Ivy bridge around the corner, Just get sandy instead?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Ok i have all the parts for my PC except CPU, With the recent news of ivy bridge being rather bad im wondering if i should go with sandy.

With my PC being small and limited cooling tbh Im not planning on overclocking currently, but i would like at least a small overclock in the future (4Ghz or so)

Also if i get say the i7 2700k or the i5 2550k will i still be able to use the lucid virtu chip on the z77 board?

I understand ivy is not fully released yet but really theres minor advantages that just seem to get smaller with new information.

If OCing isn't important to you, then IB is your answer. Its not leaps and bounds better than SB, but it is better at stock. OCing is the thing that is in question. Based on the info we have so far, 4.0 on IB should be reasonable without being able to fry an egg on it. Honestly, I think its too early to say what we are going to get from IB. Wait for the official launch and we will all know more. Its less than 2 weeks away.

You can't use the latest features of Z77 with SandyBridge, so say goodbye to PCI3 and stuff.

I don't really know if Ivy is indeed just around the corner, but some (not all) reviewers have stated that Ivy is a bad overclocker...

BUT, at stock rated speeds it is supposed to be awesome, great. 4GHz is not a big overclock so that should be fine for Ivy imo.

Bear in mind we're sitll speculating here because Ivy hasn't really been released to the public yet. Maybe Intel will do another revision but that will take time.

If you really want to use your computer now try finding an i32100 or something on eBay or here at the FS threads so you can at least use it for now and not blow a hole in your pocket into that savings you have for Ivy.

Good luck


PS. You're saying you only want 4GHz now, but just wait wink.gif once you start going up you'll just want to go even higher over time.

To answer the question of the lucid virtue"If you get the 2700k yes, If you get the 2550k no as it has no video on the processor"

And im personally waiting on ivy as i already bought the z-77 board!





Go INTEL!!!!!!!!
personally ive never been let down by intel like i have with amd.
