As we get closer to the October 5th launch of Intel’s 8th Generation Core “Coffee Lake” processors many people who have access to these chips are putting them through the paces. Once such retail sample has made its way into the Geekbench database, it is the Core i7-8700K six-core chip running on an EVGA Z370 chipset-based motherboard.
With its out of the box clock speeds the Core i7-8700K scored 5773 points in the single-threaded test, which is higher than the 4900-ish scores you’ll get with a Ryzen 7 1800X chip. In the multi-threaded test it scored 24260 points, which puts it below the Ryzen 7 1800X, which typically scores around 28000-ish. This is of course because the 1800X packs in two extra cores compared to the i7-8700K.
