Excellent cpu with more pcie lane support and quad channel memory vs other intel or ryzen options. Good chipset upgradeability in the near future.


Poor

For serious user and good systems only. Provides more PCI-ex lines compared to 8700/9700/9900 basic CPUs. More upgrade possibility and future proof. More memory channels. Overall better than 8700K

Completely outclassed by the 8700k which is cheaper and faster. RIP Skylake-X??? In which section exactly is the 7800x completely outclassed by the 8700k? Also the 7800x is much cheaper than the 8700k. If you don't know what the f*** you talking about then don't talk at all.

Performing very nice, a bit hot though. Bought it instead of 8700k because I love that chunky 2066 socket.
