Question i7 6700k Skylake Performance?


I was wondering: has anyone tried out the i7 6700k processors with the EW libraries? If so, how many instruments are you able to run simultaneously? I've been thinking about making an upgrade an was wondering what kind of performance to expect.

The full system would be:

OS: Windows 8.1
Processor: i7 6700k @ 4.00GHz
Motherboard: Asus B150 PRO
Ram: 16GB

Thanks again!

That's a difficult question to answer. It also depends on what patches are loaded, what audio interface you are using interface, etc. Also, you won't get far with 16GB Ram, as this greatly determines how many patches you can load. I would go at least 32GB, preferably 64.
