Intel Coffee Lake Refresh processors have been noticed overclocking everywhere in the net, however now we’re getting a uncommon glimpse of benchmark knowledge exhibiting how the rumored Intel Core i7-9700Ok will carry out.
PCGamesN picked up on the purported Eight-core/Eight-thread processor showing within the Geekbench database full with a 6,297 single-core scores and 30,152 multi-core scores.
Comparatively, the last-generation Intel Core i7-8700K processor achieved 5,508 and 25,034 level leads to the identical respective assessments, whereas the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X carried out gallantly with four,998 single-core and 26,011 multi-core scores.
Now we absolutely anticipated larger single-core efficiency merely by the use of the 9700Ok being rumored to have a 200MHz sooner increase clock than its Espresso Lake predecessor. Nonetheless, the considerably improved multi-core efficiency is unprecedented contemplating this new processor supposedly received’t assist hyper-threading and has 4 fewer threads than the 8700Ok and eight fewer threads than the 2700X.
We initially thought it was odd that one in every of Intel’s flagship processors would lack its trademark hyper-threading function, however maybe Workforce Blue is onto one thing we don’t learn about but. Nonetheless, there’s no possible way to make sure the validity of those scores, so we’re going to include our pleasure with bated breath for now.
Strolling on air
After all, it wouldn’t be a typical week with out us seeing one more Espresso Lake Refresh processor overclocked forward of its official announcement, and this time it’s the 9700Ok as soon as once more.
The Intel Core-i7 9700Ok was supposedly overclocked as much as 5.3GHz, which is 400MHz larger than rumored processor’s four.9GHz increase clock pace, by a author at EXPreview.
Although this rumored CPU has been previously spotted overclocking previous 5.5GHz throughout all eight cores, that is nonetheless a powerful outcome on condition that the chip seems to have solely been air cooled with a tower-style heatsink.
Sadly, there have been no benchmark scores to go together with the acute overclocking, and in any other case the one factor validating this rumor are a few of the most blurry and pixelated pictures we’ve ever seen – so we’re taking this report with an equally excessive grain of salt.
