As if the Intel Coffee Lake Refresh leaks weren’t widespread sufficient, the primary overview of the rumored Intel Core i7-9700Ok has appeared effectively forward of its official announcement.
The very first Intel Core i7-9700Ok overview comes by the use of El Chapuzas Informatico, and it appears to verify all of the rumors we’ve heard to this point. This contains its 14nm structure, Eight-core/Eight-thread format and full lack of hyper-threading, in addition to its most four.9GHz increase clock on single-core (four.6GHz increase throughout all cores).
Extra importantly, the overview allegedly comprises full benchmarks that present a disappointingly small enchancment in efficiency over last-generation chips.
Exams like Cinebench R15 present the 9700Ok performing 300 factors under the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X and simply 50 factors forward of the final era Intel Core i7-8700K. The rumored Espresso Lake Refresh CPU fares higher at gaming benchmarks, like 3DMark Hearth Strike and Time Spy, in addition to Unigine Heaven four.zero, however solely barely so.
By way of gaming, the 9700Ok solely positive aspects as much as 10 frames greater than AMD Ryzen 7 2700X and Intel Core i7-8700Ok in titles like Battlefield 1 and Far Cry 5.
Straightforward to manufacture
Earlier than we take an excessive amount of inventory into this self-proclaimed first official overview, know it’s extremely simple to Photoshop a screenshot of the CPU-Z interface. It’d be youngster’s play to spoof our personal screenshot to say we reviewed the Intel Core i9-10700Ok if we needed to, and the identical goes for the picture of the chip.
Likewise, there’s no strategy to test the validity of those benchmarks, and so they might have been utterly made up with random numbers. We’re additionally a bit skeptical as a result of these benchmark outcomes appear antithetical to the spectacular efficiency we’ve seen from other Intel Core i7-9700K leaks – regardless, we’re skeptical of all benchmark knowledge to this point.
No matter whether or not this overview is to be trusted, you will be assured we’ll have our personal overview within the close to future.
