Needing recomandations on Intel processor for new computer

I am going to build a computer and in the past I have always used AMD processors to build my computers, but this time I am wanting to use Intel.  
What Intel processor would you recommend that would equivalent to an AMD 6 core processor with between 3.5 and 4.0 Ghz speed?

This is comparing apples to oranges.  AMD Bulldozer (including Excavator Line)  and older chips consistently under-performed Intel Chips.  AMD has not really been competitive for about 10 years. The new RYZEN cpu's (released March 3rd)  and AM4 boards give you a lot more bang for the buck even in single threaded applications. Intel has reduced pricing on some chips by about 10%.
With this new architecture there are some teething bugs so expect bios updates for a while to address these issues.

To be honest I'd have thought that the question would have been the reverse.. i.e. have intel and want equivalent AMD

Why the switch been building AMD computers for years, but this what I'd recommend Intel Core i7-6700K 4GHz Processor

I appreciate the input I am getting.  This is for a customer of mine that would like to have a new computer by next week, so waiting another three months is really not an option.   I also need to go Intel because they are going to be running auto cad and Auto cad recommends Intel for their software.  (that is what my customer is telling me) .  
     I am also needing a decent graphics card if any of you have a recommendation that I would appreciate that also
