Coffee Lake - what to expect?

Next month I'll start saving money to buy a new desktop machine - the budget will be more or less $1500 to $1700.

We don't have crystal balls, obviously. But I was wondering - is the coffee lake architecture still aimed at mainstream users (I've read somewhere that it supports up to 6 cores). It's still almost a year away.

On AMD's side - by that point, they will probably release II gen Ryzens.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
