I haven't seen a quad SLI/Fire compare between a 3930K and a 2700K yet so how can you make that assumption. People running X79 don't run just 1 card.

Clearly the CPU score is much higher. Yet the video not so much. With PCie3 utilizing 95.x amount of Bandwidth and many mobo companies not telling the honest truth about Z68 readiness for PCie3 you may want to reconsider if its worth it. Z68 chipset in PCIe2 currently only able to utilize 85% of Video card potential. Only some MoBo z68 chipsets are ready for PCIe3. Seems AsRock is and according to Asrocks ads Gigabyte is one of the Mobo Manufacturers misleading people.

Can anyone confirm Asrocks claims on the Z68 Chipset?

Gaming or CAD or any other use of your 3d card is not affected by the slower speed of PCIe 2.0. Maybe some paging operations when you alt-tab out of a game, but other than that... PCIe 3.0 also have 128b coding, I wonder if that adds latency to the transfers?

I agree I will be curious to the untold gains once I ditch my gpu bottleneck and move up to 660's or 670's in Sli.

next week when i finally get my mb ill run 3 and 4 way sli on the 3930k, ill try to oc it to at least 5300mhz and compare to a 5700-5800mhz 2600k (the 3 way anyway;)

Final stable clock for me is @ 4.8 1.496 under load. I won't push it over 1.5 as my cooling is "sub-par" for that level or higher. Was getting occasional low voltage bsods with it at 4.9 at the voltage above. 80c in prime is hot enough for me. A solid 50% overclock.

A thicker rad is out of the question as I have less then 1mm Clarence between the vrm heatsink and the bottom of my h100's fans.

3960X faster across the board against a 2600K clocked 200Mhz higher.

the extra cache and extra 2 cores do wonders

With the rumored 20% increase in core performance over the current sandy bridge cores, I think its easy to say Ivy Bridge will be a huge hit. Also with price tags most likely lower then Sandy Bridge chips. I know for a fact im waiting to see how they are. Shouldn't be long GEN3 boards have already flooded the market. thumb.gif

From a pure enthusiast standpoint yes ivy is awesome in theory at this point. However onbthe flipside unless ivy 2011 is significantly faster in performance per ipc, there will be zero reason for me to upgrade. However I intend to replace my 2500k due to the supposively much improved igp.
