2600k 8MB cache vs 2500k 6MB cache? - Page 3

HT does not increase the performance in gaming, however, 'apparently' it can affect performance.

Simples

Without the HT the 2600k is basically the same as a 2500k. This might help in deciding: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/287?vs=288

I've actually already read that graph and it does not answer my question (as HT is on). I'm already very much aware of the comparisons of the two CPUs when the HT on the 2600k is on. I've read just about every benchmark and review that Google will find for me.

Perhaps a better question is, what are the performance differences between the 8MB cache on the 2600k versus the 6MB cache of the 2500k? That is the ONLY thing that I want to know.

Renamed the thread to better reflect my question. Considering all things are equal, based solely on the cache increase? I am not asking for buying advice. Thanks!

Soley on Cache increase, they perform roughly the same, I think the 2600k gives maybe a half FPS extra. What's interesting though is that my Bloomfield outperforms my friend's 2600k by about 20 FPS, and that is when they're clocked the same. We both have the same setup with only different CPUs and Mobos.

So in other word you have the same GPU. CPU/Mobo are crucial pieces of the performance puzzle.
