IvyB-E vs. Haswell

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello all,

I have a build coming up in the next month or so and I'm wondering what the general consensus is here at OCN as to which is a better value for a gaming/folding rig. I'm intrigued by the IvyB-E simply because it's new and obviously its an enthusiast grade CPU. However, I'm not sure if it beats the value of Haswell at this point. How does IvyB-E OC compared to Haswell?

Cheers!

ivb-e platform outright sucks. has since sb-e...

haswell has it all if you're only using 2 gpus.

ivb-e has...more ram slots if you buy one with more than 4 (more memory bandwidth too.)

more pci-e lanes. less sata 6gbps...x79 sucks.

x79 sucks.

Depending the application, the X79 platform and SB-E / IB-E processors can be VASTLY superior to the 3770K and 4770K. I'm not sure how you came to your conclusion that they "suck" -- what, not enough SATA 3 ports for you? That's a weak argument vs. hex core processors with larger cache, 40 lanes, and double the RAM bandwidth - and access to double the RAM capacity using cheap 8GB DIMMS.

There are people that spend their time doing H.264 encoding and audio resampling, folding, 3D modeling, raytracing, etc where a 3930K or 4930K will honestly run 1.5x faster than the best Socket 1150/1155 CPUs.

I guess that sucks. lol.
