I didn't realize how far back my old computers were... pre-Sandy Bridge. So when choosing this processor, I was thinking strictly in terms of future-proofing my new rig. By going with this vs. the 4790, I get DDR4 RAM and I know this is the latest and greatest, for all of what, 6 months? 3? 1?
This is more or less the flagship CPU for Skylake, and it shows. The performance is great. The OEM/tray SKU can often save some money, and comes with no extra frills; just a clear plastic container. No complaints.
Upgrading from a 4770k, and the improvement is amazing nearly double fold. on the cpu intensive games i played and streamed . Very Impressed and very happy
