So I gaining ready because that my very first PC build, yet do i wait because that the 7th generation, Kaby Lake or buy an i5 6600k (which is what ns was plannig come do). Or do I wait for Kaby Lake, and also then buy Skyl ake for the decreased price. Apparently, Kaby Lake is coming the end in January 2017. Plz help.

You are watching: Wait for kaby lake

edit: The idea through the build is it gift future proof, through no lot cost.

If you choose not to wait for Kaby Lake, you won't be missing much.

Kaby lake is no a dice shrink or design redesign. It is one "optimization" of the existing Skylake architecture.

From beforehand reports, we're only seeing a 1-2% IPC advancement over Skylake. This can not also be true since this is in ~ the margin of error because that benchmarking.

The main benefits that Kaby lake seem come be power optimization together always. That will most likely be a bit an ext power efficient than Skylake and maybe able come hit a bit greater overclocks. The share clocks it seems ~ to be a 100-200 MHz bump over their Skylake equivalents.

Bottom line:

If you need to have your computer now, you're not lacking out on anything important by going with Skylake over Kabylake.
