Gen 8As per tradition, Intel are moving fast, this year alone I have built in three different CPU generations from Intel: 6th gen, 7th & now 8th gen. Having built PCs since Intels first Pentium CPU, I can't ever recall having 3 generation changes in the space of a year. I don't blame them though, with AMD's recent launch of the Ryzen Threadripper series, they don't want AMD to have victory for long and will do whatever it takes to stay on top.
AvailabilityWith each new CPU launch stock becomes somewhat a nightmare to secure in large quantities. If you can't get your hands on an 8700k, it's now a great time to consider a 7th gen 7600K build instead, prices have dropped as suppliers are trying to get rid of the old gen stock.
