It has the same amount of cache per core as your 3930k.

 

 

And no, chances are slim to none it will compete closely with the 3930k in multithreading "score wise".

 

In anything that uses 4 cores or less it's probably going to beat the 3930k though.

Interesting. I'd more like Intel dropping prices, but at least they don't move upwards. Can't wait to see the final benchmark results of an i7-3770K. biggrin.gif

If you keep on waiting on an upgrade you will wait forever. Jump right in and enjoy the rig you built, it already has a future ahead of itself - and if you play games, it's going to be a while before a 2500k starts to decrease gaming performance.

100%

i just upgraded to a i7 2700k and i dont see myself upgrading my CPU at least for 12 - 18months Motherboard has a bigger chance of being upgraded before then

The cache sizes effect the performance none. Turn a 2600k's hyperthreading off and it will bench around the same as a 2500k, even tho it has 2mb more cache. The only thing the SB-E chips got over the original SB is more cache, higher bus/cpu ratio, and native 1600mhz quad channel memory support. In reality a 3930k is a 2600k with just 2 more cores, and 1600mhz quad channel memory support. Imo not even worth how much they cost.

If you really can't wait, just get a nice Z68 motherboard and a Sandy Bridge Celeron G530 dual core for $50. It will be much faster than your P4 and when IB comes out you can just do a drop-in upgrade to a 3770K since it will work in current Z68 motherboards.

Exactly what I did. Grabbed a G620.

FWIW, 1080p gaming with these is not bad at all. Skyrim actually runs great.

Got it to 104mhz base clock as well, 2.7ghz.. Seems the memory controllers are decent as well, have no issues running 1T CMD Rate.

18gb/s RAM is good enough for me. Considering no AMD CPU in existence can touch that without extreme overclocking, I'd say it's a win,

my face if prices are legit.

the real problem is justifying the extra cost to my landlord/mother(ie. didnt you just buy a computer, why are you spending another $350). can a 530/620 even play games without overheating/becoming bottlenecked?

"Ma I need this computer to save the world and make it big in the world" Build up on how your new computer could help you out for work/school or buy her something nice too haha thumb.gif For $50 that cpu should do better than your P4 at watching videos and gaming. Sandy bridge runs cool so you should be fine without overheating issues, the G530 would bottleneck with new beefier gpus but it sure would do better than your dying p4..

overheat... lol... these chips run amazingly cool. They consume SO LITTLE power and generate SO LITTLE heat, it's unbelievable (Idle ~5W, Load ~30-40). Ivy Bridge is going to be even crazier.

A G620 is actually an amazing gaming chip for ~$60. I don't know what P4 you have (edit: just saw you have a P4 550 .. so even worse than this 660 in the comparison unless it's OC'd), but here's a comparsion of a G620 vs a P4 660:
