Very powerful processor. If you have the money, go for it!


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.
