[Fudzilla] Core i7 3960X is up to 36 percent better than i7 990X - Page 9

post #81 of 139
For the people that do intensive work this would be great. But for all other people just doing benchmarks its a waste. Ivy Bridge will perform just as good as the sandy-e and consume loads less power.

though I understand why you are saying this (see'ing 990x vs 2600k), Intel does try it's best to differentiate the two CPU's (LGA2011 vs LGA1155) :

* higher amount of SATA ports (to attract server builders, yes even NAS Builders)
* PCIe 3.0 (to attract people who need higher bandwidth, not on video cards, rather on high-end Raid/HBA cards)
* Quad Channel RAM (for some applications who heavily relies on memory bandwidth - see ZFS for example)
* Very high L3 Cache, 12MB/15MB - some applications (usually not for home use) will love this
* 2 more cores, 4 more threads - to attract people who mainly use high threaded applications or VM's

if you plan only to game on your PC, save your money and get a 1155 SB, or wait for IB if you can afford 5 months of patience

That's my problem... Patience.

We'll see how much the motherboard's are then i'll make my decision

IB will remain 4c/8t on the top-of-the-line mainstream CPU as there would be no need to cut into the enthusiast market by releasing a 6c mainstream processor.
I thought you were talking about over all, not solely the mainstream platform.

However, releasing a hexacore processor for 1155 wouldn't cannibalize socket 2011 because an octo-core is already possible at 32nm to take the place of the enthusiast.

Using that same logic, they wouldn't have a 3920k quad-core for socket 2011 since there is also a quad-core for socket 1155.

THIS is what an upgrade SHOULD look like. I'm counting down the days until my 2600k is just another obsolete CPU...

well, its not necessarily using the same logic as LGA2011 will enable BCLK overclocking...

Also, as someone stated earlier, potential buyers are often after the large amount of SATA ports, and may not necessarily need a 6c/12t processor.

I have speculated previously on this, see quote below,

1st Gen:

I7: enthusiast socket only, 4c/8t
I5: mainstream 4c only

2nd Gen:

I7: mainstream 4c/8t
I5: mainstream 4c only

3rd Gen: (?)

I7: mainstream 6c/12t
I5: mainstream 4c/8t, 6c only

Although i doubt Mainstream would feature HT though

Something i will probably never buy because its so hard to resell high end parts. IVY will probably have better IPC and OC better making this platform useless for gamers and even high end multiple GPUs considering IVY will have PCI3

Can someone finally clarify this for me, I've been dying to know.

Ivy Bridge is codename for Sandy Bridge E and will go under the X79 Platform as Socket 2011.

Correct?

It's a die shrink → 22nm.

LGA 1155 (and the mobile community) will also be acquiring Ivy Bridge.
