One of these 5820k could actually improve my current rendering-time by 200% and I've to decide between a 500 4790k-based system or a 800 5820k one. 300 isn't that much actually, given that the 5820k has 50% more threads to render on.
I could use my current i5-3450 as a render-node for sure, but the 5820k would still beat the combination of an i7-4790k as primary and an i5-3450 as a render-node... and I'd use actually less power with the 5820k as a solo-system.
EDIT: I don't know how good the 4-core Celeron J1900 performs as a rendering-node, but if it's somewhat acceptable, then maybe four of them could be used as rendering-farm drawing only 15 Watt each under load and costing only 70 per board+CPU.
EDIT 2: Just looked it up, and the 16 threads of four J1900 would just equal a single 4770k in Cinebench with it's 8 threads. Same goes for the Athlon 5350, which doesn't perform any better than the J1900 while using double the power.

I'm not rendering animations or 100% fotorealistic images, but only stills to illustrate websites, brochures, flyers etc without having to rely on stock-images. I'm using mainly Blender and DAZ where I can quickly throw scenes together and then render them via LuxRender in a somewhat decent quality that strikes as realistic at first glance.
