Intel is ready to launch its much anticipated revamped 8086 generation in the form of 8086K on the completion of 40 years of 8086. For the millennials, 8086 isn’t a new term as these processors used to be as cool as today’s 8th gen chips back in the 80’s. The all-new Core i7-8086K is going to be the modern face of Intel’s processors’ lineup!
Being an Anniversary Edition SKU, it is going to be an extra-ordinary chip and the reports show that it will sport a 6 core/12 thread structure!
Based on rumors, here’s what we know of the upcoming chip:
- A 12MB of L3 cache
- A 95W TDP
- A base clock speed of 4GHz and a boost clock of up to 5.1GHz (or more)
Still consider the 8700K as a powerful processor? Intel Core i7-8086K all the way!
