    The AMD Ryzen 7 1800X wins by default. The Intel i7-8700k is out-of-stock everywhere.

    I'd go with AMD just because there'd be no need to replace the motherboard in the next six months, the Z370 chipset is nothing more than a 200 series with modified power circuitry to support a Kaby-lake CPU with a few extra cores.

    AMD ryzen 7 just to say FU intel for years of negligible improvements and needless forced mobo upgrades

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

    Neither thanks. Not because the CPUs aren't good, they're both great performers, but because both platforms are utterly gimped for anyone who wants 16X for the GPU, an 4X M2 and have one or more additional cards which needs 4X or better.

    1800x next year when its on 12nm, or even now, if you want to pump up the NB Core voltage, which bring AMD to life

    the i7-8700k has nothing much on the ryzen in standard benchmarks

    1800X clearly wins right now.

    The choice is more cores or more lanes from a company that has had its offices raided countless times for breaking anti trust laws....
    Facts don't exist, only interpretations.

    Ryzen, purely for the part about not requiring a new chipset / mobo every single time you want to upgrade. Intel do themselves a disservice.

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

    Intel. But very begrudgingly.

    I just want a CPU that is a meaningful improvement over my 2700K on an IPC basis. I know some day I'm going to have to spend £600 (CPU/mobo/RAM), and it really pees me off. It's 6 years old as of now, and it's still nothing more than a minor improvement.

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

    Ryzen, both for the mobo/upgrade path issues, and an FU to the general "squeeze the sheep for money" mentality Intel has.

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

    If I was going for either, it would be Ryzen. Performance wise, there isnt much in it right now, but AM4 socket is just a better long term prospect wheras we can say with almost 100% certainty that intel will change theirs after maybe 1 gen.

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

    if i did not already have a ryzen 5 1600, i would try for the intel i5 8400 cause of the price and core count. it would be the first time in over 15yrs that i would own a intel chip. since i already have the motherboard, my next upgrade will be a ryzen 7 1700. i will give intel a big ups for finally moving away from convincing the world that 4 cores is all you need for most of your work. im still going to remain a AMD fan.
