Given overwatch is still 100+ FPS for me ill be sticking with ol trusty 2500k til at least skylake-E. Pretty funny how intel keeps jacking prices knowing some people have no concept of price/performance and just want the best money can buy lol.

Agreed. But my current haswell e processor is a poor overclocker so I figure I play the silicon lottery with broadwell.

It seems the sweet spot for me will be the 6850k. That paired with the rampage V edition 10 seems like a very sexy combination. Price is a bit inflated IMO but of the new batch this seems like the Best Buy.

Why do you think that over the 6800k (binning, stock clock, pcie lanes)? I am debating between the two.

Was planing on buying a 6900k, upgrading from 3930k.
But with these prices, and no performance gain.. Im scraping the whole thing.
So disappointing...

My personal opinion on this is for $150 you get a faster stock clock which may or may not yield better OCing. What is for sure though is you get 12 additional CPU lanes. With DX12 and the new 1080TI coming that $150 gives peace of mind that IF the x8 vs X16 GPU speed gap increases when using SLI I do not need to worry about it as both can run x16. It also allows peace of mind that I will not feel the need to upgrade for some time. But until benchmarks and OCing results are posted this may be a moot point but as of now that is how I am looking at it.
