Intel Core i7-8700K and Core i5-8600K Benchmarks Surfaced Ahead of Release Date

Intel recently announced their new desktop processors for the mainstream users, the 8th Gen Coffee Lake S Core i7, i5 and i3. The official release date of these new CPUs, together with the Z370 motherboards, is on October 5. But ahead of launch date and review embargo, two sites (Expreview and PCOnline) already “leaked” the performance benchmarks of the Core i7-8700K and Core i5-8600K. The performance benchmark is almost full in details that it’s like a full review already (less the proper wording or explanations). Anyway, based on these leaked benchmarks, the Core i7-8700K offers faster performance compared to its predecessor, the i7-7700K, specially on multi-threaded performance. It also offers improvements and added a few more frames per second when it comes to gaming. Check out the leak benchmark results below. The numbers should speak for themselves.

Looks like, the Core i7-8700K and Core i5-8600K does offer some improvements over their predecessors. Their power consumption and temperature also increased, but this is expected considering that there are more cores/threads in the CPU compared to the previous generation. I’m sure soon we will see comparison between the new 8th Gen Coffee Lake CPUs and AMD’s Ryzen 7,5,3 CPUs. I don’t expect Ryzen to beat Intel’s new CPU when it comes to gaming, but let’s see how it fares when it comes to productivity and other multi-threaded applications.

I love computers since I was a kid. I’m always fascinated with new technology, especially in the PC world. Many years ago, I was curious if the reviews I read were true and real. So, why not test them myself and share my first-hand experience? And thus, here we are. Thanks for reading!
