The Intel Core i7 8086K is a processor to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the 8086 chip. It has a slightly higher clock speed than the i7 8700K, but after scalping and using the LN2, you can get much more from it.
The well-known overclocker Der8auer overclocked this processor to 7.24 GHz. This makes the new Intel unit the fastest 6-core processor that the company has on offer, while still being very similar to the 8700K – the same number of cores, threads, cache, or the same TDP. But back to the tweak. This result was achieved at a temperature of -185 ° C with a clock speed of 1.85 V.
The 8086K will run at 4 GHz (5 GHz in turbo mode) out of the box. So it’s nice to know that there’s extra power in it. The processor is slated to go on sale June 8, for a price of $ 429.
