Only 5930K as upgrade choice over the 6700K, but still hesitate! Please help !

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

 

 

Hope you're well, i'm very narrowed between these two cpu's 5930K (6 cores/15MB cache)& 6700K, but the 6700K is not available now and in the nearly future in my region now and the only choice available now is 5930K. To be honest i'm lining toward the 5930K especialy i'm a home cockpit user (7 screens at one PC and too many USBs connected with so many heavy addons added), so u can say i'm a heavy P3D user.

 

So i need the advice if i get the 5930K i'll be happy and the results will be good ?? It will be strongly enough to control and run all these conditions and addons smoothly as possible ???!!!! Does it considered to be a high end CPU ??? and i'll see the improvement (i was 2600k user) ????

 

Like i say i was run 2600K on the cockput and it was good and gives me extremly acceptable performance for 3 years or so..

 

I'll run the latest p3d version with the latest addons available...

 

Does the results and performance will be good and i'll not feel i'm mistake when i get the 5930k over the 6700k ?????

 

Please guys i'm very narrowed and i hope to get extreme help in my delimma.

 

The cpu 5930K also will come with 32GB rams at 2400Mhz and GTX1080 or GTX1070 if the budget will be enough and allow.

 

Please help with advice and experience guys as they will be strognly helpful.

 

 

Thx

I see this isn't your first thread on this topic.

 

If it were me, I would wait until the 6700k is available, as you'll probably get more bang for your buck, plus you could put the extra savings from the 6700k into the GTX 1080 and not have to worry about going over budget.

The single thread performance of the top of the line 4000, 5000 and 6000 (and even the upcoming Kaby Lake i7-7700K) is not all that much different. Since P3d pins one physical core to close to 100%, the single thread performance is the best judge of how a new CPU will enhance frame rates and smoothness. Of course, this assumes that you will also end up with either a GTX 1070 or a GTX 1080. Here's a link to the Passmark single thread benchmark for a variety of CPUs:

To summarize:

 

Intel Core i7-7700K @ 4.20GHz 2,640 (1.26)
Intel Core i7-4790K @ 4.00GHz 2,528 (1.21)
Intel Core i7-6700K @ 4.00GHz 2,337 (1.12)
Intel Core i7-5930K @ 3.50GHz 2,088  (1.00)
 
They all can be OCed at least 10%, maybe more.

Have run this singletread benchmark and cb15, geek bench with different CPUs at same frq and max Overclock

At same clock 4790k have equal score to the 6700k but on the CB15 and geek bench 6700k perform better.

If I try to get as good result as possible in passmark the 6700k is the winner think a get 3065passmark.

The 7700k passmark ? shall test when a get a sample

What u think about the main quistion which is 5930K ????

I get rid of my 5820k and 5930k have a 5960x instead the Haswell -E is not good overclockers.

If you look at fps and not much photosenery 6700k is the way to go.

My 5960x @4.7ghz 3000mhz c14 mems have 20% less fps then the 6700k system , test done with same settings in P3D same 980TI
