Source has released a leak in which we can see CPU-Z performance of the Intel Core i7 8700K, a processor that as we know uses the Coffee Lake architecture and will have six physical cores and twelve threads thanks to Hyperthreading technology.
Its working frequency according to the latest rumors will be of 3.7 GHz in base mode and 4.3 GHz in turbo mode, figures that are below the 4.2 GHz-4.5 GHz of Core i7 7700K that commercializes Intel at the moment, Although unlike the first it only has four physical cores and eight threads.
As indicated by the distinctive “K” we are faced with a model that will have the multiplier unlocked, which means that we can overclock easily if accompanied by a motherboard with chipset Z370.
In general the performance it achieves is a clear improvement in multi-core performance compared to the current generation, but the difference in mononuclear performance is quite small. This seems to indicate that Coffee Lake will make the difference thanks to the movement of nuclei that will be in practically all the ranges.
We say this because as we have discussed in previous articles the new generation of processors Coffee Lake will be configured as follows:
- Core i7: six cores and twelve threads.
- Core i5: six cores and six threads.
- Core i3: four cores and four threads (do not discard a special model with eight threads).
- Pentium: two cores and four threads.
- Celeron: two cores and two threads.
Before finishing we accompany a screenshot so that you can compare with the Intel Core i7 8700K; In it appears the performance in CPU-Z of a RYZEN 7 1800X to 4.025 MHz and of a Core i7 6950X to frequencies of stock. The first has 8 cores and 16 threads and the second 10 cores and 20 threads.
