Ivy Bridge questions - Page 2

post #11 of 16
If I'm correct Intel switches sockets like a pair of socks. AMD keeps the same sockets longer. In all fairness a pc is never future or upgradeproof. Even if you buy a nice 1155 mobo now and ivy bridge will use them, a mobo bought in a years time will probably have better features so even thought an ivy bridge cpu fits you're still behind on the most recent possibilities.

The most noticable, for performance upgrade you can do, is going with SSD.

However, Sandy can really boost your min FPS in many games VS your current CPU. Even with that GTX 285.

Oblivion is a good example, an old badly coded game. Actually, my Sandy keep it at a constant 60FPS Vsync on, whilst my Q9650@4GHz will drop down to 30FPS in some parts. Tested this with both my GTX 260 and GTX 570. This goes to show that this game scales from a faster CPU and had nothing more to gain from a more powerful GPU.

The sick thing is that the GTX 570 dropped the FPS just as far as the GTX 260 in that game, using the Q9650@4GHz. While the Sandy kept it at a constant 60FPS. Also, with Vsync disabled, Sandy has much, much higher FPS with both video cards VS the Q9650@4GHz.

And I've heard several reports from people upgrading from Q9xxx@4GHz to Sandybridge, that their Sandy brought new life in their somewhat old graphics cards and that it keep many of their games at a constant 60FPS.

This will of course vary from game to game. But my example with Oblivion only shows how powerful a Sandybridge really is.

Your system is actually a damn good one for gaming, and unless your just completely unhappy with it, then you should keep it till Ivy comes out. Cause you never know what new hardware will come out with it.

But if you upgrade now, and are hoping for a seamless transition, you might get bit in the but!

I've heard talk of quad channel memory, coming out with the Ivy???

Just my 2 cents...

Yep, thats just what I'm saying...who knows, till it's release?

So if your current system is still performing well for you, you might want to wait and see!
