96 OK I feel a lil less young. 91 is when it all went downhill

And that's basically how ivy sounds to me. Lower clocks that sandy but better IMC and possibly better pcie handling

I've got the same experience on IB-E so far.

...very interesting - I hope they lift the NDA soon (2 1/2 weeks?)...looking forward to your results ! ninja.gif

One reason why I have not pushed my 3970X further than I already have (staying just below / around 1.5 vCore with very few exceptions, and with safe VCCSA/VTTs) is that it might have to last until Haswell-E comes out (and then potentially do some commercial duty) if I skip Ivy-E...

I have been fortunate enough to have a Sandy-E that runs low-v to 5.125GHz and with an IMC that easily handles 2666MHz mem, so the last thing I want to do is degrade it now....was thinking about a Ivy-E 49xx and may yet do that if I find a binned one that actually makes it worth it...

...but what I have read so far about Ivy-E (admittedly early) tests, the performance 'step-up' seems to be a bit like Ivy 3770K to Haswell 4770K (also not worth it IMO, at least for me given my delidded 3770K in another machine, though you never know about future steppings)...a nice Haswell-E 8core / DDR4 on the other hand... smile.gif

The only benefit so far on IB-E are the better IMC and PCI-e lanes

Looks like I'm not the only one testing retail IB-E http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showpost.php?p=2971097&postcount=232

This guy is on SS but 1,36 vcore still looks good for 5 GHz thumb.gif

...nice link - thanks ! smile.gif The one thing which also comes into play are the 'right' BIOS upgrades...I'm hoping for retail Ivy-E level-tests / reviews with the latest BIOS upgrades before I form an 'upgrade opinion'...just comes down whether one gets an 'average' or even below-average Ivy-E coming from a strong Sandy-E...

...there are enough folks I know in the LN2 community and they usually know quite quickly what the first retail stepping level performances are really like as they go through several of them at a time...from what I can gather, they do like the much better cold-bug performance of the Ivy-Es, but are underwhelmed by other 'improvements', other than the ones you mentioned (IMC etc)...none of this would be an issue if I were building a brand new machine on a RIVE...I'd likely go for the Ivy-E (once I had read the first retail reviews)...it's upgrading from a good Sandy-E which is a '?'

I was disappoint to see they only tested 1866mhz, I want to know if the IMC behaves like 3770k with higher frequency, darn NDAs spoil all the early info...

I'm doing 2666 MHz now on a 2400 MHz platinum set (stock timings are 9-11-11-31 2T and I'm running 11-13-13 tongue.gif )
