After over a year of rumors and leaks, Intel will finally unveil official details on the Kaby Lake successor through a live Facebook streaming event starting on August 21st at 8 AM PST. Intel has purposefully planned the unveil date to match this year's solar eclipse day for those living in North America.

According to Intel's press room teaser, the live stream will be hosted by Intel CCG VP Gregory Bryant to go over specifics about the 8th generation Intel Core family. Viewers will have a sneak peek at "amazing system designs" and learn how Coffee Lake will drive VR development and imaging. The chipmaker is also implying that the first Coffee Lake notebooks will be available before the Holiday season.

The timing of the the live stream seems to coincide with upcoming announcements from Lenovo and Dell. Both of these major manufacturers are expected to unveil new products in the coming weeks that are likely based on Intel's 8th generation of processors. Existing rumors have already hinted at quad-core ULV U-class notebook processors, hexa-core desktop SKUs, and integrated UHD Graphics options.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
