  • Abstract:  Does the new Intel i5-8600 spell the end for AMD's Ryzen CPUs? Let's find out! This 6 core, 3.1GHz CPU is locked, so no easy overclocking, but with solid IPC and good Turbo Boosting, does it matter much for gaming? Want one? Amazon: prourls.co/1hcf Produc...

  • Which processor now offers the most bang of your buck varies per price segment. If you have a very small budget, in our opinion it is best to find an Intel Pentium G4560, which, given its higher availability, is less of a challenge than it was a few month...

  • Abstract:  The overclockable Core i5 8600K always seemed like it would be the Intel Coffee Lake CPU that would steal my gaming heart. But now that the vanguard of 8th Gen Core CPUs are out, with the Core i7 8700K and i5 8400 bookending this Core i5 8600K, I realise...

  • The Core i5-7600K lost its place as the dominant all-round CPU to AMD, which offered far superior multi-threaded performance for the same money, albeit with a hit in some games. The Core i5-8600K's two additional cores do a lot to improve the situation, b...

  • When news first leaked of Intel's jump from four to six cores with the new Coffee Lake processors, the biggest question we had concerned the relationship between the last-gen i7 and the next-gen i5. Surely six physical cores could trump four, even if hype...

  • 6 core design, Great for productivity tasks, Exceptional gaming performance, Easy overclocking, Good thermal performance, Good efficiency
  • Requires Z370 motherboard,
  • PricingThe Intel Core i5-8600K is available now for around £340. That's a pretty decent price given the performance we've seen today, and it is quite a lot cheaper than the i7-8700K, which is around £480! Hopefully, we'll see AMD price more competitively...

  • Z-Series Motherboard requirement, Requires Heatsink
  • The Core i5-8600K leverages its extra two cores to great effect in threaded workloads, offering a substantial boost over its predecessor while aggressive Turbo Boost bins ensure great performance in lightly-threaded workloads. An easy overclocking experie...
