that's just it... the game is changing, it always does... the trend goes on, acceptance is slow but comes the norm looking back on it.. the future trend is and has been for awhile "lower power with more performance"
cookies snapshot was pulling 30 watts less there guaranteed... but it's hard to get folks to open up HWMonitor for some reason lol.
on my board I am sitting at 47x100@2133 currently with some lowered ram timings, I am benching significantly above 13% to 19% (3820 vs 4820k) board for board ghz for ghz in Aida, that's good enough for me as a starting point.
other sites reporting 10% above setting for setting and board for board 3930k v 4930k may be closer to correct, but the 3820 couldn't do a 47x100... the 4820k can.
5ghz will be 5ghz for a 3### series, specially when 4.8ghz 4### series will do slightly better and with memory speed to match its less power draw... the SB-E will have to do 5+ghz to catch up on benchies soon enough, as bios mature and more people get 2800+ kits ect.
5ghz epeen or not... time is fast and the IB-E may get a Rev?
come to think of it... why don't we compare to AMD anymore? is it bcoz a lower ghz Intel chip will out perform a higher ghz AMD?
IB-E could just be giving more Xeon-like performance
PCIe 3.0 √
1866mhz imc √
more performance lower freq √
lower W √Edited by Butter Chicken - 9/25/13 at 11:03am
