and your still calling a FX-8350 more then 4 cores, we all know better....? tongue.gif
and I'll take my 2500K or my 3570K over AMD offerings especially in gaming as I do not do any 'heavy multi-threaded' task
that by looking at the synthetic benchmark makes it looks like AMD wins that too..

1) Before this, I had an old Phenom 2 965. And before that I had a Q6600 that didn't like being overclocked past 3 Ghz. This runs circles around both of them. I wanted something cheap that could overclock and game pretty good when I got my UD7, and Bulldozer was made of fail. This was in July-Aug before Piledriver was out. The only reason I went with this platform is that I needed something with better performance and overclocking (unlike fat 65nm Q6600) than what I already had, and a board with good features and expansion room.

eg. interim placeholder board that lets me put a lot of stuff on, and chip that does pretty well compared to most of the older junk out there, and most Intel stuff before Sandy Bridge and onward.

2) Well, it's not quite 8 normal cores and it's sure not 4 cores. More like an 8-core than right in the middle at 6-core equivalent though.
http://cpuboss.com/cpus/AMD-Phenom-II-X6-Black-1100T-vs-AMD-FX-8350

3) And why bring up 3570K versus AMD anyways? I was just talking about Intel chips before.

I'm just not very impressed with Haswell as it's not too much more powerful than Ivy Bridge, and It sure wouldn't steal the top spot for most powerful consumer chip on the planet when a 6-core or even 8-core extreme series Ivy Bridge E processor is finally released. I had no desire to go for a 4-core Sandy Bridge at the time, both because I didn't have other decent parts to go with it and because it's a 4-core. Still needed to get a lot more stuff for the rig when Sandy Bridge E launched. And Ivy Bridge and Haswell? Again, both 4-cores. A monstrous 6-core chip lasts longer as far as usefulness goes, just ask anyone with an i7 980X or 990X. You can push off upgrading for another year or two that way. Besides, the next generation of 6-cores after this might be with DDR4. And DDR3 was super-expensive when first introduced, so I want to skip going through paying through the nose when the DDR4 train pulls into town.

The only other piece for my core rig left to get (replacement keyboard, mouse, display, new GPU, and eventual large storage aside) is the RAM kit (32 GB TridentX 2400 mhz). So now I can start saving for that 6-core IBE.

having fun...

truth is I can't see myself going Haswell, too soon and chances are 50-50 you can hit 4.6GHz or not.
I said this before, right now today I'd go with a delidded 3770K FTW..
post #214 of 358
Not really worth it. I already got a 3770k so yeah.
post #215 of 358
I have a first gen i7 930. IDK if it is worth it for me to get the haswell... I'm leaning towards no

Same here even with an i5 750.

I've been thinking of picking up a clearance Z77 board and cheap 2500k/3570k to play with....but waiting 3+ years to get a 2 year old chip kinda kills me just the same.
Might just wait it out another year, since honestly Nehalem chips with a nice OC aren't slacking at all for gaming.

My 4770K will do 4.7GHz all day at 1.325V. However, for 4.8GHz it needs 1.45V. Seems like Haswell has very similar walls to Ivy.

I think I can barely get a stable 4.5 with 1.325V. I hit 96C while running prime95 and stopped it right there. I didn't want to see higher temps.

Running a very comfortable 4.2ghz with 1.235V with 81C max temp. Stilling running prime95 and maybe I can bring a couple millivolts down later then play with the bclk...

Waiting for my CLU paste to arrive then delid.

Kinda sad I got a below avg chip.
