Intel calls the 8700K, its best gaming CPU, and FireStrike, as well as CloudGate, reflect that. Cloud Gate shows the 1800X beating out the 8700K, so cores do count when needed, and the 1800X has more cores and threads.

 

UNIGINE Heaven 4.0 shows us that Intel's claim is once again substantiated at 720P, with the 8700K taking the crown at 720P. Synthetic gaming performance shows us varied results, and that is because all games are different.
