i7-7820X or i7-8700K

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I`m planning to get a new PC for simming next month after the new GPUs are out (I´ll get a 1180 if the miners leave some) and  I was pretty much decided for an i7-8700K at 3.7Ghz but then I saw many simmers with an i7-7820X 3.6Ghz. And now I`m not sure which one is best for P3D4 and XP11, having in mind that I fly in VR only.

Then I saw that the i9 9900k is coming by the end of the year, but that one (guessing) will be around the 1000 euros range, right? that´s too much for me...

Any help on which processor is better without having to sell my car?

cheers

 

Carlos

Carlos - From what I'm reading, estimates are the 9900k may be in the $450-$500 range and the 9700k down around $350-$400.  No one knows this for sure, but those are estimates flying around.  That said, and based on your comments, I would definitely wait a month or so to see what is released and the price point.  When you also consider one or both the 9xxx series CPUs may have a soldered IHS (integrated heatspreader) versus the previous inferior thermal compound Intel have been using (link), you would have better thermal control and performance.  If you decide to go this route, it is recommended to couple the 9xxx CPU with a new Z390 chipset motherboard (to maximize O/C potential), although it is expected to maintain compatibility with Z370 chipset boards.

Thanks Doug! 

If the range is around 400-500$ (or euros) I´m definitely in. That´s what an  i7-7820X 3.6Ghz costs here right now (460euros) and I was ok (more or less) with it.

I´ll wait a couple of months to see where it leads, but now the idea of a 9900K with soldered IHS is very very attractive.

Thanks again!

The best thing to do is take a I7-8700K. The I7-7820X is really more expensive then a I7-8700K. In game it has got worse performance than I7-8700K and it hasn’t got the integrated cpu.

Thanks Bruco!

Pretty much decided on getting an i9 9900K when it´s released, unless its price is ridiculously high or it´s delayed. I´d get a 8700k in that case.
