Supplies are extremely limited around the world, and despite being officially launched, the Core i7-8700K specifically is not likely to be available in India in any meaningful quantities till mid-November. Branded PCs with these CPUs aren't even being announced internationally yet. Because of pricing, the channel might be trying to flush quad-core ...
The Core i7-8700K is an impressive retaliatory blow to AMD’s Ryzen. It comes at an attractive price, on an already well- established platform, and unless AMD can really drop the price points on its Ryzen components, it makes far more sense for everyday upgraders to opt for team blue over team red, at least until Ryzen 2 arrives next year.
Ultimately, if you want the best overall performance and don’t want to invest in a high-end desktop system, the Core i7-8700K is the fastest CPU around, and is supremely lustworthy as a result. However, it doesn’t have everything its own way.
