ENGLISH Review + new charts – Intel Core i7 8700K & Intel Core i5 8600K – Coffee Lake + AORUS Z370 Ultra Gaming

Final thoughts

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.

    Thanks for the review and the effort 🙂

    Thank you guys!

  4. squawker a scris pe:

    Very fine review, showing all main aspects of Intel’s last launch.
    Keep up the excellent job!

  5. horse a scris pe:

    thank you very much, would it be possible to run some 4k benchmarks in future reviews ?

    Thanks once again

  6. Monstru Post author a scris pe:

    As more and more people will adopt 4K we will begin using it in our tests.

  7. Cesar a scris pe:

    Why are the temperatures so high on the 8600K? Even though it works with less threads it’s hotter than an 8700K? It doesn’t make any sense. Can someone explain this??

  8. Monstru Post author a scris pe:

    Cesar – the temperatures are lower on 8600K. You are probably looking at the overclocked temperatures (5.1GHz with 1.35v).

  9. J.Nicolae a scris pe:

    Very nice OC at 1.35v. This is the trend, for Intel.

    thank you! too excited now for that 8700k. wonder how it will do with just a cheap aio considering these went to 5.2/5.3 on air. it’s a brand new day!

    I don’t get it, i checked a few tech websites and numbers are all over the place.
    I want a CPU for content creation, power consumption and render times are important as it will run for hours a day.
    Now, if i look at your charts it seems ryzen 1800x is a bit slower or the same as 8700k but consumes 43W more and gets hotter.
    If i read tomshardware review it seems 1800x, even when overclocked consumes less power than stock 8700k.
    Checked other websites like guru3d,pcworld and the usual tests in handbrake or cinebench put 1700x and 1800x faster than 8700k and some the other way around.
    What is wrong here ? What are the real numbers ?
    Also, what’s the cpu usage in those benchmarks like handbrake or photoshop for different cpu’s ?

    Hi Sierra,

    when it comes to real apps, my advice is to always look at something that is similar to what you will use the CPU for. Because Photoshop is one thing, and 3DSMax is a totally different thing, handbrake is one thing and Premiere is another and so on. So basically, try to find the websites with the test that uses the same tech (encoding engine, rendering engine) as what you will use the CPU for. There are no absolutes here.

    Second, I cannot speak for other websites, I can only speak for our methodology, where the vCore is fixed, RAM runs at the same clocks with same vDDR and so on. And in our tests, 1800X draws more power generally speaking . We test in Prime, and we test using the last version, that also really supports the new AMD architecture.

    As I said, I can only speak for my self, and with our conditions, our settings and our benchmarks these are the results.
