The Core i7-8700K Geekbench shows that the single-core performance is same as the current-gen Core i7-7700K, but CPU delivers higher multi-core performance thanks to two additional cores.
The 6-core 8700K even matches the performance of AMD Ryzen 7 1800X CPU in multi-core tests, which is impressive considering the latter boasts 8 cores and 16 threads. This indicates Intel has achieved some decent IPC gains with Coffee Lake.
Intel Core i7-8700K has 6 cores and 12 threads clocked at 3.8GHz base, 4.7GHz maximum Turbo and 4.3GHz all-core boost. It also features an unlocked multiplier to make overclocking easier. A previous screenshot shows the CPU can overclock to 5.0GHz.
Furthermore, the chip will pack 12 MB of L3 cache along with a GT2 tier iGPU. The TDP is rated at 95W.
Intel 8th Gen desktop processors are rumored to launch on October 5th. The platform will include integrated USB 3.1 Gen 2, as well as support for dual channel DDR4-2666 MHz memory, and up to 24 PCI-E 3.0 lanes. You will also require Intel’s brand-new 300 series motherboards to run the chips.
The Coffee Lake prices have just been spotted in Germany. The pricing model in the EU tends to differ quite a bit from the Canadian prices we spotted earlier, due to taxes and exchange rates.
