We have been waiting a long time for Intel Coffee Lake-S CPUs and supporting non-Z series motherboards to come out and it seems that we only need to wait a few more days before these Intel Coffee Lake-S CPUs and supporting chipsets hit the shelves. The CPUs will be released on April 3rd. Reviewers have got their kits and we have already seen mainstream motherboards being stocked at different retailers around the world.
From the report that we have been getting from various sources, it seems that there will be 8 CPUs in total in the Intel Coffee Lake-S lineup. There will also be more than 35 different motherboards to choose from. These include B360, B370 and H310 motherboards and the Intel Coffee Lake-S CPUs will include Core i5, Pentium Gold, and Celeron processors.
There have been plenty of people waiting on these mainstream motherboards and we are finally going to get these next month. If you have been waiting for the upcoming Intel Coffee Lake-S motherboards then you only need to wait a little longer.
AMD Ryzen 2000 series motherboards are also coming out next month. While we have been hearing about an Intel 8 core CPU coming out, we have heard that it will be supported by the Z390 chipset and not the mainstream ones. Having that said if you are interested in getting the most number of cores and threads for the money then you would be better off looking at the AMD Ryzen 2700X or the 2600X.
But Intel does have superior performance in games and when it comes to single-threaded workloads so that is something to keep in mind when making your next purchase. If you are not concerned about the cost and are looking for the best performance then you should opt for Intel.
Let us know what you think about the upcoming Coffee Lake-S CPUs and whether or not you are interested in getting one of these CPUs when they come out next month.
