I would really appreciate a benchmark between....

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
An i7 920 vs an i5 2500k.
Why? I have an i7 920 @ 4.0ghz and would like to upgrade to a rig with an i5 2500k but cannot find any reasonable benchmarks.

Of the few I have found that compare the two, the reviewer is using really poor GPU's such as a GTX 280 at an average resolution, where the CPU is really going to shine in making that FPS difference. Not what I need.

Does anyone know of/have a benchmark or have an idea of how an i7 920 compares to an i5 2500k when gaming with a high end gpu? OC'd or not, I'd love to get an idea.

This should help maybe a tiny tad~ :3

Tests with high end gpus are hard to find, because they're not very good tests. If your video card is doing all the work, the margins will be too close to each other, making it even more difficult to tell a difference between processors.

lol thanks.
THis is exactly one of the reviews I'm referring to though
I quote: "GeForce GTX 280 at 1680 x 1050 and medium quality defaults. There's no AA/AF enabled."

Don't waste your money yet. In 7 months when ivy bridge is released then you should consider upgrading
