Appeared the first test results of the Intel Core i7-8700K
According to preliminary data, the Core i7-8700K will get six cores, operating at frequencies of 3.7-4.7 GHz. That should give him a significant advantage over its predecessor in applications optimized for multithreading.
The first tests appeared on the Network, was held in 3DMark. Not the best option for evaluating the performance of the processor, but it can give some information.
So for us, the interesting Physics result Score. Here the novelty is gaining a little more than 14 000 points. How much gain Core i7-7700K and other relevant CPU, you can see in the screenshot below.
However, you need to understand that the systems are not identical and the different settings make adjustments to the result. In General, we can see that the new flagship Core i7 is ahead of the old by about 12-13%. In this case specifically in this test, he passes and Ryzen 7 1700X.
But, as we have said, 3DMark is not the best test to evaluate the performance of the CPU. In any case, wait for a full test very soon as the new Intel will be announced on August 21, and probably soon after the announcement goes on sale.
By the way, these tests were performed on the motherboard Supermicro C7Z370-CG-L, based on the new Intel Z370.
