Earlier on we already mentioned that the Coffee lake Z370 motherboards shelf-date is to be expect on October 5th. However now it is confirmed through a UK etailer that the processors would launch that date as well.
It's VERY likely that October 5th is the availability date as a stock supply screenshot from an etail surfaced on the web, pcgameshardware spotted it from a user on reddit. Coffee Lake (8th gen) six-core processors are based on the LGA1151 socket, but will require a new motherboard chipset. They have a TDP of either 65 or 95W. There will be be two 6 cores models with HT (12MB L3), an two without HT (9MB L3). The four core models (8MB L3) will not get hyper-threading, which confirms earlier rumors.
