Worth buying i7-6700k??

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I was going to build a new PC, including an i7-6700K.
Is it worth it or should I wait for the next generation?
When will the next generation be or in what cycles do they get renewed?

Next generation is very close. If you can wait I would.

Go for the 6700K or if you can wait until next year then Zen should be out and you can compare the two. If you need to build shortly then go with the 6700K, the next generation of CPUs from intel will be Kaby Lake and will offer maybe 5% improvement so it's not worth the wait.

What will the PC be used for? Video editing or mostly gaming?

If I were you, I'd wait for the new generation, they are coming out next month/October-ish.

Wait. On what are you basing your statement of next month/october-ish? I´ve heard it was next year
