The new 8700K engineering sample clocks in higher than previous leaks, with a base clock of 3.5GHz and a maximum multiplier of 43, hinting at a huge 4.3GHz boost clock. For a 6C/12T processor at 4.3GHz, we could be in for quite the beast in the 12-thread processor game. AMD's current Ryzen 5 1600X processor clocking in at 4GHz under XFR, 300MHz shy of Intel's upcoming Core i7-8700K.
