Getting I7 2600k soon wondering how it is going to stack up in general

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Hi, as the title states I am getting the I7 2600k soon and I am wondering what kind of performance I can expect. I haven't had an intel processor in years and got a great deal from a member here in the marketplace. I am really jus wondering about performance while gaming, surfing, benching etc. I've seen thousands of graphs detailing the numbers etc. but I am wondering about real world day to day things etc. ANy insight would be helpful and much appreciated! thanks in advance thumb.gif

Unless you plan on putting 2 or 3 Titan's in, you really won't miss the PCIe 3.0 that only comes with 3rd and 4th generation i7's. If you are an overclocker, with a good $30 aftermarket heatsink and fan, you should be able to push it to 4.4GHz with zero trouble. With a basic water cooling system, 4.6 to 4.7GHz isn't a problem. With a little work, 4.9 or 5.0 GHz if you are lucky.

In short, an i7-2600K is a very capable chip.

I don't know how much you getting the 2600k for but i know is not less then $100, Haswell will be launching very very soon, i would save every week and get a brand new CPU and for only $100 more.

Wait 6-8 weeks for the new haswell cpu's with the new socket 1150 motherboards to arrive thumb.gif

The 2600K is still a very capable cpu that would last for years to come but it's soon to be two generations old

But since Haswell will also take a new motherboard, and like the CPU itself, it will be much more expensive than the LGA1155 motherboards. So the net cost of waiting for Haswell, will be more like $200 or more (if he already has an LGA1155 board).

Also, the first generation Haswells have a flaw in them with the USB3.0 and S3 sleep mode. No such issue with 2nd or 3rd generation i7's.

According to the supposed document, when a Haswell-based system wakes from an S3 sleep mode, users will experience issues if a device is plugged into one of the USB 3.0 ports. These "issues" include blank pages displayed in Acrobat Reader PDFs, video that stops rather than resumes, and more. A quick fix is to restart the troubled application without having to reboot the entire system.

That said, the USB 3.0 problems are only described as a "nuisance" to consumers, and won't result in major data loss or the start of Armageddon. Intel even supposedly states that it won't have any impact on the release of Haswell-based CPUs, and will likely be resolved in future processor stepping. The letter also requests that manufacturers acknowledge the issues before Intel will supply the Haswell processors.

This has already been debunked

Well, good to know that Intel has acknowledged the problem and has fixed the issue with the C2 stepped CPU's.

But that really isn't "debunked". The reality is there WAS an issue with the Haswell's and USB3.0 and it looks like they have fixed it. It's just another reason why the Haswell has been delayed and delayed ... and now will be delayed until July if you are lucky, and more like August, unless you want a Haswell with a bugged out USB3.0 support.

The stepping from C1 to C2 should address the problem of USB 3.0 devices not being recognized after waking from S3 sleep and be the stepping version for the first mass production boards. Assuming that everything else is okay, we should be one step closer to the launch of Intel Haswell processors along with the new boards!

The bad news is that the very first samples aren't supposed to arrive until July 1st, 2013! It has been widely rumored that the Intel 4th Generation Core i 'Haswell' processors were already delayed and were to debut at Computex 2013, which takes place the first week of June. It looks like Intel can still launch Haswell at Computex, but the C2 stepping chipsets don't look like they'll make the festivities. With first availability in July 2013, it could mean a July/August launch for Haswell. Unless, of course, they launch with C1 steppings...

I'm getting the 2600k. P67A-UD3 mobo, 8GB ram, another 4 GB set of ram and dvd burner for $330.00 Averaged out, I am getting for bout 100 or less. Which seems to be a great deal to me. I would spend at least that much for a low end 1st gen Haswell easily and still have to pick up the mobo, ram and various accesories

I would expect it to work. I would think it's going to be slightly better than your FX 8350, but it's going to be very close.

The problem was with a cheap usb flash drive controller not intel or haswell, It's not really fair for intel to fix an issue so it's compatible with all clients controllers

UPDATE 12PM CT: Numerous people have called and e-mailed Legit Reviews about this story. It appears that the USB 3.0 issue is isolated to a USB controller issue on the client side. Intel also sent us an e-mail today letting us know that there is no delay with the Haswell platform launch. It looks like the C1 chipsets will be launched as planned in June 2013 and then the board makers will transition to the C2 chipsets sometime after July 2013.
