2600k to 4690k worth of an upgrade?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
How beneficial would this be? I've had my 2600k since release and itching to upgrade. Will I notice the loss of HT? Mostly just use my system for Photoshop and web programming and some moderate gaming.

Benefits are small and not noticeable. Life cycle of DDR3 is nearing to its end. DDR4 will be mainstream next year. I suggest to wait for Skylake.

Not worth the money. You will get a small bump in IPC but lose the HT

Basically a expensive side/downgrade
