If you're about to buy a i7 4790K, please wait for the i7 5820K instead

The price will be roughly the same and you'll get 2 more cores and none of that integrated GPU BS.

And the 5820K is schedule to be released this coming Sept.

...what's wrong with the integrated GPU? I like to have it as a backup and it doesn't hurt anything.

You'd have to buy the upcoming z99 motherboards for this because of DDR4 support. On the flipside doesn't lga 2011 have insanely long-term support for upgrades? From what I read the z99 is LGA 2011-3 revision.

That same die space can be used to give you more cores.

So I'd rather take something I know I would use more often.

Plus if you're in the $330-$350 CPU buying bracket, you're going to get yourself a discrete video card.

What if your card fails?

there is a pretty big con to the 5820k though, i'm not going to include the ddr4 since that a socket issue, but the 5820k has gimped pci-e lanes, limiting it to 2 way sli, which is kind of the whole reason most people get a lga2011 cpu in the first place, for multiple video cards, if you step up to the non gimped hex core you're pretty much doubling the price at launch if you're lucky

if you aren't going to be running more than 2 video cards and are gaming, stick with the cheaper lga1150 boards that do the same thing use cheaper ddr3(at the moment at least) if you aren't gaming and want a really good multi threaded monster you were looking at lga2011 to begin with, but the cheaper boards and ddr3 still make you think twice about it

plus there are a few z87 boards that support the 4790k with a bios update they might already have one of these boards


if i were going to be doing a new build around the end of this year and have an extra $200-400 to blow on the system, i'd definitely go with the 5820k just to get my foot in the door of the x99 platform

The 5820k is gimped to 2 way sli and has a low clock speed of 3.3GHz. For gaming, that's not really better than an i7 4790k. The 5930k would be the sweet spot with its higher clock speed and support for three way sli. Although, unless you're going to do 3 way sli, it's not really worth the money either.

for gaming, for rendering/workstation type stuff it might be worth it, but you don't gain anything over a 4790k at the moment

I think I'll wait for Skylake personally and then go ddr4 with it.
