Cracking prices for these CPUs. Some of the cheapest at the moment I think. (Have tried using the search on here. )

Great price! 8600k for 8400 money just about as well!

So tempting!

8600k for 8400 money just about as well!


More like £40 more which is 25% more.
I saw that but wasnt sure the cheat10 working on these, heat for finding!
8700k can be found slightly cheaper on eBay (£289), but if you don't trust eBay despite the buyer protection, this is a great deal from a reputable vendor, heat added

8600K for £200 is pretty fantastic.

On these summarised wide ranging tests it beats the 8 core Ryzen 1800X even in productivity tests when both overclocked and is right near the top of the tree when gaming, whether left stock or overclocked

Depends what you are doing in terms of productivity. If single or low threaded usage (as many of the productivity tests shown were), then Intel will win. If multi threaded use such as rendering or media encoding the the Ryzen will usually win (against equivalent price processors).

The tests show a fairly broad spectrum of media and office productivity. 8600k is strong all round even compared to the more expensive 8 core Ryzens.
what is the % increase vs my i7 6700k in gaming terms?

In gaming terms it's a 0.2-1.1% increase, at 1440p and 1080p respectively. Save your money unless you've gotten into multimedia editing and stuff
Hi, can anyone tell me if this is a significant upgrade on an i7 4770K?

Many Thanks

I think your percentages as some way off, I've looked at a lot of benchmarks as looking to upgrade myself and some games you are looking at 15-20% increase in fps so it will depend on which game.

techpowerup.com/rev…tml This should help a bit I accidentally quoted numbers comparing 6700k to 8600k, but the 8700k is a fraction of a percentage faster

Although having said that, Youtube videos have shown that the 8700k can be, as you said, around 15% faster stock vs stock.. I have a 4670k myself and I always thought I'd sit with it for a good 6-7 years but seeing the benchs around have my upgrade bug flaring up haha

If using highly threaded applications that efficiently (properly) make use of extra cores (threads), rendering and encoding, gaming whilst streaming etc - the Ryzen 7's are a really strong proposition due to the high core and thread count, and will in many cases perform much better outright, and still great in the performance/£ charts. The Core i9's are powerful, but stupidly priced by Intel.

Single threaded applications; general office productivity, gaming etc and the IPC win still (mostly) belongs to Intel - though AMD has done a great job catching up - this is really where the 8600k shines.

Nevertheless, the 8600k is a bit of a beast for the price and a great generalist CPU for consumers and some enthusiasts, AMD nudging the lazy Intel hand to put 6 cores FINALLY in consumer grade products. Competition is good!

The tests are a good mix of what a majority of people might use everyday and for that an 8600K has a superb balance.

If you're doing professional work in some circumstances an 8 core will be faster. Overall though the 8600k wins against the 8 core Ryzens as the tests display even when factoring in media work. It's been the case for a very long time now that for average home consumers better IPC and higher clocks is generally superior to more but slower cores.
Is it worth upgrading my i5600k to the newer i58600k?
Can anyone point me to where I use the CHEAT10 code?. I don't see anywhere during checkout to use it.
This discount code doesn't seem to work anymore.
