6600K or 6700K

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Hey,

Should I get the 6600k or 6700K?

Usage:

- Work , alot of remote desktop ..

- Photoshop, no heavy rendering. Mostly webdesign stuff

- Gaming

- Internet browsing

Thats about it I guess, I am just wondering what to get can't decide, feels like I really really don't need the i7 ... all I can see it being better if I would render but I don't and even than still.

Also trying to make a silent workstation so the temps might be alot better on the I5?

In your case I would just go with the I5 6600k and put a decent O/C on it.

That is a good question man. I am in a similar situation since I will RMA my 4930k and I hope that I will get a refund. On one had I dont want to make the same misstake as I did last year i.e. overspending on a cpu with more cores just to hope that games will take advantage if it. On the other hand there are notable differances at 1080p between a 6600k and a 6700k in games that use more than 4 cores. I personly think the 6600k and 6700k are expensive to be honest.

You do understand how DX12 will work, right?

DX 12 is still very new and really. We don't have all the data to see how its going to be long term. Also more developers will need to pick it up and use it. So right now only a handful of games if that.

ATM we only know how it should work but that is all.


Personally I hope they do move it up to hexa core+ since I'm looking at the I7 5820k but I don't expect it to happen anytime in the next 2-3 years for it going mainstream.

I am going to use 1440p or might get a widescreen later on, I only play CS GO for now...

Its just that I can't seem to justify why I would take the i7, sure it will gain me a little more FPS? But I am not doing any rendering so don't know how much it would benefit me. I rather save some money and get an M.2 ssd soon.

DX12 will use up to 6 cores for processing graphic draw calls, as well as the new AMD interface

for CS GO thre wont be an adavntage

now for dual gpus setup and CPU bound scenarios, plus games that can use more than 4 cores/thread the HT will be the best bet
