Intel i5 4460 vs i5 4690k, is there a huge difference?

Hey, is there really a huge difference between the Intel i5 4460 vs i5 4690k? (not the price)

 

The only reason to get the i5 4690k would be overclocking, but is overclocking really that noticeable? (I would probably not overclock anyway, just wondering)

 

Otherwise, what is the difference between these two CPU's? 

 

Thanks!

Alright, well that is what I thought. However to overclock you need a specific type of motherboard, right? And when trying to overclock, how much better would it run?

 

I would use it for gaming and streaming / recording.

Besides the base clock and the fact that the 4690k can overclock, it's not gonna be a big difference at stock. Once overclocked though, depending on WHAT, it can make a very big difference.

I would use it for gaming and streaming / recording. How big of a difference is there after OC?

Consider a Xeon 1231v3 for that.

 

There's a rather large difference between the two when the k is overclocked.

The z97 boards aren't that expensive anymore, so if you can afford the 4690K get it

Totally agree with that.

 

You are getting extra 4 threads for similar or same kinda price.

 

It's really worth.

But why? It is a lot more expensive than the i5 4690k, but is pretty much the same?

There will be no difference at stock speed. but if you overclock the 4690k then there will be a difference between the 4460.

 

If you're not overclocking then the i5 4460 is for you, if however you will be overclocking in the future then just get the i5 4690k :)

Sorry, but from Sweden.. so here, not the same price at all. It is like nearly 100 USD more! For nothing!

Z97 for OC

Xeon E3 1231v3 is much better than a i5 for streaming/rendering

It's not nothing.

 

It's 4 extra threads. It's basically a 4770 without iGPU.

 

Works better for Streaming or Video Editing.

For another 4 threads. (4 cores 8 threads on the Xeon)

Oh, didn't notice that xD Alright, well.. that is all great and stuff, but still a lot more expensive.

If it's nothing, why not throw some cash to me? ;) But yeah, I just noticed that it had 4 more threads, but yeah, I can't stretch that far.

Then you should stick with a 4460. No other way.

 

Or wait for few weeks, save up. Then buy 1231 V3.

What about the AMD FX 8350 then? It is WAY cheaper than both Intel i5's and it it 4ghz and it is 8 cores and 8 threads.

Haha, woops. Well what about the AMD FX 8350 then? It is WAY cheaper than both Intel i5's and it it 4ghz and it is 8 cores and 8 threads. The only reason I have heard so far is "intel is better" but this cpu is clearly better!

Please don't.

 

Those are dead sockets. Way older.

 

Still an i5 can beat the FX 8350 in many ways.

 

Don't fall for "8 core".

 

Those are weaker "8 cores".

 

Choose i5 now, and you have better upgrade path later.

4690k w h100gtx passing by... go for the e3 you'll have to spend extra money on a good cooler to get a good overclock (although the lottery matters too!). however if you are sure that you will upgrade to an unlocked processor in the future, might as well get an 4690k and spend some extra money on the cooler, you can reuse it your next build!

You can't overclock Xeons?
