Intel roadmap shows when to expect Coffee Lake-S

Intel 300 series

During the recent GALAX GOC 2017 Gaming event in China, some of the industry's biggest players and Chinese reseller partners were there. As well as the event sponsor, both NVIDIA and Intel explained the upcoming market trends and plans. A new report from MyDrivers suggests upcoming Intel plans.

The roadmap shows the desktop processor product from now until the end of 2018. Before looking too closely to the chart, you should understand that the rounded box represent the production windows and not market availability. The premium series like Skylake-X and Kaby Lake-X will be available until Q4 next year. After that we should start to see Cascade Lake-X. According to MyDrivers, Cascade Lake-X will be 14nm++ and compatible with LGA2066. Intel Cascade Lake-X will be a Skylake-X refresh.

Regarding the mainstream desktop series, we should see Coffee Lake-S processors already next year. If you look at the production rectangle, it looks like January or February will be the time. Furthermore there are already few leaks regarding th upcoming generation of processors. In other words the Intel 300 series could be available sooner rather then later.

Last but not least, the new roadmap shows that in the low-power desktop segment Intel is preparing Gemini Lake as the replacement to its Apollo Lake line. According to the image, the N-Series chips will start from the last couple of weeks of 2017.
