    The Intel i7-9700K received ample criticism at unveil for its core/thread assignment, feeling like a departure from a decade's worth of hyperthreaded i7 CPUs. The oddest aspect of the change was not the 9700K itself, but its predecessor: Intel had just moved to 6C/12T on the 8700K, a fierce and competitive upgrade from the 7700K's 4C/8T configuration, but has now regressed to an 8C/8T part. It's a mid-step. With two more physical cores and a boost in frequency, the part will undoubtedly do well in gaming -- the question is just whether the value is there, especially with a price-hike to over $400 on the new i7, up from the $350 range on the 8700K. Further still, the 9700K drops four threads, which have proved advantageous in some workloads.

+savecityofheroes savecityofheroes You forgot one consideration. Market price. I came from a 6700k so its a decent upgrade. Was considering the 8700k as well, but the market price here in Europe had it $60-90 more expensive than the 9700k at the time I bought it. Therefore the 9700k won, and I am pleased with the performance upgrade from a 6700k. Newer CPU for a little less while roughly the same performance if not slight edge.

@Gamers Nexus, I'll admit I'm a bit disappointed in your benchmarking here. As you pointed out; OC is a question of winning the silicon lottery. So why you then proceed to test with 3 different clock speeds is just beyond me. It just gets confusing, and you get to a point where it only starts new questions. Like; Would your 5GHz 8700K match the 9700K at 5GHz? If so, then I'd be able to deduce that my 8700K, that does, in fact, go to 5,2GHz, also would probably match the 9700K when both are at 5,1GHz. Now I don't even know if my 5,2GHz 8700K will even match your 9700K at 5,1GHz... The baseline should have been 5GHz, the speed that both 8700K, 9700K and 9900K would be able to reach. Then sure, fill in the gaps with whatever max speed you got from each CPU, but then just for fun, or do the 9900K in both 5,1 and 5,2GHz as well. As I said; this video just opened up new questions, without really answering what you set out to do...

I think you showed some bias here by not showing the 9700k performance in games that actually use many threads well. The 9700k is essentially as as the 9900k in most of those cases and in some it is actually better. GTA V for example.

I have the 17 9700k, I upgraded from an i5 6600k OC to 4.2 Ghz. I must say...the performance increase I have seen in games like Kingdom Come deliverance with the same GPU has been INSANE. I am very happy with it, and personally I do not see the need to OC this CPU, is it really worth it to OC it for 0.1 Ghz?? Only thing I do not like about this CPU is the temps. Under max load I have not gone over 60 degrees, but the thing idles at 39-45 degrees. Just not used to that.

awesome vid. I just built a new comp after 8 years and went with the 9700k. the 8700k with a deal on some of the z370 motherboards you can actually save around $200. but since the jump from a 2080 to a 2080 TI is way more than $200, I felt like I might as well go with the newer chipset, seeing that I'm already not worried about upgrading other areas like harddrive/memory with that $200 difference. with a bit of overclocking it seems to be about a performance push (gaming wise) with the 9900k plus saving ~$150 but still having peace of mind with the OC temps.

I love how aswell as the CPU getting more and more powerful they are getting more and more expensive, same with GPUs. Isn't the whole point of a new gen to just be a similar price but more powerful so you there is a reason to buy the new one over the old one. Nobody seems to care much for the 9700k, and the 9900k is almost the same and seems to be what people are talking about but they are both twice the cost of what they should be, I understand why i9s exist but they shouldn't have an i7 labelled as an i9, a nerfed i7 and doubling their prices. In Australia the 9700k is $680, the 9900k is $900, my i7 7700k which I got 18 months ago and at this point the CPU is from 2 years ago, it was $450, the 8700k ended up being $580 I believe. The i7 7700k was a somewhat fair price, maybe should have been more like $400, the newer CPUs are not

I often encounter audio lags in my voiceover of gameplay recordings. Could that be something to do with those CPU latency spikes? I'm searching for a fix forever and still don't have an idea what causes these lags. Tried assigning cores or changing priorities for audio drivers, playing with sound recording settings etc... Suspect the CPU, because heavy multitasking seems to cause pretty bad latency spikes. Weird, considering multicore processors should probably do well with multitasking? Like, for a test, playing two games on one pc is possible at 70% CPU usage, but causes serious lag spikes. Is that caused by some hardware bottleneck or just poor software optimization? Thanks for any helpful info guys!

Over the xmas holidays, the I7 9700k, here in the UK, was £50 - £75 cheaper than the 8700k (depending on where you shop, and OEM vs Retail). I got my OEM 9700k for £350. At that price, you would have to be nuts to buy the more expensive 8700k. The £75 savings went on a Z390 motherboard. This thing is a beast.

With 8 threads I see you have thrown in an i7 7700K and it looks like there is only a little extra performance from the i7 9700K in F1. Far Cry 5 shows a definate improvement in average frame rates, however the 1% low is on par with the i7 7700K. Also, the needed 1.4 VCORE indicates that this is basically the same silicone. I am now looking with great interest at AMD's Ryzen 7 3700K with 12 cores and 24 threads at 5.0GHz and except for AMD's 40MHz 386 I have been using Intel since the advent of Intel's 386 days, where Intel led the market with their 33MHz 386 for 18 months and never got off of their greedy butts until AMD forced the issue.

my question is which one runs better temps, 8700k or the 9700k? From what I understand, they soldered the 9700k so WHEN you OC them which runs better? Because if you are looking to overclock and it comes down to whether or not you need to de lid that should be a factor as well. Thanks in advance!

I was wondering if the lack of hyperthreading on the 9700k is really going to make much difference on games in say 3 years time? Hyperthreading doesn't have a huge amount of benefit to the top framerates on games from 2018 but in a couple of years when 8 cores are more mainstream will it be able to stand up to other CPU's that have 8 core and 16 threads for example? I know it depends if hyperthreading truly catches on but it is shown in this video to definitely help with the smoothness with the bottom 0.1 low framerates and to stop stuttering. I almost suspect an AMD 2700x with 8 cores / 16 threads might even outperform a 9700k 8 cores 8 threads on games a few years down the line even though it wouldn't now on games from 2018. I'm worried the 8c 8t 9700k will be outdated just at quick as the 6c 6t 9600k without the extra HT.

Sadly I lost the silicon lottery with my CPU. It "just" hits 5ghz, on a 8700k thats kinda sad. It's only comfortably stable at 4.9ghz. whereas I've seen many people hitting stable at 5.1-5.2ghz. It's on water and even peak temps are pretty good. Sadly it just can't hack it for more than a test or more before it fails. telling people you're running at 4.9 just isn't as satisfying as saying 5.0ghz =P Price wise in NZD: 9900K @ 839.00 9700K @ 727.00 8700K @ 638.00

i like AMD's "segmentation-lite," where they soft-disable [possibly defunct] features (such as cores), where buyers are to assume they're getting the item they pay for, but can be pleasantly surprised when they get lucky and flip the switch back on to a working product that's better than they payed for. That's value-- and there's minimal wasted hardware. IMO.

For me (living in Germany) and with my Retailer of choice, (girven, i want to get myself a bto PC) the 8700K is a bit more expensive, than the 9700K. So even, if a 9700K does not make much of a difference over a 8700K, it (the 9700K) is still the better buy for me. And as an upgrade, compared to the Core2 Duo E8500 in my current PC, it is a no-brainer anyway, giving me roughly five times the performance. Sorry, but Videos like this are tailored to people with classic first world problems.

Being on a 2600k myself and watching your recent video looking at it again, then now seeing this I just had a thought. Considering the penalties applied to Sandy due to spectre and meltdown and the associated patches and updates etc, how much better would I still be doing than what is apparent now? I mean if the penalty was around the 30-40% mark and it is putting out this performance still, I wonder which chips it would still beat.

Why not include an OCd 8086K? They're far more overclockable than their 8700K brothers.

What bugs me most of the 9700k is the fact it clocks lower as the 9900k with mce on which for me is the only way to run a intel. High clockspeeds for gaming is what they do best.

Thinking of buying the 9700k from overclockers here in UK. OEM/tray prices for both the 8700k and 9700k are the same £369.

I upgraded from a 3570k and partly because everything else in the pc was failing (mobo acting up) and I had money to burn. Worth the upgrade imo as I only had 4.3ghz and on the 9700k I have 5ghz easy and much better temps (better cooler to be fair, a noctua nh15s vs some $30 cooler I forgot model number) I would overclock further but dont see point.
