Not worth upgrading, 4.6GHz 4930k is fast.

Now I have 3930K @4.8ghz daily, but 4930K sounds tempting to me ^_^ I can't afford X99 platform because it is too much money for me.
My tips is if you have enough money why not upgrading to the latest technology? But if you concern about how high performance will be gained, for rendering or gaming, ... etc then you will be stuck with 4930K. It is no problem for me either you choose stay with 4930K or buy new platform, as long as you have your money enough.

No, upgrading that CPU to another would be a complete waste of time and money for gaming.
