    Default Intel "Skylake" - First i7-6700K Benchmarks

    Intel's next major CPU architecture, codenamed "Skylake," could be classified as the company's 6th generation Core processor family. It will succeed the brief stint Core "Broadwell" will have at the market, with no major chips for PC enthusiasts to look forward to. The Core i7-6700K appears to be the flagship product based on the Skylake-D silicon, succeeding the i7-4770K and i7-4790K. The Core i5-6600K will succeed the i5-4670K and i5-4690K.

    I can't say that those results are compelling me to change out my 4790K in any way. The last few gens have been very slight performance increases with a much larger focus on the IGP. But, I suppose with no competition on the computational side that this is to be expected.

    My 4790K is safe for now. (and my 9590 too)

    Do you guys think it would be smart at this point to upgrade to i5 4690k or maybe i7 4970k or just wait for skylake? What's your opinion?

    I've seen some deals at Microcenter so i've been thinking about upgrading from my i7 2600k.

    Really, I think it depends on whether there are any compelling features of the new Z170 chipset that you really want. Otherwise, I doubt the marginal improvements in the 6700K performance benchmarks would be a determining factor.

    Basically from what I've seen, Z170 brings DDR4 and more PCIE Lanes to the table.

    Frankly a Z97 with USB3.1 and a 4790K would probably be a good bet for the next 2+ years. I think it's going to take awhile for DDR4 to come down in price and ratchet up the performance, and until PCI-E SSD's are the norm, the extra PCI-E lanes aren't really a deciding factor for me, and if I was worried about PCI-E lanes, I'd probably hop to X99 anyway, and add a whole bunch more cores while I was at it...

    Just my .02 though.

    Intel Processor Motherboard Bundles | Micro Center
    I just put together an i7-4790K system, and I have a board and i5-4690K CPU that still needs to be used. The i5-4690K is going into the case that my i7-2600K is in. I've had the 2600K around for years and it's been a great CPU.


    I say that if you can get a really good deal on either one, go for it. The CPUs being faster, as well as the Z97 motherboards and their better features, makes for a better experience overall.
    SLI and Crossfire are important to me and Z97 works well with both.

    As for Z170, I'll probably try it out as soon as I can because I already have a 32GB DDR-4 RAM kit on hand.
