Why would that be? I5 8400 still good. I7 8700k offer 6c12t. The new i7 only 8c.
It's another topic when compare 8700k vs 9700k but if i buy Z390, i will buy 9th gen chip.

And, about 8700k vs 9700k. It's debateable to say which one is better in term of performance.

IMO, if im alr using 8700k , i won't be upgrading to 9700k

If I buy new one, I choose 9700k over 8700k any days. Why?

Performance diff is not noticeable. But what actual benefits for 9700k over 8700k ?

- Soldered IHS.
- Fix for Spectre & Meltdown
