i7-9700k or i7-8700k

Go to solution Solved by Jurrunio,

8 core 8 thread versus 6 core 12 threads, equal same all core performance. It's more of a choice between 'more expensive factory-delidded CPU', or 'cheaper CPU you have to delid yourself, or suffer from poor thermals'.

quick question would the i7-9700k be better for gaming or would the i7-8700k be better as the i7-8700k has hyper-threading. where as the i7-9700k does not.

 

Many Thanks

 Matt

Some games support hyperthreading and some don’t, most games don’t from my experience. That said the 8700k is the extremely better value considering most games prefer a more powerful gpu vs a cpu

They're equal in gaming, the 9700k is just easier to overclock high out of the box

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

They should be compareable in gaming, Hyper threading adds ~30% performance compared to non HT, and the 9700k has 33% more cores.

The main difference I would look at is price/availability and if you want to overclock/delid.

If you are are not willing to delid then I would go with the 9700k as 8700k thermals are not great without it.

Yeah, i don't/not willing to delid (not experienced). so i probably going to go for the i7-9700k
