    It's almost like AMD doesn't realize just how much they are winning against Intel.

    EDIT: Intel responded via its official verified @IntelGaming twitter account, saying:

    ".@AMDRyzen, if you wanted an Intel Core i7-8086K processor too, you could have just asked us. :) Thanks for helping us celebrate the 8086!"

    AMD really outta leave the dastardly plots and snide remarks to Intel, Intel are just so much better at it. :D

    I was looking at a per month chart, tracking binning over time. They are still worse than launch.

    That would mean that the quality of silicon has dropped over time since the original release, making the available pool of 8700k's "binned" to re-badge as 8086k's of poorer quality than release 8700k's.

    That must be why the "binned" 8086k's are no better than a random pick of 8700k's, answering why the 8086k stock and OC performance is no better than a randomly selected 8700k.

    What a rip-off the 8086k is turning out to be...no better than a random 8700k, yet being sold for $75 more than a stock 8700k.

    From what I have seen the 8086k is around a bit better than the release batch where they were being more picky.

    More FUD.

    For the truth, see https://fuse.wikichip.org/news/1412/core-i7-8086k-overclockability-silicon-lottery-stats/

    You are partly correct as explained in the article @Donald@HIDevolution posted, the first batch of 8700k's were particularly good, but there were improvements in the subsequent 8700k production batches as sampling showed.
    The "FUD" started with @Meaker@Sager :)

    I was responding to his hypothesis that the 8700k quality has gotten worse since release:

    "I was looking at a per month chart, tracking binning over time. They are still worse than launch." - @Meaker@Sager

    He was responding to my post where I posited that the 8700k had gotten better OC binning results over time due to improved processes - better yield and better quality silicon.

    "More likely the production process has improved from beginning shipments of the 8700k until now, and both 8086k and current 8700k are benefiting from the process improvements."
    Thanks for confirming I was correct in my estimation in the first place, the 8700k silicon got better as Intel improved their process over time. And, Meager was partially correct, the first 8700k batch were cherry picked for best showing at release.

    "8700Ks Got Better
    There have been speculations that Intel is taking out the best binned 8700K to sell as 8086Ks, leaving only inferior silicon to sell as 8700Ks. Silicon lottery numbers for the 8700Ks show that this is not the case. In fact, the 8700K binning has improved since December last year.

    The high percentages from November last year can likely be attributed to Intel taking extra caution due to higher variations in early silicon which can also help explain the low availability of initial Coffee Lake SKUs from November."
    Reviewers are finding out first hand that the 8700k and 8086k random picks have the same performance and OC headroom - no 5.3ghz gems reviewed that I have seen:

    The 8086k Review
    8700k and 8086k both max OC @ 5.1ghz

    Published on Jun 17, 2018


    A couple of Silicon Lottery test bench 5.3ghz gems after sifting through trays of 8086k's doesn't mean anything if reviewers and real owners aren't finding them to review.

    There is No fear involved, no Uncertainty, and No Doubt, it's a waste of $75 to buy an 8086k gambling on getting better performance than a random pull from new 8700k stock.

    Good luck to those of you willing to gamble your $75 on an 8086k on a chance for a 5.3ghz+ gem!!

    If you do, please come back and let us know what your best stable OC is on your new 8086k. :)

    Update: Here's another attempt to OC an 8086k, results? 5.1ghz... at high voltage, so they settled for 5.0ghz all core OC.

    And, their 2 part video, at Part 1 @ 1:06:10 "...the $75 upcharge is just not worth it"...of course he was a bit bummed at that time that he wasn't able to OC to where he wanted...listen in to his frustration and disappointment...

    Depends on the person. What you like doesn't always be the same for others... https://uk.hardware.info/reviews/83...e-best-choice-overclocking-i7-8086k-at-53-ghz
