How much better is Skylake compared to Haswell? Is there any reason to buy a 6500 for the same money as 3770?
>How much better is Skylake compared to Haswell
not a lot

DDR4 platform and slightly less power usage. Better single core performance. If you have a good use for more cores the 3770 would be better.

skylake is another huge improvement, don't listen to the amd shills here
amd is putting alot of effort in making intel looking bad in hope to boost the hype around zen
i say go for it, it's worth every penny
Skylake has a lot of fancy stuff like m.2 and ddr4 support but if you don't care about that then you can save money sticking with Haswell as performance wise there's not much difference.
CPUs have gone virtually nowhere since Nahelem, much less from Haswell to Broadwell to Skylake.
You'll see maybe a 5% improvement clock-for-clock and maybe 10-15% overall improvement if you get a faster clocked CPU.
If Zen actually makes AMD somewhat competitive again, maybe Intel will try to get serious again and quit jewing everyone to death.
