Is this news?

There are _zero_ changes to Kaby Lake that affect these products. Sure, the memory controller is probably tweaked somewhat, but not enough that Intel has announced anything related to it. There are no new power states or other features changing PSU compatibility. And it uses the same socket as before.

Again, how is this news? Sorry, Tom's, but I expect more from you than regurgitating press releases.

While the launch of this is news, I don't think kaby lake is news worthy at all. Nothing interesting here, and as such there will be less views anyway to all kabylake related aticles.

Shhhh!

Don't say this so loud or the cutting edge community may hear you. Although there is little to no improvement those with too much money on their hands will still upgrade their Skylake builds lol.


But you re right, nothing have changed that required new PSUs or AIO coolers. RAM, maybe that is needed for the DDR4 2400 potential but everything else stayed the same.

As for me I'm sticking with my Ivy Bridge 3770K build until 2020.

The launch of what? Corsair is announcing that their current products are compatible with Kaby Lake. Nothing new. Nothing even remotely surprising. DDR4 is still DDR4, PCs still run on DC power (as detailed by the ATX spec), and surprisingly enough, coolers that previously fit LGA1151 still fit LGA1151. Shocking!


Absolutely true. Hopefully Ryzen will at least inject some competition back into the CPU market, although I have a feeling single core X86 performance isn't going to improve radically until graphene or some other silicon replacement shows up. I'm still interested in a KBL upgrade, but then I'm still using my 2008-era Core2Quad. It's about time.
