So we gonna finally see a i5's 6-core?

I was going for Kaby Lake because it was the last tock/optimization of 14 nm, but now that there's another tock featuring 6 cores then it's a no-brainer. :infinity: A good coffee is worth waiting a little more.

About time they do this. Many people can't afford 6 core extreme cpus and the way games do scale it sounds like the 6 core should be a worthwhile upgrade for many users. It all depends on price though

I guess the high-end i5 and all i7 will get 6 cores.

Nah, I'm thinking i3 will be 2 cores, i5 4 cores and i7 6 cores
This.

Nice, "might" be upgrading sooner than I thought. Wonder what clock speeds where looking at? 4ghz stock or no real point for me, to be honest 4ghz stock or no point for anyone... apart from maybe they will be cheaper?

I think i'll wait until 10nm Cannonlake before I upgrade from my 4790K. And even then it's still a maybe upgrade. Curse this brilliant chip! It will be sad if AMD can't catch up to Intel at least a little bit. It's not looking good and I don't have high hopes for Zen. If they can't beat my i7 in single threaded apps with their highest tier CPU, it will be more Intel domination for the future.
If AMD manages to catch to intels lets say between haswell-e and broadwell-e performance with 8 core Zen. I am just going to get that. I am starting to hate my z68+3770k combo 😀 @slyphnier coffee is always bad. Unless it does not taste like coffee, but then it ain't coffee. 😀

What about the Broadwell E successor Skylake X, isn't that supposed to come late 2017 aswell?

Why not just i3 4 core, i5 6 core then i7 6 core with HT?
https://forums.guru3d.com/data/avatars/m/246/246171.jpg
I have no interest in buying Intel unless they offer an overclockable 6-core without HT. I'd also much rather they stop shipping i5s and i7s with IGPs and then sell them for a lower price. I have never known anybody who intentionally used the IGP of a desktop i7 beyond diagnostics.

Well this is indeed good news. Here is what I am thinking with Coffee Lake. i3s the same as they always been 2C/4T. The K based i5s 4C/8T Yeah Im thinking that high end i5s will have hyperthreading. The i7s will be 6C/12T like mentioned before. I am interested if Intel will be making a 6core moible chip for laptops? Since they have moible quads now.

That's not really how it works. Each product is named based on features like instruction sets; they don't necessarily correspond to performance brackets. That's why there are i7s that range from 2 to 10 physical cores, yet I'm not aware of a single desktop i5 with HT. I also wouldn't keep hopes up for a 6-core mobile chip. It's hard enough finding true quad cores (with the exception of Atom-based models).

It's getting real hard to keep track with Intel's generations/names/sockets/etc. I just hope Zen will hit them in the nuts, so that price/performance ratio will come back on decent levels and that multi-core support will take a bigger role in the coming years. Personally I plan to hold on on my 5820K for as long as I can, because as things are now, it's still an overkill for gaming, and should be even more so if DX12/Vulkan picks up.

Still using Westmere 32nm myself... and that already is 6 core since 2010! ...getting a bit sick of the bull**** money making scheme that is change motherboard/memory etc by adding a few pins to new CPU.

The end is near guys. We are reaching 5nm barrier.

I believe this is in response to Zen. Make Intel chips minimum 6 core and that might mean no Zen 4c 8t because maybe only the Zen 8c 16t will match Intel's 6c 12t i7 or even just a 6c no t i5. So i5's will get a boost by 2 extra cores but no HT. In gaming a multi-threaded title loves cores and 6 seems like a sweet spot so i'll be watching out for those 6 core i5's with a lot of interest.
