At the end of the summer, Intel introduced new mobile processors of the Kaby Lake Refresh generation. Their main feature is the presence of four cores with a TDP of 15 watts. But this is an energy-efficient CPU, but Intel did not show anything for high-performance solutions.
And now the web appeared information about the model Core i7-8700HQ, which will replace the Core i7-7700HQ. Most importantly - the new CPU will be a six-core! That is, it will be the first six-core mobile processor of Intel. In this case, its TDP will be the same 45 Watt as in the case of its predecessor.

True, the frequencies will be slightly lower: 2.4-3.6 GHz versus 2.8-3.8 GHz. Here it is worth noting that the tests passed an engineering sample, so the serial CPU frequencies may differ slightly. Also known about 9 MB of cache in the third level. By the way, the CPU-Z software refers the novelty to the generation of Coffee Lake.
