ENGLISH Review + new charts – Intel Core i7 8700K & Intel Core i5 8600K – Coffee Lake + AORUS Z370 Ultra Gaming
It’s time to draw a conclusion regarding one of Intel’s most exciting CPU launches in recent years. And I have to say it from the very beginning – I am disappointed with the American company because there is no representative in Romania. And I’m disappointed that they use beaver oil between the IHS and the die, just as I’m disappointed that CPU prices have increased and although we’re dealing with a slightly improved architecture, the new CPU’s cannot work on the Z270 motherboards.
No, I’m sure sure about this, Intel is not one of my favorite companies this year, and the way a company for which I have had a huge respect for years decided to treat my consumers deeply saddens me. However, I can not let these personal feelings intervene when we analyze new products. Therefore, I have to give credit where credit is due and admit that Intel managed an exceptional launch, with products that actually bring something extra, after years of offering technological advances in small doses.
Finally, we are dealing with a considerable step forward, from 4 core Intel Core i3’s to the fabulous Core i5 with 6 cores, which will most likely run at 5GHz in most enthusiast rigs. The Core i7 8700K at 4700MHz is a real brute, giving AMD’s 1800X a really hard time, but the true star of this article, in my opinion, is the Intel Core i5 8600K, a CPU that will make both gamers and overclockers really happy.
Coffee Lake is here, the technological progress is real, and Intel has managed a big launch, the likes of which I have not seen for many years. For this reason, next week you will be able to read a second review centered on 8600K, which will complement the information we provide today. Until then, we cannot close this review without thanking those who have made it possible, those who have restored the competition on the CPU market and gave Intel a serious reason to work harder and give us better CPU’s. For Coffee Lake, for 4 cores on Core i3, for 6 cores on Core i5, for 5GHz in everyday use, let’s all thank AMD! Thank you AMD for making this possible !!!
In the end, I hope you appreciate the new charts, and remember, if you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask them here. Even if English is not our native language and we are not very good speakers, we will do our best to answer any question here, in the comments, with the limited English skills we posses. Also, please remember that very soon your favorite websites will publish their Coffee Lake reviews. Be sure to check them out and support the work of the editors! Cheers, and thank you for reading.
