Intel’s rumored 8-core mainstream processor has made yet another appearance at SiSoft Sandra Database.

Intel 8-core processor

Even though it says Kabylake, everyone knows that Coffeelake is basically Kabylake on steroids. The new processor has been tested on KBL S system (which stands for Kabylake S), it basically means we are looking at the same old LGA1151 platform.

The page lists 2.6 GHz 8-core chip with HyperThreading enabled. That’s rather a disappointing frequency for a new gaming chip, but this is likely just a prototype or software error.

Intel’s 8-core chip is expected to hit the stores soon, as the company has already revealed Z390 gaming chipset for new motherboards, which were supposedly designed with those processors in mind.
