Official specs of Intel Coffee Lake 8700K desktop CPU is out, which is a 6 core processor on the mainstream for Intel upcoming platform. A few days ago we did tackle another rumor from Videocardz, they managed to grab hold of CPU-Z image which revealed some information from an early engineering sample including but not limited to confirmation.
We are seeing 6-cores, 12 threads, the amount of Cache, the Bus speed, the core clock of the engineering sample and a Coffee-Lake with an 1151 socket. Another website Wccftech have managed to grab another image which shows the full clock speed of the processors.
The base frequency is 3.7 ghz and we are going to be looking at a boost clock of 4.3 ghz for a Single-core, Dual-core mode will be at 0.2 and Hexa-core at 4.0 ghz, which is not bad considering the sheer numbers of cores here.
We are looking here at the inclusion of graphics core minimum clock speed of just 350 mhz and it does appear to have 95 watt TDP incompatible LGA 1151. The problem is we are not sure whether it’s going to be backward compatible.
