I’m putting together a new PC and can’t decide between the 5820K, 5930K or 5960X. The 5960X performs really well in benchmarks but, as reviews seem to only test games and offline renderers, I don’t know if it will provide enough of a real world performance boost to justify the cost (over 2x the 5820K :eek:).
I’m upgrading from a 2500K, and would be overclocking whichever I get. It’ll be paired with 32GB DDR4, Samsung 850 SSD and a 390X once released.
Problem is my game’s getting to the point where it needs some engine modifications, and reports of 45min+ compile times are worrying to say the least. Plus compiling shaders, importing large assets and hot reload are already pretty slow.
So is the 5960X a worthwhile investment?
