The Chinese enthusiasts from community HKEPC shared a photo of the Intel processor Core i7-8700K with the removed heatdistributive cover. We will mark that existence of thermopaste under a cover of Coffee Lake processors already long time is not a secret and completely to realize the frequency potential of new CPU it is necessary to resort to “scalping”.
The crystal of new 6-core processor on width is comparable with the tetracyclic Intel Core i7-7700K chip, but at the same time it was noticeably more long. The area of a silicon crystal of Core i7-8700K, by approximate estimates, is about 151 mm² that on 29 mm² it is more, than at the predecessor.
Besides, as edition of the VideoCardz portal reports, since tomorrow on the Network reviews preferentially of Inel Core i7-8700K and Core i5-8400 processors as samples of these chips were delivered the majority of foreign web issuings will be available. At the same time high 6-core processor, according to the first messages from observers, without special problems will be able to subdue a mark of 5 GHz when using air supercoolers or the systems of liquid cooling.
