i7 6700k is it still good?

Recommended Posts

Way better than the i5 7400. Almost like i7 7700K, similar to modern day i5-s when it comes to game performance.

Also 6700k owner here.

 

I feel your pain, this CPU seems odd.

 

I can get awesome frames in a lot of average games, but it can tank hard during certain games, even with useage being checked etc.

 

Nothing heat related or CPU issue, it just struggles.

 

Compared to an 8700k on the same task, it definately does not keep up anymore.

 

Just what my own experience is so far

 

 

Edit: I've been tempted to upgrade but hard to tell if worth doing with new hardware around the corner.

@Bobthepotato I was talking used were you can find the 7700k for like $300-$350

Overall the 4c/8t i7s are still pretty good. I have mine clocked at 4.7 GHz and I was playing Battlefield 5 just the other day. On most maps it was averaging 120 fps+. Only map that may cause some slowdown is Rotterdam but even then it was averaging over 100 fps in the most taxing scenes. I'd say if you can get one used for a good price they're still worth considering. They are about on par with the 6c/6t i5s of today, so still offer amazing gaming performance in most titles with decent multitasking capabilities if you're just a general computer user ( Web browsing, gaming, light video editing, photo editing, etc. )

The 7700K is pretty much a 6700K, no need to upgrade to it. A bad way to spend your money

Dont pay that kind of money for very old cpu. You can get 8600K/9600K and a new motherboard instead. Or are those some weird dollars worth 0.2-0.3 US?

If you can wait a few months - look into getting yourself a zen 2 when it gets released.
