If you assume Intel uses traditional release prices for their unlocked mainstream processors, an i7-8700K would be about 40% more expensive than an i5-8600K. That's pretty substantial, but definitely go for the i7 if budget allows.
Hello? Who is talking about price ?
While that is not exactly how it works, we have the whole architecture to take into account and only a few people in the world know how it exactly works. For sure I am not one of them but I am 110% confident sure you are not
anywhere close to that circle... FIY this is overclock.net - We overclock to get more the most out of it and cinebench has been one of the top CPU benchmarks for years now.
Now, ill post another graph for those who care.
