It looks like rumours and leaks regarding Intel’s upcoming Coffee Lake CPUs are rapidly pouring out recently. One particular rumour that caught our attention is the alleged specifications of three unnamed Coffee Lake CPUs. Interestingly, all of these processors come with six CPU cores – a Coffee Lake feature that we’ve talked about one week ago.
Aside from having six CPU cores, the leaked Coffee Lake CPU specifications also mention that all of them will be based on the LGA1151 socket. The most “powerful” CPU of the three would be first processor that’s listed on the left (refer to table below). This processor, according to Guru3D, may be the Core i7-8700K. A few of its specifications include: base and boost clock speeds of 3.7GHz and up to 4.3GHz respectively; as well as a TDP rating of 95W.
The next Coffee Lake processor listed on the table features clock speeds of 3.2 (base) and up to 3.6GHz (boost). In addition, this CPU also comes with a TDP rating of 95W. Despite not being bestowed with a name for now, we can at least safely assume that this processor will come with the “K” nomenclature – because it’s listed as overclockable.
The other six-core Coffee Lake CPU that was shown on the table comes with base and boost clock speeds of 3.1GHz and up to 4.2GHz respectively. This processor has a TDP rating of 65W and, unfortunately, features no overclocking support. Regardless, do take this leak with a grain of salt for now, folks.
