intel i7 8700K Coffee Lake Intel Core i7 8700K benchmarks leaked; tested on the AMD Radeon RX 480 and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 .

Intel core i7-8700K specs was leaked backed in July with well fascinating results claimed by leaked authorities, specs remains in doubt until its been tested. The recent 3D marked benchmarks will flush away some of performance doubts

Before digging in to benchmark results lets get into Intel core i7-8700K unlocked CPU, in terms of clock speed it features 3.7 GHz base frequency which boosts up to 4.3 GHz (6 core), 4.4 GHz (4 core), 4.6 GHz (2 core) and 4.7 GHz (1 core) along with it it features 12 threads two threads per core.

The 3D marked tests

The Intel Core i7-8700K was tested on a Supermicro SuperO CLZ370-CG-L motherboard. The Intel core I7-8700K was tested with two different graphics card:

Benchmark Results

Intel Core i7 8700K CPU 3DMark 11 GTX 1080 1024x476 Intel Core i7 8700K benchmarks leaked; tested on the AMD Radeon RX 480 and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 .

Intel Core i7 8700K CPU 3DMark 11 RX 480 1024x470 Intel Core i7 8700K benchmarks leaked; tested on the AMD Radeon RX 480 and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 .

The combine results shows the that Intel Core i7-8700K is performing better score in Nvidia GTX 1080 scaling 13832 while securing 12723 with Radeon 480, turning to CPU dependent scores, with 14251 Intel Core i7-8700K is in the lead over AMD Radeon 480 scoring 14021. If we go back into specs claimed we heard that  Intel Core i7-8700K multi-threading is making its more efficient in perfomance than Intel Core i7-7700K, Ryzen 5 1600X with 6 cores and Ryzen 7 1700X with 8 cores. So its sounds a good deal to get this 6 core CPU paying $349 rumored price.
