Intel core i7 Skylake&HaswellE discussion
So currently the i7 6700k is the latest intel offering, with recent price cuts the i7 5820k is now at almost the same price point with the skylake chip. Even motherboard prices of x99 boards similar to mid and high end z series boards and both using the same type of RAM (differen't channels though). So the question is if you were to get a system today and was going to get either of these, which one would it be? and also why?
Obviously the choice would be based on what you're planning to do with the rig so points are what are the differences between them in all these categories :
>Single gpu setup
>Dual/Multi gpu setup
>Rendering capacity/passmark scores
>Gaming performance and benchmarks
So how do each of these cards fare in them, and also which one would you personally prefer over the other for your use?
haswell enthusiast chip. Reasons we are going to use discrete gpu...skylake comes with irish gpu which is not made for extreme gaming. Multitask 5820-5960 takes the cake..not using amd chip so not worried about power consumption . Not a pc expert here but since integrated gpu is included in skylake n up coming skylake E chip might not beat 5960 in terms of performance ( multitasking). Top games will use more core n use direct x 12 so dedicated gpu + mid level cpu is enough for gaming ..as for multi tasking the more core the better . I am assuming everyone will be doing some creative work ( gamers are more creative ) so E chip makes more sense to me if the price is not an issue here. Mainstream choice is not wrong ..even owning both cpu is not wrong ...just my opinion 5960x is enough for years of gaming + multi tasking + no bottleneck ( probably 7-10 years).
Confirmed, Intel uses little leprechauns in their processors.

If you are into live streaming then you could consider extreme processors as well.
For gpu, single better than double.
