Intel 8th Generation Core i3-8350K and Core i5-8600K Review

HEVC

As we step up into a more modern take on the idea of video encoding, the two Intel CPUs gain significant ground on even the monster AMD Threadripper. Admittedly the 1080 and 2160 results aren't quite as glowing, but given how popular 720P is as a video format for sharing content and how affordable the i3 and i5 are, it shouldn't be dismissed.

depends on the games you play and if they are CPU bound but I would imagine the king of gaming CPU will still be the i5Quote

Well, I guess it's time to upgrade soon... The real question though is: is it worth to upgrade from an i7-4770K to an i5-8600K? Since I'm only a gamer and occasional streamer, I got myself the i7 back in 2013, to have the extra threads for the stream. Performance-wise it would make sense, of course, but would it be worth to upgrade for just 2 more cores/4 more threads, or should I rather save for the i7... Argh, decisions ._.

I guess the smartest way would be to wait for DDR5 and Intel's 9th or even 10th Gen, right? Considering how long we have to wait for DDR5...Quote

tbh when you factor in the new motherboard your gonna need and the DDR4 you may as well go Ryzen if you need multi-threaded and for gaming they are not that far behind in most titles very close in others and ahead in some. and at a much nicer price point.Quote
