Where are the 8700ks?!

 Share

I know the 8700k and 8600k etc have "launched", but where the hell are they??

B&H still has them as a "preorder"

Newegg has them only in iBuy systems....

 

When are they actually going to be available?

No one really knows, Newegg has been getting some and then they sell out instantly, rumor is soon, talked to a newegg rep she said december is when they expect to have full stock.

When Intel finishes ditching it's huge stocks of i7 7700k's that nobody wants.

 

Honest though, there are 2 small expected batches in November and December but availability should only really attend the demand next year.

I was able to back order one the day they launched and it is just now arriving today, they got more stock last Thursday or Friday however. I'd recommend going to nowinstock.net and adding the notifier for the 8700k to your list, it'll text/email oyu when they get in stock.

Novatech in UK have them showing in stock right now, but they are also priced way above expected levels. How bad do people want them?

 

Supply was never going to be great so expect pricing and availability to suck for a while yet.

I want them, just not at the historic price... :D It would have to fit better in line with Coffee Lake. In the lineup now, it is squeezed by the 8350k and 8600k. On that note, I'd argue 7600k is pretty much rendered obsolete by 8350k as latter has faster base clock and more cache.

For what is worth overclocking the i5 altogether since the skylake 6600k was already obsolete by going with a cheaper motherboard + locked i7 6700/ 7700 already, you gained more performance even at games for the same (or cheaper) pricing.

 

How is that i3 8350k treating you?

It is a fun benching CPU. Mine does an easy 5.0 GHz on high end air for non-AVX workloads. Obviously focusing on single thread tasks since it will lose out to 4c8t in scaleable stuff. I also have a 6600k as well as 2x 6700k, and I really don't feel a real world difference in them outside of benchmarks.

This is all great stuff to learn, I wanted to replace my i7 6700 for the i7 8700k though the scarcity of chips and mATX motherboards put a break on the plan... I did replace my old TITAN X Maxwell for a GTX 1080 Ti which was all part the plan... after checking the benchmarks and feeling utmost pleased with the GPU upgrade, higher performance for much cooler less noisy card, I decided the i7 6700 is staying for now.

 

Might have been more keen to upgrade if I had went 6600k overclocking route originally though, 4c/4t really finally began not being enough for a high end gaming rig but a 7600k at 5ghz for i3 pricing this 8350k looks like a great deal indeed, I do consider suggesting it over Ryzen 5 1400/1500x builds.
