    Volta is Q2 2018 the Earliest. Coffelake.... anyone's guess. To be frank, there is always better tech around the corner. And machines have been let to run hotter and hotter and thinner and thinner....

    Get what you wan't or need now and don't play the something great can be next game, Its hard to win.

    Volta won't come earlier than March-April of 2018 - not worth it. As for Coffee - it will be the same as last time, +5% performance. Not worth it. Intel won't put a 6-core in the consumer mobile chip - they'd have trouble with power and heat.

    Thanks again for the response! Alright then. I guess Volta won't be worth the wait
