I7 950 (ht off) vs. i5 3570k clock for clock comparison

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I've been getting this itch on buying an IB system these past few days even though I'm broke atm. I'm already aware of the features of this system like sata3, pci-e 3.0 etc. but what I'm really curious about is clock for clock performance.

how much jump would I get from going to a 3570k? My cpu struggles on getting 120fps on games like starcraft 2 and shogun 2 total war but I've been "ignoring" it because these are only the two games that I do feel I'm being bottlenecked(other games work fine tho) being OCD isn't helping so I don't think I can ignore it for much longer

and btw what is the average OC of a 3570k using a noctua NH-d14? could I expect something close to 5ghz like 4.7-4.8ghz overclocks? I was hoping the lack of HT counters the cooling problem of IB's

Well sandybridge was 10-15% faster and Ivybridge another 10% on Sandy, so around 20-25% faster clock for clock

In my own opinion, i think you should wait till Haswell, seeing as you have a really good chip @ 4400mhz.

my math fails me since I was 4 (hence I became a nurse lol) so bear with me please

so if IB is 25% faster than my older gen cpu and I was able to clock it at let's say I was able to OC it at 4.6ghz then that would be like my current cpu being clocked at 5.5ghz+ correct?

Yeah and also Sandybridge clocks higher and is faster clock for clock.

A 2600K is faster than a 980x if i'm not mistaken (the hexacore)

I have an i7 965EE and personally, I'm waiting for Haswell. I can OC my 965 nicely now to 4.2GHz and while the Gen3's are much faster, I just don't see throwing away a perfectly good CPU, motherboard, RAM, and water block for maybe 12 months worth of wait.

Here's a clock for clock comparison with I7 3770K:

http://alienbabeltech.com/main/?p=29402&all=1

There's 0 difference in gaming, about 20% in other tasks. The i5 is slower so you'd get about 10% gain clock for clock, gaming performance might even be worse (because of lower cache) but I doubt it.

I wouldn't get my hopes up for Haswell. Intel said it's gonna be 10% faster than Ivy so again not far ahead of LGA 1366. I'm sticking with this socket until I see a decent 6-core at reasonable prices. Even then I might consider upgrading to I7-980 instead.

native sata3, the cpu will be slightly faster and clock higher with more power efficiency and less heat. Depending on which IB board you get, with your 690 I'm betting it won't be a huge difference other than the few facts I stated in the beginning. You would definitely have to get a cpu with HT to see any appreciable difference in gaming.

Thanks for that website link. I was looking for it for weeks. tongue.gif

I'm sticking to my x58 for as long as I can.

Thanks for the link. Nice to know the investment I made is still hanging with new tech even after a couple of years. Was getting the itch to upgrade as well but I will save some cash and just upgrade my video card. thumb.gif
