i7 4790K vs i7 5775C
The i7 4790k has higher frequency, faster clock speed, faster turbo, higher overclock, 2MB higher cache.
however the i7 5775C consumes slightly lower power, has 128mb of eDRAM, and much better iGPU.
i get that the broadwell chip is used more for HTPC's or if you don't use a gpu, but how does it fare in Autodesk Maya, Premier and ofcourse gaming compared to the haswell refresh? haven't found many comparions directly with i7 4790k other than some small unkown videos like this one > https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HgnmK42pYHA
will it be slightly better or worse? i got an offer to swap chips with someone for 30$ (i currently use a i7 4790K) is it worth it?

I don't think its worth it even if it provided minor boost. But i7 5775c seems even worse than 4790k. If you're looking for a upgrade look atleast for a 5820k.
wasn't planning on cpu/mobo/ram for atleast 1.5-2 years or so, it's just that i can swap the chip for 30$ so wouldn't have to change anything else as it's the same socket. but yeah probably won't since everyone keeps saying it's bad.. will look into it a bit more though but yeah probably not getting it.

Here is a review of the 5775C if it helps.

Cannonlake's the one after kabylake right? i think i'll just wait and get an Extreme version of one of those 2 i'll have to upgrade everything by that point anyways since ddr3 and z97 won't be used for compatible with them.
