Intel Core i7-8700K Overview

  • 1Description

The Intel Core i7-8700K 3.7 GHz 6-Core LGA 1151 Processor provides six cores with each one operating between 3.7 and 4.7 GHz for editing digital content, streaming live gameplay, and running other types of intensive tasks. If you need more performance, you can overclock the cores to function above its maximum frequency. This 8th-generation Intel Core i7-8700K processor is built on Coffee Lake architecture and armed with 12MB of cache memory. The processor is compatible with motherboards that sport an LGA 1151 socket and an Intel Z370 chipset, so the CPU can provide up to sixteen PCIe 3.0 lanes for NVMe storage drives, graphics cards, and other high-performance parts. Moreover, it comes with Intel Hyper-Threading technology, which lets each core handle two instruction threads for running multi-threaded applications.

Intel has equipped the Intel Core i7-8700K processor with an integrated Intel UHD Graphics 630 chipset that outputs up to 4K visuals through your motherboard's DisplayPort and HDMI ports. When connected to a DisplayPort-enabled monitor, the Intel UHD Graphics 630 can produce 4096 x 2304 resolution at 60 Hz. Running under a 4K resolution lets you enjoy ultra high-definition videos as well as view more information onscreen when compared to working in a lower resolution workspace.

Aside from graphics, the Intel Core i7-8700K processor has an average power requirement of 95W and supports DDR4 2666 MHz memory modules, running in a dual- or single-channel configuration. For enterprise and any other data-sensitive environments, it supports Intel vPro, Intel Trusted Execution, and other Intel-based technologies.

    Intel Core i7-8700K Reviews

    Core i7-8700K 3.7 GHz 6-Core LGA 1151 Processor is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 51.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Extremely powerful CPU (If you can tame it) why I chose this CPU: I wanted something that could multitask (Stream) while maintaining high fps (144hz) in games. I have been using this CPU for around a month or so now. It's an moster but ran VERY VERY HOT, I have mine cooled by a X62 liquid cooler and is as hitting temps of 90c stock. I sent my chip put to silicon lottery for a delid, and then I overclocked my chip to 5.2 Ghz at 1.415V which is quite good. the temps after the delid, the max I've seen is around 80c in torture testing. It has given me everything I expected from it without to many issues. it's a great CPU you just need to find a way to tame it. I took one star off becuase Intel needs to stop putting cheap TIM on these high end chips.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Upgrade from fx 8350 I mean it's a day and night difference I couldn't be happier. I had a and FX-8350 16gb ddr3 1866mhz ram and a Nvidia gtx 1080 and upgraded my ram to 16gb ddr 3466mhz 8700k with the same GTX 1080. My fps alone in cs go doubled to tripled and in pubg with half my settings on ultra I consistently get 144fps majority of the time with it sometimes dipping into the 130's.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great performance right out of the box. Coupled with a Noctua NH-D15 air cooler and everything at stock/default settings, I encode hour long videos using. The CPU was at usage 96% capacity, temp at 65C with the CPU fan at 575 rpm and all cores running at or above 4.2GHz. Haven't tried overclocking yet, but looks like plenty of room. Certainly is great performance straight out of the box

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is what you think it is - Incredible If you're looking at this CPU, chances are you already know what it's capable of. Your PC will sing and fly through everyday tasks and high refresh gaming all while streaming. However, if you're planning to just game, consider the i5 variant as they are on par with each other in benches.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded my expectations! I was in need of a fast processor with at least 6 cores and 12 threads.? For my work and pleasure, which is audio and video editing - I'm not a pro, not yet - this processor is working out beautifully!? I can render video in the background, upload video or other projects in the background, and still have enough power to surf the web or start creating a new project.? While it is not and i9 it is certainly a great CPU for the price

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Be Aware If you still use Windows 7 operating system (and some of us did) this processor will not let you run Windows 7.  Microsoft has decide not to support intel generation 8 processors in Windows 7.  When I first booted up into windows 7 the mouse didnt work because with this processor and windows 7 that wasnt possible.  Still cant believe Microsoft has done this but live and learn I guess. In windows 10 it runs fine.  It is fast.  Guess Im going to have to get used to windows 10.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's Amazing Before I got this processor I had a dual core 3.3 gz intel processor. It was trash. The only game that needs all of the processing power possible is Arma 3, which I can now play at high/very high settings. My performance overall has been trippled. I have the noctual d15 mounted as my fan. I'd recommend this if you have anything below an i5 7600k. If you've got above that, wait for the price to go down a bit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything we needed plus some After being backordered, this item proved to be worth the wait.? It easily powers our min-ATX VR build paired with a 1080GTX Ti and 64GB of memory.? Removing bottlenecks for this thing was important so we went with NVMe SSDs.?? In any case.? Very capable chip, with adequate cooling it's blown everything away we've thrown at it.? My students will be able to press this thing hard for quite some time.
