IPC gains/scaling, on a clock for clock/core to core comparison with 7600K at same clock speeds? Uh, none, as some anticipated, and , some feared...

 

As the Reviews hit, I'll post the links here...

And at AnandTech....;their results were odd, not sure if they were suffering from throttling or what, but, a few of their results showed the 8400 outperforming the 8700K in several games? (not sure how that would even be remotely possible)

In summary, the big Battlefield 1 results I was waiting for, at 1080P... a paltry .5 frame/sec increase? (They did mention using only a GTX1080, vice a Ti, which seems an odd choice, so, perhaps that will make a difference too. SHouldn't take too long for some 1080Ti results to be forthcoming)

 

Glad I went with 7700K, as I am disappointed, so far. (granted, the gaming while streaming results should be better)

 

Until more games scale better with more than 4c/8t, it sure appears I'll be standing pat for a while...

That darn 8400 seems to have a LOT of performance for $184....

 

Might quickly be the 'budget gamer' quite quickly if those results are accurate!

The 8400 seems to have 95% of the 8700K's gaming performance for about ....52% of the cost?? Wow.

No, it just shoes how overpriced 8700K is.

Not much compared to Intel's octa core.

I was thinking about maybe upgrading my Intel Core i7-3930K to the Intel Core i7-8700K.  The Intel Core i7-3930K  has served me well for the past five years and most of the other "upgrades" would be $1,000 plus for just the CPU.

 

When I say upgrade I mean build to replace.

As usual, I don't recommend switching hexa core to another hexa core. Speed difference is just too small.

And as usual, Cpubenchmark.net is one of last sites I would use to compare CPU's.

The 8 cores vs. 6 does not mean *quite* as much if/when/once 6 faster cores defeat the 8 core even in Blender, Cinebench, etc. do they? :) (If the 8700K is somewhat overpriced, then how is the 1800X's pricing?)

 

I'm actually pleasantly surprised  that Paul's Hardware testing showed only a 6w peak load increase (at the wall) with 8700K over 7700K, about 20 watts less than 1800X, and 6 watts more than 1600X.

If it was just for a faster processor, you might close up the difference by overclocking the 3930K.  It's still a pretty decent processor, and I'm reading stable overclocks well over 4 Ghz are usually achievable.  If it's for newer features like NVME that aren't on the old platform, then I guess that's different.

Another batch of 8600K (stock and OC'd) benchmarks...

 

Poor 7700K! :)
