    Would a z270 be a beneficial upgrade for a M8 Hero z170 6700k users

    So I was just curious would a z270 be a beneficial upgrade for a Maximus VIII Hero z170 6700k users

    Starting off I already know that there isn't much of a performance gain by upgrading to a 7700k (I think it was like 3% or 7% gain) and if you overclock the 6700k the gain is less than that.

    but there are so many little bugs in the M8 Hero z170 i am wondering if the new M9 Hero z270 will have fixed these bugs like sonic studio, Ai Suite and etc...

    with that being said

    - will the 6700k work on a z270 (I mean it should both are 1151 socket)
    - will the z170 users get the same software (Sonic Studio 3 instead of the Sonic Studio 2)
    - will the z170 users run the same bios as the z270 users
