Just when you thought the Intel® Core™ i9-7900K already makes you the tallest person in the circle, think again and watch out. For someone who might already have the Intel® Core™ i7-8700K, then that simply justifies that someone else stands greater than you.

 

Still in the form of i7, the Intel® Core™ i7-8700K leaps into the competition of high-tier processors against the likes of Ryzen™ and its other Intel® Core™ brothers. This processor is now in its 8th (Coffee Lake-S) generation  that is powered by six cores and 12 threads, making it a huge threat against leading Ryzen™ processors. The i7-8700K currently raises the company flag in the chip department.

 

Surprisingly, you have to upgrade to a newer motherboard since its chipset is Z370, eerily similar to Z270 and Z170 chipsets. After all, it’s the 8th generation.

 

The i7-8700K is integrated with 10x USB 3.1 5Gbps ports, together with RAID on PCI-E based SSD setups and supports DDR4-2666 MHz memory in native mode and can handle up to 4400 MHz in OC mode.

 

The i7-8700K boasts its Hyper-Threaded hexa-core, which is capable of boosting the processor up to a monstrous 4.7GHz bomb through the use of Turbo Boost. It runs in 3.7GHz in normal clocking, which is half a GHz slower compared to the Intel® Core™ i7-7700K. Through Coffee Lake’s architecture, the i7-8700K uses a 14nm++ process which reduces a huge bulk of power consumption while overclocking the processor to its maximum potential, giving enough breathing room for the extra cores.

 

When measuring the processor’s single core speed, it dominates the chart by a fair margin. However, the Ryzen™ 7 1800X proves faster and stronger in terms of multi-core speed.

 

When talking about the i7-8700K’s performance over office tasks, it’s considerably better than the i7-7700K, thanks to the added two cores. How about in the gaming departure? It’s the same case — faster and smoother.

 

If pursuing games to a higher level of speed is what you’re seriously contemplating, it’s a no-brainer that the i7-8700K is all you need right now. However, its Z370 chipset requires you to buy a 7370 motherboard which is apparently pricey at this given time. The Intel® Core™ i7-8700K definitely holds its ground as the best processor for gaming right now, even if it was somehow released prematurely this year.

 

You bet, AMD is now creating blueprints on how to take down their longtime rival.
