No, Intel is not just repackaging the same thing and selling it for a higher price.

2nd generation i3/5/7 CPUs were much much better than the 1st generation. Just because Sandy and Ivy perform closely doesn't mean Intel has that habit you said they have. You're judging the company's strategy based on just the latest two generations. Where were you before Ivy Bridge?

This is a bit of a bump, but it's not too bad.

At this point, I'm having some trouble deciding between Ivy Bridge and Haswell. I think I'll wait for some benchmarks to show up, and if Haswell isn't all it's cracked up to be, I'll pick up a 3570k for cheap once it's officially part of the "previous generation".

I'm thinking Haswell will be all it's cracked up to be.

Sorry to disappoint you, the product may go on sale sometime but the overall price isn't going to drop. You might as well pick it up now and enjoy performance instead of waiting 3 month.

Ivy bridge is pretty worth it coming from a 2500k that caps out at 4.4ghz. Delidding helps but you really gotta be careful or else you'll destroy it. Already replaced one but I see it has a way higher oc potential...just gotta find out the right voltage settings.

It is only a good deal if you can get it from microcenter. I pretty much got an ivy bridge because I got a z77 board... may as well use the board and at the same time build up my credit tongue.gif

I'm not going to speculate on how good or bad Haswell will be until it's released but if it's a high enough jump up from my i7-2600K then I might consider it, if not then I'll stick with what I have. thumb.gif
