Intel® Clear Video Technology Intel® Clear Video Technology is a suite of image decode and processing technologies built into the integrated processor graphics that improve video playback, delivering cleaner, sharper images, more natural, accurate, and vivid colors, and a clear and stable video picture. Bus Speed A bus is a subsystem that transfers data between computer components or between computers. There was a non-K Core i5 — the i5 7400 — which had essentially the same core configuration, but with a slightly lower clockspeed. Since the i5-8400 is clocked a bit lower than the i7-7700K, it's not quite a direct replacement, but as you'll see in the benchmarks, there are numerous games where the newcomer i5 beats the previous generation i7.

Another set of technologies improve the browsing experience and personalize it. While the K-series Core i7 8700K might have grabbed all the headlines, with its Ryzen-battling multi-threaded performance and 5. It's telling that Intel didn't even feel the need to send out the unlocked Core i5-8600K this round. Product does not come with warranty unless stated otherwise in product description. What's more, you can't bring your existing Skylake or Kaby Lake chip along and put it in a Z370 board. Prices are for direct Intel customers, typically represent 1,000-unit purchase quantities, and are subject to change without notice.
Lesson learned, even though a lot of sources may say the previous Intel quad-cores may be enough to give you a good amount of frames, the extra cores from the eighth gen can certainly raise the minimums. Move between programs and windows quickly. The full list of test platforms and hardware is up and to the right, but the only real change we've made for Coffee Lake is to swap our Z270 board out for a Z370 model. These things have 6 threads and 6 cores. Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel microprocessors. These functional cookies are required to use the site and complete purchases. Intel Core i5 8400 verdict Forget all the headline-grabbing overclocking figures, this is the Coffee Lake chip for gamers.
New, used, and refurbished products purchased from Marketplace vendors are subject to the returns policy of the individual vendor. Product may or may not be in the original packaging. Intel may make changes to manufacturing life cycle, specifications, and product descriptions at any time, without notice. Please work with your appropriate Intel representative to obtain a formal price quotation. If you're still running a 2nd or 3rd—or even 4th—Gen Core processor, it's finally time to upgrade. Along with the release of the unlocked i5-8600K, this is the first time that six-core processors have featured in the i5 line-up. We calculate which measures real world performance for typical consumers.
As for the Z370 chipset, in terms of features and functionality it appears to be identical to Z270—just with some updated microcode that only recognizes Coffee Lake processors. First, Intel is serious about locking down the clockspeed. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases. This compares reasonably well to the i5-8600K which has a base clock of 3. However, things change when it comes to the 8th-gen i5's. That's 2 additional Cores versus the previous generation for more processing power.
The Ryzen 5 1600 is the inflection point at least at stock , with the i5-8400 taking back the overall lead, and by the time we get to the 4C8T Ryzen 5 parts the i5-8400 leads in every test. Enhanced Intel SpeedStep® Technology builds upon that architecture using design strategies such as Separation between Voltage and Frequency Changes, and Clock Partitioning and Recovery. The information herein is provided as-is and Intel does not make any representations or warranties whatsoever regarding accuracy of the information, nor on the product features, availability, functionality, or compatibility of the products listed. Returned items with minor packaging defects fall under this category. The Z170 launch back with Skylake in 2015 was a bit rocky, and by comparison Z270 was smooth sailing. Unfortunately, for Intel, the second-gen Ryzen processors have closed the gap considerably in terms of gaming, which means they offer more for the money. Max Turbo Frequency refers to the maximum single-core processor frequency that can be achieved with Intel® Turbo Boost Technology.
Performance varies depending on system configuration. All information provided is subject to change at any time, without notice. That was why I was less excited about the prospect of the Core i5 8400, despite its extra couple Coffee Lake cores. Looking at the i7-7700K, it will run eight threads at 4. Even overclocking didn't work, and now I know it was due to the 4690k. However, warranty support may be available if an item was never registered by a previous owner. Intel processor numbers are not a measure of performance.
Product may includes warranty, and accessories found with the original product. . That Z270 motherboard you purchased earlier this year? Thermal Monitoring Technologies Thermal Monitoring Technologies protect the processor package and the system from thermal failure through several thermal management features. VeraCrypt also favors the i5, while 7-zip did better on the i7 though I admit the 7-zip numbers are more theoretical than practical. Video encoding is a tie, with a slight lead for the i5-8400 in x264's more demanding 2nd pass. Early benchmarks reveal that for average quad core usage most games employ a maximum of four cores the i5-8400 performs way above its pay grade. That means in addition to 50 percent more cores relative to Kaby Lake, you also get the same or higher clockspeeds.
Check with your system manufacturer or retailer or learn more at the Intel offical website. Most of the increase in average effective speed is explained by the 5% boost in base clocks from 4. If sold in bulk, price represents individual unit. As good as the i5-8400 is, the unlocked is potentially even better. Image 11 of 11 This time the newcomer i5 falls just behind the i7-7700K, but it's mostly thanks to the influence of a few tests where the i7's higher clockspeed comes into play.
