I think that you should maybe look at the official reviews....Fastest 8 core is the 11900K,
Best value for money is i7-11700K or the Ryzen 7 5800X, depends on personal preference
Agreed.I think that you should maybe look at the official reviews....
The 11900K isn't the "fastest" or the "best" 8 core processor. For pure performance the best 8 core processor right now is the 5800X and it is cheaper than the 11900K. In gaming performance you might find a couple titles here and there where the 11900K gets a win but overall the 5800X matches or outperforms it in gaming across a full gaming benchmark suite. To top it off the 5800X is selling on newegg right now for ~$450 and the 11900K is selling for ~$550... I would say the choice is obvious.
Honestly every reputable reviewer I have seen all say the same things about the 11900K... Too expensive, too power hungry (runs too hot), not enough performance vs the competition. I think its important to remember that the 11900K is retailing for $550 and that places it at the same MSRP as the the much more powerful Ryzen 9 5900X (also $550). The Ryzen 7 5800X is selling for $100 - $150 cheaper than the 11900K and pretty much outperforms it across the board. When you compare processors based on their price brackets the 11900K has to compete directly with the 12 core Ryzen 9 5900X and its just a bloodbath... The only "review" I've seen praising the "performance" of the 11900K is from userbenchmark🤣 I think we all know and can all agree that userbenchmark is a total joke.There are quite a few sources online wherever you look in addition to those posted above. Take off the Intel bias, they're simply not good enough right now. Hot and inefficient, the 5800x is easily the best choice.
Here is how the 11700K (stock turbo table, no power limits), the 10700K (stock turbo table, no power limits) and the 5800X compare with each other when tested with an RTX 3090.What is currently the fastest 8-core CPU for gaming?
^ This is good info.Gaming performance is primarily gated by the graphics card, not the processor.
A current gen processor in the $250 price class is going to do an adequate job for most.
Now if you are a professional gamer looking for the absolute fastest processor for 1080P gaming, then
5800X or 11900K are likely to be as good as it gets.
It may be that a particular game favors one or the other.
Here is a review of the 11400 which includes 5800X and 11900K
Look at the average 10 game performance.
The Core i5-11400F coupled with a B560 motherboard make for an interesting build configuration, as it's significantly cheaper than the Core i5-11600K/Z590 and less than the cost...www.techspot.com
Differences are minimal.
