The latest Core processors from Intel have launched: the 8th generation of this series, code named “Coffee Lake”. This brings with it the first six-core CPUs in Intel’s mainstream processor line, so we are taking a look at how they perform in Solidworks 2017. For comparison, we also have results from our previous recommendation for modeling and CAD: the Core i7 7700K “Kaby Lake” chip.
Intel has launched their 8th generation of Core processors, code named “Coffee Lake”. This includes the first step beyond quad-core CPUs for Intel’s mainstream processor line. We are taking a look at how these new CPUs perform in Autodesk Revit 2018, compared to the previous 7th generation “Kaby Lake” Core i7 7700K and a couple of AMD’s Ryzen 7 chips.
