i think the 3770k setup will only be worth upgrading from when 8 core haswell ex chips are out on the x99 blatform with ddr4 as rumored ...

but as far as quad cores go i would say no point in trying to get another quad core based pc the 3770k is good enough as far as the quad core era is still relevant for high end gaming PCs specially with the new consoles based on 8 core x86 CPUs rolleyes.gif

whats console 8 core x86 jw
post #17 of 23
The new CPUs that are going in the Xbox One and PS4. They've got eight cores, and the name for them are Jaguar.
They aren't very good CPUs in terms of computing. But, with them it probably means eight core CPUs will start to become mainstream.

yes specially because the same 8 core chip is powering both consoles and it's an x86 chip which understands the very same language as our PCs so porting the code that is using the 8 cores in the consoles will be easy which will result in pc games become more multi threaded from now on i.e 6 or 8 core CPUs will be more relevant for gaming than the quad cores we have now like the 3770k

so yea next upgrade should not be another quadcore, octa or hexa core at least !
