Oh look, a huge Coffee Lake leak on the eve of AMD's big launch of Ryzen Threadripper, what a surprise. Intel is kicking up its Core i7-8700K to a 6C/12T design, shifting away from the Core i7-7700K and its 4C/8T power.

There are some benchmarks of the purported Core i7-8700K, with a CPU-Z benchmark result of 2323 for single-thread performance, and a multi-threaded score of 13,980. This is a big increase from the 4443 on the 7700K, but is achieved from the higher CPU core count (4C/8T vs 6C/12T).

Intel will be clocking the Core i7-8700K at up to 4.7GHz on maximum single-core CPU clocks, while it'll hit 4.6GHz on dual-core, 4.4GHz on quad-core, and 4.3GHz on hexa-core. It'll support dual-channel DDR4, feature a 95W TDP, and integrated graphics.

 

The new 8700K will be joined by the 8700, with slightly lowered CPU clocks of 4.6/4.5/4.3/4.3GHz for single/dual/quad/hexa-core CPU clocks, respectively. The Core i7-8700 will feature a lowered 3.2GHz base frequency compared to the 8700K and its 3.7GHz base frequency, as well as a lowered TDP of just 65W. As with every non-K processor from Intel, the Core i7-8700 won't be overclockable.

 

Intel's new Coffee Lake CPUs will be launching in Q3 2017, with the flagship Core i7-8700K to come in at around $349.
