    I haven't been following Clevo recently. Has some new chassis with 8250/8550u + mx150/GTX 1050 been announced or is expected in the next few months?

    Basically because only Kaby Lake-R is available in the near future - CF hasn't been released yet. Appreciate there is a little confusion over what substitutes an 8th Gen Intel mobile CPU at the moment.

    This Reddit comment thread details exactly what Coffee Lake is meant to be: a reactionary core count increase using the exact same process and cores as Kaby Lake.

    TL;DR: Coffee Lake = slower base clocks for more cores, because thermals.

    I like the title of that thread :)

    Thermodynamics applies to the 8700k - this isn't magical candy land without science. self.buildapc

    "I keep seeing " 7700k with two more cores " or "it'll overclock like a 7700k with two more cores" and "the reason the 7700k ran hot was bad TIM"

    Well, first of all we can't really say how high the CPU can overclock. What we can say is this.
    • More cores generate more heat.
    • The 8700K will be the same size as the 7700k
    • There will be more heat in the same amount of space.
    • The hotter a CPU gets the more electrical resistance is applied.
    • Electrical resistance can cause overclocks to be unstable.
    • The base clock is drastically lower than the 7700k base clock."

    More cores on the same process would lead to a larger die...
