I am setting up another Adobe CS6 machine for my video guy. I am on the fence now. I was looking at Intel's new I7-6700k Quad core that uses dual channel memory setup. On the other side, I'm considering I7-5820 6-core processor. The 6700k uses the 1151 socket that addresses memory thru dual channel setup. The 5920 uses the latest 2011-v3 socket & addresses the quad channel setup.

My client had been leaning towards the 6700k because it is a new processor that costs about the same as the 5820. So he is thinking that he is getting a new improved processor at the cost of the "older" 5820.

I'm leaning towards the 5820 due to the increased cores AND the quad channel memory. It would stand to reason the increased cores & channels would be the best overall.

Could anyone who has had experience with these CPU's give any more info one-way or another?
