Early Intel Core i7-8700K Benchmarks Leaked, Barely Beats Ryzen 5 1600

The 8th-generation Intel Coffee-Lake processors are going to be the comeback of Intel in the global processor market. However, these very first benchmarks of the 8th-gen Intel Core i7-8700K show a different story. With 6 cores and 12 threads, many fans expect that Intel’s high-end consumer Coffee-Lake chip should be better equivalently priced AMD Ryzen chips. The leaked benchmarks suggest something else, though.

Karl Morin, a Canadian journalist, happened to find an HP Omen desktop PC with an Intel Core i7-8700K processor inside. He ran some benchmarks, including CPU-Z and Cinebench. The images are straight from Karl Morin’s Facebook livestream yesterday, that’s why the quality isn’t so good. Anyways, take a look:

As you can see in the benchmarks above, the Core i7-8700K barely beats AMD’s $230 six-core Ryzen 5 1600 at 1230 points versus 1130 points of the Ryzen. It’s nowhere close to the Ryzen 7 1700, which can score more than 1700 points in Cinebench R15 when overclocked (our Ryzen 1700 @ 4GHz scores 1720 points).

Another benchmark of the i7-8700K also got leaked, the source of which is Geekbench.

Paired with an EVGA Z370 motherboard, the i7-8700K scores 5773 points in single-core and 24260 points in multi-core. The single-core results are very close to the current generation i7-7700K, however, the multi-core results are definitely improved, because of the two extra cores on the 8700K.
