    An alleged Intel processor which goes by the name of Core i7-8086K has just popped up and been tested by a member of a Chinese forum. The sample which is named after the Intel 8086 microprocessor is said to mark the 40th anniversary of Intel’s iconic CPU and would be a really fast design from the looks of it.

    Alleged Intel Core i7-8086K CPU Shows Up – Named after Intel’s 8086 CPU, 40th Anniversary SKU Incoming?
    First of all, this wouldn’t be the first time Intel is doing an anniversary edition SKU. They have done so with the Pentium G3258 which marked the 20th anniversary of the Pentium processors. Today, we are looking at what might become another anniversary edition SKU, this time marking 40 years since the iconic Intel 8086 microprocessor.

    Alright so moving on to the specifications, the Core i7-8086K has similar core configuration as the Core i7-8700K. It features 6 cores, 12 threads and 12 MB of L3 cache. The TDP is maintained at 95 Watts which is the same as the Core i7-8700K. The clock speeds are currently the fastest for an Intel 6 core processor. We are looking at a base clock of 4.00 GHz which boosts all the way up to 5.1 GHz. The 5.1 GHz boost clock is single-core and all core boost is rated at 4.4 GHz but mostly stable at 4.3 GHz unless provided proper cooling.

    The temperatures show that under a Cooler Master T400i air cooler, the chip performs around 70C but when all cores are overclocked to 5.0 GHz, the temperature instantly spikes above 95C and almost ends up near the 100C wall. So you’d have to provide some beefy cooling to keep this thing cooled. However, if cooling is there, overclocking on the chip is a breeze and said sample can do 5.1 GHz with literally no effort.

    Will these basically be the best of the i7 8700k chips being produced and sold at a premium? Does that mean these are essentially "factory overclocked" golden silicon chips? Or do you think they will still have some wiggle room for enthusiast overclockers to push them higher?

    probably a mix of both: highly binned 8700K chips with some wiggle room left for additional OC :) knowing intel, they will make sure to leave enough headroom for stability purposes.

    Anyone else wonder if this is an attempted dump on AMD's imminent Zen 2 release?

    All signs point to this being real then. A binned 8700K, which hopefully has even further overclocking headroom into the 5Ghz range.
