Too Many Damn Lakes! Intel's coming CPU's

Recommended Posts

i7-8086k is showing up for sale... Probably good for collectors and those not wanting to mess with OC but most everyone should get the same from 8700k. If truly higher binned, then might be worth it.

I can't find any info... if say 8700k and 7800x are both running all cores at the same clock like 4.7ghz, if the results for gaming will be the same with 1x gpu? Can you run 7800x with dual channel or do you need quad? Anyone have reviews for the above... I can't find any, everyone here seem great at finding good info... Clock to clock compare for gaming

That I think might be hard to find.

A few days ago we covered the what appeared to be the Threadripper 2990X in all its 32-core glory and there was one part that had been blurred out. Well, the original screenshot has just surfaced (Mobile01 via KOMACHI’s twitter account) and was actually the upcoming Intel 8-Core Coffee Lake-S flagship processor. The Cinebench score of the part was also revealed as a result.

 

Intel’s Coffee Lake-S 8 core / 16 thread mainstream flagship scores 2212 points in leaked Cinebench score (Engineering Sample). Even though the timeline for this leak lines up perfectly what with the AoTS leak and the fact that we originally heard the Z390 refresh platform officially detailed, I would still urge a pinch of salt with this leak considering it comes from an unknown source (Mobile01) and the “Genuine Intel CPU 0000” could potentially correspond to some other SKU entirely.

 

That said, everything considered so far, there is a fairly high chance of this being legitimate – especially considering the fact the leakers bothered to blur out the entry in the original Threadripper 2990X leak. Without any further ado, here is the screenshot in question:

 

Intel-Coffee-Lake-S-8-Core-Flagship-Z390

Komachi also previously spotted the Coffee Lake S 8-core variant in the AoTS database so it’s not entirely surprising that we are seeing more leaks of the same part pop up. In fact, if anything it lends credence to this leak. We aren’t sure of the exact launch date for the processor right now but rumors have pointed to a launch as soon as by the end of the year. Some other rumors pointed to an early 2019 launch date but considering we are already seeing ES variants pop up, this might be sooner rather than later.

 

Intel-Coffee-Lake-S-8-Core-Processor-103

Keep in mind, however, that this is almost certainly an engineering sample and clocks aren’t finalized yet – in fact, this particular ES seems to have a base clock of ~3 GHz which is the same as the one we saw in Ashes of the Singularity benchmark. A score of 2212 is already pretty impressive and this could increase even further depending on how much Intel is able to tweak the CPU.

 

The per-core scaling we are seeing here compared to the Threadripper 2990X also corresponds with what we have seen in the past with Intel have a core-for-core advantage but falling back in the overall numbers department. Threadripper 2nd Gen is going to improve a lot on the clock performance of the platform and Intel will have to compensate in a similar fashion. All we can say right now is that its good to see x86 competition heating up again.

This quite handily bests the Ryzen 2700X with some ease. Especially considering it's an ES, but we kinda expected this right?

I really love the back and forth... Rumors of 2800x is they are waiting for the 8 core Intel release. I read that the z370 might not be compatible and like you have posted, the z390 or something would be needed. Possibly the 2800x will be 10 core since the clocks are not going to be that high.

They can't do a 10... they didn't redesign the arch, just put it on a new process and made some minor tweaks. They could do a 10 core on the X399 platform I suppose but that would put it outside the price bracket of the mainstream.

 

I'm not sure there will be a 2800X in the X470 platform that we know.. and if there is... if it will be any better than the 2700X

 

Zen 2 will have to be the next counterpoint.

AMD are now dumping Gen 1 Threadrippers so they can get ready for the Gen 2 ones. Also means the resale value of Gen 1 threadrippers will be destroyed for those who bought early.
