  • Minimal Upgrade from Haswell
  • Immature Platform
  • Not entirely overclocking friendly
  • Very hot when overclocked
  • Premium quad core pricing
  • In single-threaded tasks
  • Not substantively faster in our testing than previous-generation chips
  • Requires a new motherboard
  • Slightly higher TDP than its year-old Haswell “Devil's Canyon” counterpart
  • Multi-thread performance is a slight concern considering the price you pay for this CPU
  • Should You Buy The Intel Core i7 6700K
  • The Core i76700K is generally no faster than the i74790K
  • Which will make it difficult to coax purchases out Haswell and Ivy Bridge owners. Availability is rumored to be limited.
  • Not much faster than Haswell
  • Still quadcore
  • No heatsink included
  • Needs new motherboard and RAM
