[TPU] Intel Finalizes Feature-sets of the First Wave of 9-series Chipsets - Page 5

post #41 of 60
Boring...
Shame I have the itch to upgrade even though I don't need it because I rarely play games that are demanding (mainly play CSGO and LoL) because I can't seem to find one that's interesting to me. I guess I'll suffer until Skylake lol.

Ugh I wanted broadwell, was going to upgrade and I dont feel like waiting another year rolleyes.gif

Is that M.2 slot going to be a standard for Z97? I think the Z87 Maximus VI Gene has it, and probably a few other boards, that was one of the main reasons I wanted to get a Maximus Gene VI, I can throw in a Wifi/Bluetooth module and have wifi connectivity aswell as bluetooth connectivity for PS3 and PS4 pads along with a BT Headset so much more convenient since I was contemplating a SLI setup with an MATX case and board, i doubt I'd be able to fit a Wifi card in there, if it becomes a standard for Z97 I'd have a much more positive outlook for it over Intel not releasing Broadwell for desktops.

Broadwell isn't gonna be any better than this either. You're gonna have to stick it out until Skylake

Well, maybe, but I should upgrade anyway as there is at least some more difference than with Haswell refresh, I believe its around 15-20% more performance with haswell vs sandy, maybe haswell refresh gives another 5% and Broadwell gives around 10-15% more? so a total of 30-35% improvement is quite good, IF broadwell's OC capabilities are as good as sandy's... i'm at 36% OC right now for 24/7 at so fresh temps it's so beautiful it makes me cry tears of joy.

Intel is finally addressing the needs of the enthusiast community once again after a lackluster X79 chipset and the Ivy/Haswell TIM debaucle, I'm guessing they're realizing once more just how much money we are willing to spend.

The typical OCN enthusiast: biggrin.gif


The unlocked haswell refresh chips are devil's canyon, which contain different TIM and packaging tweaks. Doubt the MSRP will raise for the i7-4790k over the i7-4770k.

There won't be a i7-4790k and then a i7-4790x. the K models = devil's canyon. The non k models don't have these tweaks and are part of the standard haswell refresh.

Awesome thank you for the updates, +1 Devil's Canyon is at least very welcomed and interesting but my 5.2Ghz 3770K isn't giving up anytime soon, I can only hope Intel applies the same methodology to HW-E and we can purchase a higher binned 5820K 6-core. smile.gif

yeah 5.2ghz 3770k....I think you will be fine for a while lol smile.gif That's a beastly overclock.

Haswell-E will all be soldered packages similar to SNB-E and IVB-E, so TIM will be good there. I believe it breaks down into one 8 core extreme edition and two 6 core offerings, but we don't know for sure. I would kind of expect you'll be able to overclock the 4 core devil's canyon more than the 6 and 8 core HSW-E. IVB-E didn't seem to overclock any better than the ivy bridge core lineup despite the soldered TIM.

Yea, I would hate to throw $1200-$1500 into a Rampage 5 Extreme a 6-core Haswell-E CPU and DDR4 memory only to have a less responsive rig with single and slightly threaded apps, than I do now. Most likely wait for the reviews and move to a new platform early 2015, not giving up on this 3770k just yet. smile.gif

Still, I cannot wait to see all the new Haswell Refresh Z97 mobos and details on all the new chips. Maximus 7 Formula and Extreme will both be gorgeous.

if they put 8core only as 1k chip, they would lose volume as everyone would just buy the cheaper 6 core for 350-400bucks instead of the 550buck 6 core. its all about volume. a corp with 100k+ employees dont build a chip they sell only few thousand. nvidia did it, for 3 months, so as others pointed out if they release 1k 8 core, the 550buck 8 core will be released few months down the road. otherwise with what we know of x99, motherboard vendors wont see black numbers for years to come
