It's actually the 2500k that is the most impressive.The only benefit the 2600k has over it is hyper thread,and not all applications use ht.

Is there a test with SLI or Xfire? Does the 8X make a difference?

Affordable hexas are nothing to overlook. Remember back to the days were duos were the 'gaming chip' and quads were worthless because they couldnt be fully utilized? We're pretty much at that point nowadays with quads/hexas. There will come a time where hexas are required, and even faster quads will struggle to keep up.

Think about something like.. a Q6600 vs an E6700 back in 06/07. The duo would have been the slam dunk choice, faster in every way. But try loading up both of those nowadays. The Q6600 can still hang whereas that duo is going to be struggling mightily.

Not really relevant to most of us I know. But for those who make a purchase and want to sit on that hardware for years until they can't anymore.. I'm willing to bet one of the cheap AMD hexas will give far more longevity than any of the faster quads out there now.

Maybe, but by then it would be upgrade time for a lot of quad users anyway.
I know I'm planning a build around that time.

I'm looking to build an i7 system soon, as I'd like the performance boost as well as I'd like to broadcast my games at 720p. Is it worth the upgrade now or should I wait until Intel's next generation of processors come out? I'm looking at the 2600K, by the way.
Thanks.

Personally I would wait , Ivy Bridge and socket 2011 with more PCI-E lanes (Asaik, might be an exception on certain LGA 1155 boards) will smash their mainstream SB chips.

I totally disagree with you

Q6600 is much faster in E6700 in multi-threaded application

But we can't say the same thing about Phenom II X6 against SB quad core. Actually i7 2600 is faster than the fastest Phenom II X6 in every multi-threaded applications. Even i5 2500/2400 can compete with PII X6 in heavy threaded applications, despite having two less cores and no HT. It is not same thing as comparing Q6600 to E6700.

The E6700 was Intel's 1st gen C2D CPU back in 2006. The Q6600 was release afterwards in, 2007. There was some improvements in the march. by then. It wasn't until later on that the G0 stepping was released. But not soon after the E8400 was released

The moral of the story is that in that case, you didn't need more cores to get better performance, it was Intel creating a better march.
