    Phoronix: Intel Core i7 8086K Linux Performance

    Intel announced the limited edition Core i7 8086K processor in June to celebrate 40 years since the introduction of the original 8086 processor that ushered in the x86 architecture. The Core i7 8086K is now widely available albeit with an apparent limited time available. This celebratory CPU is built off Intel's existing Coffeelake CPU micro-architecture but with an elevated CPU base frequency and a turbo frequency that tops out at 5.0GHz to make it the company's highest-performing mainstream desktop CPU to date.

      Is that supposed to be 2700X?

          odd focusing of the camera, that is an LED from one of the PWR LEDs on one of the rackmounted systems across the room.

              Damn, I'd love this CPU, but I'm a fanless enthusiast so no go unless they also release an 8086T too

                Underclock it?

                  The benchmarks tell me there is no reason for anyone to consider this cpu. It's a premium priced fanboy part, with little real world value.

                    The 8086K is a bit of a joke (a pretty expensive one). At first glance, it looks nice, 4 GHz base and 5 GHz turbo frequency instead of 3,7 and 4,7. But the 5 GHz are only for one core loaded and all the others idle, and the 2 to 6 core turbo is the same as on the 8700K, making the base clock increase pointless as well.
