  • Leaked Intel 8th-gen CPU (new mobo series confirmed)

    So with the leaked news about the new Intel 8th-Gen stuff in the pipeline I think I've found the perfect time to upgrade!

    I've been itching to upgrade my i5-2500K setup which would of course need a new mobo and ram etc anyway, thankfully I held off long enough to hear this news!

    So I shall be waiting with cash in hand for the new gear to drop!

    for those on older platforms i agree it is about to be a great time to upgrade as these and ryzen will both offer a great step in performance compared to the tick tock of the last few gen.

    but for those of us already on 1151 socket systems needing a new mobo is something of a kick in the groin

      I can see how that would be frustrating for you guys already on 1151, especially since this new 8th-Gen stuff is apparently the same socket but with only a slightly revised pin payout.

        more so when the first "leaks" were done on the same platform already on sale

          First person to make an adaptor to allow 8th gen CPUs to be able to fit current gen sockets will be on to a winner,...

            I have an i7-920 & an i7-3770 that both need upgrading. I think i will re-use the 3770 in the desktop and get a new system for the gaming PC...and a 1080ti when they come down in price

                or if you're too lazy to read this video covers the same info, why steve is great!!!!

                should note that 4.4ghz is not a great oc on either the 25k or fx8 chips. tbh i would consider them both the minimum you could get. but it comes as no shock that ipc wins over cores for gaming

                  I've got mine OCd to 4GHz already, would I be safe upping that to 4.4Ghz on an H60 or should I be looking at a bigger rad for that?

                  That review might have just saved me a whole load of money. lol

                    sandy was the last soldered chip so i would guess it is still running cool? the net is full of guides on what to do/not do with sandy.

                    just keep an eye on your temps and watch for thermal throttle. that is when you know you have too much voltage

                      Another new motherboard required for the same socket design. Another boring Intel release that no one cares for. Moving on...

                        On bright side sounds like Zen+ 7nm will pop into current boards with simple bios update.

                          That it will. Hopefully the 15% IPC increase will also coincide with a better OC potential.

                            i hope they get a better clocking revision out on this gen before going to the + tbh

                              Hopefully they do like G0 version of the Q6600, but for Ryzen.
