  • The i7-8700 has higher Level 3 Cache. This is useful when you have substantial multiprocessing workloads, many computationally intense simultaneous processes. More likely on a server, less on a personally used computer for interactive desktop workloads.
  • The i7-8700 has more threads. Larger programs are divided into threads (small sections) so that the processor can execute them simultaneously to get faster execution.
  • For some games, a cpu with a higher clock speed, or in a technical name IPC (Instructions per clock), has better results than other CPU's with higher core count and lower core speed.
  • The i7-8700 has a higher turbo clock boost. Turbo Boost is a CPU feature that will run CPU clock speed faster than its base clock, if certain conditions are present. It will enable older software that runs on fewer cores, to perform better on newer hardware. Since games are software too, it is also applicable to them.

    i5 8600k or i7 8700 (non k)
    Quick question what makes most sense to upgrade to a i5 8600k or i7 8700?

    I have a gtx 1080 i should be able to oc to around 1900mhz atm 1700mhz but i only have an i5 8400 and was wondering what the best upgrade is, an i5 8600k i would oc to around 70-75 c and still have my scythe mugen 5 be silent or a stock i7 8700 i know just because of the additional threads get's alot hotter compared to an equal fast,oc'ed i5

    My i5 8400 goes up to 60 c in prime95 small fft, i have an 2560x1440 144hz/165hz monitor so max performance is something i wouldn't mind having.

    When im taking test like on game debat to se my performance score my cpu often score lower compared to the recomendation needed in 2560x1440

    I run my 8600k at 5.0ghz 24/7. I probably get 15 to 20 fps more then I would at stock. I have a 2560x1080 144hz LG monitor. I get good framerates even though I am only rocking a gtx 1070. I personally think you will be very happy with the i5 8600k

    Ryzen 2600 vs i7 8700 valuewise
    Hey guys im not sure whether or not i should buy a ryzen 2600 or a i7 8700. Currently i have a i5 3570k and gtx 970 and the cpu died just recently so looking to upgrade my cpu. For the ryzen build it would cost around 0 while the i7 8700 build will cost around 750.

    Ryzen build: ryzen 2600 +16 gb 3200mhz ddr4 ram + b450 tomahawk mobo msi + air cooler

    Intel build : i7 8700 + 16 gb 3200 mhz ddr4 ram + cheap h310m board

    Therefore 750 / 650 = 1.15

    Currently im playing mostly fortnite on 1080p low settings and want to hit 144 fps for my 144hz monitor as im currently sitting at around 100 fps.

    Hence will i expect the i7 8700 build to deliver 1.15 the performance of the 2600 or more?

    I know once you go higher than 1080p, most games become gpu bound but im not too sure in my scenario given im trying to get higher fps over better quality settings.

    Thank you in advance.

    If this is a pure gaming build, then the 8400 would be the best on the Intel side in terms of value and will provide frame rates at near or better than the 2600 ..The 8700 will be better that the 2600 but only in a gaming context and depending on games anywhere from 5% to 20%. In fortnite at 1080P Epic settings it is 130FPS for the 2600 versus 155 FPS for the 8700...The 8400 gets 143 FPS

    Also for the DDR4 3200 ram, you will need a Z370 motherboard with the cheapest around for the MSI Z370A Pro...which will also allow you to upgrade to 9th gen Intel CPU's like the 9700K, 9800K and 9900K in the future..

    i7 8700 vs i7 8700K(No overclocking)
    I have been using the i5 4590 and now I am going for a full upgrade which includes RAM,MOB etc.The internet is blowing up about how awesome the i7 8700K is for gaming but nobody seems to talk about the i7 8700.Can someone please tell me which one to go for,the non K version or the K version.Please keep in mind that I will not be overclocking even if I get the K version and will the difference in gaming performance be significant when both CPUs are running at stock settings.

    The 8700 would be by a long shot the better deal for you if Intel had the H and B series motherboards out right now, but it's going to be a while if they even come. If I were you I'd probably get the cheapest z370 board you can find, an i7 8700, and some slightly above bargain basement RAM. Even the non-OC intel processors can support 2666MHz RAM speed this generation and you will want to take advantage of it. 2133MHz RAM is going to limit your speed by a noticeable amount.

    i5 8400 vs i7 7700 vs i7 8700 for gaming
    I am thinking that how much i7 8700 is better than i7 7700 and can i5 8400 is good enough for gaming like PUBG , AC origins , battlefield 1, titanfall 2 , R6 Siege , GTA 5 , and more upcoming games.. i7 8th gen is priced high and its motherboard is also high priced thats why m confused to go with i7 7700 or i7 8700 , Or i5 8400 is enough ?


    I will pair it with Zotac GTX 1080 Mini


    Thank you and sorry for my English. Btw i live in India

    The 8400 is good enough for gaming and assuming you are talking about the 7700 non K, the 8400 will actually be faster in most games.

    i7 8700k vs i7 8700?
    So I'm building a PC, and I was wondering what to get. I wanna know the difference between these CPU's. I don't think I would be overclocking anytime at all, as i don't initially like it. So I will be depending it on the base clock speed and such. I will be playing most AAA games, and I won't be editing videos or anything. Maybe having a few tabs in the background and such; but no editing or streaming videos. So mainly, just playing games and surfing the web and such. However, I will be getting a monitor, with 144hz G Sync 1440p. So... 8700k? or 8700?
    Also, what power supply would be best for this build? 600? 750? 850?
    Also, I'm trying to buy a NZXT S340 ELITE, however it is sold out, like couple of months and I don't think it will be back in stock. Will the NZXT H500i be good enough for it?

    My PC specs:
    Motherboard: Asus Rog Strix Z370-E
    GPU: EVGA 1070 TI (because I already have one,but maybe upgrading to a 1080 Ti in the future)
    CPU COOLER: NZXT KRAKEN X62.
    RAM: CORSAIR - VENGEANCE LED Series 16GB (2PK 8GB) 3.2GHz DDR4
