In comparison to the i7 6700, the i5 8600 is cheaper, newer, and it has better performance.

Waow, I had a m5 6Y54 before this monster, and when I launched windows first time, I had a mind blown! if you can have it for 200 euros, run faster than Sonic!

Very happy, runs fast. No reason to buy the 8th gen i7 over this as this is more powerful than 7th gen i7s. Just could do with hyperthreading.

Holy ...this is a monster of a cpu!
