The Core i7-6700K matched the performance of the 4790K when encoding with HandBrake, allowing for 355fps. This isn't exactly progress but at least it wasn't slower.
The Core i7-6700K was just 2% slower than the 4790K when comparing 4K encoding performance with Hybrid.
As we have come to expected the Core i7-6700K delivered similar performance to the 4790K, this time when testing with the x264 HD Benchmark.
Finally, we once again find the i7-6700K delivering 4790K-level performance, this time when encoding with Video Master Works.
