Which Processor i7 - 8700K or i7 - 9700K
« on: February 14, 2019, 10:20:09 PM »
Hi all,

I'm in the process on putting together a new PC for P3D. I'm wondering if anyone has any first hand knowledge of which is better for our hobby, the  i7 - 8700K or i7 - 9700K? They don;t vary much in price but the 9700 has an extra core but if I understand correctly doesn't support Multi threading.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Joe.

I have seen the 9700K in action in Prepar3d, and personally I find the 8700K has better performance than the 9700K
My opinion only.

The 9700k has extra cores, but the 8700k has a higher native clock speed and easily overclocks stable to 5 ghz.  That clock speed is important for P3D.  I am using the 8700ks and can recommend highly.
