Better Upgrade Path? Lga 2011 Vs 1155

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
All over the forums there's been debate of what's the better choice to go with... 2011 or 1155. Answer is simple. What do you want to do with your computer.

1155's upgrade path is pretty basic with up to 4 cores and IPC improvements from Ivy Bridge and Haswell

2011's is a tad more interesting. January will bring 8 core Xeons and IB-E will bring 10 core Xeons. Just to put that in perspective about 2.5Xs faster then a 2700K in multithreaded apps. Its pretty insane to even think about.

Also 2.5x as expensive..it won't be cheap!

Good thread,

I'm fedup of the gamers' comments about the non use of the X79 platform... all that because in their gamer world multithreaded applications doesn't exist...

And X79 ISN'T MAINSTREAM so yeah it's expensive, but if 3930K is above a 990x, it will not. But anyway we repeat the same things since a month now

I would never buy X79 for my home/gaming pc, but I'm very interested in it for at work where I use Autodesk Inventor and that can utilize up to 16 cores. I would love to have a 8core/16thread cpu for this program. That's where the X79 will really shine for me. From the gamers point of view, of course it's not worth it. You can get the same gaming performance with a $120 motherboard and $180 cpu. You won't even be able to get a X79 motherboard for that price. I stand by the gamers comments when someone wants a gaming rig. For us that will use X79 for good reasons, 1155 will not come close to it's performance.

It's all about what you plan on doing with the pc. If your someone that is going to game, and encode/render not for work purposes but for your own use at home, I would say X79 is a bit much. Does it matter that your torrent movie that you just got encodes in 5min instead of 10min? I would still say go 1155 unless time is money. I render real high res pictures at work that do take up to 30mins sometimes and I need to render 4 or 5 of them. If X79 could do that in 10mins, it would be worth my company getting me a X79/8core setup at whatever cost as it will save them money over time.

1155 is more than enough for any home pc. X79 is overkill for home use IMO, but it's not a waste by no means.

Mainstream has always been the better choice then Enthusiast for Gaming.

1155 > 2011

1156 > 1366

I said it before in another thread. Whats the point in buying another quad core with the 3700K when i can buy a 6 core 3930K or an 8 core E5-2687W

According to the slides leaked a few days ago, desktop Haswell is going to require a new socket, LGA1150, so the only upgrade for LGA1155 is Ivy Bridge.
