    of course that is how it is. intel claimed 14nm+ over 14nm to be more performance and power efficient, that may only hold true at a certain clock.

    CFL however will be 14nm++ and i have heard from sources where its based on CNL design. 3rd party slides confirm over 11% better ST performance but thats with a bit higher clock and faster IMC. we won't know until it's release and tested.

    honest to god i would care more about how well it overclock and if the laptop it goes into can cool it, everything else is secondary assuming IPC remains the same as KBL.

    Well, well, well, "Iced Coffee Lake" in 2H18...

    Intel To Launch Ice Lake 8 Core, 16 Thread Mainstream CPUs in Second Half of 2018 – Will Feature Support on 300 Series Platform
    http://wccftech.com/intel-10nm-ice-lake-8-core-16-thread-mainstream-cpu-leak/

    "The details come from Eurocom, a known manufacturer of high-end laptops and workstations that are designed to be mobile yet fully upgradable.

    A representative of the company revealed on Note book Review forums that they will update their Tornado F5 laptop to the Z390 chipset, supporting Intel’s 8 Core, 16 Thread CPUs arriving in 2H 2018. The rep also mentioned that the Tornado F7 will also receive an update but the company has no plans to update their Tornado series to the current Z370 chipset which launches in a few weeks."

    And, the leak comes full circle back to NBR ;)

    Oh my, tech reporting nowadays.
    They don't seem to be aware of no Tornado F7 existing as well.
    Still, Eurocom pretty much corroborated info we already had regarding Z390/2H18

    Then again honestly you are never doing that much with the ram anyway.

    Moving them closer to the socket will improve ram clocking/performance which IMO (especially on ryzen) is more important.

    If it gave 1080 performance it would not be an issue but you need 1080 cooling on a 1060 class card :/

    Yeah I think Ryzen laptops makes sense, but not with 580...

    The 580 looks so underwhelming, a Ryzen and gtx 1070 would do the trick.
