Intel Core i7-8700K Processor Review
     Wed, Oct 11 2017 | 4:01P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"When AMD launched their Ryzen processors back in March things were a little shaky at first with stability and memory issues, which we talked about in our review of the Ryzen 7 1700X. Over time many of those problems were solved with micro-code and BIOS updates and Ryzen proved to be a real contender in the CPU market, even out-selling Intel parts at some major retailers. Needless to say AMD really shook up the Desktop CPU market with their Ryzen processor, offering an alternative to Intel’s Core i7, Core i5, and Core i3 CPUs. This is the first time in a while we’ve seen real competition in the CPU market, and we definitely like it! Today Intel is officially launching their 8th Generation Core desktop processors with the Core i7-8700K leading the pack. These processors are Intel’s first real response to Ryzen, and we finally have a core-count increase on a mainstream desktop processor! That is right, the Core i7-8700K is a 6-core, 12-thread part! It has a base-clock of 3.7 GHz, boosts up to 4.7 GHz, and being a “K” series processor it is fully unlocked. Let’s dive into the new 8th Generation Core Series and see how stacks up against AMD’s Ryzen Processors."

Posted by: STAFF
The upheaval of the high-end desktop processor segment continues today with the official release of Intel’s latest Coffee Lake-based 8th Generation Core processors. 2017 easily been one of the most exciting years in a decade for desktop processors, thanks in no small part to AMD’s entire line-up of Ryzen products, including the monstrous Threadripper, which propelled the company back into contention at virtually every price point. Intel was at the ready with a host of ultra-high-end processors – namely the Core X series – that allow the company to lay claim to the fastest desktop

"Today marks the embargo expiry for reviews on Intel's new Coffeelake desktop processors. While a CPU refresh may not normally be too exciting, thanks to the pressure from AMD with their Ryzen processors pushing core counts higher, Intel is now upping the core counts in their desktop CPUs. Today we will be featuring Linux benchmarks of the Core i5 8400 and Core i7 8700K while this article is focusing on the i5-8400: a six-core Core i5!"

Intel Coffee Lake Core i7-8700K Review
     Mon, Oct 09 2017 | 4:02P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today’s review is of the Core i7-8700K, the Cannonlake flagship and highest-performance SKU at launch. Featuring six cores, each supporting Hyperthreading for a total of 12 simultaneous threads, at $359 it’s priced between AMD’s Ryzen 8-core/16-thread 1700 and 1700X. It’s also only a little over $20 more than the launch price of the i7-7700K, and so on paper is a big step forward in price/performance for Intel’s mainstream segment flagship.

Intel Core i9-7960X 16-Core Processor Review
     Sat, Oct 07 2017 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Earlier this week we took a look at Intel’s flagship Core-X Series processor, the Core i9-7980XE. Sitting right below it in the Core-X product stack is the Core i9-7960X. It is $300 cheaper and offers two fewer cores at 16 and with HyperThreading that is 32 total threads. The chips runs with a base clock of 2.8 GHz and boosts up to 4.2 GHz with two cores reaching 4.4 GHz with Intel’s new Turbo Boost 3.0 technology. On top of that you have 22 MB of L3 cache, the full 44 PCI-Express lanes, and support for quad channel DDR4-2666 memory. While the Core i9-7980XE beat AMD’s ThreadRipper parts, this chip is the real comparison as it has the same number of cores. In this review we will explore this 16-core monster chip and see how it compares to many other chips in Intel’s Core-X series."

Intel Core i7-8700K 3.7 GHz

Posted by: STAFF
Intel strikes back! The Core i7-8700K comes with six processor cores, plus HyperThreading, for a total of twelve threads. Overclocking potential is excellent, reaching 5 GHz on all cores, with ease, on just air cooling. Pricing is also extremely reasonable, with just a small increase over the previous quad-core 7700K.

It is time to check out the new six-core proc from Intel, yes the Core i7 8700K will be put through our benchmark paces and yes this is Coffee Lake, Intel's new mainstream processor that you will need to seat on a Z370 chipset based motherboard. The processor does a good job and manages to make a sturdy impression, as well as it being tweakable to 5.0 GHz on all six cores.

Intel Core i7-8700K and Core i5-8400
     Fri, Oct 06 2017 | 5:47A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel has rolled out its family of 8th Generation Coffee Lake CPUs along with the Z370 chipset. The headline news is an increase in core counts so Core i7-8700K/8700 have six cores and 12 threads, Core i5-8600K/8400 has six cores/ six threads and Core i3-8350K/8100 are quad core without Hyper Threading or Turbo Boost. It is crystal clear that 8th Gen. is Intel’s response to the eight-core Ryzen 7 and six-core Ryzen 5 1600X. Intel has a proven history of combining high clock speeds with superior IPC which raises a bunch of fascinating questions. Throughout our review of this new platform we used a Z370 Aorus Gaming 7 motherboard to give both the Core i7-8700K and Core i5-8400 a thorough shake-down. Spoiler alert: if you’re still using Sandy Bridge or Ivy Bridge the time has come for a major upgrade to your gaming PC.

Intel 8th Gen Core CPUs – Coffee Lake @ LanOC Reviews
     Thu, Oct 05 2017 | 6:47P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Its hard to believe considering we just finished up an Intel launch, but it is already time to check out Intel’s next launch. Kaby Lake was launched at the beginning of this year and the Mainstream lineup of CPUs is getting refreshed with Coffee Lake and Z370. This is the 8th generation of Intel’s Core processors going back to the original launch back in 2006. While I’m sure Kaby Lake owners aren’t going to be all that happy about the relatively early launch, but those who waited might be excited to find out that Intel has added cores to the mainstream lineup and is bumping up the entire product stack. As someone who is still building my wife’s Kaby Lake build, I completely understand the feeling. But as long as she never finds out her new PC is already out of date I will still be alive long enough to put the i7 and i5 CPUs that Intel sent over to the test.
