    Default Intel 6th en, buy or wait

    Hello again,

    i will ill be moving to Canada within few days. I planned to change my current rig for 3-4k Canadian dollar(equals to 3k+ us$) but now as pascal is scheduled for q1 2016, and as it will feature nvlink, should I wait a bit more for Intel to release something with nvlink compatible? My current gtx 770 Sli are still serving me well(can max out almost a every game without antialiasing)

    plz suggest.

    thanks in advance.

    With your 2nd gen i7, don't buy 6th gen. It's not worth the price. Only 25% performance upgrade at best.

    Yeah i was thinking the same, the price is not worth the upgrade. Also ddr4 performance in video games is inferior to that of ddr3.

    Depends on what you're going to use your pc for, if it's just browsing, internet surfing and gaming then no. If you're planning on rendering and video/movie making and editing then yes. since it's not just the cpu but you'd need to change the whole setup for skylake, by getting a the LGA 2011 motherboards and DDR4 RAM.

    BTW, I would suggest if you are going to spend that amount of money and really need upgrade, don't get 6th gen LGA1151, instead get LGA2011 (x99 chipset) and Haswell-E (or maybe Skylake-E next year). That would give you considerable amount of improvement.

    according to this article on expertreview, 'Haswell owners will only see modest gains for an expensive initial outlay, but if you’ve been holding off upgrading for coming up to five years, Skylake is the perfect opportunity to overhaul your PC.'

    OT: please let us know of any garage sale...

    OT: please let us know of any garage sale...
    Garage sale?
    Yeah i read a lot of benchmarks. Not much improvement. Also as pascel is already knocking the door with nvlink, i think it would be wiser to hold my pants on.

    Skylake is still require a big pocket comparing the performance upgrade all-together can be achieved.

    Core i7 6700K unlocked processor [highest OC tested is 4.9Ghz has less threads then 5th generation processor]. Processor in Binary Logic is around 30K, A 16GB RAM DDR4 setup requires may require min. of 15K(Corsair DOMINATOR Platinum Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR4 2800MHz is 28K in amazon today) as good as 40K rest apart MOBO and GPU is your own choice depending on as much as butter you may want to spread over your games. But if you are futuristic looking for step by step upgrade then it is your footstep to openup a bigger roar to your desk.

    U see, my budget is around 3-4k cad,but can stretch it 100-200cad more. and its actually useless to compare bd prices to canadian/american ones, as u have various sales offers like black friday, weekend and so on, in which the price goes down a lot. And um gonna spend as little as possible on mobos. As long as its asrock z170 extreme 3, i am happy(though its not in the market right now), as asrock boards usually are cheaper and position their pcix1 on top of pcix16, a big yes for me to fit a sound card and sli gpus.

    The question was actually not about money, its actually about is the upgrade worth over waiting, cause intel won't release any major upgrade over the current gens. But nvlink is what um actually concerned about.

    Thanks for your help though.

    If it is worth the upgrade or not really depends on how often you are willing to upgrade. If you want to upgrade every 2-3 or 4 years then maybe not, if you want not to upgrade for 5+ years then yes. For now I'll not suggest upgrading, but if you really want to upgrade wait for the Skylake-E CPUs, or maybe Cannonlake. Till then DDR4 will be cheaper and latency might decrease, PCIe 4.0 is expected, more MoBo features and mght have a better CPU improvement. For now Skylake doesn't seem to be much impressive.
