Benchmark results for Intel's upcoming i7 8700K have appeared on Geekbench's online database, revealing some impressive benchmark scores when combined with an EVGA Z370 motherboard. 
 
Looking at the single-threaded performance of this CPU we can see results that are similar to Intel's existing i7 7700K, which makes sense given the architectural similarities between Kaby Lake and Coffee Lake. In effect, Coffee Lake is simply a Kaby Lake CPU that has been designed with more cores in mind, offering no real IPC increase to speak of. This means that Intel has effectively been using their Skylake CPU architecture for three CPU generations, offering higher clock speeds with Kaby Lake and more cores with Coffee Lake. 
 
Moving to this CPU's multi-threaded results we see Coffee Lake take a huge lead over the i7 7700K, which is expected given Coffee Lake's two additional CPU cores and 4 additional threads.

rumors place it closer to 420 euro.

intel is finally offering me what i expected for kaby lake... 6 cores.
klaby lake was a complete disappointment in my opinion.
