Intel Core i7-8700 Hexa-Core 3.2GHz LGA1151 Processor - (BX80684I78700)

The Intel Core i7-8700 3.2 GHz 6-Core LGA 1151 Processor provides six cores with each one operating between 3.2 and 4.6 GHz for editing digital content, streaming live gameplay, and running other types of intensive tasks. This 8th-generation Intel Core i7-8700 processor is built on Coffee Lake architecture and armed with 12MB of cache memory. The processor is compatible with motherboards that sport an LGA 1151 socket and an Intel 300-series chipset, so the CPU can provide up to sixteen PCIe 3.0 lanes for NVMe storage drives, graphics cards, and other high-performance parts. Moreover, it comes with Intel Hyper-Threading technology, which lets each core handle two instruction threads for running multi-threaded applications.

Intel has equipped the Intel Core i7-8700 processor with an integrated Intel UHD Graphics 630 chipset that outputs up to 4K visuals through your motherboard's DisplayPort and HDMI ports. When connected to a DisplayPort-enabled monitor, the Intel UHD Graphics 630 can produce 4096 x 2304 resolution at 60 Hz. Running under a 4K resolution lets you enjoy ultra high-definition videos as well as view more information onscreen when compared to working in a lower resolution workspace.

Ease of Use:


  • Not what I wanted but almost as good
    Verified BuyerReviewed by RobRadArtwork - 29 mars 2019

    Wanted an i7-8700k, they had none in stock as usual, wanted a 6500k, they didn't have that either! the last one they had (and last actual item in stock) was the this one. I needed a CPU so I took the plunge and got this one, fully knowing what I was getting. It works great, as expected. 6 Cores, 12 Threads and with the HT it ended up suiting my needs more than sufficiently. Now a month or two later, I still look to getting the 'K' version however this one works just as well. A little slower but for intense programs like Photoshop, Blender etc it is more than enough to stroll through these programs without a hiccup.

  • Great CPU!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by LightsUp - 16 février 2019

    Great move by Intel to keep increasing the core counts (physical and logical). This performs very well for intensive tasks and multi-tasking. Best when paired with 16+ GB of RAM. Hardly ever experience throttling, or hear the stock cooler spin-up. Cannot comment on gaming or video performance, but based on experience with Skylake and Kaby Lake processors, expect it to perform very well. Note: used Arctic Silver 5 thermal compound instead of Intel's.
