Intel Core i7-8700 Review

Our friends and colleagues over at Tom's Hardware have published a review of the Intel Core i7-8700 processor today.

Intel's Core i7-8700 is surprisingly similar to the company's more expensive -8700K in our benchmarks. You do lose the ability to overclock, but save $50 dollars in the exchange. Unfortunately, Intel's bundled cooler isn't able to cope with the -8700's thermal output, which means you need an aftermarket solution to realize the CPU's peak performance.
