i7-3930k vs i7-4770k any bechmarks yet? - Page 3

post #21 of 30
You can't compare cars with pc hardware. There are 2 distinct industries that evolve at different pace.
And why shouldn't people expect more and better from Intel. If costumers don't expect more from the manufactures how are the going buy better thing? It's not just about corporate competition you know.

I have PC's with both of these chips here; (the 4770k and 3930k) If anyone wants a benchmark in specific I'd be happy to run it!

Just post what side-by-side you want

Intel makes steady upgrades with every new architecture, just like AMD. Haswell has a lot of improvements, new logic, new instructions, etc. A raw performance boost compared to the CPUs that were released less than a year ago isn't everything.

You can't use just any ole benchmark as hardware performs differently depending on the settings and config.

Say your setting is a low resolution like 1280x720. This setting might give a 4770K or 7970GHZ a lower score than say a i5 or 660Ti. But at a higher resolution of 2560x1600 it shows a completely different results. Lesson in this: Some hardware excels at certain resolutions.

Also pay attention to multi-GPU setups. A Bulldozer might be even with a i7 3770k with 1 GPU at a low resolution like 1080P, but when you throw in 2-3 GPUs and bench it @ 1080P, the bulldozer is going to bottleneck you fast and perform significantly worse than a i7 3770k.. Lesson in this: Multi-GPUs can bog down a CPU.

CPU features are also worth looking into as well. For example: My Sandy/P67 mobo might seem bad, but the only advantage Ivy/Z77 offers is Raid 0 trim, 3000mhz ram and PCIe 3.0 none of them are worth the upgrade. Lesson in this: Newer doesn't mean worth the upgrade.


Those are just examples. The moral of the story is:


Choose hardware based on what your going to be gaming at. If your going to game at 5760x1080 with SLI then forget the rest of the benches, they don't matter. Only pay attention to CPU benchmarks at 5760x1080 with SLI.

Example:I only care about 1440P benchmarks with Dual GPUs. Which is why I am sticking with my i7 2600K. Haswell and Ivy were hardly worth upgrading for.

Ooh would love a few benchmarks problem is the hardware specs would be a little different e.g gpu, memory and the likes. But I'm interested in all of the benchmarks lol. If there's any benchmarks you have like Sisandra , Superpi, passmark and cinebench on your pc,s that would be awesome. I've always wanted a test where both chips are on the exact same clocks 4770k on 4ghz and 3930k on 4ghz for example. I might be asking for a little much though as it would be time consuming if its not too much trouble would be awesome to see.

I can match RAM and GPUs and HDDs

the only difference will be Motherboard and processor

Oh very cool. I edited my post but if you can be bothered would be an awesome little experiment. Thank you

sure; i'll knock it out this evening while i'm puttering around smile.gif

Fantastic there are just so many benchmarks around that compare a 3770k or 4770k at 4.6 ghz vs say a 3930k at 4.1 ghz and in conclusion they say the 3930k was just slightly behind the newer 3770k cpu in benchmarks lol of course it's behind one is clocked at 4.6ghz and the other lower. I still don't think I have ever seen a benchmark done with clock for clock comparison. Can't wait for the results thank you Josh

Well.. theoretically, you could. There is one thing and it is called creationism.
I really do not mean to sound rude or offensive. The point is, many things are possible.
It would be no problem to have bigger caches, higher clocks, latger SSDs and stuff that
could make the switch to new technology coming along with 50% more performance.

There are already existing chips that are planned to be released released in 2 - 4 years.
Of course every new tech need testing and i am not talking about that it will rain superchips
from heaven.

Another thing is that, theoretically it would be no problem to make a standard for coolers.
This means that like every board has an (m)ATX format, the holes could be placed always
on the same place.

This would reduce pollution
> Existing cooling systems could be used over and over
again until they really die.

> No wasted energy, raw materials and money on a product politic that will become obsolete
in this century, if we want to save what is left of this planet.

Look how many complete computers are sold here
http://www.gartner.com/newsroom/id/1981717

"Worldwide PC shipments totaled 89 million units in the first quarter of 2012" only in one quarter!
Now imagine at least half of the cooling systems could be re-used.
How much energy and materials would this be?

Again, this is no warpost personal against you.. its just some kind of "political" exchange.

The counter argument could be that we are recycling stuff and this make things good again, but no.
Even recycling takes a large amount of energy and not 100% can be recycled. A part is just burned
in the atmosphere.

Now me for my part, is accepting to stayy on the 2500K for some generations because the technological
advance is eye-washing in order to maximise profit.

This is only my opinion and you are free to have yours.. sry i must go rapair a PC of on old lady now, otherways this
post woukd be way longer with more links.. i´d like to edit it and proove my arguments with more information.

later...
