Intel’s new Coffee Lake CPU has been listed by retailers.
Intel Core i7-8086K (BX80684I78086K)
June 8th marks 40 years since the introduction of Intel’s most famous processor — the 8086. The 8th Gen Core series launched last year are the perfect opportunity to celebrate this occasion with a special edition named Core i7-8086K.
Some retailers have already started listing the new SKU on their websites, indicating 70 USD/EUR premium over i7-8700K (~480/470 EUR).
Not much is known at this point, but the CPU is rumored to be 5.0 GHz chip out of the box. It is, however, still expected to be a 6-core SKU.
On June 5th Intel is hosting a keynote where new processor could be unveiled. It is worth noting that Chinese retailers have listed Core i7-8086K for quite some time now, but only now Canadian, Russian and Italian retailers have started doing the same. In fact, Italian listing was already taken down, so it is hard to say if those are just placeholders or something is afoot.
