Intel launched their newer i7-8086K CPU, which is basically just a higher clocked i7-8700K, so what is the difference in performance? To find out I’ve tested a bunch of different games at 1080p, 1440p and 4K resolutions at stock and while overclocked.
It’s not all about gaming though, I’ve also tested a number of CPU specific benchmarks and applications including Adobe Premiere, 3D rendering, Cinebench and more. Finally I’ll discuss if it’s worth it to pay more money for the more expensive 8086K CPU or if you should just save money and get the cheaper 8700K.
