Hello, welcome to Newegg!
Can I help you find a gaming laptop?
whats the best i7 for gaming desktop
Spencer J.
I recommend the i7-6700K
any of the 5th gen boards work with the skylarks?
or they req all new mobos?
Spencer J.
they do not. the socket is different
also 6th gen uses DDR4 instead of DDR3 which is another major difference
whats the big perks on the 6th gens?
other then the ram
Spencer J.
newer ram, smaller physical size, less energy usage and a little bit higher performance.
5690 vs 6700 is the 5690 still a faster cpu ?
Spencer J.
the 6700K is slightly faster
wow really? for hundreds less...
sorry haven't read anything on skylark yet
Spencer J.
Yes
