    1800X
    I can replace the CPU in a few years without needing another motherboard. If Intel follows their past behavior, a new mobo will be needed in 2019.

    Try early-mid 2018, they're insisting on a new platform for their mainstream hexacore CPUs.

    Rumor has it the x390 board launches in 2018 to support 8C/16T mainstream i7s. x370 boards just now launching will not support these CPUs <ack!>. So yeah it won't even be a full year, again, between chipset/socket changes. We already had the 200 series launch this year to support Kaby Lake which was a 100 series refresh so at least we saw 2 gens of CPUs for the socket. Now the x370 for the shiny new coffee lake 6C/12T i7s, 6C/6T i5s and 4C/4T i3s...only to be told to get a mainstream 8C/16T i7 coffee lake in 6-10 months you need yet another chipset though same socket...the x390. Intel REALLY sucks on the chipset/socket front. AMD certainly has a win in that department making the R7/5/3 series far more compelling if your a constant upgrader. If you keep a CPU for 6+ years then the argument becomes moot. Regardless I would like to see Intel stop with all the ridiculous motherboard upgrades. Two generations should be the bare minimum between switchs and even that is a bit short, ideally 3-4 gens would be better. I get AMD put the presure on Intel with Ryzen but seriously 3 motherboard chipset releases in just barely over a year's time (by the time the x390 launches) is just ludicrous.

    But you still get plenty of people defending this on certain forums. The current defence seems to be that because they changed some power pins for CoffeeLake they needed to break compatibility, but surely no matter how much coffee they consumed to rush this product, there is now that they didn't know this back when the 200 series Kabylake motherboards launched.

    And then not naming the socket anything different so filtering for LGA1151 is not enough when looking for CoffeeLake boards. This will be fun (not) for the less knowledgable DIYers.

    I’m thinking about upgrading from z170 / 6700k to z370 8700k, but not for a few months. Not really interested in AMD

    Is it true that only gamers will buy the Core i7-8700K but for those who use their time properly making money such as video editing, programming and design will buy the R7-1800x?

    Both companies offer great products, but economics wise would probably go AMD, as it is cheaper to acquire... if it all comes down to that this variant do so you can do 10 or 4 more DPS here and there and the other one has some edge and vice versa...

    Go with what is the cheapest option of the two is my opinion and what I would do today.

    Re: QOTW: Intel Core i7-8700K or AMD Ryzen 7 1800X?

    The 1800X isn't a great value option, I wouldn't recommend buying it. I do recommend buying the 1700 or maybe the 1700X for slightly better odds in the silicon lottery both of which are cheaper than an 8700K and can be overclocked on a board much cheaper. Plus, as they weren't rushed out to release, they're actually available.

    AM4 being a supported platform for a number of years is also a bonus. Should be able to get a good upgrade at a later date if needed without swapping motherboards.

    Re: QOTW: Intel Core i7-8700K or AMD Ryzen 7 1800X?

    Since I am a FO4 player,the Core i7 8700k,even though I think the Ryzen 7 1800x and it's platform is better overall.

    Thank you Bethesda!

    Tired of getting over priced Intel and having to change boards all the time. I already have the 1700 and glad I bought it. The 1800x would be a great buy if it was the same price as the 1700x on sale.

    Re: QOTW: Intel Core i7-8700K or AMD Ryzen 7 1800X?

    For me, its 1700X. However i dont need any upgrade yet, so its just a pure vote.
    I must say i am amazed that people are upgrading 2 gen old intels to another intels, mine 3770k is still doing the job nicely.

    Anyway, since the core count moved, we can expect that more application will support paralellism better, and therefore AMD is just a better buy.

    I'd be more tempted to get a 8700k for consistently high performance as a gamer.

    Re: QOTW: Intel Core i7-8700K or AMD Ryzen 7 1800X?

    I will probably look at upgrading my i5-2500k to the i7-8700k at some point soon. I'm not really concerned about Intel changing the socket requirements as my current CPU/motherboard is nearly six years old, even if the cost is a little higher over similar time frames it'll not be noticed.

    You wont notice if you are running 110 or 100 FPS average in X game on ultra settings... not that am a fanboy but if it means can save alot of credits on CPU/Mobo then would defineately throw the extra money towards a more kickass GFX card instead or m2 SSD or something.
