The Ryzen 7 2700 is an 8 core, 16 thread high-end desktop processor featuring AMD’s second generation 12nm Zen+ architecture and Precision Boost 2 technology. It is the second strongest of four new Ryzen CPUs due for imminent release. The second generation Ryzen processors, codenamed Pinnacle Ridge, are both compatible with the new 400 series and 300 series of motherboards. Official specs for the 2700 are yet to be seen, but early benchmarks appear to indicate base and boost clock speeds of 3.2 and 4.1 GHz respectively. This translates to a modest improvement upon the previous generation 1700 which continues to offer fantastic value for money in terms of multi-core performance. The expected retail price of $299 includes a Wraith cooler and costs the same as Intel’s 6 core 12 thread i7-8700. As expected, the 8700 beats the 2700 on single and quad core intensive tasks, but lags behind for higher core workloads.  [Apr '18 CPUPro]

The high-end hex core, 12 thread i7-8700 is second in Intel’s line up of 8th generation Coffee Lake CPUs that witnesses an increase in the number of cores at each SKU, as well as further refinement on the 14nm architecture as seen in the 6th and 7th generations. The i7-8700 features a TDP of 65W, 12MB of L3 Cache and 16 PCIe lanes. Although the 8700 has a base clock of 3.2 GHz it has an all core boost of 4.3 GHz and a single core boost of 4.6 GHz. These are unusually high clocks for a non-K SKU, Intel have historically clocked their non-K SKUs around 10% lower than the flagship K variants but with Coffee Lake, the 8700 is almost a match for a stock 8700K. Priced at $320, the i7-8700 offers exceptional single, quad and multi-core processing power to the mainstream market but unfortunately a new 300 series chipset will also need to be factored into the purchase. AMD’s comparably priced Ryzen 7 1700X is an 8 core 16 thread processor which is around 20% faster at multi-threaded tasks, but has around 20% slower single and quad core performance so the choice between these two processors is use case dependant but generally favours Intel for most desktop users whose workloads are typically single or dual core bound.  [Oct '17 CPUPro]
