Thinking about the 8600K

post #1 of 49
Thread Starter 
The 8700K won't be a huge difference for gaming/streaming, right? So what will be the big benefit of having real cores over HT cores? Noticeable? Because 4/8 when compared to the 7700K vs 6/6 of the 8600K is only the real cores. Will that be noticeable? Or should I spring for the 8700K?

It depends on price and need. Assuming the i5-8600K will be priced around $250, you might be better off going Ryzen if you're trying to stream on a budget. We won't actually know until we see benchmarks next month. As for how much the extra threads will matter, quite a bit. Quite simply your system will have more resources available and more resources is rarely a bad thing.

I suspect the i7-8700K will be a better streaming CPU than the R7 lineup due to an IPC advantage. I think the i5-8600K will be a better gaming CPU than the R5 1600 or 1600X, but the Ryzen offerings should be better streaming CPUs since they have double the threads.

8700K +1

If you are going to stream the 8700k will be a huge upgrade from what you have now. The extra 2 cores should help you game and stream at the same time but if you want something bullet proof and don't want a 2ed streaming PC. Get a nice capture card Aver media gave me about an extra 10 to 20 fps in games when i streamed over without it

A capture card won't do anything for you if you're streaming PC games from a single computer. You need one for a two-PC streaming setup or streaming console.

This is incorrect

^^ I use to live stream for 4 years on both twitch and youtube and something like this
https://www.amazon.com/AVerMedia-Streaming-Definition-Hardware-C985/dp/B007UXJ6LE

IS HUGE for a single PC setup; I free'ed up a ton of cpu load by streaming off the capture card over a gaming capture or windows capture I had before and that gave me more fps in game as it wasn't being used as a single streaming setup

If you are not a huge streamer and doing it for fun the 8700k will be more then enough to game capture and game at the same time with a program like obs

I can't imagine a scenario where a capture card will help you on a single-PC streaming setup. It isn't capturing anything. Your CPU or GPU is still doing the encoding.

I imagine ryzen will still have a better lead for streaming vrs the 8600k due to the extra physical cores. However the 8600/8700k will be a good well rounded choice for both gaming/streaming due to its higher ipc.
It makes at least for a more sensible argument vrs ryzen for streaming

However If your very serious about streaming then the 1700 at its price will still be the better value for streaming.

Pretty sure the capture card does the encoding, unless you have a crappy one. That's what they do, capture and encode.

But on a single-PC streaming setup, the capture card isn't capturing anything ...
