@qwwwizx - I see why you would have thought that.
Yeah I was excited to post my incoming system. I finished the hardware build last night. Software tonight. I should have a new bench with the sand card sane clocks to do a comparison. Ill need to learn a little about Ivy OC'ing first though. Going to do it at 4.0 Ghz like my i7 950 4.0 Ghz and compare clocks. I'm not going to try for anything over 4.50 Ghz. I hear Ivy at 4.5 Ghz is like Sandy at 5.0 Ghz. I'd be more than happy.
"'I hear Ivy at 4.5 Ghz is like Sandy at 5.0 Ghz.'"
I keep hearing variations of this statement. What, exactly, does it mean?
Either a benchmark reads one value or another, so how could 4.5GHz. possibly equal 5GHz.?
They're both absolute values, completely unlike each other. One has a value of .5GHz. less than the other.
(There is a spoon! Always has been.)
