With the NPB parallel benchmark and its embarrassingly parallel workload, the Core i7 8700K was positioned between the Ryzen 7 1700 and Ryzen 7 1800X. The two extra cores help out the i7-8700K a lot with it performing notably better than the i7-7700K and even the i7-7740X in the multi-threaded tests.

Though in Rodinia with the OpenMP LavaMD benchmark, the i7-8700K was coming up shy of the Ryzen 7 1700. As a reminder, the i7-8700K is priced at $359 USD while the Ryzen 7 1700 is around $300 USD but with eight cores rather than six.

While Ryzen 7 has more cores/threads than the Core i7 Coffee Lake processors, in tests relying upon IPC performance, Intel does much better than even the Ryzen 7 1800X.

The Ryzen 7 1800X is meanwhile retailing for about $400 USD. What is clear from these results though is that at least the Core i7 8700K is much more performant than the Core i7 7700K.
