I will always buy Intel™ because I only play games with Intel Inside™. Intel also pioneers innovative new technologies like Hyper Threading Technology™, Intel Rapid Start Technology™ and the highest quality chipsets to ever grace motherboards.
When I boot up with a brand new Intel™ i7™ with the latest Z chipset, I can enjoy the games the way they where meant to be with Intel Inside™. Intel™ also delivers a far more silkysmooth experience with its Hyper Threading Technology™.
Intel i5™ is also very power efficient. A processor is the most power hungry device in your house. Air conditioners, water heaters, lights, etc all use less power than a processor. Which is why Intel™ puts gamers first by ensuring that their gaming experience is of the highest quality while looking out for gamers by giving them the most value in their electrical bill.
At this point in time, there's really no reasons to consider an AMD processor at all. I tried once, it caused so much heat that it exploded and nearly burnt down my house. It also consumed so much power that it produced an EMP and destroyed not only the rest of my computer but my entire neighborhood.
Intel™ also pioneered how useless MORE CORES is with the i™ series processors. Years ago, everyone thought MORE CORES were the future. Now, Intel™ has debunked that myth entirely and increased efficiency. Now you can save thousands a year in electricity thanks to Intel™ with its powerful IPC. MORE CORES will never be part of Intel's™ line up.
It's quite clear that OPs an AMD shill trying to convince you to settle on something less than the optimal experience with Intel Inside™. Intel™ is the only real way to play games. We have seen recently that they offer incredible libraries for software developers like Intel C++ Compiler. He is probably too poor to afford the Intel Inside™ experience and can not afford to play any games.
Don't be a poor gamer with bad chipsets and a huge power bills. Play games with Intel Inside™
with all this shit >>52490702 intel still face rapes amd in every arena.
even a i3 at stock rapes amd's house fire 8 core. i5 with its 4 cores at stock is either as fast, or faster than a 8350 when all 8 of its cores are maxed out.
a haswell based pentium has stronger single threaded performance than a 8350.
amd isn't a competitor for intel. not even in the low end since its quads barely keep up with dual core i3's.
>i3 at stock rapes amd's house fire 8 core
>i5 with its 4 cores at stock is either as fast
so, i3 "rapes" but i5 is "as fast"; safe to assume you don't know what the fuck you're talking about

you do realize there's nothing wrong with low resolution benchmarks right
the CPU has to process the same load no matter the resolution, lowering it guarantees the GPU isn't bottlenecking so you can see the true CPU performance
They fail to represent actual use-cases for the CPUs, though, so you might as well be using artificial benchmarks. Yeah, it's great if a 5960x can push 200fps at 800x600. It's also wholly irrelevant because absolutely no-one will be using a $1000 CPU to play games at 800x600 resolution except for the purposes of benchmarking. It doesn't matter if 5960x can do double the FPS of FX-8370 if no GPU can render the game at more than 60 FPS.
>-No stock HSF
intel's enthusiast line of cpu's don't come with hsfs either
>-No enterprise features
I'd say vt-d is an enterprise feature that has only really recently been added to k chips (a lot of non-k chips had them), and up until recently, only haswell-refresh and high end k chips had it
>-No overclocking benefits over non-K except unlocked multiplier
so.... overclocking then
>so.... overclocking then
Had you been paying attention to the news, you'd know that non-k Skylake CPUs can be overclocked as well(or nearly so) as the k-SKUs on motherboards where the feature is enabled - you just can't do it simply by increasing the multiplier.

keep crying fags. I bet none of you do the video editing and only a quarter of you do the compiling required to take advantage of AMD anyway.
>a CPU does not fucking work harder if the resolution is higher
And if you're bottlenecked by the GPU, it doesn't matter one bit if the CPU could push information to it twice as fast. It is literally completely irrelevant to anyone except people like you wanking to benchmarks.
I'd be genuinely surprised if non-k skylakes got anywhere close to the overclocking capability that even bad silicone k skylakes got with just bclk
historically you'd struggle to get much farther past turbo frequency
>>vt-d is an enterprise feature
>only in intel land
>virtualisation allowing for assignment of pci and other i/o devices

off to /v/ with you
wowowowowooooow hold right there, bruv. this is only true if you render still images. depending on the spatial data structures (like multi-resolution maps, quad-trees, oct-trees, and binary space partition trees etc. ) that are utilised (if any) the cpu load for culling alone is vastly increased. and not to mention bigger = more geometry, particle effects, textures etc have to be calculated.
now, you are probably a smartass and will say: I will just scale everything up accordingly and the viewport remains the same with increasing resolution. but even in this case the scaling itself increases cpu load.
Doesn't really matter, to be honest, but since you have extra cash to burn, you might as well get the skylake. You'll just need to be careful if you get a high-end cooler and move the thing around, because the skylake CPUs have thinner base and are therefore liable to break.
The 6600k is the best CPU for gaming right now.
>because the skylake CPUs have thinner base and are therefore liable to break.
Bullshit, its only with certain scythe coolers.
>>virtualisation allowing for assignment of pci and other i/o devices
>>not an enterprise feature
>off to /v/ with you
I bet you're the kind of retard that considers virtual machines an enterprise technology that should be restricted to enterprise environments. Hell, general computing is an enterprise feature! All you need is a browser to post your status updates and watch some 10-bit cartoons! Moron!
>historically you'd struggle to get much farther past turbo frequency
That's only because Intel artificially limited BCLK because it was tied to a whole bunch of shit. Not true with Skylake.
If anything non-K might even work better since they are proven to be stable at lower voltages. Why the fuck do you think the base clock can be so much lower than K even though they turbo to pretty similar numbers?
>mfw got my skylake K for the same price as a haswell K cpu at based microcenter
Skylake is the most advanced x86 Intel processor revision ever. It's the biggest leap
You're a literal faggot and luddite if you haven't bought one yet. You're holding us all back. It's incredible what my laptop is doing with a Skylake quad core and a Maxwell 980m
I'm not being a shill hack, this laptop runs so much quieter than even a Haswell one I had. And it's increased my framerates by at least 3 frames in each game I've tried it with. Whereas the processor never mattered as long as it got the threads and clockspeed it required. IPC on Skylake is nuts
you know that a slightly overclocked fx8350 has 93% of the multicore performance of a i7 6700 already right? given that this is a really old cpu i am quite sure that zen will rape skylake.
No I didn't. I thought about it and bought a 4790K instead. Haslel master race.
