[TS] Intel Core i7-3820 Processor Review - Page 3

post #21 of 47
Honestly I have yet to see anything so compelling that I just have to replace my X58 build. I have a 2600k as a dedicated folder but for my gaming rig the X58 is still my first choice.

Kinda the same reasons I went with the 3960X. And the fact that I couldn't find any 3930K's... redface.gif

Honestly it seems pointless to release a quad core socket 2011 chip.

If you need any of the features of x79 (i.e more pcie lanes) then that pretty much means you are running quad gpus since 1155 can run 3 gpu's perfectly fine with the nf200 chip. And if you are planning on running quad gpu's why would you even consider buying the 3820 over the 3930k, you would obviously have enough money to spend that the cost wouldn't make a difference.

For me I don't have a desktop and doing a fresh build from ground up. Doesn't make any sense for short term savings with 1155 vs long term support with 2011. The 3820 is just my way of being able to afford to buy into the platform. I will eventually get a better chip but for now it is more than I will need.

So many misinformed LGA1155 users.

Because even with a NF200 on a motherboard, your CPU is still limited to 16 lanes. All NF200 does add PCI-e lanes to the motherboard but not the CPU.

Its the sites that have less than 100 reviews/sales normally from what I have googled and all have 310-315.00 on the price. I haven't seen any of the big legit guys put it up for sale yet.
