Sorry i caught up late, but by the time i am trying to look around for building my new computer i see the forum flooded with 2500k and 2600k instead of 930's and 950's.
Q4 i used to see people talking about 920's 930's and until a few days back 950's. All of a sudden since last few days i am seeing a new contender 2500k and 2600k. I have not been able to catchup though, but just wanted to know.. what is better in terms of speed and performance.. i7 950 or 2600k??
I am looking for building a high performance pc for software development reasons, for which i need a PC with better performance.
On anandtech, the 2600k is far superior to the 950 (wins in around 25 benches, generally by over 15% and loses slightly in just 1 test) and the 2500k wins by 5-10% in most benches against the 950 and loses in a few. The 2500k also wins in 3-4 benches against the 2600k.
The 2500k is reasonably better than the 950, for much much less, the 2600k is slightly better than the 2500k for $100 more.
