[SP] Intel's Unreleased Core i7-2700K CPU Overclocked to 5GHz on Air - Page 7

post #61 of 91
Sounds great for a new system but I have yet to find a game I can't run at 4.8ghz.

Can you find a game that you can't run at 3ghz?

BF 3, The new Need For Speed (It hasn't been released and I can't remember the name of it), Need For Speed Pro Street and there is more I just can't think of any right now.

Not at 1.35vcore. My SB won't hit 5+ unless I use 1.45vcore, which is a little excessive for my taste.

That's got to be the worst feeling in the world.

When I moved from my Core 2 Duo E8400 C0 to my Core 2 Duo E8600 E0, it definitely seemed like the stepping made a bigger impact rather than the default clock speed. Granted, the multipliers were locked, so the higher default multiplier aided me in getting higher since the RAM became a limit, but since that's much less so with these chips, I'd imagine you're right.

This is a lot more then a die shrink
The extra transistors are likely due largely to the IGP and/or cache, no?

The multiplier is an artificial limit, no?

RAM support is merely an official sanction and little more, so far as I know (I could be wrong).

3D transistors are a sizable deal, yes, but we saw big changes with the 45nm Wolfdale too with it's then new high K metal gate transistor implementation. Whether this new 3D transistor translates to another Conroe to Wolfdale type of increase remains to be seen, however.

Bclk tinkering is a part of the LGA 2011 platform chips. It has nothing to do with Ivy Bridge. Sandy Bridge-E will have it, and Ivy Bridge on LGA 1155 will not.

Yes, but more cache is always better and the IGP will help with Quick Sync.

Yes, but SB already hits its limits around 5.6-5.8Ghz anyway.

It means it'll definitely support it, whereas its usually a maybe if it's not officially supported.

It likely will.

Indeed.

I have the slightest niggling regret that i ordered my 2600k 2 nights ago... =/ maybe i should have waited im kinda hoping that the price will be high and the differences be minimal with this now just so i dont feel like a tool.
Still UBER EXCITED to be getting the 2600k im upgrading from a phenom x2...
my face > >>> :O...
Hopefully

I would like to add that IV is going to have slightly higher IPC than SB according to anandtech
