6700k vs 6800k vs 5930k heavy editing rig, looking for best bang for buck, also motherboards

Recommended Posts

Lots and lots of editing, coloring, after effects, 4k footage etc.


Currently using a 2500k @ 4.5ghz and a 980ti hybrid. 2500k is definitely bottlenecking, though I know I won't be able to use 100% of the graphics card with cuda rendering. 980ti will be sticking around.


Also would like suggestions for a motherboard to go with it. Lots of USB3 ports, atleast 1 USBC port (which might not exist if I get a 5930k). Dual-gigabit would be nice since I plan on setting up a pretty nice NAS at some point. ATX size.


Whichever I get I'll be getting 32GB of ram.

Id go 6800k.



Agree. 5930K has same amount of cores as 6800k and an ever so slightly higher clock speed, but 6800K has a more efficient architecture (14nm vs 22nm) as it is newer generation and is $100+ cheaper for comparable editing performance. 6 cores will give you a boost for editing over the quad-core 6700k, probably worth the $100 if you edit a lot.
