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.
