Now with 8600k coming in at pure 6cores.
Than extra 2 cores will negate any gain on ht that a 7700k had.
Y do you think when game engine that doesnt use HT a 7600k for example will destroy a 7700k.
Any further discussion at this point is useless. Just wait and see the benchmarks. At that point the brainwashed will finally have the same feeling some christians reach when they swear by "Jesus is their Saviour". Cleansing.
Only benchmarks from digitalfoundry .. one can draw a conclusion. So wait for it.
Not brainwashed. Personal experience. HT helps alot in some games. HT can handle background tasks too. No HT meaning these background tasks will draw power from the main cores that the game use and this can result in dips.
HT on earlier 2C i3's also saved the gaming performance, or newer Pentiums. Disabling HT on these and fps dropped ALOT. So maybe you are the one brainwashed. I've personal experience with this. Very easy to test.
The i5-8600K might perform "good enough" in the beginning, but in a few years, the exact same thing will happen. The i7-8700K will start to pull ahead because of HT.
The i5-7600 does not destroy i7-7700K in ANY GAME, clock for clock / overclocked.
i7 also has more cache.Edited by Lass3 - 9/26/17 at 2:54am
