i7 920 worth upgrading to i7 2600k? - Page 2

post #11 of 39
Correct me where I'm wrong: LGA2011 will be Ivy Bridge and if he buys 1155 he'll be good for the current generation of Sandy Bridge processors. Not sure if Sandy Bridge-E will be 1155 or not. Ivy Bridge is definitely LGA2011.

EDIT: Sorry if this is rough info. I'm not up-to-date on Intel's upcoming stuff... Been glued to Bulldozer news.

Isn't it the other way around, 2011 for SB-E?

You're actually right... Either way, I don't think either is going to be 1155. My bad.

Ivy will be on 1155, but it's better to buy a sata card than a new CPU that won't give any real difference compared to 920, wait for Ivy and then upgrade. (if not building new)

920 doesn't compete with a 980x. A 2600k knock heads with a 980x for 1/4 of the price. The 2600k with the same GPU runs faster than a 1366 setup with the 980x sometimes, not always like in Metro 2033 and BBC2. The 2600k smokes the 920 in encoding/rendering, and comes close to a 980x there too with 2 less cores. For the right person, 2600k is what you want right now if you need to build today, not in 6 months. You get a lot more performance and a lot less heat from SB, not to mention 5ghz+ sometimes.

We're on OCN. Who runs stock clocks on OCN? It whatever you can run it at. Here's a link to my comparison test here. http://www.overclock.net/intel-cpus/...4-4ghz-vs.html

I did this at 4.4ghz on both. I wasn't comparing nor would I a stock 980x vs a 5ghz 2600k. I would compare the 980x as far as you could push it vs the 2600k as far as you could push it tho. Same cooling on both would be more like 980x 4.4-4.6ghz and 2600k 4.8-5.2ghz. Just because the 2600k can clock higher doesn't mean it's not fair to use those results as that's how most would run it right?

You haven't explained yourself at all.

Are you buying it? It seems to me like your brother is buying it, and you might as well. In that case no.

I still am confused as to what you exactly mean.
