Cool! It looks like the Core count and frequency is higher for the 8700K. I am curious though about the new Assembly Code Instructions (AVX, AVX2, FMA3, F16C, etc..). I wonder if or when WCG will take advantage of those.
Anyway, I am thinking of going two directions -- either buying old Xeon chips with multiple cores on the cheap, or going for a Ryzen 1700 and up (1700X, 1800X, Threadripper). I'm still thinking about it.
