Should i Buy a i7 2600k or Wait for Bulldozer ? - Page 2

post #11 of 46
Like i said if you want after effect to run super fast then get a 570 or 580 b/c it uses the cuda cores. It makes a big difference when you and effects and adjustments.

I could be wrong obviously since I'm just speculating but regardless the 2600k is blazing fast, and even if Bulldozer comes out and is better you're still going to have a very powerful chip.
Bulldozer doesn't have an on die GPU, unless you mean on "board" as in on the board itself...

I would agree with what others have said about going Nvidia for CUDA, as well as grabbing a Z board for Quick Sync love.

You can't do surround, but you can get a cheap gpu to display the third screen.

If you're serious about "max performance" check on the appraisal section, since your card is a confirmed unlocker you should draw more than what you'd get from Newegg. You also don't need a 580, a 480 would perform very well and they go for around $300 new, a bit less used.

What's this waiting business you speak of? Last time I heard BD will be released but not launched since no launch date is given. For all you know it may never launch.

I say screw AMD and go to the i5 2500k/i7 2600k, get 5ghz clock and stick around for a couple of years while you enjoy crazy levels of performance. Waiting is just dumb.

Ah, I thought Zambezi had on die graphics too. So I guess it doesn't then

Nah the first gen bulldozer chips won't have an on die gpu. The second gen will, AMD is bringing out Phenom IIs with on die gpus I believe to compete for the APU segment (desktops), as well as millions of other lower end low power APUs, MILLIONS.

Two 6950s would be faster than a single 580. Assuming 1GHz (unlocked) for both you'd get a 60%~ fps advantage (guessing) with the CF setup.

I would go with a Sandy Bridge chip for now.
Intel is getting faster at every turn lately and it's going to take AMD a little while to refine and whip their new architecture into shape. As badly as I hate to admit this, I really don't foresee AMD turning heads or making Intel break a drop of sweat until the 2nd retail revision of Bulldozer, or maybe even 2nd generation bulldozer which should be around next year.

How many do you see run them speeds 24/7? If your lucky it still takes 1.45-1.5v to reach that.

To answer OP, Just wait... Patience is a virtue and who knows what Bulldozer will be like.
