Intel is planning to stream its launch live on Facebook, and says that punters can expect to learn more about Coffee Lake's "blazing fast" performance and virtual reality credentials, while also catching a glimpse of some of the 'amazing system designs' based on 8th-generation Intel Core processors.
The company also confirms that the first Coffee Lake systems will be available later this year, noting: "Start planning for what new 8th-gen Intel Core processor-based device to purchase in the holiday season and even before."
The leak also indicated a part with a 3.5GHz base clock speed, but capable of boosting to 4.3GHz on at least one core, and a 12MB level-3 cache.
We also know that Intel's 8th-gen chips, which were originally supposed to be appearing in 2018 on the 10nm fab node, will be produced on current 14nm facilities , but Intel has publicly claimed that these Coffee Lake processors will be 15 to 30 per cent faster than its previous generation Kaby Lake chips.
The Facebook Live launch event will take place on Monday 21 August at 5pm, UK time.
