According to the preliminary (NDA) and pulled down tests, Skylake is good for syntetic benches (109% over i7 4790K):

...but it sadly and surprisingly lose (4 tp 6%) in gaming tests to i7 4790K:

Sure, Anandtech is trying to cover this debacle, using an i7 4770K to unfair comparsion and ComputerBase tweaked the results to make Skylake look good (1% faster that i7 4790K) by throving syntetic benches in the mix, but gaming tests show that i7 4790K wins.

Only in Total War: Attila Skylake with GTX 980 Ti combination wins slightly faster result.

At least the TDP get from 95W lovered to 91W (only marketing change?). OTOH the asking price will be 350$ for i7 6700K and i5 6600K will be for 243$.

Who cares if it does not beat the 4790k.
It is better too see how it really does against Ivy and Sandy. Those are better to see if an upgrade is better.
Anything before Sandy would be a an upgrade.

5820k and x99 the way to go for upgrades.
wont do 5ghz with skylake, fail IMO.

Your site is testing incorrectly.

Finally, x264 encoding performance where you see 4.5ghz i5 6600k match a 9590 @5ghz
vM14zRW.png
^This is often tested wrongly, because reviewers use a 5 year old encoder version with a popular benchmark that is terrible and doesn't show performance improvements that newer CPU's have from avx2 etc. This test is accurate.

and IPC gains of 11.9% over Haswell, 37.7% over sandy bridge

can we stop pretending that skylake is a disappointment? It's exactly what i expected plus a little more (was erring on the cynical side). There's no need for this drama on every new CPU release when tock to tock it's not all -that- bad, especially considering that you'll probably get ~5% more from clocking 200mhz higher than Haswell (especially non-DC)

Sure, it should be 6 core. It could be faster - but it's here and it's NOT slower than a 4790k.

I don't believe in "good enough"~!!

240hz / gsync / low persistence is AWESOME

Yeah, because clocking a Sandy Bridge lower than anything else is doing things right.

I agree that Skylake is strictly a common tock, neither good or bad but that polish site is a joke.

They have several pages of tests with SB/HW/SL at the same clocks. In that case i'm not sure why no 4.7ghz sandy bridge on those gaming bench pics but i never even looked at that because 4.7ghz Haswell and Skylake are both there.

A joke why? It's the best skylake review out there. It's like 30 pages of stuff that's way more accurate than what most of the reviewers are posting. Actual non-GPU-bound tests, straight clock for clock IPC comparisons at 3ghz and 4.5ghz, etc.

Those tests are strange. Stock skylake witcher 3 is 113fps, while ovetclocked to 4,7 is... 114fps.

Because it's GPU bound so useless as a test between a 4790k and 6700k

Then why Crysis benches show the same? Welcome to the jungle is extremely CPU bound, and yet its just 1fps gain (which is in the margin of error).
