Intel recently celebrated 20 years of the Pentium brand that made the company a household name, with a special Pentium 20th Anniversary Edition G3258 SKU. If rumors are to be believed, the company could do something similar with the upcoming 40th anniversary of its 8086 processor, the distant ancestor of today's x86 architecture. Some sources even suggest that the company could take advantage of its 8th generation Core product cycle to launch a "Core i7-8086K" SKU.

Pictures surfaced on social media of the said "i7-8086K" SKU in the flesh, complete with a part number "SR3QQ." Based on the same 14 nm "Coffee Lake" silicon as the i7-8700K, this chip has a nominal clock speed of 4.00 GHz, a maximum Turbo Boost frequency above 5.00 GHz, an unlocked multiplier, and 12 MB of shared L3 cache. Intel could choose June 8th (around the 2018 Computex and the actual anniversary of 8086), to launch the new SKU.

Why not make it even bigger by soldering the freaking thing.
But seeing the temperatures in that screenshot, doesn't look like that will be the case.

Basically a cherry picked 8700K to milk the diehard Intel fans. Zero effort for maximum profits.

But he 8086 was 5 to 10MHz, so this one should be 5GHz to...nevermind.
So next year we're having the 8088K? :D

or it's a product that is there for celebration ?
8700K is already a good product and if silicone lottery exists it should be a good market for pre binned cpu's ?
I see nothing wrong :)

So you're happy that Intel sells an existing chip to you for an extra couple of hundreds of dollars by just slapping a fancy celebration logo/model number on it?

There were somewhere known price for this, or?

If they price it similarly as G3258 were against other pentiums, there won't be price premium on it.

.....some will never be satisfied........the G3258 was such a fun chip though, got and built several systems with them. Only paid like $50 bucks for it ...overclocked like crazy...believe i killed a board with one but the chip still survived. If they can recapture that....definitely got a sale from me.

I am since im not going to buy it. You should'nt either if you dont think its worth your money. The market is not a safespace against shitty deals; let your wallet talk, and buy what makes sense to you. Just remember that 'what makes sense to you' does not necessary allign with others priorities. :) So let the CPU release and if people wanna buy it so be it. But yes this seems to be a prebinned 8700K os intel is just cutting out the middelman (casekings.de etc.)

If you don't like it don't buy it. I think it is cool they commemorate old tech.

Nvidia needs to do it for g92 that's the reason they still exist.

6C? so 11 years past, we are still not getting 8C...
Why does that matter the majority of software can't use 8 cores.

Don't be one of those people just obessed with specs and big numbers like the Andriod phone crowd.

That’s sad, my phone has 8 cores but intel mainstream hasn’t caught on yet.
