Seems that the specifications for this celebratory processor have been seen around and about.

  • 14nm Coffee Lake-S architecture with LGA 1151 socket
  • 6 Cores / 12 Threads
  • Base / Boost of 4.00GHz / 5.10GHz, Unlocked
  • L3 cache size: 12MB
  • On board graphics: UHD630
  • 95W TDP
Product code for the boxed version is BX80684I78086K and the price looks to be around $480, or about $110 more than the 8700K. If you extrapolate the UK cost for CPU using the MSRP for the 8700K, then it shoould be about £360-410 depending on if retailers gouge it.


First CPU to come with over 5.0GHz out of the box, with boost. I wonder if this is soldered not tooth pasted on. :D

Hope OCUK have shifted all their overpriced 8700K de-lid chips before this is out, otherwise they'll be sat doing nothing.

EDIT: Already listed on one UK site with pre-order price of £399.12 with free delivery, includes VAT an will be shipped on the 6th of June.

Some are saying 5ghz... still pretty good if not a record breaker.
I wonder if it really is 95w TDP :p prob miles away once everyone runs there MCE options.

I've been contemplating one of these since they were first rumoured for a new gaming HTPC for my lounge - and I don't know why as it doesn't seem like very good value tbh!

Shame they don't make something actually special for the anniversary CPUs - 6 core / 12 threads is so meh today.

Yeah thats what i thought, 6 core is so ... well its just so so.. i dont care if it can hit 5 bajillion megawabbits its still only playing with a six pack ... and six packs and me dont last long :p

What a great time to release intels 8 core non HEDT chip... that would have been something.. except.. its not ready yet and it wont be hitting 5 megawabbits or what ever.

Nothing special if its just a binned 8700k with the 8c12t chips round the corner.

I don't even think that 8c, and I assume you meant 16t CPU's are anything special anymore. So if they chose to launch it at that specification but a lower clock speed would it have had a great impact?

Going to be a bit weird, if you were in the market for an 8700K, since this removes the appeal, even more so if you weren't really into overclocking and tweaking, as 5.0GHz boost with a decent AIO/Air cooler shouldn't be much of a challenge.
I suppose they could throw a surprise in the box, by including a cooler, maybe an BBB (not RBG this is Intel) with an Intel logo that lights up etc. :p

And the thoughts of Ryzen 2 take a sudden pause.

No, really, most of what I do is limited by 1 thread, and if it isn't, then this 1600X is overkill for it. Hex core with 5.0 boost out the box would really hit the spot.

...if they solder the little fekker. If it's more toothpaste they can take a leap.

Wouldn't mind being surprised by a 240mm AiO in there :D (Mine's getting old, should replace soon...)

Wonder what the default voltage is for 5.1GHz all core then?

They said it's only 5GHz and it's only for single core. Voltage also didn't look good. They didn't believe it could beat the binned 5.2GHz 8700K.
