I agree. I was going to wait for Haswell, but given the preliminary numbers, it isn't going to be all that much of an improvement for people that have a dedicated GPU right out of the gate, maybe 10-15% faster. But the down side will be you will need a new chip, motherboard (new socket) and a new cooler, all of which will be more expensive than an Ivy or Sandy set up ... since the Haswell stuff will command a premium price just because it's "new".

That's why I went ahead and pulled the trigger on my newest 3770K build, which will mainly be used for gaming.

Lol, everyone is commenting on "no need to turn off ht" Apparently you never run into problems, but search "HT and BF3" on net and you'll see some people benefit from turning HT off. Some other games and gfx benchmarks too. I always read about bad stories, even thou i don't run into them or i don't have HT, but i read about them biggrin.gif

I was one of the first people to complain about Battlefield 3's stuttering issues with Hyperthreading enabled, but that was back when the game was released. As of today, Hyperthreading works perfectly in Battlefield 3 and does provide a bit of a performance increase. thumb.gif

was gonna say..  game patch or driver update needed.. smile.gif

 

*Adding 4 more threads has never done anything negative to my computing experience.. unless your trying for higher clocks or have inadequate cooling to deal with the load.

post #55 of 93
tell ya what ill upload a pic here in a minute of BF3 using all of my 4 cores/8threads in bf3.

but for now heres a vid of me playing b3f with my 2600k with HT enabled.

CLICK ME

Thread Starter 
Sounds good from the comments, glad to hear I will NOT have to Turn OFF HT to play BF3 because I play that often.
Glad I went with the 3770k put a mild OC on her and let her fly I say smile.gif

i dunno im just making the point that having the extra overhead of 8 vs 4 cores makes a difference! smile.gif

Well, looks like he does.

I'm not sure why it makes a difference, I play BF3 on my i7's and don't have an issue. I really haven't bothered looking into the whole BF3 and HT thing because, frankly, I don't have a problem. Maybe it's BIOS related or such.

Anyway, you and I are on the same page, more cores doesn't hurt, and even if you do have an issue with BF3 and HT, you can always turn it off until they either fix the game or driver (not sure with the others who are having a problem, but you and I both run GTX 580's) and then he could turn it back on. If the OP went with a 3570K, he doesn't have that option, he is "stuck" with 4 threads forever.

Not to mention the OP is to compare 2x CPU's that feature HT.. not sure why we are worried about CPU's that dont, or turning it off..doesnt sound like that was ever the OP's intention.
