[PCPOP] Intel Core i7-3770K (Ivy Bridge) Review - Page 10

post #91 of 160
Another thing they need to do, three to four graphics cards in SLI/CF on an Ivy Bridge Gen3 board! It would be quite interesting to say the least!

Touchy meaning when you clock SB-E about 1.4v, it seems that degradation occurs more noticably. I can't comfortably recommend 1.45v 24/7 for a 3930k anymore.

1.3v will probably be the max you want go with air/water with a 22nm chip like IVY imo.

No. Are you going to bottleneck if you decide to run a multi-GPU setup in games that use 4 cores or less? Yes.

No. A 980x at 100% load >>>> 2500k at 100% load, therefore the 980x is better. And even under lightly threaded scenarios (which is a retarded way to compare anything other than IPC, by the way) a 2500k doesn't destroy the 980x. Slightly faster =/= destroy.


Kids on OCN these days need to stop thinking everybody just uses their PC for games. rolleyes.gif

not only will Z77 boards be more tuned for Ivy, but the issue here is that they test with turbo on, results are inconsistent. THis isn't a clock for clock comparison, and who knows if Z68 was turbo properly with Ivy.

Also 22nm tri-gate transistor=possibly lower operating voltage, doesn't mean it can't handle high voltages. Voltages wont be the issue with Ivy.

Oh boy am definitely getting one been holding off for a i7 upgrade
post #96 of 160
Will love upgrading to 3770k@>5GHz on air, Z79, GTX 670 this summer. But, what still makes me mad and after reading through almost every post on here and no one saying anything about is why the need for on chip graphics. I would much rather have 2 more cores/4 more threads. I really can't wait to see some of these chips when they get into the 16 Thread spectrum and low ICPs, with Haswell. 8 Cores@6 GHz on air, at less than $400 anyone?

The below is just one benchmark showing results.

Hmph... for that matter..da wittle amd chip scores higher than 2600k

Can't wait to see more benchmarks.

+1

I can't really OC my 930 due to high ambient through much of the year or it gets unstable. This with lower temps, lower watts, PCI 3(TBD on how much of an improvement), and Sata3 for my M4 will be substantial.

Also adding WC which would help either setup, but not really worth the cost to WC an old build.

Not a huge difference but pretty good. Isn't the TDP 77W or something?

Hope Intel can harness the full power of 3D transistors in Haswell, unless this is the best which would be really disappointing.

Sounds good for livestreaming SC2 at 1080p, but I'd rather have a couple extra real cores instead of hyperthreading, or a stream encoding program with quick sync support.
