Reasons to consider the
Intel Core i7 6700K

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 14 nm vs 90 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Is unlocked Yes vs No Somewhat common; An unlocked multiplier allows for easier overclocking
Significantly higher clock speed 4 GHz vs 3.2 GHz Around 25% higher clock speed
Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
More l3 cache 8 MB vs 1 MB 8x more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
Significantly lower typical power consumption 73.94W vs 101.56W More than 25% lower typical power consumption
Much more l3 cache per core 2 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 4x more l3 cache per core
Newer Jul, 2015 vs Aug, 2007 Release date over 8 years later
Significantly better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.61 GHz vs 3.41 GHz More than 35% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
More threads 8 vs 2 6 more threads
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Higher Maximum operating temperature 64 °C vs 55 °C More than 15% higher Maximum operating temperature
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.77 GHz vs 3.2 GHz Around 50% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Significantly lower annual home energy cost 21.92 $/year vs 30.11 $/year More than 25% lower annual home energy cost
Significantly lower annual commercial energy cost 79.72 $/year vs 109.5 $/year More than 25% lower annual commercial energy cost
