An 8700k at stock beats this with 16105, overclock if and would demolish …An 8700k at stock beats this with 16105, overclock if and would demolish this.


What is 16105 ?
A single benchmark I guess.
Depends what software you are using. Sometimes the AMD will win and sometimes the Intel will win.
Gaming - Intel will usually win but games are usually GPU bound so there is little worthwhile in it.

And where can you pick up an 8700k for £268?

Fab find, in stock and one of the best for multiple stuff at once!

Not a bad deal, but just consider a 1700 if they can be found nearer £200 as this 1800x is just a higher binned/clocked CPU with a little more cache.. in a lot of cases a 1700 would get very near an 1800X when OCed with a good cooler.
[edit] on Amazon a 1700x is £20 cheaper, whether that's worth it or not is up to you... you might be able to find much cheaper soon when the refresh versions come out.

Price drop mainly as new gen chips coming out. However, this is still a great price for some high powered kit.
Prices are being cut to clear stock with the 2600X and 2700X due next month on the 19th.
Certainly at this stage I would be hanging on to see what the Ryzen 2 series bring. A Ryzen 2700X should beat this looking at the leaks, as well as offering better overclocking for potentially similar money.

Or wait til April for the Ryzen 2 series to come out and watch all the prices fall

Same bench posted on here.
£301 for the k, much better CPU, £33 difference, no brainer.

it depends on what you are doing with each chip, the 8700k is a 6c/12t chip the 1800x is a 8c/16t chip. they will excel and be weak in different areas.

Such as? please elaborate with benchmarks, ta.

Search any benchmark for cinebench or most rendering apps.

Intel will win single core (but why would you render single core).
Civ VI dx12 benchmarks will show better results for the 1800x.

This doesn’t show the story of performance between these two chips, but you asked for examples of where an 1800x beats 8700k.
For Civ VI, even the 1600x beats the 8700k in this benchmark.

You can’t just quote one benchmark to get a story of a chip. PC Mark has long favoured Intel over AMD and also Nvidia over AMD, sometimes in a laughable way.

Also if a chip is 11% more expensive than another you would hope to get 11% better performance. Even in gaming you won’t often see an 11% difference between these two.

yawn, stock 8700K. You do know they overclock to 5GHz+ quite easily unlike these AMD things. You dont get a K and keep it stock.

cinebench 1653, wait, that beats this Ryzen

You asked a question to taras post and I answered it. You clearly didn’t like the answer so you then add in a mega cooled system with overclocking. Do you know how much that cooler would have cost? It’s no longer like for like in cost (not that it was anyway) so no point in comparing.

8700k is the direct competitor to the 1800x
mega cooler, eh cost, mine was £50.
As powerbrick stated, you don't buy a 8700K to keep it at stock.
I would be interested though, to see an overclocked Intel 8700k vs AMD 1800x.
That would ultimately decide which is fastest, when overclocked.
IIRC jayz2cents,paul's hardware, hardware canucks, and bitwit had benchmark's of this... but most are geared towards gaming where the intel will win most times for the single threaded clocks. I don't care either way really, have good CPUs from both players, and they each shine in certain use cases.

And also, just mentioning it as I have seen posts saying about Ryzen 2... Ryzen 2 doesn't come out until around Q2 next year, the CPUs that drop in around a month are Zen+, which is basically an enhanced "refresh" of the 1st series Ryzen CPUs that will have better clockspeeds and close some of the gap in the gaming performance as well as increasing the multi-core performance. The IPC should also be better IIRC, because the "refresh" CPUs are going to be on 12nm instead of 14nm.
Zen 2 when it comes, should be on 7nm, and will be the biggest upgrade in terms of performance I believe out of the entire AM4 product lines.
