Intel Core i5-8400 Processor Review

Yesterday we took a look at Intel's flagship 8th Generation Core Desktop processor, the Core i7-8700K. While that processor sits at the top of the product stack, today we are checking out one of the new Core i5 chips. It is the Core i5-8400 which is the only other 8th Generation Core i5 chip besides the Core i5-8600K. For the first time we are also seeing a 6-core Core i5 chips, much like the new i7's. This means we are going to see a nice performance increase over the previous generation. The Core i5-8400 has six cores, six threads (since no HyperThreading), a base clock of 2.8 GHz and boosts up to 4.0 GHz. Unlike the K-series chips you have a lower TDP of only 65W. This chip also comes in at a very attractive price point of only $182. Let's take it for a spin and see how it does!
