While we have already got the K series Intel Coffee Lake chips we have been waiting for the high end locked versions and here we have some listings of the Intel Coffee Lake i5-8500 as well as the 8600. A Celeron variant has also been spotted and you can read all about it here.
Seeing how these non-K series chips have been spotted it is safe to assume that the entry-level and non-Z series motherboards are not too far off. If you have got a locked CPU and have been waiting for the mainstream motherboards to come out then it would seem that the wait is not too long.

While these chips are coming out we already have plenty of CPU options on the market from AMD that are very competitive especially if you are on the budget. If you are looking for an entry-level CPU around the $170 mark then you should check out the AMD Ryzen 2400G as well as the much cheaper AMD Ryzen 2200G.
Both these chips come with AMD Vega graphics so they are way more powerful in the graphics department as compared to Intel integrated HD graphics.
Let us know what you think about these CPUs and whether or not you are interested getting one of these chips for yourself.
