Verdict

By

Finally, we have a six-core Intel CPU in the mainstream segment. And the good thing about the Intel Core i7-8700K is that it's a 6-core processor that outdoes AMD's 8-core Ryzen 7 1800X in quite a few benchmarks. Given that its US pricing is lower than the 1800X's pricing, Intel has officially given rise to a better CPU. Intel's weakness was the lower core-count in the mainstream segment, which AMD clearly took advantage of. AMD's monumental IPC increment was still no match for Intel's capabilities. So despite the apparent lack of IPC improvement in Coffee Lake vs Kabylake, we still end up getting a better performance overall. There are rendering scenarios which are heavily multi-threaded where the Ryzen 7 1800X continues to shine but the gap has been reduced greatly. Gaming is an area where AMD still needs a lot of optimisation but Coffee Lake doesn't. We tried overclocking the CPU on the GIGABYTE Z370 AORUS Gaming 7 and managed to get it stable at 5.1 GHz on air-cooling. We even took it up to 5.2 GHz but not all benchmarks could run without crashes. All that remains is for the motherboard manufacturers to release a budget Z370 board and you have your next upgrade ready.
