Vending machines like this usually sell small toys, but this one is loaded with older Intel processors generations. Japanese YouTuber Sawara-san purchased an Intel Core i7-8700 processor after giving the machine 500 yen (about $3.25) and returning the handle. The operation of the chip was checked, and it turned out to be flawed.

Toy vending machines are very popular in Japan and other Far Eastern countries. Typically, these machines sell small plastic toys that are dispensed after the user inserts cash and returns the pen. The machines usually have a Hello Kitty or toy car theme – you know what type of item it will spit out, but you don't know which one. In this case, the machine definitely has Intel processors, but it is unclear what other chips it might have.

The machine appears to be located in front of or inside a computer store called 1’s PC. Google says it sells a wide range of new and used PC components, as well as cameras, media, software and the like. The vending machine can be a fun way to provide a little entertainment for visitors while also getting rid of old or broken processors.

The new 2018 Intel Core i7-8700 should perform almost as well as the unlocked K-series version in real-world tests. In 2024, its 6C/12T configuration, 4.7 GHz clock speed and Windows 11 compatibility is still a good option. But this particular chip behaved a little worse: after passing the system test at startup on a system built on an i7-8700, the processor booted into the BIOS fine, but then problems arose.

At first the video did not work properly and the Windows installation process failed. After reconnecting the monitor, the system showed that only 5 processor cores and 10 threads were working. Despite problems with one of the cores, the chip was still able to run Windows, pass the system information check and complete the Cinebench R15 and R23 tests.

The processor received a score of 992 in Cinebench R15 – a fully working sample performs significantly better with a score of 1420, but part of the difference may be a different system configuration. But even a 5-core processor would have to score approximately 1183 points. A used Core i7-8700 from the same store sells for 13,800 yen ($90) with a three-month warranty, so Sawara-san was happy with his $3.25.
