i7 2700K vs i7 920 - Page 2

post #11 of 19
SSD performance is more about access times than anything, not saying you couldn't possibly notice a difference, just saying it's not going to be anywhere close to what you'd probably expect/like it to be. Whether I run my SSD's in RAID0 or regular mode doesn't really matter. The only reason I do it is because it will show up as a single disk for the OS that way.

As for the difference between 2700K at 5Ghz and a 920 at 4Ghz, I wouldn't (and I haven't) burn money on it.


If you want a noticeable performance difference in gaming then I'd suggest a new videocard, because that 285 is getting older (basically just like my 4890).

I have a 7970, haven't updated the profile though.

As to how far out out probably the end of April for Ivy.

For the whole IVY lineup a few months after that.

As to AMD Piledriver, Longer than that.
I'd wait for IVY releases.
And if you have the cash for more SSD's should be able to get a pretty good IVY chip
that would really make a difference.

Later;)

I would go with the 2700k and applicable mobo simply because it is more future proof. LGA 1366 is dead now, while Ivy Bridge is coming out soon, which will use the same socket at the 2700k. This will make for easy upgrades down the road. The 920 may seem like a good deal, and at one time it was, but not anymore.

lolwut?? Since when is a 920 running @ 4ghz considered "not a good deal" wth.gif If he were asking about upgrading his c2d system then yeah it wouldn't make sense to go from c2d to 1366. but since his system is already the 1366 platform and running along at a nice clip of 4ghz, i fail to see how that's "not a good deal"...

OP you might as well wait for ivy bridge before upgrading

The huge advantage with the 2700K will be power consumption. Real world performance difference is going to very slim, and most likely unnoticeable.

yeah... I agree on waiting. And if you mentioned not getting the top of the line Ivy Bridge, it will cost the same as current sandy bridge chips...

To tell you the truth, i might even skip the next gen Ivy Bridge chips and wait for Haswell as that will be a new architecture overall, not just die shrink and embedded graphics...
