If you are interested in buying one then you must be wondering what does this chip have to offer? Well, let me tell you that according to rumors and leaks around the internet, the Intel Core i7-8086K will be able to give you 5 GHz out of the box. While this is something that you can achieve with other chips as well, this is that the Intel Core i7-8086K is able to do out of the box.

That seems to be the major selling point of the chip. Other than that there is nothing that other chips do not offer. The 8700k, for example, comes with 6 cores and 12 threads, the same as the Intel Core i7-8086K. So it the Intel Core i7-8086K worth getting? This answer depends on what you already have. If you already have the 8700k then this chip is not going to do you any good.

You have pretty much the same specs, but if you have an older CPU, 6th generation or maybe even older and you are looking to upgrade then this is something worth looking into. If you are an Intel fan then this will give you some bragging points, as this is a limited edition CPU. We will let you know more about the Intel Core i7-8086K when it comes out.

Let us know what you think about the Intel Core i7-8086K and whether or not you are interested in getting one of these chips just for the bragging rights.
