Op-ed: The desktop CPU isn’t dead, it just needs a swift kick in the butt | Ars Technica

'Assuming a two-to-three year lead time for new architectures, it makes sense that we won’t see six-core mainstream desktop chips from Intel until 2018. '

'But it doesn’t mean that desktop performance needs to stop improving. '

'Finally, they need more robust quad-channel memory controllers to keep all of those cores fed compared to the dual-channel controllers in mainstream processors. ', "Granted, that's not a problem for many casual-to-moderate PC users, and it's not like Intel's chips haven't improved in other big ways in the last half-decade."

'But the “Coffee Lake” desktop chips will remain on the 14nm process until well into 2018. '
