9700k vs 2700x - differences besides gaming?

 Share

From all the benchmarks it does show that atleast at 1440p and even more at 4k, that chips don't matter. Whether the extra money on the 9700k at 1440p is worth is subjective. But is the 2700x better at certain things the 9700k isn't? Or is it simply the 9700k is slightly better at everything, but costs more?

Anything that can leverage more then 8 threads benefits on the 2700X over the 9700k. Just the same as the 9700k and 8700k trade blows on various tasks, with the slightly better clocks being the only difference in a lot of places. Intel's stock, and prices, likely won't normalized until December when they actually have a supply of Consumer parts for sale.

 

If you're just gaming/non-heavy core stuff, just get the 2600X. It's currently 180USD on Newegg because of the sales with a fully capable cooler. For the current price of the 9700k, unless you're playing CS:GO with at least a 1080 Ti, there's really nothing very different in it. Then, next year, you can upgrade to a better CPU with Ryzen 3000 series. That should end up being about the same cost for 2 CPUs as 1 would cost you currently.

Just gaming, sometimes I;ll convert movies to be able to play them on our Xbox but that's about it.

 

I'll be getting a 2080 ti.

Then get either the 8086k or the 9700k.
