ENGLISH Review + new charts – Intel Core i7 8700K & Intel Core i5 8600K – Coffee Lake + AORUS Z370 Ultra Gaming
You may love or hate Intel, and you may or may not be impressed with the gaming results. But when it comes to multimedia creation, the new CPU’s show very strong performance, with Core i5 8600K breathing down Core i7 7700K’s neck, and Core i7 8700K fighting very close to AMD Ryzen 7 1800X. A slightly better IPC and a huge operating frequency can make up for a couple of cores less, and we can see that very clearly. Funny enough, the overclocked Core i5 8600K even gives Core i7 7800K a run for it’s money, and one can only assume that the first models in the X299 line-up are rendered obsolete by Coffee Lake.
