The Windows 8 Release Candidate is next on the list in the development phases of Windows 8, after the success of the Consumer Preview.
For the Windows 8 Developer Preview, the OS was released at the compiled build of 8102, and the Windows 8 Consumer Preview was compiled at build 8250. There is a 150 (148 to be exact) build difference between the two releases, so the RC is likely to follow in these footsteps.
Therefore, the Release Candidate can be expected to be compiled at build 8400, just another 150 builds after the Consumer Preview. It also makes sense, as the latest Windows 8 build was compiled at 8307 just days ago, it has taken Microsoft just under a month to compile 57 builds of Windows 8, and with recent news suggesting the RC to be released in late May/early June, then 8400 seems very reasonable.
