8700K & 9700K

Hi,

Is the 9700 K regarded as a true step backwards with this CPU not having hyper threading? -

8700K - 6C/12T
9700K - 8C/8T

Looking at the bases for these CPU's it looks like it's really even

https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compar...00K/4030vs3937

So are the 9700 K CPU's cores stronger?

So if both CPU's were used for a variety of tasks such as gaming, music, video and professional applications etc..... would both CPU's perform the same? - despite the 9700 K not having hyper-threading and 4 fewer processes?

There about the same performance. However, i7 9700k is a little faster in some programs. Intel Core i7-9700K, i7 8700k Review https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/...7_9700K/6.html

Between the two, I would chose the 9700k. Its an overall better chip. 2 real cores will always be better than 4 extra threads.

C2D 6750 -> C2Q 6600 -> C2Q 9550 -> i7 2600k -> i7 8700k
8800GT -> 8800GTS 512 -> GTX285 -> GTX480 -> GTX580 -> GTX780ti -> GTX980ti -> GTX1080ti

OK now I've tweaked a BIOS a little (and messed up sometimes)_this starts to get more interesting.

For ages I've read terms such as HT, (hyper-threading)_real cores_virtual cores_with abbreviations 4C/8T etc..........so on a CPU such as 6C/12T, the 12T are the threads - in the BIOS there is a setting "enable-hyper-threading"

is it totally correct the only way to use the power of the threads on the virtual cores is to enable hyper threading - if this is not enables the virtual cores do not work - Is this assertion correct? -(it seems like it but its good to check rather than assume)! - Thanks

If a CPU has HT then it's enabled by default. You don't need to enable it.

Intel i9 9900K Coffee Lake @ X8 5309mhz (+47.5%)
AMD FX-8320 Vishera @ X4 5022mhz (+43.5%)
Intel i5 4690K Haswell @ X4 5013mhz (+43.2%)
AMD X4 960T Zosma @ X6 4870mhz (+62.3%)

It is not called virtual cores it is virtual threads. Real 8 cores are better than 6 out of 12 virtual threads.
