    ¤¤ EDIT ¤¤
    Something is wrong with my system so I'll resume benchmarking as soon as it's fixed.


    Hi!

    3570K is an "old" CPU nowadays and not represented in current benchmarks any more. Unfortunately my old Z77 mobo died so I couldn't make a set of benchmarks before upgrading to Skylake but I got a few things for you. Some of the gaming benchmarks aren't "scientifically correct" so to speak since I have to remember what I saw back then when gaming on my old system. Heaven/Firestrike on the other hand are correct comparisons. The idea is simply to give you a hint of how big the difference is.

    I'll update with more benchmarks later today. 6700K is not OCd and runs at 4200MHz, 3570K was running at 4300MHz. I can tell you that the 6700K is cooler than the 3570K :)

    Games tested so far in 1440p, Gsync enabled, 120/144Hz:
    DOTA 2 (viewing a downloaded match, everything on max)
    - 6700K : solid 120fps, even during team fights
    - 3570K : 60-120fps, sometimes dips down to 100, 80 or less especially during team fights

    Witcher 3 (Ultra settings, No HairWorks, Grass High, somewhere in Novigrad)
    - 6700K : 31fps, clearly something is wrong here
    - 3570K : 54-59fps

    Diablo 3 (Maxed, Shadows Medium (smooth), 16 x Sound Channels, solo bounty)
    - 6700K : 100-120fps, still stuttery, doesn't feel like G-sync kicks in or that it likes SLI
    - 3570K : 80-120fps, stuttery like above but with more dips

    Final Fantasy XIV : Heavensward
    - 6700K : 10215
    - 3570K : 13118

    Tomb Raider
    - 6700K :
    - 3570K :

    Thief
    - 6700K :
    - 3570K :

    GTA V
    - 6700K : 110-120 fps
    - 3570K : 80-100 fps

    Graphics benchmarks:
    3D Mark Firestrike
    - 6700K : 14905 overall, 19532 graphics, 12212 physics
    - 3570K : 15592 overall, 24080 graphics, 8092 physics

    Unigine Heaven
    - 6700K :
    - 3570K :

    6700k's HyperThreading is on or off?

    Yeah the 3570K looks better! Of course, people aren't dissing Intel at the moment because even with their lacklustre improvements of recent CPU's, they're still faster than the alternatives. Hopefully that will change next year ;).

    I must admit though it depends on what workload you are doing. If I were doing x265 video encoding (which I am), then maybe Skylake is an option purely for AVX2. x265 benefits noticeably from AVX2, and further improvements are in the works. I suspect that maybe the future Kaby Lake processors will merely be Skylake 'done right'... who knows.

    It's ON at the moment.

    Hehe what a waste of money right? :)

    Something is clearly wrong with my system though. I'll stop with the benchmarks until investigation is complete.

    Interesting results. Recently, I also moved from a 3930k to 6700k due to a failing motherboard. Though the 3930k is an awesome chip, I am quite pleased with the new setup. Benchmarks aside, the 6700k is a lot sharper and reacts noticeably quicker than 3930k. Having said that, I've run a time domain FEA and notice that the new chip lacks the brute horsepower of the 3930k.

    Looking at your results, thought I would share mine as well:

    Fryrender:
    3930k 4.5GHz, 3:03
    6700k 4.8GHz, 3:19

    Cinebench R15:
    3930k 4.4GHz, 967
    6700k 4.8GHz, 1052

    Cinebench R11.5
    3930k 4.4GHz, 12.67
    6700k 4.8GHz, 11.60

    3dMark 11
    3930k 4.5GHz, 14056
    6700k 4.8GHz, 14247

    3dMark firestrike
    3930k 4.5GHz, 9933
    6700k 4.8GHz, 9985

    I see, Thanks.

    So its ~ 1500 points or 3-4fps more then me @ 4.6Ghz (~13100). Thought its gonna be more, will deffo wait for real 8core upgrade :nerd:




    Anyway, you found the cause what glitched your scores before?

    Happy to hear that you are satisfied with your results. Everything looks good I must say.

    Nope TJ :( This problem gives me stomach aches. First I found someone else with exactly the same problem but then I found a review site that had a pair of 970s running with a 6700K without any issues. Next step is to RMA the mobo but first I'll try a 980Ti that I'll get tomorrow, just for science.

    Hope you figure out what's going on! I can imagine that it's frustrating to have to RMA a new mobo... :(

    Netherwind out of curiosity, have you tried any OC on 6700?
