As Intel’s 8th generation Core “Coffee Lake” processors coming closer to its 5th October launch, more leaks are coming out as early access to the retail chips are putting them through benchmarks. One such benchmark scores spotted on Geekbench database. A Core i7-8700K six-core chip is running on an EVGA-Z370 chipset-based motherboard (model code: 121-KS-E375).

The Core i7-8700K was running at its standard (out of the box) clock speeds, and able to achieve a score of 5,773 points in the single-threaded bench, which is much higher than the 4,500 range scores of the Ryzen 7 1800X. In the multithreaded bench, Core i7-8700K scored 24,260 points, which is lower than the 27,500+ points average scores of Ryzen 7 1800X, though we have to remember 1800X has two extra cores compared to the i7-8700K.
