Intel Core i7-8086K, an alleged Intel processor, gets leaked and is tested by a member of a Chinese forum. The alleged Intel processor is named after the Intel 8086 microprocessor to mark the 40th anniversary of Intel’s iconic CPU.

This is not the first time that Intel is doing an anniversary edition SKU. The Pentium G3258 marked the 20th anniversary of the Pentium processors. Thus, we are eagerly waiting for another anniversary edition SKU, and this time it will be marking its 40th year anniversary since the iconic Intel 8086 microprocessor.

To talk about its specs, the Core i7-8086K has a similar core configuration as the Core i7-8700K, featuring 6 cores, 12 threads, and 12 MB of L3 cache. The TDP is the same as the Core i7-8700K, which is maintained at 95 Watts. The base clock of 4.00 GHz will boost up to 5.1 GHz. All core boost is rated at 4.4 GHz but mostly stable at 4.3 GHz unless provided proper cooling.

The temperature showcases that the chip performs around 70C under a Cooler Master T400i air cooler, but when all cores are speeded to 5.0 GHz, the temperature instantly rises above 95C and almost strikes the 100C wall. So the temperature needs to be maintained and kept cool so that the sample can do a 5.1 GHz with literally no effort.

During its early sample tests, the chip provided a relatively ignorable difference in single-core performance over the Core i7-7700K but eventually crushed it in multi-core tests due to 4 more threads. This alleged processor might be the fastest 6-core option available in the market, launching around June this year, marking the 40th anniversary of the 8086 microprocessor.
