Upgrade from X58 680 to Z77 X79? - Page 3

post #21 of 25
Thread Starter 
Can´t wait to get a new mobo, though, would like to see some performance increase with my SSD. Currently it´s not really delivering, but then again I´m not sure SATAIII would make that big of a difference?

For what it's worth, I couldn't really see a difference in SSD performance when going from X58 to X79 (Intel SATA II to Intel SATA III). Hell, I think my boot time increased, though that's because of the motherboard itself (apparently ASUS X79 boards boot relatively slowly, at least some do).

You might see a slight differnce, but don't expect anything like going from HDD to SSD. 4k reads/writes can barely saturate a SATA II channel, if they do. The only tangible increase is on sequential reads/writes, which you would only see if you move huge chunks of data in and out the SSD.

Heck, an SSD in a SATA I port is still like comparing a bicycle to a Lamborghini. Here's my Mushkin Chronos 120 GB on my 2006 laptop.

Wait for Haswell. Even going from Core i7 920 to 2600K was a good upgrade because you got extra 600-1000MHz OC, 15% better IPC,Ran Cooler and used half the power.

It is not exactly fair to compare these chips at stock. Also, the Core i7 2600 does not run cooler, the Nehalem actually has a wider die than Sandy Bridge, therefore, theoretically dispatches heat more efficiently. The fact that Nehalem uses much more W does not mean it is hotter as a rule of thumb. Sure, it is a very notable upgrade, you are talking about a stock 750 MHz perforamce increase + 7 % performance increase due architecture..

The only notable exceptions that i know are the Rampage IIII Black and the G1 Sniper, which had a Marvell 9182 controller, instead of the hideus Marvell 9128 controller which must be avoided at all costs. Still, performance is just on par with the Intel controller, so save yourself some POST time by disabling the Marvell controller on the BIOS.

Thank you for informing about the 9128. I was about to buy the X58 Sabbertooth, replacing my EX58-UD4 just for the sake of sata3, but after this i've changed my mind. Also the fact that there is no clear cmos in the back drove me away from it...
