Intel Core i7-7700k VS AMD Ryzen 5 1600X
Seems like Intel cannot be beaten when it comes to CPUs. AMD’s Ryzen 5 1600X holds up when it comes to rankings(kind of), as it’s #31 out of 980 CPUs tested. The i7-7700k holds the 13th position as of now.
Intel i7-7700k = 280$
AMD Ryzen 5 1600X = 240$
Are 40$ making the difference here? Let’s see.
In this case, yes. 40$ are making the difference.
Intel Core i7-7700k vs Intel Core i5-8600k
How about when we compare one Intel to another?
i7-7700k’s rank: 13/980
i5-8600k rank: 8/980
So far we can already tell which one’s better. How about the price?
i7-7700k’s price: 280$
i5-8600k’s price: 277$
Not much of a difference when it comes to price. Let’s compare them.
Same price, but slightly better performances in favor of the i5-8600k. Overall, they are both good CPUs. They will both do GREAT when it comes to gaming.
The i7-7700k is worth every penny. You’ll never have gaming problems with it(as long as your GPU can handle it too).
Don’t hesitate. GG izi.
