Latest Specs and Clock Speed of Intel’s new Coffee Lake based Core i7-8700K and i5-8600K processor have been leaked. These specifications lists confirm that the Intel will be shipping an entire range of Coffee Lake chips with much higher clock speeds compared to Kaby Lake.
Intel Coffee Lake Core i7-8700K and Core i5-8600K Specifications Leaked – Hexa Cores Boost Up To 4.3 GHz
The Intel’s Coffee Lake 8th Generation Core processors are expected to launch in Gamescom next month. These new chips will be featuring 14nm processes along with a range of other enhancements.
By far the biggest change in these processors is going to feature an increase in core count. The Core i7 and Core i5 series will be first to utilize full-on 6 core design instead of 4 core quads.
The leaked lineup includes four chips so far, which are Core i7-8700K, Core i7-8700, Core i5-8600K and the Core i5-8400.
The Core i7-8700K and Core i5-8600K use fully unlocked design best for overclockers. The Core i7-8700 will act as flagship chip of Coffee Lake’s 8th Generation Desktop lineup. Complete specifications of processors are listed below:

Intel Core i7-8700K – The Coffee Lake Flagship With 6 Cores and 4.3 GHz Boost Across All Cores
Core i7-8700K will be flagship processor of next lineup desktops. It will feature 6 cores and 12 threads. The chip will have compatibility with LGA 1151 socket and rumors are that board makers will extend support of Coffee Lake on 200-series and even 100-series platforms. It will be the first chip with hexa cores by Intel.
In terms of clock speeds, we are looking at a 3.7 GHz base frequency which boasts up to 4.3 GHz (6 core), 4.4 GHz (4 core), 4.6 GHz (2 core) and 4.7 GHz (1 core). These clocks are really impressive so we can expect much faster gaming performance on Coffee Lake parts than the current generation of CPUs. The chip is fully unlocked allowing for overclocking and comes with a TDP of 95W. There’s 12 MB of L3 cache on board along with a GT2 tier iGPU. The chip supports DDR4-2666 MHz memory (native) and up to 4400 MHz+ (OC). We can expect the Core i7-8700K to cost around $349 US when it launches in Q3 2017.
