|Sweclockers confirms rumour of limited availability for Coffee Lake until 2018:|
"Those who wait for Intel Coffee Lake may have to wait longer than October 5th. According to information obtained by SweClockers, there is a shortage of new processors until after the turn of the year."
Translation and discussion:
PS. The article confirms that motherboard availability is good, though. However, processors may not become widely available until mid-December, with volume in 2018. The source speculates that the effect of moving the launch earlier in time (it was originally scheduled for 1Q 2018), the launch of Coffee Lake now may have an Osborne effect on the Kaby Lake range, and due to poor availability, drive customers to the AMD platform, contrary to the intent of accelerating the launch.
