GeekBench got hold of spec and performance information on a mysterious 6-core Coffee Lake mobile CPU. It's default clock is set to 2.6 GHz, but it can boost to 4.0 GHz. The gen 8 model seems to have the same single-core performance as the 7th gen i7-7700HQ. However, the multi-core tests show a 40% performance gain over the gen 7 CPU.

Intel’s 8th generation ultra-low voltage CPUs really impressed with their multi-core performance over the last gen, but what about the non-ULV CPUs? Even though Intel has not revealed any official information about the soon to be released non-ULV mobile chips, the people over at GeekBench somehow got their hands on some specs and benchmarks for a 6-core Coffee Lake mobile CPU.

The mysterious Core i7 mobile CPU features 6 cores and 12 threads and 9 MB of L3 cache memory. The default frequency is set to 2.6 GHz, since this is a mobile CPU and it still needs to keep the TDP as low as possible. The Turbo frequency can go up to 4.0 GHz, though.

Analyzing the benchmark results, the single-core 4013 score seems to be on par with the 7th gen i7-7700HQ and the new gen 8 i7-8550U ULV mobile CPUs. This could be due to the low default frequency of all the gen 8 CPUs. However, when more cores are activated, the new 6-core CPU scores 19129 points, around 40% faster than the i7-7700HQ. The added performance boost may benefit creative professionals working with advanced image and video editing programs, but gamers will probably not feel much of a difference, since most of the current games lack the proper multi-core coding.

I first stepped into the wondrous IT&C world when I was around seven years old. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, whether they were from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I'm also an avid reader of science fiction, an astrophysics aficionado, and a crypto geek. I started writing PC-related articles for Softpedia and a few blogs back in 2006. I joined the Notebookcheck team in the summer of 2017 and am currently a senior tech writer mostly covering processor, GPU, and laptop news.
