Intel Limited Edition i7 8086K
Better performance but not that much better The limited-edition Intel i7-8086K is a rather controversial model and certainly will not be right for everyone. In fact, a very good argument can be made that it is not even an optimal choice for most buyers. Firstly, is the price. With an asking price $40 more than the already pricey i7-8700K this is not an inexpensive mainstream processor. For a hundred and ten dollars less buyers can get an AMD Ryzen 7 2700X… that offers eight cores and comes with a pretty darn good cooling solution (another $30+ savings).
