Any News Regarding 8C/16T Intel CPUs in the Future?

Maybe I'm overthinking this and look ahead to the future but I was wondering what about Intel's plans for releasing their mainstream 8c/16t CPUs in the future? I'd like to start planning my ITX or Micro ATX (that you can fit into a suitcase) build.

There are leaks about a z390 chipset to support a 8c/16t cpu but I would as always take those with a mountain of salt. You can still plan your build with the 8700k and z370 motherboard and just swap out that with maybe the 8900k and a z390 motherboard.

I do, but I feel like I should go all the way - the Intel way, with an 8c/16t CPU - for gaming purposes only, that is, and while it's atrociously overkill eventually games will start using more than four cores and threads...

lol by the time games regularly start using 6 cores let alone 4 cores your z390 will be obsolete. but clearly money isnt an issue so you can just get what evers best when they do utilize 8c

You mean obsolete because it's way overkill?

no mi saying we can barely get game devs to take advantage of 4 cores and weve had 4 cores as a pretty good standard cpu for a logn long time, by the time they actually optimize for 6 or even 8 cores it will be 30 years from now lol

mostly just an exageration ;)

Leaks suggest that its 2nd quarter of 2018, with 8c/16t for Intel i7s and the rest of the line up like the i5 and i3 will also have hyperthreading enabled to come into parity with Ryzen.

Let's hope so!
