whats the fastest intell processor - Page 5  

post #41 of 103
in every benchmark that I have seen or done the 990x has beaten the 2600k. The 2600k is a good cpu for the money but the 990x you can really fine tune it to your sytem. And it all depends what you are doing and need your system for. Also what harware combination also has an impact. I personally think the 990x is top dog, and takes a lot more to oc it to really unlock its full potential.

What do you mean there? OC it? I'm not following.

You haven't seen many benchmarks then.

Lol, destroy may have been a bit strong, OK.
I was also considering the scoring as I see it on hwbot with the cpus overclocked to the max, where it isn't just 15% difference, more like 30% or so. With regular cooling there is less destruction.

I have, the 2600k is faster clock for clock so will usually beat the 980/990 in apps that use 8 threads or less. For people gaming & not doing multithread I could only recommend SB.
Also depends on overclocking, the 980/990 can still overclock higher than most 2500k/2600k when going all out. Even in single thread benchies like superpi where sandy has a strong advantage i can still beat a lot of them.

I'm well aware of this, don't know why you're telling me? As you can see I quoted precision351 and was responding to his post.

In hind sight I may have bought a 2600k for the greater overclocking potential but when I bought it I did not overclock. Certain tasks do favor number of cores over speed. For example package compile time in Linux were faster using 12 threads at 3.5 vs 4.0 with 8 threads. I do a lot of that but it's not like I need it to for my salary where time is money and it is not like I would be waiting hours instead with a 2600k. Still I am happy with my 980 and do not regret the decision.

The one downside is the sheer cost of the 980x makes me much more hesitant to overclock as replacement cost is nearly a third of the whole PC. I pretty much keep it at 1.30 max vcore and vtt.

If you are answering the question of which Intel cpu is the biggest,fastest, badest for the average person who will not overclock the answer is probaly the 990x.

The 990x is better. End.

Would I get it ? Clearly not. The difference between it and a little slower CPU (2600k) is way to huge to make me spend that much money.

Money not a problem ? 990x
Wanna save 700$ ? 2600k

Wow Intel guys are divide a lot on here. Yea 990x is King, but 2600k is Queen. Both Intel, so no need to be so upset over this.
