I like this comment because it makes it sound like this processor can only handle surfing the web. Intel sure has screwed things up because my i5 6500 can easily surf the web AND play games.
Pure bullshit right here. You have no idea what you are talking about.
??

As the post below you pointed out the CPU mark score is ~60% higher for the 11th gen 11600

+60% is not 'negligible' ..

Not that I think its worht the extra $100 for most folks though.

Was planning to buy i5-11600k. Not planning to overclock, do you think the extra $100 would be worth it?

Hmm, the i5-10400F is $140.99 but the coupon doesn't apply to that one.

It's not worth it; the difference between the same 10th and 11th gen intel equivalents is extremely negligible to begin with. Either get this or the 10600K for overclocking, if you're not overclocking then get this.

The AlderLake announcement is also in a week and a half if you want next gen instead.

The i5-11600k is
  • Big, Better Faster it does give you more power (CPU Mark - 20004 vs 12374)
  • Gives off more almost double the heat (Max TDP 125W vs 65W)

If you are NOT planning to overclock, I say save the $100.

But the final decision is up to you.

$350 gets your triple the processing power 10850k. But this is way cheaper-- and just fine if you plan to do light web surfing only.

Watch a 4k 60 FPS Youtube video and your processor will fry

I said the equivalent which is the 10600K. Most of the 11th Gen use way more power and some are actually worse for gaming.

There's no point in going for a 11th gen at all which is why I brought up the 10600K instead for overclocking which goes for $50 cheaper at my MC over the 11600K. Or the 10400 if not overclocking, I guess I wasn't clear.

still, i5-11600k is 30% higher CPU mark than i5-10600k
Yes the 11th gen uses more power. (but thats irrelevant to my point)

The Anandtech link shows pretty decent increase in performance on average across the sample of benchmarks.

There may be some exceptions on specific tests, but it is just not correct to say its 'negligible' in general.
