Intel Core i7-8700K Processor Review

When AMD launched their Ryzen processors back in March things were a little shaky at first with stability and memory issues, which we talked about in our review of the Ryzen 7 1700X. Over time many of those problems were solved with micro-code and BIOS updates and Ryzen proved to be a real contender in the CPU market, even <a href="http://thinkcomputers.wpengine.com/amd-cpu-sales-overtake-intel-for-the-first-time-in-over-a-decade/" rel="noopener" target="_blank">out-selling Intel parts</a> at some major retailers. Needless to say AMD really shook up the Desktop CPU market with their Ryzen processor, offering an alternative to Intel's Core i7, Core i5, and Core i3 CPUs. This is the first time in a while we've seen real competition in the CPU market, and we definitely like it! Today Intel is officially launching their 8th Generation Core desktop processors with the Core i7-8700K leading the pack. These processors are Intel's first real response to Ryzen, and we finally have a core-count increase on a mainstream desktop processor! That is right, the Core i7-8700K is a 6-core, 12-thread part! It has a base-clock of 3.7 GHz, boosts up to 4.7 GHz, and being a "K" series processor it is fully unlocked. Let's dive into the new 8th Generation Core Series and see how stacks up against AMD's Ryzen Processors.

Intel Core i7-7740X Processor Review

Just the other day we published our review of Intel's Core i9-7900X Skylake-X processor. It was our first review of a processor in Intel's new Core X Series, and now today we have the Core i7-7740X Kaby Lake-X processor. This processor is based on a different micro-architecture than the other processors that sit above it in Intel's X Series product stack. With the i7-7740X you have Kaby Lake cores and it is the first time we've seen Intel launch two generations of processors at the same time (Kaby Lake-X / Skylake-X). The i7-7740X is a quad-core processor with a base clock speed of 4.3 GHz, boosts up to 4.5 GHz, 8 MB of cache, 16 PCI-Express lanes, and a 112W TDP. Intel is pricing this processor at only $339, not a bad price to get into Intel's HEDT platform. If you are building a new system should you be looking at the Core i7-7740X? Read on as we find out!

Intel’s 7th Generation Core Processors To Launch in Q4

Last week we detailed the first wave of Intel's upcoming Kaby Lake processors. These new processors will make use of the same 14 nm node that we have seen with Broadwell and Skylake, but with architecture optimization. Kaby Lake desktop processors were rumored to arrive in early 2017, but the latest rumor suggests that we could see them a little sooner. The latest leak says that we could see low-power chips in September and the mainstream desktop parts in December.
