lake-X and Skylake-X which should be released soon and after that Coffee lake seems to be knocking on the door already. According to Intel, Cannon Lake is on track and Ice Lake has taped in as well. Ice Lake will be the second generation of 10nm processors while Cannon Lake will be the first.
Up to 4TB of capacity
In three months already?
i7-7800X, i7-7820X and i9-7900X
Although the acclaimed launch date will be somewhen during the upcoming months news leaks related to Skylake-X are making it through almost every day. This time wccftech jumped the gun and they have found some leaks in the Geekbench database. The results are pretty impressive, with the Intel Core i9-7900X hitting over 57'000 points in the multi-core benchmark.
Sounds too good to be true, right?
It looks like we’re closing in on what appears to be another launch of an Intel CPU lineup. Otherwise there is no way explaining why there are this many leaks surfacing regarding unreleased products. Some forum user from Dutch website Hardware.info has apparently had his hands on an upcoming Intel Core i9 7900X (10 core) as well as an Intel core i9 7920X (12 core).
Up to 12 cores
Intel tells to stop overclocking
During the past three months, some owners of Intel Core i7-7700 and 7700K processors have been complaining about unusual temperature increases. According to user accounts, temperatures can sometimes hit 90°C and reach the maximum 100°C threshold. Intel has finally come up with a response to the complaints, though the answer is not really offering any solutions to the users.
Better late than never
Firing back at AMD?
First samples in late June
First samples in late June?
According to Benchlife, Intel’s upcoming X299 series chipset as well as the Skylake-X and Kaby Lake-X processors might have been rescheduled to launch more than a month before the original launch date. In other words if Intel doesn't find issues with their LGA 2066 motherboard platform, we might see Intel X299 already in June.
Featuring AMD iGP
We already have heard rumors about AMD licensing their Radeon integrated graphics chips to Intel for further use in their processors. Now new rumors are emerging that an unannounced Intel Kaby Lake-G series chip might feature such an AMD iGP in the shape of a multi chip module sitting on a single PCB.

According to a rumor from Benchlife.info, Intel is going to launch their Core i7-7000 Skylake-X series processors during Gamescom in August. This new series of CPUs will be a bit different compared to what we have seen so far from Intel. With X299, the manufacturer is going to launch a platform that will be host to processors with four to ten cores.
