    Mind you, that part sells for more than $300, and it'll come soldered on the motherboard. Hardly a desktop CPU.

      Glad to see that in this article Michael tried to use the correct name "HD Graphics 4600" (although there was one slip somewhere around the middle of the article).

      Sadly most commenters here still don't grasp that and continue calling it "HD 4600"

        Well, the 6800K supports DDR3 2133, while the 5800K only 1866. There is a 14% gain there, both for CPU and graphics ...

          Blame Intel for coming up with the most convoluted naming scheme ever, as well as making constant jabs at AMD GPUs.

          The best one is the "GMA X4500HD" which was around around the time that the ATI X series was still very common, and several systems still came with X1250 iGPUs as well as the ATI HD series was out.

            It costs $468. Worse, it's OEM-only.

            There are "official" and "unofficial" RAM frequencies. You can run 2400MHz RAM on an eg. Z77 mobo + Ivy Bridge CPU just fine while it only advertises 1600MHz at most and you can do this for AMD too. The RAM you buy is certified to run at a rated speed, that's all, you basically overclock it if you run it above the advertised frequency by the CPU vendor, but it will be stable.

              The problem with that theory is that the A10-6800K natively supports DDR3 2133. The ram speed makes a substantial difference in GPU performance. Especially when you disable thermal throttling/power saving, since those settings have a negative effect on gaming performance even at stock speed.
