anyone tried i3 3220 or 3240 yet?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi,

The title pretty much says it all. Did anyone try them yet? I have a i3-2120 cpu and I been thinking about getting one of these cpu's if it will perform any better. I don't care much about the onboard gpu just only the cpu performance

They where just released at midnight today so I don't believe anyone has tried them unless someone rushed to a Microcenter that happens to be open 24/7. According to Anandtech Bench the Sandy Bridge i3's outperformed the Phenom II X4 965 BE in most tasks and in gaming. The Phenom II X4 was slightly superior with multi-threaded applications because it has 4 physical cores/threads vs 2 physical cores/4 threads. I would assume these Ivy Bridge i3's would perform even better and may be even better than the Phenom II X4 965 BE on all fronts. I think the Ivy Bridge i3's are a good deal. These Ivy Bridge Core i3's and Pentiums do not allow PCI-E 3.0 on Ivy Bridge chipsets because they do not have a PCI-E 3.0 controller built in, but right now that's not a big deal seeing as no current cards can benefit from PCI-E 3.0.

Any upgrade from SB to IB is not worth the money. You might as well upgrade to i5 for the double amount of core and the possibility to overclock (if you go with a K version).

Most likely it WILL perform SLIGHTLY better. But it's going to be a small side grade which is probably not worth the money. If you're going to spend more money, might as well get an i5 real quad core or something.

so far the only review I found is this
http://www.iopanel.net/iintel-core-i3-3225-ivy-bridge-with-hd-4000-graphics-review/

but it doesn't compare the ivy I3 with any sandy bridge i3...
