I am thinking about building an X99 based system. So far I have looked at using an Intel i7-5820K 6 Core 3.6GHz LGA 2011-v3 with 15MB Cache; which is about $400 for  which I can afford.


Now, I understand that Intel is going to release Broadwell-E CPU’s and the Core i7-6800K. It will have 6 cores and 12 threads and come with 15 MB of L3 cache. Core i7-6800K will feature clock speeds of 3.40 GHz base and 3.60 GHz boost. It will also cost around $400.


It seems to me that they are basically the same CPU. Do you think it is better to wait for the Broadwell-E Core i7-6800K, and if so, what does it offer that the i7-5820K doesn’t offer?

Depends entirely what i7-6800K will cost. i7-6800K offers newer CPU architechture. I would not pay more than 50$ for it vs i7-5820K.
