Coffee Lake CPUs prices spotted in Germany

Base clock frequencies revealed

At the moment it seem that there is basically no day passing by where there are no new rumors on Intel’s upcoming Coffee Lake processors. Just a few days ago we’ve last been writing about alleged clock speeds of Intel's upcoming mainstream processors and today there is new information on Guru3D.

The launch of these upcoming chips is definitely one of the more exciting ones. With the eighth-generation of Core processors, Intel is finally bringing six-cores CPUs to the mainstream market. So far Coffee Lake is rumored to be released in October, about nine months after Kaby Lake and the 200-series chipsets had been introduced. The very short life-cycle of Kaby Lake suggests that Intel might be feeling pressure from AMD currently.

Due to a leak from a German e-tailer, there are now some more details available on the base clock frequencies as well as prices regarding the upcoming chips. According to the shop, the Core i7-8700K and Core i5-8600K will come with a base clock frequency of 3.70 GHz and 3.60 GHz respectively. The non-K models will sport a lower base clock, which in the case of the Core i7-8700 is supposed to be set to 3.20 GHz while the Core i5-8400 clocks at 2.80 GHz.

Looking at the prices, we see that Coffee Lake appears to cost more than the current Core i5 and i7 chips. The Core i7-8700K will cost €389 Euro, while the Core i5-8600K will hit €273 Euro. Furthermore it looks like unlocked quad-core Core i3-8350K will set you back €189 Euro.
