On Intel Optan DC P4800X

Intel
It looks like Intel is working heavily on their upcoming Optane solid state drives. According to the vendor the DC P4800X should offer 21 times the endurance compared to MLC NAND flash memory. All these new solid state drives are going to be based on the 3D X-Point to non volatile memory of which Intel is hoping that it’s going to replace a NAND flash.

Increased clock speeds

Intel
Also during their annual investors meeting Intel announced that are going to launch yet another Xeon E7 processor. This particular chip is going to be based on the Broadwell-EX architecture featuring 24 cores at the clock speed of 2.4 GHz. Apparently this being a Xeon E7 chip it’s going to be quite pricey retailing at 8898 US-Dollar a piece.

Finally some competition from AMD?

Intel
Yesterday Intel held their annual investors day, presenting new details on the upcoming Cannonlake architecture. The chip giant is promising a 15% increase in performance over the previous Kaby Lake architecture.

Expected in August

Intel
A few days ago according to a report from CPCHardware, Intel is currently planning to release two new Core i7 and Core i5 processors. Thanks to an update from our friends over at PCGH, both CPUs might belong to the upcoming Kaby Lake-X series. On top of that Intel will also launch their Skylake-X series CPUs during this years Gamescom in August.

Right before AMD launches Ryzen

Intel
According to a report from CPCHardware, Intel is currently planning to release two new Core i7 and Core i5 processors. These two could be the Core i7-7740K and the Core i5-7640K and Intel might already add those chips to their portfolio next week. Right now, AMD's Ryzen line up is rumored to consist of several R7, R5 and R3 CPUs. The R7 and R5 SKUs are supposed to compete against Intel’s Core i7 and Core i5 chips, while the quad core R3 series should be up against the Core i3 CPUs.

For pro-consumers

Intel
It looks like Intel is going to respond to AMD launching their Ryzen CPUs shortly. That response will include a new series of Xeon Gold line CPUs. This announcement comes right after a huge leak on AMD Ryzen CPUs and even according to Intel the upcoming AMD Ryzen R7-1800X CPU has a very good cost/performance ratio in creative and productivity applications.

Within 2017

Intel
A few months ago, it was reported that Intel might license AMD's iGPU technology to Intel for integration into its future processors. HardOCP's Kyle Bennet made those rumors appear in May last year reporting that Intel and AMD’s Radeon Technology Group were talking about supplying iGPUs for future Intel CPUs.

Eight new models

Intel
Intel Kaby Lake desktop and mobile processors have been available for a few weeks however the Xeon models are still missing. According to a document that appeared on CPU-World, a batch of Xeon E3-1200 v6 processors is to be available soon. So far the list includes only quad core models and six of them have Hyperthreading on board.

New HEDT chips

Intel
While we’ve already seen plenty of leaks and benchmarks based on AMD's upcoming Ryzen processors, some new details on the Intel X299 architecture have surfaced. According to rumors from Benchlife.info, Intel will launch their Core i7-7000 Skylake-X series during the next Gamescom in August.

Launched over 10 years ago

Intel
Almost a decade ago Intel released the Core 2 Extreme QX6700 processor, which was the first Intel quad-core CPU for the desktop market. This being an Extreme-series chip the asking price was pretty high. However a few months later Intel released the Core 2 Quad Q6600, which also came with four cores but was much more affordable.

Almost as quick as the Intel Core i5-2500K

Intel
With the launch of Kaby Lake Intel has brought change to their Pentium lineup which includes Hyperthreading. This means there are now Pentium CPUs with two cores and four threads available for as little as 75 Euro. Thanks to Hyperthreading, the performance level of the new Intel Pentium CPUs is much closer to Intel’s Core i3 chips.

On Core i7-7700K

Intel
If you have close look at the latest Z270 motherboards from MSI, you find a knob allowing you to automatically overclock your CPU. This feature should allow novices to increase overall CPU performance, while in the background the board boosts the vCore pretty significantly to achieve these increased clock speeds.

Two cores and four threads

Intel
With the launch of Kaby Lake Intel has brought change to their Pentium lineup as well. These chips will now for the first time support Hyperthreading. This means there are now Pentium CPUs with two cores and four threads available for as little as 75 Euro.

Big temperature gap

Intel
Intel’s Kaby Lake CPUs are finally available and meanwhile there is even whole lot of suitable Z270 motherboards available. Although the Z270 motherboards are basically a refresh it appears that some vendors are still dealing with issues every there and there. Our friends over at Gamersnexus for example have spotted some abnormal behavior regarding CPU temperatures.

Intel shows running 10nm CPU

Cannon Lake in action

Intel
Cannon Lake is going be Intel’s next die shrink moving from 14nm process technology to 10nm. During their CES press conference Intel has shown a working 10nm Cannon Lake CPU for the first time.

Intel
There have already been plenty of leaks from other websites regarding Intel’s upcoming Core i7-7700K Kaby Lake CPU. Today we can finally show some of our own tests. A few weeks ago we have started testing all the new motherboards in order to our motherboard charts as well as our Content Creation articles updated.

As fast as a Core i5-2500K

Intel
While we’ve already seen plenty of leaks and benchmarks based on Intel's upcoming Core i7-7700K and Core i5-7600K Kaby Lake processors, some new details on the Core i3-7350K emerged on Youtube. Due to a review from the youtuber “Hardware Unboxed”, we can finally see how quick this CPU is.

Tested at Guru3D

Intel
While we’ve already seen plenty of leaks and benchmarks based on Intel's upcoming Core i7-7700K Kaby Lake processors, some new details on the Core i5-7600K appeared. A few days ago we have seen new details on Intel’s Core i7-7700K and today it’s the Core i5-7600K’s turn.

Same TIM related problem as usual

Intel
Checking the Forums on Anandtech, there is user RichUK who managed to get his hands on an early retail version von Intel’s Core i7-7700K Kaby Lake CPU. After having tested this CPU as he got it now delidded the chip, which helped to drastically improve temperatures.

Requires Intel X299 chipset

Intel
According to a report from DigiTimes, Intel's Skylake-X series might be released in Q3 2017 during Gamescom 2017 in Cologne. These new CPUs will require you to buy a new motherboard since they will use a new socket - LGA 2066. The platform is called Basin Falls and also includes new CPUs.
