Not the K version.

It's also not a washing machine, what's your point?

Guess I'll have to stick with Indesit then!

hmmm i wonder if a OCed 8600K is better or this for gaming. its only £30 different

When taking overall system cost into account it makes no sense to get anything less than the 8700K - every chip will hit an all-core turbo of 4.7ghz minimum.

Indeed if your building this might aswell spend the extra 30

Doesn't the K version have a much higher TDP and presumably higher temps etc? I'm sure most websites stated the non-k version was the better buy. Heat from me.

Plus postage if you don't live near Bolton? BT shop via topcashback seems like the better option.

Any point upgrading from an i7-3770k.

depends what you do - for gaming, definitely not, for productivity, depends on how much you value your time?

Oh look, another clown on these forums. It was a notice incase anyone saw 310 and 8700 and hastily bought it thinking they were getting a 8700k at a cheap price.

Or the extended answer, youd have to be either dense or not realise what youre getting to buy a non-k version of the chip.

I'd somewhat disagree, as the 8700 (non K) version still has it's place

It's got a lower base frequency, but the top end is still almost similar, and it uses less power. For some people who won't be thrashing the CPU or using a load of machines in Hyper-V, it will still be sufficient considering the ~120 quid difference at the moment.

If the prices were really close, I would agree though

Price difference is £90, which will drop back to £70 once stock levels stabilise.
Factor in the memory (3200mhz to get most out of platform) and motherboard (£150 average for z370 as cheaper boards not out until next year):

8700 : £610
8700K : £700 -> £680

The 8700K with Multi-Core Enhancement enabled will run 4.7ghz out of the box. In a year or two when your 8700 starts to struggle you'll wish you'd spent that little bit extra on the 8700K.

This one runs at 4.6 out the box hardly a massive difference.

Not the K version.



I see someone was very snarky about your reply, and got 22 likes.

But I was, indeed, hasty and thought this was the 'K' version. your comment saved my silly, hasty, purchase from being wrong.

So whatever anyone else says, it was a good comment. Thanks.

You see 8700 without a K and thought it was the K version?

seriously?

Yep, I was very hyped to see the deal and in my haste I didn't realize it was the non-k.

Do I really need to repeat myself? I've been scouring the web for a sub 330 8700k processor since release, I got excited and assumed a minor mispriced at 2 am. Bought it and woke up and double checked.

Oh, you will also notice the box art is identical.

Lol yeah was only joking.

And wow you actually purchased one thinking it was other.

Tone is hard to infer online. It's really hard to tell if you were being chummy or scummy in your reply.

Intel marketing has done well. No it doesn't, that's the single core boost. Multi-core speed is 4.3ghz max, depending on quality of the chip. The 8700K also has hyperthreading, giving it an even larger performance difference to the 8700.

All the 8700 will boost to the same, quality of chip doesn't mean anything for the non-k.

Also the 8700 has hyper threading it's the same chip as the 8700k just without the overclocking and slightly lower boost.

It does, because those boosts are done within the TDP. A poor quality chip will need more voltage, resulting in a lower boost.

Boost are not done within tdp as soon as that is boosting all cores it will be far higher than tdp.

FIGHT !!!!

I am still on my i7 2600 and it's still going fine

If you're looking to buy the K version specifically then you'll have done your research and will be stringently looking for the K version. How thick do you think people are? Have a little more faith in your HUKD brethren!
