X5472 vs E5472 vs e8500@4Gz

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello!

I know I am sort of repeating myself, but how faster would be X5472 and E8472 at stock speeds than my Core 2 Duo in modern games? Best would be to give me the graph with similiar performing main lane desktop processor like q9550? And secondly, I wanted to ask, which of X5472 and E5472, is better? I am meaning to overclock them at LGA 775 platform. Only difference I know is TDP, than does it make it better to go for E5472? What about their max multiplayers?

Some sort of evidence would be nicely seen, as there is almost nothing on internet ^^ Thanks!

X5472 multipier = 7.5, 400mhz fsb
120W TDP, 63c max temprature

E5472 multiplier = 7.5, 400mhz fsb
80W TDP, 67c max temprature -> Probably the chance on a good OCer

To overclock these chips, you will need a motherboard that is capable of atleast 425-450mhz FSB to make it worth it.

The maximum overclock on these chips will be 7.5 x [your maximum FSB]

In modern games you will definetly notice a big bump in speed. Mostly becaues you use a dual core now, and those are quad core cpu's.

If the increased performance is worth the $$$ i dont know.

Maybe its smart to start saving to upgrade in near future.

Just to clarify a few things here the X5472 and E5472 both run on LGA 771 socket NOT an LGA 775 socket. Therefore I am assuming you did a socket mod in which case i will say the E5472 is about 2.7x faster than your core 2 duo HOWEVER you did not post which model of core 2 duo you have so my number may be a little less. I am also assuming this actually works. Since you are taking a processor that was never designed to run on that socket I cannot say for sure if everything will work. As for overclocking them I cannot say for sure. At base clock the E5472 would be about 2.7x faster than your current core 2 duo. Please respond by posting which model of core 2 duo you have.

Take a look at title smile.gif It is e8500@4Ghz. I am willing to use mod for that, indeed. I think main performance would be due to additional cores, how about single thread performance? I wanted to know what processor e5472 can be comparised to in terms of performance. I also want only to upgrade processor only as for now I will be not able to afford anymore. And it will be quite good anyway. I am playing at low resolution with 7950HD
