Just ordered the 6800k from newegg. Who's getting?
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.Originally Posted by ctepp
Mine is on the way. I'll follow up that review and see how far I can go under water.Originally Posted by Alwrath
Dont waste your money, it looks like Tomshardware has posted a review, and according to them Broadwell-e looks like a complete flop for gamers. Less overclocking headroom with insane power consumption and temps when voltage is pushed past 1.3 volts. lol @ intel. Looks like 6700k and 5820k/5930k are still the best choices for gamers till Zen and Skylake-e.

For whats its worth, I was really wanting to get the 6850K, however after reading all the reviews I WILL NOT. I have a great clocking 5930K now (4.55Ghz @ 1.26v) and will obviously NOT get that with Broadwell E... Might even loose a little performance.. Ill be sticking with my Haswell E and enjoy the money I just saved!!
