[X-Bit Labs] Retail Versions of Intel Core i “Haswell” Are “Hotter and Slower” Than Expected – Report. - Page 6

post #51 of 232
I'm actually kinda glad that Haswell has flopped. I mean its bad and all, but that means my 4.9 jigahertz 2500k can last a little longer, and I won't need to upgrade and waste money again. tongue.gif

Funny how history repeats itself -

When sandy came out it was the talk of the internet that if you had a i7920 it would only be a side step of an upgrade in other words not really worth it .

Now we have sandy owners saying that they are glad they kept theirs because of the performance gain in the following 2 generations have been hardly worth it either biggrin.gif

So where does that leave me then with my i7920 lachen.gif

To be honest, I think you're on a limbo. If you don't mind the power consumption and heat, an i7 920 at 4.2 Ghz can still hold its own. I would recommend you wait until new consoles are released to see what kind of performance new generation games will need and then make a decision. IB-e will be released at around that time too, so you get more choices, not to mention AMD will have released Kaveri, and you'll also know what Steamroller will be capable of.

yea man seriously, when I joined this computer thing, it was right at the moment sandy came out and I thought it was the best thing ever. At that time, I saw a lot of people holding the i7 920, and now 2 years down the road I still see people holding the i7 920 in their rigs. That thing just won't die will it?

Too be honest the i7920 is a great chip but its downfall is the power consumption so when I made the the other comment before it was a bit of fun biggrin.gif

Still rocking my Core i5 750 and still don't see a good reason to upgrade. I only play games, watch movies, and suf the net and my i5 is still fast to me so I will see what happens in the future or until my i5 is dead

I was going to upgrade to haswell if it was going to be tock but it was as if time stood still redface.gif

I don't use my computer professionally and the only gains I would get is a few more fps in games and a smaller electric bill, then again my computer is not on 24/7

And yes usb3 would be nice but not essential. I think we live in world where patience is not excepted biggrin.gif

They're doing that to make their CPUs worse artificially until there's some real competition going on so that will be one more reason to upgrade later for consumers. I bet that mobile chips don't have those crap temps.

Exactly, honestly, most ppl just upgrade for the sake of it, only the rare few ever have a "need" for it.

Paying hundreds of dollars just to shave 1 or 2 seconds off task completion cycles. Less even when just performing the main daily tasks we all do.

Peace.

I went for the 4770k/z87 only for the fact that it will provide me with sata3,usb3,pci-e3- mostly for the sata3 so my new SSD can run at full speed without getting bottlenecked by sata2 on my X58.
I'm not a serious overclocker but I do like to have it OCed to a level of not extreme level, but something that will be stable/fast and last me for long time. My i7 920 runs at 3.5 ghz, so the 4770k will run at that speed at stock, with less power usage, and if I can pull a easy 4.2 ghz out of it, I will be happy.
