[PCPOP] Intel Core i7-3770K (Ivy Bridge) Review - Page 9

post #81 of 160
The results are as to be expected and won't change substantially or even modestly by their release in April. We can consider these results to be almost identical with that of Retail shipping Processors. The bottom line to these results is that if you have Sandy Bridge then your best recommendation and the most logical/intelligent decision is to wait for Haswell on LGA1150.

There is nothing substantial or revolutionary in Ivy Bridge other than PCI-E 3.0 (which has been shown to show little difference in terms of frames between 2.0 and 3.0 on the 7970) and Native USB 3.0 support.

For those building a new system or considering LGA1155 at this point then Ivy Bridge is the most logical choice but for those already with an LGA1155 platform a 'side-grade' that Ivy Bridge offers is not worth as one poster stated dismantling half the system for a minimal IPC improvement.

and another
http://www.guru3d.com/article/core-i5-2500k-and-core-i7-2600k-review/14

lol, do you think the average user here could careless about cinebench scores? In GAMING scenarios, Sandy Bridge is far far better than a 980/990x, period. Like the above poster said, if you want to drop $1000 just to post screenshots for e-peen, go right ahead.

The 'computing power' you speak of is only realized in applications that take ADVANTAGE of such power. If you're running a game or application that is coded for 4 threads, your 980x means jack. Clock for clock it gets beaten handily, and since they don't OC nearly as well as SB, the lead will increase even more. Why do you think so many people have bought them since release? It's not just because of the price. The same people running 2500/2600k rigs, are sporting multiple 580s/6970s/7970s, so it's not a budget issue. It's just not necessary to those that don't use apps that USE the power. Of course benchmarks will always make use of every core available, theoretical or not. I could careless if someone gets more 'points' than me in a benchmark, but if it involves frames per second, I'm all for the upgrade.

These are 22nm chips though, they will likely have a lower max voltage. They might clock a little better than sb, but probably not by much.

You are forgetting increased overclock potential. This is overclock.net isn't it? I'd happily trade in my 4.8Ghz 2600K for a 5.2ghz 3770K....

Ok, let me try this one more time...

EDITED:

So, what would you rather upgrade..

i7-2600k to this, or add another video card and/or a larger or extra monitor?

I'd take a bigger video card, like Kepler or something instead...

Hiya guys, I assume that review was done on a z68 board right ? so when the z77 boards come out, there might be more stability + efficiency and therefore higher overclocks, and a tiny amount mabye 2-3% performance increase in general ?

Unless I'm wrong and that was done on a z77 board. But if it on the z68 boards I'm pretty sure on z77 you could get that 5ghz on lower voltages and therefore push clocks higher, and again 2-3% performance increase from the board itself... don't newer gen boards provide a small amount of performance increase ?

It's all speculation till we see a professional trustworthy source benchmark this thing on a Z77 Board, indeed.
