Intel i7 6700k vs 8700k Comparison Will Blow Your Mind

Advertisement




There are many new processors coming out in E4 of this 2020, but many users do not have the budget to get a new AMD Ryzen 9 5950x or Intel Rocket Lake series processor. Intel i7 6700k vs 8700k comparison is the drip into the old and gold of intel processor pool – two mid range processors on which users can still depend on.

i7 6700k Vs 8700k Processor Overview

Intel Core i7 6700k was released on 2015, with 4.0 GHz base clock and 4 dedicated cores. Intel Core i7 8700k came into market 2 years after that, in 2017. The i7 6700k had 3.7 GHz of base clock speed which could be boosted up to 4.7 GHz, consisted of 6 dedicated processor cores. Both were based on 14 nm technology.

Intel i7 6700k Vs 8700k Release Dates

Intel i7 6700k, codename Skylake, was released on Q3 of 2015 with 4 cores and 8 threads. The successor  Intel i7 8700k was released in Q4 of 2017 with 6 cores and 12 threads. But later 6700k was replaced by 7700k and not being made by Intel now. Same happened with 8700k when it was replaced with 9700k from Intel manufacturing.

Intel 6700k Vs 8700k Benchmark Comparisons

In a nutshell, 8700k outperforms 6700k in almost all of the segments if we compare 6700k vs 8700k with same amount of RAM and HDD. The only place where 6700k performs similar to 8700k is the overclocked benchmark. But if we consider 6700k Overclock Vs 8700k then the Intel i7 6700k OC wins by a small margin.

6700k vs 8700k Performance Comparison

 

6700k Vs 8700k Gaming Performance

Intel i7 8700k triumphs in the gaming performance due to its greater number of cores and threads than 6700k. Although the overclocked version of 6700k gives similar performance with same VRAM for any game other than the most recent AAA titles or old games with more than medium settings in full HD 1080p graphics resolution.

6700k Vs 8700k 1440p Gaming

Intel i7 6700k comes with inbuilt Intel High Definition Graphics 530 series whereas the Intel i7 8700k comes with Intel Ultra High Definition Graphics 630 series. Without saying, the later one trumps the former. Now 1440p gaming is not possible in any game released after 2019 with the inbuilt graphics for 6700k or 8700k either but many old games in 2015-2017 era runs smooth.

6700k Vs 8700k 4k Gaming

Since both the processors were released before 2018, 4K gaming was not a trend back by that time. But both Intel i7 6700k and Intel i7 8700k supports mid to high budget dedicated graphics cards and 4k gaming is achievable by that. Although games in 4k will not run as smooth as any processor released after 2019 and getting a decent FPS in 4K may be far fetched as well.

6700k OC Vs 8700k Performance Difference

Being released 2 years before 8700k, the Intel i7 6700k is not a good match for 6700k Vs 8700k comparison. But a factory overclocked version of 6700k is completely different than the normal 6700k version, it is more optimized, more tunes and ready to deliver better performance.

6700k vs 8700k Specification Differences

6700k Vs 8700k Vs 9700k Comparisons

Intel i7 9700k is the latest from intel release in 2019, this processor is best of lot in the comparison of 6700k Vs 8700k Vs 9700k. Intel i7 9700k replaced the 8700k when it was released and gives a better performance all around. Intel i7 6700k is the lowest of the bunch, currently out of manufacturing by Intel.

6700k Overclock Vs 8700k Speed Comparison

Intel i7 6700k, when overclocked, gives a comparing performance against 8700k. Although both processors have a difference of dedicated cores by 2 and base clock speed by 0.3 GHz, the overclocked version compensates for the difference by boosting up the clock speed from a base frequency of 4.0 GHz to 4.2 GHz.

i7 6700k Vs i7 8700k Price Differences

Since both Intel i7 6700k and 8700k has been stopped by Intel, they are only available at ecommerce sites like Amazon and Ebay. Intel i7 6700k Ebay price is around $280 whereas Intel i7 8700k Ebay price is around $380.

F.A.Q. on 6700k vs 8700k

How good is the Intel Core i7-6700K for gaming?

Intel Core i7-6700K is a budget processor released in 2015, it has Intel High Definition Graphics 530 series, so it will not an ideal processor for gaming. Although along with a dedicated graphics card it will perform quite well.

6700k vs 8700k Clock Comparison

Is it worth to buy i7 6700k instead of i7 6700?

Intel i7 6700k, when overclocked, can perform better than i7 6700. So if you plan to overclock, it is worth to buy i7 6700k instead of i7 6700.

Does the i7 6700k bottleneck the 1080 Ti?

No, i7 6700k will not bottleneck the 1080 Ti, it will support the system.

Is i7 8700k overkill for gaming?

The Intel i7 8700k was released in 2017, so for today’s AAA titles, it is quite lagging behind.

Is the I7 6700 3.4GHz CPU good for gaming?

Yes the I7 6700 3.4GHz CPU is good for gaming.

What is the best, the Xeon X5670 or Core i7-8700K?

Core i7-8700K is mainstream desktop processor but Xeon X5670 is a server processor, so comparing both will not be appropriate.

Should I buy an i7-8700K and a GTX 1060 (6GB)?

Yes i7-8700K and a GTX 1060 (6GB) is a good combo for a budget level gaming computer.
