[diy.pconline.com.cn] Intel Core i5 4670k first test - Page 13

post #121 of 202
If you can choose between the 3770K vs 4670K but the 4770K is out of budget, why would you choose the 4670K 4C4T over 3770K 4C8T? 3770K seems like the better choice of the two to me.

Because I'm on a budget and I'm also upgrading some other stuff (RAM, SSD, HDD). Since the 3770k will still be more expensive than the 4670k, it means I'll have to pull back a bit on the other upgrades.

nothing wrong with the 3570K.....
just saying.

but Haswell is here so I understand.
I bet Ivy Bridge prices to drop even more.

Yeah, that's another option I might go with. There's a computer expo being held here where I live 2 weeks after Computex, so if I can find a really sweet deal with the 3570k (expecting some price dumps to start clearing Ivy stock) I might just go with that.

Hmm, thinking about it again, Z87 will undoubtedly be more expensive than Z77 equivalents. So maybe 3770K + Z77 mobo price might not be so different than 4670K + Z87.

I like where this is going, really think about all options because the difference between IB and Haswell is pricing.. wink.gif
performance more or less is equal with Haswell holding a *cough* of a lead.

That never happened with Intel. Only AMD high performance CPU could force Intel to change prices of high end chips.

Why? Z77 is performance MB, thus it's price is much higher, by 20-50 $, than B7x boards, but Z87 is in the same category. Theirs introductory prices would be the same, then it will rise if there would be demand for Haswell, then in 3 months it will go down to around Z77 boards prices, or lower. Remember there would be smaller VRM on board, thus it would have cheaper manufacturing costs (which of course depends on Intel.)

I'm surprised how many people expected Haswell to be a much larger upgrade than Ivy. IB came out just last year, and we haven't been getting yearly upgrades consistently for a while. Also people complaining about Intel focusing on power consumption bewilders me. Less power consumption=less heat ~= better overclocks. I'm actually pretty content with general performance levels for now, and will happily accept new toys to play with every year.

umm yes they will some and please leave AMD out of this discussion.. wink.gif

here in US where I am (also close to Microcenter) prices are dropping even if slightly.
newegg prices dropped a few dollars too but do not forget about Amazon and eBay.

It's just a false illusion for you to think that they have enthusiast grade processors on their mainstream platform.

Your average joe does not buy K-edition CPUs, except for the very uninformed. I'd consider the high end i5s and up to be enthusiast grade because most people do not need the massive computing power.

You do not need a 3 GHz quadcore for Facebook, Youtube, and MS Office. A Pentium or low end i3 is sufficient for such tasks.

For those hexa-core i7s? Unless if you're using it for a job, they're just a "I am rich" chip. For workstation tasks that demand reliability, you're better off using server chips, as the sever motherboards and components are usually less likely to cause an expensive system crash than the typical consumer grade stuff.
