Which one CPU?

  1. 6820 is necessary for you, get it

  2. 6700 is certainly enough, save your money

    I completed my 2016 MBP configuration but i cant decide on the CPU. I will order tomorrow. Please help me! I will use the device mostly for 2K video editing on FCPX (maybe 4K in the near future)

    6820 has 8mb cache
    6700 6mb cache

    The most important difference between these two CPUs seems to be this on paper. I think clockspeed differences will not be noticeable. Well is the cache memory difference really noticeable when using FCPX?

    Should I choose the model which is higher or should i save my money?

    The GPU will be more important than the CPU here. Save your money, the CPU bump is almost never worth it with a dedicated GPU

    Seconded. The 460 is gonna be more useful here than the slight CPU bump.

    He's right. Save your money. It's not worth that minuscule upgrade that might be a hair faster in the most extreme of circumstances.

    I posted this in another 2.6 vs 2.7 thread, but the info is the same.

    If you really care about getting a decent CPU, I think you should wait for next year refresh where they'll offer the 6770/6870hq

    I think i will prefer 2.7ghz for future-proof.

    There is no future proofing from 2.6 to 2.7GHz.

    I should definitely go with 6700? I will place order in a few hours but still havnt decided. Is it a waste of money to get 6820?

    No go higher. It'll make you feel better to get the 2.7GHz w 8GB cache.

    Sometimes it doesn't matter. It will make him feel good and he won't be second guessing himself. Sometimes peace of mind is worth the extra money. What's an extra $300 when you are in these price ranges?

    $300 can buy a nice bottle of scotch.

    I don't see any 2.7 option.
    If you get 2.7 model you don't only get a faster cpu but also a 500gb SSD and a faster gpu.
