post #72 of 1172
wow this seems to be a great thread!!! I currently have a X6 and was excited to see that bulldozer was coming out because that meant in due time I would have an upgrade option if i needed it... It seems to me though that BD isnt the best and is really just good for applications that would use 8 cores. I dont do anything that would use 8 cores so i find it useless. I am not actually sure why i would need to up grade my cpu but i would like to get a new mobo for sure and if i do, i want to get a good one. but now that i have seen what is going on over at the Intel side of things i think i would like to go this route biggrin.gif When it comes to cpus i really dont know much... But i do know that ivy bridge will be coming out early-early mid 2012 and Sandy Bridge-E later. I would like to know what everyone here has to say about these cpus... basically i need a summary of what is so good about sandy bridge-e and Ivy bridge. i know this is asking alot and i know that it is probabaly all on the first page but as i said i dont really know much about cpus... so sorry for the long post but please help me with this. I would love to come to the Intel side if i can see that i would have use for these new cpus!!! Thank you so much for your time and please help me, once again thanks biggrin.gif

Ok, I would advise you to wait till IB comes out, It will be released early to mid 2012, it will be Intels mainstream CPU's and will probably be 6 core at a good price range. Core performance will be up ~ 20% it is predicted and will support 4k resolution on the iGPU. Don't upgrade anything yet! Maybe just an SSD. wink.gif

if you had a choice of upgrading to ivy bridge or sandy bridge-E what would you guys choose.
i have heard SB-E is due for Q4 2011 and ivy bridge Q2 of next year, are these still correct as far as anybody knows?

I'm not sure yet, but I'm leaning towards Ivy Bridge because then I can keep my motherboard. So if I upgrade, then I will try to go the route that costs me the least amount of money.

As TC said above, I too will most likely get ivy, but im still keeping my options open for SB-E, we'll see biggrin.gif


On another note, hopefully in the weekend I'll try and see what I can do in the OP and the rest of my posts, target is to get everything a little more up to date and a bit more info here and there. I have a few articles that I have to kinda read up to get familiar with the new tech, but hopfully get it done soon. Also now that BD is out, hopefully we'll see a little more activity in this thread, im sure you know what I mean!! rolleyes.gif

Catch you guys later!! This shall be THE SB-E and Ivy blog lol lachen.gif

Should I build a 2500k PC now and sell my i7 PC, then later upgrade to Ivy Bridge, or just wait?

Eventually I'm going to have to upgrade anyway, so I figured now would be good and probably easier.

I would do it, you'll get far better value for your 920 now then you will when Ivy is released. Get sandy now and then upgrade to ivy biggrin.gif
