Can a $7 CPU (x3430) HOLD UP Vs. The Mighty i7-8700K?

After recently buying the $7 X3430 and running it through its paces, it really impressed me a lot, especially when coupling with mid-range graphics cards like a gtx 780, 970 and 1060 (3gb), so today we are testing with an Asus Direct CU II 780 overclocked and putting the x3430 at 3.8GHz vs the 8700k at 5GHz, in a showdown across 5 different games at 1080p, and the results may surprise you.
