Yes. Its a bad new buy today considering how much it costs. However, if price falls to ₹ 13,000 or less before GST than that is still a good price for an amazing CPU.The locked i7 7700 is such a bad buy right now.
Do your requirements call for maximum single-threaded speed? Or multitasking / threaded power?Welp, just bought a 7700K. 279.99 at Microcenter (plus 30$ off with a matching mobo). Didn't open it yet, though... Should I wait till Monday? I've sold my 3770K rig today and need a new build ASAP...
He posted what software he is going to use, and for the one piece of software that benchmarks are readily available for, 7700K outpaces Ryzen significantly.Do your requirements call for maximum single-threaded speed? Or multitasking / threaded power?
If it's the former, then good choice. If it's the latter, you've done screwed up, boy, and should have picked up a Ryzen 7 1700X for the same price. It has twice the number of cores and threads, and outclasses the 7700K in multithreaded software.
Didn't you know?...unless your machine is 100% for 1080p gaming, buying intel is not tolerated here.He posted what software he is going to use, and for the one piece of software that benchmarks are readily available for, 7700K outpaces Ryzen significantly.
With a price like that I'm not surpised somebody would just go for it.Welp, just bought a 7700K. 279.99 at Microcenter (plus 30$ off with a matching mobo).
It's more information release day, there won't be new options at microcenter to choose from on Monday.Didn't open it yet, though... Should I wait till Monday?
This confirms 4cores 8threads for at least one 'U' chip at 15watts tdp, with a base cpu frequency of 1.8ghz. The igp is an HD 620 with a base of 400mhz.LaptopMedia: Intel Core i7-8550U (Coffee Lake) – specs, performance and detailed benchmarks

I would like to point out, that i7 7700 has 3.6 GHz 4C/8T layout, and most likely, lower throughput than i5 8400.Confirms 6C/6T @ 3.8 GHz (4.0 GHz Turbo) for Core i5-8400.
Let's see how Core i5-8400, entry-level Core i5 from the new lineup (possibly <$200), stacks up against the venerable Core i7-7700K at stock...
- Core(TM) i5-8400 CPU @ 2.80GHz (6C 3.81GHz/4GHz, 3.5GHz IMC/3.7GHz, 6x 256kB L2, 9MB L3)
Multi-Media Integer 581.86Mpix/s
Multi-Media Long-int 214.11Mpix/s
Multi-Media Quad-int 1.91Mpix/s
Multi-Media Single-float 450.31Mpix/s
Multi-Media Double-float 256.77Mpix/s
Multi-Media Quad-float 10.26Mpix/s
- Core(TM) i7-7700K CPU @ 4.20GHz (4C 8T 4.4GHz, 4.2GHz IMC, 4x 256kB L2, 8MB L3)
Multi-Media Integer 564.53Mpix/s
Multi-Media Long-int 202.72Mpix/s

I say this as a Skylake-X owner: you're probably making the right choice.Well, after years of waiting to upgrade, I think the i7-8700K is going to be the path I choose for my main PC (assuming the leaks are true, which I have little reason to doubt). I was very close to pulling the trigger on a 7820 or 7900 but for the price difference, I can buy the 8700K and most (or in the case of the 7900, ALL) of an 8 core Icelake if I need to upgrade again sooner than anticipated.
