Overclockers UK staff reveals i7-8086K pre-order date and estimated pricing

A member of Overclockers UK staff called Gibbo has unveiled the pre-order date and price bracket of Intel's long rumoured i7-8086K processor, a chip that was designed to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Intel's iconic 8086 CPU. This confirmation came as a response to the retailers who advertised the processor before Intel's NDA lifted. 

Gibbo stated that pre-orders for Intel's i7-8086 would go live on June 8th, 40 years after the 8086's release in 1978. The processor is also said to sell for under £400, which is not too far away from the i7 8700K's retail price of £329.99.  

Recent rumours have suggested that the processor will offer a base clock speed of 4GHz and a Boost clock speed of 5.0-5.1GHz, with Intel being expected to unveil the CPU at their Computex keynote on June 5th. 

Later in his pst, Gibbo confirmed that Overclockers UK planned to create "8-Pack" variants of Intel's i7-8086 processor, replacing Intel's IHS with a silver/copper variant and a high-performance thermal interface to offer lower thermals. Overclockers UK also plans to pre-bin these CPUs to provide users with guaranteed high overclocker (at a premium price). This service implies that Intel's new i7-8086 processor will not be soldered.

It seems increasingly likely that Intel will reveal this new processor at Computex 2018, with their June 5th keynote being an ideal launch event. This reveal time would give enough time for hardware enthusiasts to learn about the new processor before its reported June 8th pre-order date.

"8086" when do we get the 8088 again? Seems we've come full circle on the naming scheme. Quote

8 Pack version of a processor that is most likely binned already? Doesn't make sense to me Quote

"I've got 1000 units. Price will be under £400"

So £399 then. Cheers, Gibbo The Gouger.

Nope. That is the thing with Gibbo, he is very crafty and knows how to manipulate words. That is probably why he owns a Porsche. Let me explain it for you.

Retail CPUs are not binned. Not at all. Why? because if OCUK open the item it is no longer new, and then against EU law to sell as new. Meaning they take a massive hit, just to open an easter egg.

Binned CPUs are OEM tray CPUs. TBH? they should not be selling those either, as the law states that OEM PC products must be a part of a computer. BITD? we used to sell them at our shop, but, we had the stipulation that they must buy a storage device with it to make it more legal. So that was a floppy drive. We sold loads, they probably all went in the bin. But that was our way of bending the rules.

So basically tray CPUs should be going into pre built PCs and nothing else. But they are not. That website that bins? they take brand new retail CPUs, open them, bin them and then put them in a price bracket.

However, Gibbo is not saying that a pre binned 8 pack CPU is less than £400. He is saying the retail ones are, and that means total lottery and your risk.Quote

8 Pack does some good parts when binned.

He does a 7980XE binned to 4.6ghz which is already impressive for a CPU with that many cores, in practice the same CPU will actually get up to 4.8 or 4.9ghz.Quote

I mean, that Intel probably bins them. Only the best 8700s become 8086 to insure 5GHz. And therefore the idea of getting an 8pack version doesn't make that much sense. As you pay extra on an already Intel binned CPU.Quote
