     Tue, Oct 23 2018 | 9:03A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

     Mon, Oct 22 2018 | 1:58P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In October 2017 we raved about Intel Core i7-8700K and the watershed move from the quad core 7th Gen to the 8th Gen i7-8700K that came packed with six cores. In our conclusion we said “Core i7-8700K is fabulous and performs like a champ … It is painful to consider that if Intel soldered the package and allowed it to cool properly that we would be able to move to a new era of PC gaming.”
