This is laziness on Intel’s part IMO. If they would’ve released the 8-core CFL as the 8086K, I might have considered selling my 8700K and upgrading. All they apparently did here was take the highest binned 8700K dies and released them as this “new” CPU.It seems really cool to me, kind of a collectible, much like AMD's FX-9000 5Ghz chip. Though more memorable, due to the "8086K" name.
I wanted one, just to be cool like you folks. Then I remembered, that this is only a 6-core, and Intel is coming out with an 8-core CFL soon too.
So I see this chip as more like a more-capable G3258, honestly. It's an "Anniversary Edition", which makes it cool and collectable, but it's already on its way to becoming obsolete.
Pretty much this. If this was called a 8800K (which is what it basically is) no one would bat an eyelid.I'm pretty sure it will, but... how much better?
the 8086K only feels special in name, a small clock bump is not really enough I think...
the G3258 felt more special, since it was the only unlocked pentium and dual core at the time.
"As mentioned, one of the key differences for this test is the motherboard. Back in the office we have used an ASRock Z370 Gaming i7 (P1.70 BIOS) for our Coffee Lake testing, while here we are using an ASRock Z370 Taichi (P1.80 BIOS). Different motherboards, even from the same company, use different methods of controlling the internal frequencies on the board (such as Uncore) or power limits (PL2) which can vary from BIOS to BIOS. It is hard to keep these consistent across systems, so there will be some differences in play."The 8700K and 8086K were apples-to-apples on that same system, it's written in the intro.
