Hashwell or 3930

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 

Hey folks. I am selling my 3570k to a friend.

 

Is it wise to wait for the 3570k equivalent of the Hashwell or grab a 3930k

 

Performance is my only concern. Forget about power consumption and price.

 

Since I will be using 2 GPUs in the future, who knows perhaps 3, I am leaning towards 3930k.

 

Thanks.

Either grab a 3930k and or wait for Ivy-E/Haswell to release(they both will around the same time) and pick what's best suited for you.

Ivy E or Hashwell wont be using socket 2011 right?

 

I have a socket 1155 and its pretty much a dead socket so I will be selling that as well.

"pritty much" is relative to if haswell will have TIM or solder. many preffered sandy to ivy over this, you will still see people with 1155's even in haswell's era.

You can easily run 2 GPU's on PCIe 3.0 x8 (= PCIe 2.0 x16) without maxing the bandwidth.

I say Haswell because newer platform, cheaper than SB-E plus upgradeable to Broadwell.

Hmmmm. I heard that no more socket 1155 compatibl CPUs would come out from Intel, but I might read it wrong.

upgradable to Broadwell is a good factor actually.

 

Hmmmm.

 

Decisions, decisions...

1155 stops at ivy, but that doesn't mean it no longer is relevant.

my opinion is to stop waiting for new platforms, just pull the trigger at the best your money can buy when the time is ready. every year a new one comes out. pointless to "wait for "

The 4770K is projected to be 30% faster then a 3930K in single threaded so it will perform better in most games

Sb-E and Ivy-E are the same socket (socket 2011) so if you get a 3930k now, you can change the cpu later this year when Ivy-E come out. Haswell will be a new socket (1150).
