i5 2500k 4.5Ghz vs 6700k 4.5ghz in games

post #1 of 48
Thread Starter 
Because nearly everyone dont know how much better is new skylake in games vs sandy bridge and still think sandy bridge=can match skylake in game i run some tests...

I already posted this in skylake owners klub, but every day someone ask how skylake is performing vs sandy bridge and he get answer its small difference so i creating this Thread.

Also use Frametimes and comparable FPS as primary.Fraps is here just for min FPS.

Test system:
2500K 4.5Ghz
8GB 1600 8-9-8 1T
GTX970 1500/8000
win7 64

6700k 4.5Ghz
16GB 2937 CL15 1T
GTX970 1500/8000
win7 64

If GTX970 dont bottleneck there is masive gain in games like crysis3-more than twice faster than 2500k
watchdogs 60%
skyrim 47%
WOT 37%
Witcher3 37%

Progress is progress, I guess.Thanks for posting. smile.gif
It might would be good to post ddr3+4 RAM speed and timings. wink.gif

Thats a nice comparison, but I'd like to know if you have a i7 2600K on hand, could you do the test comparing it with the 6700K or disable HT on the 6700K and run it like a true QC chip and then make these tests as these do not compare the gaming performance jump between a quad core and a quad core or a quad core with HT to quad core with HT.

i can give you an idea with a single 290 and my i7 Sandy . . . C3 1080 HT on and off . . .

Thank you for the comparison +rep.
I am shocked by the increase in Skyrim. From 38 to 56 fps, that's a 48% increase in a game that doesn't scale well with HT, impressive results there. I guess it is that DDR4-3000 memory. When I increased the memory from 1333 MHz to 2400 I got 10-15% jump with my i7 870. What mods are you exactly using that make the 2500K tank in cities?

Heyy....hope the trip was good. But what I find lacking in the findings is that the OP says that there is no reason to move from an i5 2500K (a quad core part) to a 6700K (a quad core with HT). I'd like if he can show these benches either with an 26/2700K or disable HT on his 6700K and then run the benches again. Otherwise, it's a solid comparison.

from sandy (i5 and i7) to skylake . . . i think it is really worth it unless there is some newer coming out soon. ddr4 cost is going down and that's another thing.

your country is beautiful. i am going back. thank you.

very nice compression! but it's not fair enough.. 4 Cores VS 4 cores + HT ... If you can test with HT off so 4 core vs 4 Core basically ( 2500K vs 6600K ) thumb.gif

HT ON/OFF its same.Only in crysis3 and watchdogs are differences.Its GPU bottleneck with skylake.(skylake is too strong for GTX970 even with HT OFF)

i7 6700k 4.6Ghz
3000Mhz DDR4 CL15 1T
GTX970 1500/8000

Same test method

With HT OFF 6700k is faster in crysis3 by 33% and 41% in watchdogs vs 2500k rest is same like in first post.
