My System Specs

I don't have a Coffee Lake system obviously, just curious as to where this 8-core chip might fall in the sequence of chips, and of course if 8-cores worked in the existing boards one could get a used board and new chip, perhaps save little money.
it's surmised that the 8 core processor is Intel's planned response to the Ryzen Plus, which is why they think an R7 2800 and 2800X weren't launched/announced. It may have been reserved to see what Intel did.

now that's all guestimation, but it makes sense.
