Would this be a huge upgrade over an i7 6700K?

Kinda curious about this, too. Using a 6700k 4.5ghz paired with a 2080 and I've seen a bit of bottleneck on a few titles @ 1440p.

The vibe I get is that this would be a decent improvement in some cases, but a negligible one in others. I imagine that, as with most things, it'll vary per desired use. If anyone has a better idea, I'd be interested to hear.

6 cores vs 4, it's 50% gain even without considering the core difference. But if your bottleneck is display, you need a better graphics cards, the help from CPU is not that much.

Same question. But for video editing.

as always, it depends on your use case. if you want a bleeding edge overclocked gaming PC, the the 8700K. if you're a content creator and PC gaming is a secondary use, the 2700X

For video editing Id go with 2700x. Gaming may even be a tie but depends on title.

This being the standard 8700, you can't over clock it right?

No overclocking. With my Asus mobo I am able to put the base clock up 100MHz so I can get 4400MHz consistently on all cores with Turbo but that's about the peak you will get out of this.

Good processor. I imagine I will be rolling with it for some years. Don't use the stock cooler that comes with it. You WILL thermal throttle. TDP might be 65W but it goes well above that with turbo.

Hi hy_tek,

Noranni has given a great reference that I was also looking at.

I was looking at single core performance for my work, from that point of view:

The i7-8700K looks nice if you want the faster single core processing, and microcenter had that chip recently going for $319 ( vs $299 for the i7-8700 ), the i7-8700 for my work does not seem to be as worth while.

The real question you should probably look at is to see if you're hitting a ceiling on your i7-6700K

Excellent advice! Thank you for that. For me personally I'm going with a hybrid AIO liquid cooling system.
