So according to the list, I should get the i7-8700K. Oh, wait. I already have it, so I guess I'm good.

Well the rumour is that intel are to release an I7 8086K 4ghz base to 5hghz OC. 

In fact its on tomshardware about the new chip boost upto 5ghz.

Same.  Its great to be on the top of the list.....too bad its such a short period of glory before the inevitable slide down the list until the next upgrade.

Speculation is that's its a 8700k binned, have they replaced the paste😁 and welded the heat spreader, will be interesting to see what debar gets this up to. 

Intel are touting it as the first 5ghz CPU, we know other CPUs can do this but that's clocking past the specs.

I just bought the computer from Jetline Systems last March, and that processor was the only option they gave me, so it's certainly not getting replaced anytime soon.

A shame that there is no direct comparison with slightly older CPUs (like my i5 4690k). It's all very well comparing the latest batch of CPUs, but most people are interested in how much more powerful these CPUs are when compared to their existing systems.

Having said that, it is nice to see that the i5 8600k is so close to the top mark that the $100 price difference becomes significant.

No need to get the wallet out here. My old 4790K (4.7Ghz) still runs FSX/P3D as well as anything on that list..........Doug

Although it doesn't actually include your CPU, there's an interesting comparrison here: http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/intel_core_i7_8700k_processor_review,7.html. They have a good cross section of the latest CPUs with some popular older models. The single thread chart is with the processors running at stock speed. The IPC/Single Thread chart is with all processors running at the same clock speed so gives a better idea of comparative processing power.

The problem with the Tom's Hardware article is that, as they admit in the "How We Tested" paragraph, they've guessed at how some of the newer CPUs might perform. To make things worse, they say in the previous paragraph that some chips perform unexpectedly better than others so it's hardly an accurate comparrison. At least with the Guru3D article the results are all based on actual tests.

Iam not intrested in the 6core binned one, have a nice 5.3 binned  8700k

more intrested in the 8core 9700k or what the name gone bee, answer at computec ?

Nope, according to OCUK here in the UK it's still TIM.

You wanna compare to my 8600K:

My cinebench: 1330/226

3dmarko6: 50786

realbench: 170,000+

aida64: read 61MB+ / write 62MB+ / copy 53MB+ / latency under 40ns

cpuid: 605/3300+

 

If anyone wants a FPS P3Dv4 scene capture let me know.

I'll give you this, as I upgraded from a similar cpu: I went from 10 hours a week in the cockpit to at least 20 hours a week -probably more, as my wife and daughter are actually complaining now that I spend too much time on the puter. Yeah, and I'm still using the same scenery with pretty much the same settings as was used with the Haswell.
