Links, thanks, but how much is the difference in the ''work'' bench between these two? difference in only few minutes?
Also, the i7 7700k has a higher frequency rate, doesn't that ballance the workflow at the end?
There is always a few seconds difference).
You don't compare 7700k with pentium 4, right?)
According to Aida64 CPU Photoworxx test
I7 7700k @ 4,8Ghz is mached with 6850k @ 3,6Ghz.
So you can see, that 4*4,8 = 6*3.6 ( something near)
CPU Queen test shows that 5820k @ 3,3Ghz gets the same score as 7700k @ 4,8Ghz.
But 6850k @ 3,6Ghz (and 4930k @ 3,4Ghz) is ~15-20% faster.
Other CPU test show, that 7700k @ 4,8Ghz is in the middle of the list with 6 core stock clocks CPUs.
If you OC the 6 core CPU a bit, I think they will outperform the 7700k.
But that is legit with multi-core tasks.
If situation will demand single core power - 7700k will be the winner for sure.
