Anyone Interested in the i5 2550K ? - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Considering the price for a 2550k is higher than a 2500k at Microcenter, I wouldn't buy a 2550k. It's essentially the same chip without an integrated GPU for a higher price. Sure, it has a 100mhz clock speed advantage, but you can get that yourself by bumping up the unlocked multi once. You may as well get the CPU that has the GPU just in case you ever need it. I'd be interested in the 2550k if it was priced appropriately, but right now there's no reason to sacrifice features for no gain (more cache or significantly lower price would be nice). Adding a tiny bit of clock speed on an unlocked chip is stupid and I can't believe 2550k chips are selling.

Kinda hard to argue with Intel's own information here.

That's not Intel's official news. Above all that picture is photoshoped to make a point.

We previously reported on several new Core i5 desktop microprocessors, expected in the second week of February. Core i5-2380P, i5-2450P and unlocked i5-2550K Sandy Bridge CPUs will come with slightly increased core frequency, and with disabled on-chip GPU. A week earlier than anticipated Intel added all three SKUs to official price list. The company also added prices for 4 single- and dual-core Mobile Celeron models, that were launched earlier this month.

This is a logical move as Intel must have a stack of chips with fully working cores and other parts, but the IGP isn't functional. On the other hand, it's good to keep in mind that a disabled IGP means no Quick Sync. Since the price and specification differences between the models with IGP and the models without is so small, we recommend buying a model with the graphics as you never know when you might want/need Quick Sync or more video outputs. The 100MHz increase in frequency isn't worth the loss of the IGP.

Well if you are buying from microcenter then just get a 2500k if you need to have an i5.

I don't see how people see the IGP as a handicap so far no one has had any problems clocking these guys to 4.5+ and I for one had a use for the IGP, I sold my cards,and didn't have a card to replace it so therefore i was like well good thing i have an IGP to use while my card comes it. I see it as just a nice thing to have.

And I agree with what trumpet has to say about the 2550k, Just think about it if you made cpu's that couldn't utilize the IGP what would you do with them? Throw them away or try to sell them with a bumped multiplier?

I don't see Intel risking such a situation as selling chips with "crippled" IGPs. They have been working a lot harder at maintaining a good reputation with their customers, as opposed to AMD and their willingness to sell their processors with "crippled" cores. So I do see Intel actually producing chips without the IGP to meet some customer feedback, and yes... destroying the ones that don't pass QC testing.

Intel is just like any other business, maximizing profit and minimizing lose. Tossing away CPU that doesn't meet QC is not maximizing profit and minimizing lose. Business 101 anyone?

I got the i5 2550K for about 60 bucks as I had a gift cert from a family member and since I don't live anywhere near a microcenter I had to order online. the 2550k was the only SB cpu that wasn't labled as in-store only. I can't tell you what a normal i5 2500k does but I think this was well worth 60 bucks

http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2270039

5.4ghz @ 1.51v ... if I had better cooling options atm I would push a little higher to find its max. as it is right now I run a 24/7 stable 4.8ghz with a CM hyper 212 evo with 2x120mm fans in push / pull.
@ 5.1Ghz it was running fine but I got concerned that the temps were hitting 70 so I backed it down until I get a water kit installed later this week.

nicely done! smile.gif makes me feel more confident in my purchase - i got mine for 159.99 friday night at micro center. i'm waiting for my asus z68 pro/gen 3 motherboard to arrive tomorrow and gonna slap a prolimatech megahalem and see what i can get out of it. i have two exams this week though so i won't be able to post my results until this weekend.
