Not much of an Upgrade from 2600K, but not a downgrade either.
on May 21, 2014
I can't give this thing a drop in stars because it isn't way better than the last few Generations of Intel. It performs very solid and Overclocks very easily. I will always cherish the memory of my 2600k.. but at least this is a worthy replacement. You can see in the benchmarks that this baby shines faster than it's predecessors. Yes, I actually screenshot old benchmarks from my previous CPUs and I have the facts. If you ran an SSD with a decent motherboard and your previous processors, you won't notice much of a difference except in Benchmarks. Maybe next gen Intel will show more difference. I just upgraded because I had the cash and I like to have the newest things. If you have the money, go for it. If you have to save up for a few months.. save your money for the next gen NVidia graphics card line or an upgrade to solid state storage. That will be your next big noticeable bump in performance.
