Intel Core i7-8700K Processor Review

System Overview & Testing Procedures
So obviously we will be running the Core i7-8700K in a Z370 system, but we will be testing a handful of processors from both AMD and Intel so we have three different test systems. They are comprised of the following components.

For testing the processors everything will be set to auto in the BIOS. The reason we do is because most people will have this setup on their own PC. This is the default mode if you do not go into the BIOS and change anything.

Here are the specifications of all four processors we will be testing today.

Core i7-8700K: 3.7 GHz / 4.7 GHz
Core i7-7700K: 4.2 GHz / 4.5 GHz
Core i7-6700K: 4.0 GHz / 4.2 GHz
Core i5-8400: 2.8 GHz / 4.0 GHz
Ryzen 7 1700X: 3.4 GHz / 3.8 GHz
Ryzen 5 1600: 3.2 GHz / 3.6 GHz
