The Intel Core i7-8700T: Six-core processor with Hyper-Threading!
The Intel Core i7-8700T has a clock frequency of 2.4 GHz, which can increase by Turbo Boost 2.0 if necessary, up to 4.0 GHz. It should be noted, however, that the boost clock rates vary depending on the 1-core, 2-core, 4-core, or 6-core operation, allowing the best performance from the Coffee Lake CPU and the user can thus determine what performance is available for games or applications. The L3 cache has improved to 12 megabytes, the thermal design power (TDP) is 35 watts and as the Core i7, this Hexa-core processor has Intel's Hyper-Threading technology and can thus not only six, but 12 Run threads at the same time.
A key difference to the Skylake and Kaby Lake generation is that Coffee Lake is designed only for the fast and efficient DDR4 memory. The quad-core processors therefore support a maximum standard clock of 2,400 MHz, whereas the six-core processors allow up to 2,666 MHz standard clock. Intel's LGA 1151 will remain as a socket, but it is imperative that a motherboard with chipset of the 300 series is used, otherwise the processor could be damaged due to the changed power supply.
In direct comparison with the 200 series, the 300 series can convince with an optimized power supply for the entire CPU, which has improved the overclocking options. The integrated graphics unit has also been optimized in terms of clock and drivers and has now been named Intel HD Graphics UHD 630. With its 24 execution units, it offers more than enough graphics power for Intel Quick Sync, GPU computing and, of course, one or the other game in between. Furthermore, the graphics unit DirectX 12 with the feature level 12_1, OpenGL 4.5 and OpenCL 2.0 also supports the playback of 4K, UHD resolutions at 60 Hz via DisplayPort - assuming a corresponding mainboard.
