Benchmark results for Intel's upcoming i7 8700K have appeared on Geekbench's online database, revealing some impressive benchmark scores when combined with Gigabyte's Z370 Aorus Ultra Gaming motherboard. 


These results appear to be using a stock i5 8600K, offering similar levels of single-threaded performance to Intel's existing i5 7600K, while offering a significant boost to multi-threaded performance. This is expected given the architectural similarities between Kaby Lake and Coffee Lake, with Coffee Lake offering to more cores than the Kaby Lake equivalent. 

In effect, Coffee Lake is simply a Kaby Lake CPU that has been designed with more cores in mind, offering no real IPC increase to speak of. This means that Intel has effectively been using their Skylake CPU architecture for three CPU generations, offering higher clock speeds with Kaby Lake and then more cores with Coffee Lake. 

Please note that these scores are from Geekbench 3, so please don't compare these results to Geekbench 4 benchmarks.

and selling their customers 3 different chipset.. that are practically the same too.

it´s great to have a quasi monopoly i guess.

thank jehova that AMD is competitive again.Quote

TBH if AMD were not competitive it would have been worse. We would be getting another 4c 8t CPU for £330. At least now Intel are finally releasing higher cored CPUs, even if the price is comedic.

Gotta be careful what you say about Intel though. They do everything for a reason, a reason that is not screwing over their loyal fans.Quote
