I still use an i5 2500 , desktop processors are stagnating like smartphones
Grey1213, 30 Aug 2016Can someone explain Intel's naming sense? I can't wrap my head around how it works. It seems s... moreAs in what? The name of the processor series (i.e. Skylake) or the model names (i.e. 3570)? First number is obviously the generation number and the rest refers to the different product lines in that generation (higher usually being better), the series name usually refers to the original Project name of a certain architecture format and are kinda randomly inspired. The letter you sometimes find at the end of a model number/name (like 3570K) usually means processor can handle a bit of overclocking, etc. Well, that's my understanding of it anyway... May be right, probably is wrong. Some know-it-all will be sure to correct me don't worry.
divis200, 30 Aug 2016PCIE 3.0 has existed and was supported in CPUs for a long time. Why did you have to add it?I think it's over thunderbolt. I think it will lead to huge benefit in external gpu!
ithehappy, 30 Aug 2016Excellent! And I just had a 6700k based system bought just last month!Don't worry :D the people who mainly benefit are the laptop users. You should have known btw! And desktop processors take a while to release and even a 2500k is good enough xD

So on the desktop side of things, no need to go above 4th gen and 5th gen i7s if we're talking real-life performance.
