i5 12600K or i7 12700 non K - for Blender

I'm not sure which one will be better for 3d content creation. I saw that the 12600K performed better in some tasks than the 12700. Will the 2 more cores on the i7 make a huge difference in 3d workloads?

 

How will the 12600K perform with a B660 motherboard compared to a Z690 one? Will the clocks be same on both motherboards or different?

 

I can save some money if I go with the 12600K, but I'm not so sure about the higher TDP. How much power will it draw for everyday and cpu intensive tasks?

 

Any help is greatly appreciated.

The 12600k can be overclocked but if you aren't going to overclock it yourself, you should definitely go for the i7

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

Trash beauty:

Xeon X5550RX 570 4GB (defective) -Fattydove Racing 240GB - WD Blue 320GBHP Z400 - 6x2GB DDR3 1066 - EVGA 450W3

 

How many watts do I needATX 3.0 & PCIe 5.0 spec, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

CPU's will perform the same on every board, as long as board itself doesn't throttle. Just remember you can't OC on a B board.

4 thread difference might be noticeable in a professional work environment where speed = productivity. If you're doing 3D modelling as a hobby then I don't think you'd notice a real work difference.

TDP concerns should be more around cooling rather than power draw. Power draw won't effect long term reliability because that's exactly what it's been designed and specced to do.

As long as the board is decent the 12700 or 12600k will work fine on a b660 or z690.

 

For blender the gpu matters more as almost all rendering will be done by that as its faster ESPECIALLY if you can use rt core acceleration.

 

For cpu renders the i7 is faster. It simply has more cores running at the same speed as the i5. Even ocd to the max (really isnt much you can oc) that i5 will always be slower
