Terrible (edit your comment) Add link

2 months ago.

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

21 months ago.

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


Excellent

2 years ago.

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.

It's new processor and it vorg well and I proud of it.

slightly higher launch price than a 8700k, very expensive motherboards though and lower clocks. pointless after the 8700k came out.

Completely outclassed by the 8700k which is cheaper and faster. RIP Skylake-X

140$ TPD + Huge Money for Sometimes Less than a R5 1600


Good

The overall performance for gaming and for rendering music is very fast.

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