Core i7-6700K 4-Core 4.0GHz is a high-end CPU based on the 14nm, Skylake MicroArchitecture.
It offers 4 Physical Cores (8 Logical), initially clocked at 4.0GHz, which may go up to 4.2GHz and 8MB of L3 Cache.
Among its many features, HyperThreading, Turbo Boost 2.0 and Virtualization are activated and the processor has its multiplier unlocked.
The processor integrates Powerful Graphics called HD i7 6700K, with 24 Execution Units, initially clocked at 350MHz and that go up to 1150MHz, in Turbo Mode which share the L2 Cache and system RAM with the processor.
Both the processor and integrated graphics have a rated board TDP of 91W.
Its performance is exceptionally good and enough for even the most demanding applications.
Can anyone recommend a decent motherboard for this cpu and a cooler
Nothing to expensive xD
worth changing my CPU for this, considering the gpu I just bought? Thx
Can anyone tell me if this cooler will be able to handle the 6700k running at 100% for extended period of time ? - price=52euro
or should i go for something cheaper/pricier like
Would this be a worthy and significant upgrade from my current cpu? Thanks for responses in advance!
In September, i'll upgrade to this processor from my i3-4130 with GTX 1070 G1 gaming GPU and 16gb of ram.
I have a gtx 980 ti 6GB with a fx 6300 processor. Do you guys think im getting a bad bottleneck and should i upgrade to a 6700k or a 4790k?
my CPU is 519% worse hahahah
How much of a difference between my current CPU and this will there be?
Thinking of upgrading to this to futureproof my machine ( cause of DDR4, Overclocking capabilities, more threads for future and because my current mobo only has 2 RAM slots and 1 GPU slot. My CPU is non-k ) and give my CPU/RAM/MOBO to a friend. Also with DX12 hoping to pick up an r9 480X or 580X in the future
Dont get angry at this for saying this, but why when comparing this cpu to the 4790k, then there is no difference? I mean comparing here on GD.
Since i heard that skylake is a real step up from haswell?
Thanks for clarifying this
My 4790K @4.6Ghz is 15% better then the 6700K at stock, should I upgrade to the 6700K and overclock?
