K-Series Intel Coffee Lake Refreshes To be Soldered For Higher Clock Speeds, Will Be Revealed On August 1

Intel has a vast portfolio of CPUs and Intel Coffee Lake refreshes are yet to release. Now it seems that Intel Coffee Lake-S CPUs are going to be revealed on August 1, 2018, and the K-Series Intel CPUs will come with soldered heatspreaders if the report is to be believed.

The report comes from German tech trade who has revealed that Intel’s NDA for the Coffee Lake refreshes is expiring on August 1, 2018.

According to the report, K-series Intel Coffee Lake refreshes will arrive with soldered heatspreaders instead of thermal interface material.

The soldered heatspreader for K-series Intel Coffee Lake refreshes will help CPUs to better manage the temperatures at higher clock speeds.

Not only that, the report suggests that they also received a sample for testing, a 6-Core CPU which the CPU-Z recognizes as the Intel Core i7-8086K with a higher clock speed of 5.5 GHz after overclocking.

As for the eight core Intel CPU, well the report suggests that source of theirs hasn’t received any sample for 8-Core Intel CPU.

However, given that Intel is under constant pressure from AMD Ryzen’s 8-Core consumer CPUs, it is likely that Intel will be releasing the 8-Core Intel Core i9-9900K with the upcoming Intel Coffee Lake refreshes.

However, take it with a grain of salt as this is just a rumor but, if the report is indeed true then we will be seeing the reveal of upcoming Intel Coffee Lake refreshes on August 1, 2018.

Speaking of Intel CPUs, Intel’s CPUs based on the 10 nm process node have been delayed and that is no secret. However, the leaked roadmap for Intel CPUs has revealed that Intel 10 nm CPUs have been pushed to 2020.

According to the roadmap, Intel will be bringing the Z390 chipset motherboard in Q3 2018 possibly with the launch of 8-core Coffee Lake consumer-level CPUs.

Furthermore, a couple of Intel Whiskey Lake-U CPUs have also leaked online. The leaked Intel Whiskey Lake-U CPUs are Core i5-8265U and Core i7-8565U.

What do you think of the soldered heatspreader for the upcoming K-series Intel Coffee Lake refreshes? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
