Intel Core i7-8086K recently popped up online as the 40th-anniversary edition. While Intel hasn’t confirmed it yet but listings for the Intel Core i7-8086K Anniversary Edition has appeared online suggesting that the processor will be out for its 40th anniversary.
June 8 marks the 40th anniversary of Intel’s most famous processor, the 8086. If the listing and leaks are to be believed then the Intel Core i7-8086K Anniversary Edition will launch as part of the 8th gen Coffee Lake series.
According to listings, this particular processor will cost $70 more compared to the Intel Core i7-8700K which will make the price for the CPU around $480.
According to a recent leak, the processor is believed to have a base clock of 4 GHz and a boost clock of 5 GHz. While the boost clock will reportedly be 5 GHz but as the name suggests, the i7-8086K will be an unlocked CPU meaning users will be able to overclock it.
However, we doubt that there will be plenty of headroom keeping in mind that this is based on the same process and the architecture as the 8700K.
Speaking of leaked Intel processors, Intel has delayed its 10 nm CPUs till 2019, however, a 10 nm Intel Cannonlake CPU has leaked online. The leaked CPU is part of the Intel Cannonlake Y family. The Intel M3-8114Y runs at a base clock of 2.2 GHz which compared to previous M3 CPU is better as it had 1.1 GHz of base clock.
However, the boost clock isn’t mentioned but given that 7th gen M3 CPU bosted up to 3 GHz, we are hopeful that the Intel M3-8114Y will feature a boost clock slightly higher than that.
Furthermore, this isn’t the only 10 nm Cannonlake CPU to emerge as 10 nm Cannonlake i3-8121U emerged inside Lenovo Ideapad 330 Notebook.
