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.
