IPC-test: Kaby Lake vs. Coffee Lake

While there are no changes to the architecture of Coffee Lake compared with Kaby Lake, we did perform an IPC-test. For this we underclocked all processors to 2.4 GHz. We left HyperThreading on for all CPUs, but in order to compare apples with apples we did turn off two cores on the 8700K. Considering the processors are not interchangeable, we did test on different motherboards. 

As expected there is no difference in IPC between the different CPUs. The differences are within the error margin.
