The launch of the new Intel’s Core 9000 series is yet to be confirmed because NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement) is set to be October. Even many retailers do not put the new series on their plan list for September. However, it is well-known, that it is easy to get a new engineering CPU sample in China. The Chinese website, CPU.ZOL now promulgates the latest leak of two screenshots from Core i7-9700K benchmarking session.
ASRock’s Z370 Professional Gaming i7 motherboard was used to test the water-cooled processor. The Core i7-9700k currently seconds the Core i9-9900k of the two 8-core processors in Coffee Lake Refresh Lineup. Both have their SKUs soldered, but the i7-9700k lacks Hyperthreading support.
The SKU mates the need for the 200 points that places Ryzen 7 2700X territory above Core i7-8700K because of the new CPU in the multi- and single-threaded test reached 1827 and 250 points respectively. Some reviewers of the OC3D claim that the performance of the single-thread does not meet their expectation, as they believe the Z390 motherboard should achieve the expected score.
