Intel Core i7-8700K

Intel in September unveiled eighth-generation desktop processors, led by its "best gaming desktop processor ever" – the Core i7-8700K – which has a frequency of 3.7GHz and is capable of being overclocked to 4.7GHz, using Intel's Turbo Boost 2.0.

That six-core, 12-thread processor costs $359 and will help consumers with 4K video editing and multitasking – as Intel's Hyper-Threading technology allows the processor's cores to work on two tasks to speed up workflows and accomplish more in less time.

Intel said that its new desktop processors, which include the i7, six-core i5 and four-core i3 processors, can render video frames 25 percent faster than the seventh-generation chips.
