Silicon Lottery, a company that sells delidded and binned chips with warranty, has published additional statistics on Coffee Lake. Specifically, the company has published new information on Intel’s current mainstream flagship processor, the hexa-core Core i7-8700K.

The part has been sorted into five frequencies ranging from 4.9 GHz to 5.3 GHz with 100% of the parts reaching at least 4.9 GHz. Note that those values are as of November 11, 2017.

% of chips Frequency AVX Offset Vcore
100% 4.9 GHz -2 1.387 V
Top 81% 5.0 GHz -2 1.400 V
Top 58% 5.1 GHz -2 1.412 V
Top 30% 5.2 GHz -2 1.425 V
Top 6% 5.3 GHz -2 1.437 V

Last month (October 16), the company published similar statistics regarding the Core i3-8350K which were binned at slightly lower frequency and had a higher voltage.

% of chips Frequency AVX Offset Vcore
Top 96% 4.8 GHz -2 1.400 V
Top 82% 4.9 GHz -2 1.412 V
Top 59% 5.0 GHz -2 1.425 V
Top 27% 5.1 GHz -2 1.437 V
Top 14% 5.2 GHz -2 1.450 V

Those values are expected to further improve over time.
