Intel supplies business partners with new info on the 8th gen desktop CPUs

And Intel partner briefing held in China has revealed that the performance gains between the 7th gen and 8th gen CPUs are due to the increased number of cores and enlarged L3 memory caches. The i7 CPUs will feature 6 cores and 12 threads with 12 MB L3, the i5 CPUs will come with 6 cores and 6 threads with 9 MB L3, and the entry-level i3 processors will only integrate 4 cores and 4 threads with 6 MB L3.

Although rumors and leaks about the 8th generation desktop CPUs have been circulating around for some weeks now, Intel kept quiet and did not release any official information on the upcoming chips. However, it looks like Intel does inform their business customers on future processors beforehand, as the Chinese site Chiphell has recently leaked an image taken at an Intel partner briefing event. The image presents the performance gains between the 7th gen and 8th gen CPUs, but it seems like the only improvements are the increased number of cores and enlarged memory caches. A closer look also reveals that Intel has tweaked the performance/watt ratios in order to keep the power consumption of all unlocked CPU versions (the ones marked with the K suffix) under 100 W.

Chiphell informs that the 8th gen i7 CPUs will feature 6 cores and 12 threads. The i7-8700K will have a 95 W TDP and it will be clocked at 3.8 GHz by default, but the turbo clocks have not been revealed. The i7-8700 will come with a 65 W TDP and locked multipliers, but there’s no info about frequencies. Both CPUs have L3 caches set at 12 MB.

Next up are 2 new i5 CPUs that integrate 6 cores and 6 threads. The i5-8600K will have a 95 W TDP, while the locked 8600 version will come with base clocks set at 2.8 GHz and a 65 W TDP. Both CPUs have L3 caches set at 9 MB.

The entry-level i3 CPUs will feature only 4 cores and 4 threads and will integrate 6 MB L3 caches.  The i3-8350K model will be clocked at 4.0 GHz with a 95 W TDP, while the i3-8100 model will be clocked at 3.8 GHz with a 65 W TDP.

Intel has yet to release information on boost frequencies, the integrated GPU solutions, availability and prices for the 8th gen desktop CPUs.

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.
