3570k now or wait for price drop on 3770k? - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Then go with the i7!
post #12 of 16
Some newer games IE Crysis3 can actually get a bump in performance from hyperthreading. The price difference is much larger to a student though than it is to someone working full time so I can't say if it's worth it or not. I went from a 3570K to a 3770K because it cost me almost nothing. I can say with my Titan SLI I went from 56fps+ to being locked at 60 during the same areas of Crysis. In the final test of 3dmark11 where it uses CPU+GPU, adding a second Titan actually lowered my score with my 3570K from max 35fps down to 33fps. With the 3770K it went up to 39fps. Maybe it just manages the SLI better? The i7 is also recommended for using high MHZ ram though some including my i5 can do it just fine.

So it's really up to you but to me it was worth the minor price difference. GL with your build.

EDIT: Thats exactly what I did Bruennis haha. Also seeing that you want to do more than just gaming makes it a no brainer.

It's worth it, W7 is designed for HT, games aren't effected in fact, some newer ones use threads however they can get them.
i7's rule the game charts.
As far as which one overclocks better, not sure.
i plan on using windows 8 pro. does it still use HT

If you are buying the 3770K over the 3570K and hoping to see a gain read this

http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Intel/Core_i5_3570K_and_i7_3770K_Comparison/8.html

~1% performance difference in Metro and the was the biggest gain out of the games tested

You should probably just wait for the Haswell i5 considering it is weeks away from release
