[GAMING] 5820K VS 6700K - Page 24

In a few years I hope to see some 8/10 core xeons for $100 like what we're seeing with x58 today. Westmere 6 cores can be purchased for $60 since 2013 and when overclocked it performs on par with a stock 5820k.

I don't see the point of staying with quads when a hexacore only cost a bit more. With all the upcoming processors upping the core count and dx12 featuring load balancing all the potential benefits outweights the 5% ipc improvement.

And it's not like x99 is dead either, it's getting skylake too and all the xeons that comes with it.

dont need 6c/12t -doing only light transcoding/encoding once per week or so- but at 100€ more than the z170 platform it seems like a no brainer.

On the other hand though, i m a bit worried on the strain it will put to my thin 360 rad, my wallet and the fact that z170 is the newest cool thing:P I just need a liiitle push to buy the 6700k but i will punch myself if broadwell-e comes in 6months and complete negates the ipc difference tongue.gif

If you are replacing your current M5Gene, this is a no brainer, since you cant get any matx x99 board, that is as good as the m8g for example.

yea m8g is super sexy biggrin.gif there are a few matx x99 boards as well, evga micro2 would be my pick but its around 70€ more or so -and dont know if i can order from abroad >< -

i thought broadwell-e would be in x99 and skylake-e on a new chipset. No ?

That micro board is not nearly as good, as the m8g, even tough the micro costs 50% more. I would only buy x99m-ws if i had to, but the very limited availablity and experience with that board is also rather suspicious.

Hey guys. I just ordered the 6700K, Asus Maximus HERO VIII and 2x8GB G,Skill 3200mhz CL16-18-18-38 !!!! I can't wait to upgrade my 5 year old 2600K. I hope it will give me a decent FPS boost with my current GTX 980 Ti G1. Hoping for 4.7/4.8Ghz on air. thumb.gif

now since this thread is about 5820K vs 6700K, tell us why you went with the 6700k?
post #236 of 693
Because its a newer platform and it overclocks more than the 5820K which = less heat. Given the higher average overclock of the 6700K, i am pretty confident it will give me more FPS than the 5820K in most (obviously not all) games. Heavy multithreading is not very well utilized for games at this point and so i chose Skylake. wink.gif

I thought 5820k overclocks more?

I think the 6700k is worth about 200-300 mhz more on average

I spent an afternoon once comparing scores on 3Dmarks website and it looked like a dead heat i.e. I couldn't see a difference in scores. Maybe in a few months a new batch of X99 Broadwell-E when they come out with better memory controllers will tip the scale. I think I might get both though so if anyone wants to trade X99 for Z170 I have an extra board in mint barely used condition. Curse of a tech addict. Collect stuff 😄

Did we come to a conclusion? I'm planning on buying a 5820k and x99 pro 3.1 and Im not sure on which ram but 4*4gb, on black friday. Budget for ram is ~£120 any advice there would be great, its either lower timings and less mhz or higher timings and higher mhz, Best trade off?
