You're completely right because it's better to have N slow cores than N fast cores.... rolleyes.gif

Given the fact that Piledriver CPUs came close to Ivy Bridge CPUs in Crysis 3 (and other heavily threaded games), I wouldn't be surprised if Steamroller closes the gap even more.

Though Intel would be somewhat apathetic towards the desktop market compared to pre-IB times, because ARM/Qualcomm is their main concern.

It's the first time in the last decade that I don't plan on upgrading my cpu/mobo/ram combo after having my PC for two years.

Sandy offers all the performance I need with no issues pushing my 680 to its limits and I bet it's not going to have any issues doing the same to a 780.

I am not going to complain the money saved will serve me well.

You aren't supposed to give from ivy to haswell just like you shouldn't go from sandy to ivy. Also who knows what board they used.

From what I've seen of current games that use more than 4 Cores, it still wont make a huge difference. AMD will still need to improve on their single core performance to be competitive Apples to Apples.

i.e. - 25% CPU usage over 8 Cores vs 50% CPU usage over 4 Cores - Intel still has stronger per core performance so as long as it has CPU headroom it will be better.

haswel is meh but is still bigger jump then crappy ivybridge(terrible ihs, lower clocks then sandy,high temps and still unusable igpu compared to sandy....haswell igp at least looks capable).

sandybridge was last great intel cpu line

Is that a joke? Unusable igpu compared to Sandy?

Pretty much.

Haswell will be good if you don't use a dedicated graphics card like 0.1% of OCN members. For the other 99.9% of OCN people, Haswell will most likely be just an over priced (compared to a sub $200 3770K and $110 Z77 motherboard.

I'm glad I decided to just skip Haswell all together.
