Few questions here. Is Skylake superior to Haswell? Or is it too expensive for now?

Also the difference between i5 and i7 is minimal, right?

Do you think Zen will introduce some competition in the high end CPU market?

also some benchmarks, but those are few games

Skylake offers more performance than Haswell. Whether or not it's worth it is the question to ask. We probably won't see Zen for a while. I would go with Skylake since it's the newest architecture but a used Haswell CPU would be fine.
Most people say you don't need an i7 for gaming, but I got one anyways and I can remember a few titles where an i7 was recommended over an i5. Just look for deals on Amazon, Newegg, and eBay.
>>
>>323040468
isn't Zen supposed to come out in this year?
>>
>>323037824
As usual amd will always fall short. but Skylake v haswell is mostly its virtualization options then from there you are looking at a very small performance increase. The difference between i5 and i7 besides base clock speed is hyper threading. They both have 4 logic cores but the i7 has 4 hyper threads on top of that.
>>
>>323040468
I got i7 too, most games where people mention performance issues I didn't get any on my non k i7

Might not seem like a big deal but seems like i7 handle newer games better
>>
>>323041562
that's mostly because i7s being slightly higher clocked, right? Most games dont use many cores
>>
Smart threads die too quick, they last longer surprisingly longer on /b/ than this hellhole

An A8-7670K for $100 already beats an i5-6600 Skylake that costs $230.

Also Skylake motherboards are much more expensive.

that game isn't demanding at all

Now post GTA V

Bump for interest

So what's best right now, i5 6600k?

>integrated graphics
So you're comparing the iGPUs of those CPUs, which is clearly not what the thread is about.

Pair that APU and that i5 with a Titan X overclocked and you'll see what happens
>>
5820k is the sweet spot if you are doing more then just gaming otherwise get a skylake for muh 10% single core better performance.
>>
>>323044413
Jesus I didnt even notice it was integrated graphics

Of course amd has better integrated graphics

That makes this an god tier shitpost

Seeing as this doesn't really need its own thread.

What's the point of buying GPUs when CPUs are more powerful?

>Intel introduced a third line, and announced they're going to cease their tick tock development, with Kaby Lake coming before Cannonlake's shrink to 10mm

>developing smaller nodes is becoming more expensive, harder and with the barebones competition there's less of a reason to push hard for it anyway
>silicon is about to be tapped out with those infinitesimal shrinks

Is the desktop CPU market done? It seems destined to stagnate a slow death. What is ahead of the CPU innovation front? Graphene CPUs?

seems to contradict the benchmarks in OP's video
[citation needed]

I have a i5 4690k running a 4.4mhz, is it worth moving over to an i7 4790 for hyper threading or should I just wait it out for a few generations?
>>
>>323043740
yeah if you use the dogshit IGP on both chips

this really isn't impressive considering A series are supposed to be "APUs"
>>
>>323046312
nope, the benefit will be minimal, if any at all
>>
>>323046236
OP's video doesn't show i7, you fucking turk.
>>
>>323046603
it shows a i5 6600k with way over 60FPS average it seems, also on ultra

The Titan X is overclocked, but then that shouldn't make a difference for a CPU benchmark, because optimal CPU benchmarks try to be as less GPU limited as possible, so it would make that anon's benchmarks just look amateur
>>
>>323046785
Maybe Digital Foundry isn't playing on Ultra.
>>
>>323046785
>>323047370
Also, DF's GTA V active benchmark says 60 FPS, whereas their CPU list shows none of them with that. That's odd, to say the least.
>>
>>323047370
Oh also I forgot, graphics settings mostly have something to do with the GPU, besides shit like quantity of pedestrians and such. If you go from 1080p to 4k there's zero extra strain on the CPU, so I'm sure it doesn't matter at all.

That anon should provide the source of his benchmarks that an old ass CPU is beating fresh ones.
>>
>>323046540
Thanks, just wondered if it was bottlenecking my 980ti, keep getting occasional frame rate hiccups when playing in 1440p, more so in 4k in games like Witcher 3 and mgsv.
And seeing as I can do a straight swap with the CPUs I'd considered it an option.
>>
>>323047727
>If you go from 1080p to 4k there's zero extra strain on the CPU
Albeit incorrect, what does resolution have to do with the discussion? Both sources are playing at 1080p..
>>
>>323047950
Progress in desktop CPU tech is going slow as fucking geological eras by now.

I've heard people with overclocked 2500k to 4.5 or so saying they see no reason to upgrade to this day, and how old are those processors again, like 5 years?

There needs to be some quantum leap in CPU technology, or maybe something that overthrows silicon. Shit is just moving at a slow, extremely slow pace.
>>
>>323048414
Each gen upgrades performance by about 10%.
>>
>>323048187
But it is correct, the strain on the CPU comes from physics, calculations of npcs and shit onscreen.

The point is that Digital Foundry's video had the 6600k around 70-80 FPS, 65~ when he was flying with the jet. It probably isn't make an enormous difference, and of course he would have settings that affect the CPU turned to the max to test them.
>>
>>
>>323049279
>that huge jump from ivybridge to haswell in dolphin
Is it really that amazing for Dolphin?
>>
>>323049113
Some CPU-dependent settings are going to scale with resolution.

>It [probably isn't making an enormous difference]
What, graphics settings? See above.
>>
>>323049502
>See above
Except applied to graphics settings and not resolution, obviously*. Scaling.

> >>323047370
>>
>>323049502
Well first that anon should post the source of his benchmark.
>>
>>323049686
It's like the first result on google for the i5 vs the 970

i have a 9590 oced to 5.1 ghz and a 290x. it was all actually pretty cheap and i get great preformance
>>
I have 6700k. I would say that if you only want to play games, it's an overkill.
It's an amazing CPU for other stuff that requires a fast processor, but definitely way too much for games.
>>
>>323049826
Those going with i5 are plausibly getting it to emulate.
>>
>>323051165
bu it performs better in games as well

sadly intel has a stranglehold on the high end desktop cpu market
