SiSoft Sandra 2016

Again, the 8700K and even the 8400 are showing some impressive results. In the Sandra MT testing, the 8700K results in a score that is 50% faster than the 7700K (which makes sense, it has 50% more cores and threads). Even the Core i5-8400 results in a higher score by 5% as a result of having 6 TRUE cores as opposed to four cores with HyperThreading. The AMD Ryzen 7 1800X and 1700X still score higher than the new 8700K, however.

Geekbench 4.0.4

From a single threaded view, there is no faster stock CPU on the market than the 8700K, jumping past the 7700K by 6% or so. Here, Intel now holds a lead of 35% over the Ryzen 7 1800X. For the multi-threaded portion of Geekbench, the 8700K is 24% faster than the 7700K and just edges past the Ryzen 7 1800X, despite it have more cores and threads available to it. 

Euler 3D

Euler continues to be an interesting test, at least for comparing Intel to Intel performance. Here, the 8700K is 14% ahead of the 7700K in the single threaded result, and peaks at 17% at the higher thread counts.
