Intel Coffee Lake Single Core Clock-To-Clock Performance Results

I also tested the various chips of the same tier at adjusted clock speeds to note down any IPC improvements. It looks like that Coffee Lake has slightly better IPC thanks to process and little architectural tweaking that come from more stabilized clocks. The clock speeds used are listed as:

  • Intel Core i5-7600K / Intel Core i5-7640X / Intel Core i9-7800X / Intel Core i5-8600K (4.5 GHz adjusted clocks)
  • Intel Core i7-7700K / Intel Core i7-7740X / Intel Core i9-7800X / Intel Core i7-8700K (4.5 GHz adjusted clocks)
