para nada, solo te estan forzando a comprar sus nuevos productos tan simple como eso, AMD rebajo los precios de la HD7990 por el simple hecho
que es una tarjeta limited edition, no fue para ventas masivas, y por tal razon para que dejarla en las tiendas? mejor las vendemos... AMD siempre vende
sus productos a un precio razonable y luegos los pone mas baratos, es logica de mercadeo, que intel y nvidia no suelen seguir para que clientes com tu, compren mas de lo
mismo.

Si AMD trata lo que sea contal de vender.

A mi no me importa pagar un poco mas, por algo que valga la pena.

Ye, but why would you ever buy 4770k over 3930k if you use 3 WAY SLI?

4770k with 2400 memory GL HF

i go my 3930k at 5Ghz 2500 memory and 3x Titan.

Next 4930k i get PCI 3.0 Native, you get better memory controller so i can get my 2666 memory +.

Smaller CHIP.

i would never buy haswell in my life ever.
i got my 3570k on miniITX.

only reason for haswell is golden chip and go 5Ghz.
i used the 4770k at dreamhack, in the stand where you could see the asus board with 4770k

That did 5Ghz like a charm then you go to consumer CPU ohh wait 4.6 max.

Oh hello fanboy!

Question can u provided GPU usage to back up this claim? some pictures? or a 2minute video?

Crysis 3, farcry3, BF3 multi especially BF3 please?

When a company slash prices soon after a product is release, it's a slap in the face of their fans and early adopters. If they keep doing this, every release is going to bomb as people will just wait for the price drop to buy.
They wouldn't need to slash prices if the product was properly priced in the first place.
I'm talking in general here, ANY company that does that will have issues with their releases.
Btw, if it's a 30~50 USD price cut as an answer to a competitor's new product, that's fine. It's the huge price cuts happening while the competition haven't release anything new that are the problem.

Tech report review of 4960X was pretty funny, basically written as though it was a waste of their time to even do...just like intel is wasting everyones time with this outdated on arrival waste of money cpu.

http://techreport.com/review/25293/intel-core-i7-4960x-processor-reviewed

8 core haswell E should have been released, not this outdated cpu.

thanks! i would really love to see some GPU usage maybe some videogameplay? i would like to know everything possible before deciding 4770k or 4930k and cant that be done with a 4770k as well?
if u have a youtube channel, i just want u to record a videogameplay BF3 multiplayer maybe Norshal canals? 64 TDM? or Caspian Border 64 players? and just to see how strong that CPU while feeding those card would you make a video on CloseQuarters? as well?

i know is too much to ask, but no one have made a video like that showing FPS and GPU usage well maybe this guy, but he has only 2titans how are u getting 99% GPU usage? maybe your resolution is helping?

I don't know why anyone would even look at game benchmarks for these types of cpu's. I doubt anyone in their right mind would be buying a 4960X strictly for gaming. Correct me if I'm wrong though tongue.gif
