The last two months in 2017 have been very busy times that many new Hardware were released. But Almost all CPUs and major platform upgrades that we expected to happen in 2017 has happened and any new upcoming CPU is going to be in early 2018 like the Ryzen 2nd Generation and highest end of Intel 8th gen CPUs or maybe new I9 CPU made by the 8th Gen, cause the current I9 CPUs are made by the older generations. So now is a good time to take a look at the options to go for with current available CPUs. We had an Article earlier about comparing The AMD Ryzen Thread ripper 16 core CPU that cost $1000 to Intel I9 $1000 option, and it did not go well for Intel. Lets see what are the best optioned in terms of performance and cost in a broader look. The best CPUs to make your PC and your wallet both happy. The competition is now at the highest it has been in last years, once again by the best processors released recently. AMD Ryzen is now rivaled by Intel’s 8th-generation Coffee Lake CPUs, which now havem more cores and threads than their 7th-generation Kaby Lake equivalents. Intel Coffee Lake introduced an entirely new chipset for 8th-gen Intel CPU, you’ll need a Z370 motherboard to go along with it.
Best CPU 2017 Is From Intel: Intel Core i7-8700K: Overclockable option with more cores than before ; Cores: 6| Threads: 12 | Base clock: 3.7GHz | Boost clock: 4.7GHz | L3 cache: 12MB | TDP: 95W | $407.99 | Hyper-threading seems to overtakes Ryzen overclocking, Overclocking only on K models are available Requires new motherboard, 8th-generation Coffee Lake-S launched to be best gaming CPU, it wasn’t wrong. This ’K’ series chip beats out AMD’s best. The i7-8700K makes hexa-core worth going for. The 8700K sports a base clock speed of 3.7GHz that is amazing an higher about 0.3 than amd base clock across all cores. It can has automatically boosted system for one core to 4.7GHz, two cores to 4.6GHz, or all cores to 4.3GHz done by the Intel’s Turbo Boost technology. Like all “K” models, it also has the manual overclocking as well. It has more memory built into the die with 12MB of L3 cache, but takes on a 95W TDP, and that is slightly higher than its older version 91W TDP.
Best high-end CPU Is From AMD: AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X, Crazy threads and breaking core records, Cores: 16 | Threads: 32 | Base clock: 3.4GHz | Boost clock: 4.0GHz | L3 cache: 32MB | TDP: 180W | $999.99 | Ready for the ultimate mega-tasking with a 16 core CPU? Easier to install than Intel on motherboards than ever into the socket of any x399 motherboard.. More power-hungry than Intel’s rival but it seems to worth it. When AMD dropped its Zen architecture-based Ryzen chips earlier this year, they thrived on the promise of a price-to-performance ratio. Now everything is changed with the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X, a chunk of silicon that’s a better value than Intel’s Core i9-7900X. Yes the main Rival of AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X in high end CPU market when you are talking about a $range CPU is the Intel I9 1900X and it has about 15 to 20% lower performance basically because of the lower number of cores. Intel has more high end options that beat the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X so bad but they go up to $2000 only the CPU.
