Intel: 8700K is 11% faster than 7700K

-Intel continues to react to Ryzen, with the first super early tease of Ice Lake which isn’t due until 2019… and now a tease of their upcoming 8th gen Core i7-8700K processor.

-Intel’s upcoming Core i7-8700K is based on the new Coffee Lake architecture, with a leaked slide showing that the new 8700K is just 11% faster than the 7700K in single threaded applications. The new Core i7-8700K will be a 6C/12T part that should compete directly against AMD’s new Ryzen 5 1600X, which is also a 6C/12T part.
