NEED HELP PICKING PROCESSOR 6800K 6850K OR 6900K

Recommended Posts

I'm looking at a 6800k but want to know what a 6900k would do to the speeds of my renderings for the additional $600 cost.

 

If this helps:

I have my Current CPU with a 3930k OC 4.6 which I use to do Acad and Chief Architect x8. I recently built a Second New CPU with a 6700k OC 4.5 which is used by Staff to do occasional x8 work. I loaded both with the same model and rendered it, I had all the settings the same and the 6700k was almost twice as fast? I did some other side by side tasks and the 6700k would either match or blow the 3930k out of the water.  

Current CPU: 3930k O.C. 4.6 on water h80, (4) 16gb ddr3 1600 ram, Asus P9X79 Deluxe, 480 SSD & Evga 1080 FTW. 850psu

New CPU: 6700k O.C. 4.5 on water H100i, (2) 16gb DDR4 3400 ram, ASRock Z170 gaming-itx/ac, M.2 Samsung 950 512gb, Evga 1070 FE

Go to a site like CPUBOSS and pull up some comparison charts on the CPU​'s you are interested in. The GeekBench Multi-core score is a reasonable number to indicate rendering performance.

If you feel you need 6 cores, I'd probably still go Broadwell-E for the reduced power consumption, even if performance is pretty much the same. For me personally, 1151 would probably be better though. Skylake's improved IPC would be more useful than extra cores.

I think my best bet is to use a i7-6800k (28 lanes) with the ASrock gaming I7 MB with a M.2 Samsung 950 PRO, I am thinking that the G.skill DDR4-3200 16GB(2x8) ram should be enough, I don't think 32GB will help me any?

I will reuse my Evga 850 PSU and storage devices and of course the Evga GTX 1080 FTW. 

 

Does anyone see any problems with this set-up?

 

BTW: if you need just a rendering beast on the cheap here is a get read, http://www.techspot.com/review/1155-affordable-dual-xeon-pc/

I pulled the trigger on the I7-6800k, If anyone cares, I will run Cinebench and Render the same model on all three of my machines and post the results.

 

1. CPU: 3930k O.C. 4.6 on water h80, (4) 16gb ddr3 1600 ram, Asus P9X79 Deluxe, 480 SSD & Evga 1080 FTW. 850psu

2. CPU: 6700k O.C. 4.5 on water H100i, (2) 16gb DDR4 3400 ram, ASRock Z170 gaming-itx/ac, M.2 Samsung 950 512gb, Evga 1070fe

3. CPU: 6800k O.C. 4.3? on water H100I, (2) 16gb DDR4 3200 ram, ASRock I7, M.2 Samsung 950 512gb & Evga 1080 FTW. 850psu
