Intel’s Core i7-9700K Appears On Geekbench – 8 Cores, No HT & Up To 4.9GHz Max Frequency

The PC gaming community is awaiting for Intel to announce their next generation of CPUs. Ever since the first leaks made their way onto the internet, a ton of reports have suggested that the next-gen Core i7 processors would lack hyperthreading.

To assure those leaks, it seems like a new benchmark has appeared on Geekbench assuring the leaks. According to a result uploaded to the Geekbench database, it seems like the Core i7 9700k would indeed lack hyperthreading. In addition to that, the CPU is said to pack a base frequency of 3.6GHz and a max turbo frequency of 4.9GHz.  As speculated and reported by other publications, yet again, we’re looking at an LGA 1151 socket. Kudos to the folks over at VideoCardz.Intel-Core-i7-9700K-Geekbench-Leak

Additional details that we could pull from the test include the fact that the CPU was benched on a Gigabyte Z370 AORUS ULTRA GAMING 2.0 and would pack 12MB of L3 cache.

Thus far, benchmarks aren’t much of an upgrade over Kaby Lake. However, given how Intel has been acting lately after AMD made a comeback, I wouldn’t hate if these CPUs actually come with hyperthreading. Its just a shame that we won’t be able to see an i7 without Hyperthreading.
