I'll admit it, I love x58 so much i own 4 x58 desktops now and a x58 laptop! I need a new motherboard for the x58 laptop though, and i'm broke >.>

lol GEN, I'm curious how my spare UD7 Rev2 X58 board would do with a W3680 or W3690 smile.gif

When I read reviews on the net about the i7 920 vs the 2500k, almost all reviews state the 2500k to be the better gaming CPU.

But those are reviews from 2011, when the 2500k launched.

Games are different know.

Are they more multi-threaded in 2016 that Hyper Threading makes a big difference know?

How will CPU performance change with vulkan and DX12?

Will the 4 threads of the 2500k limit the performance and introduce stutter before the 920?

Is the X58 platform a better bet? Besides beeing older, it can take 6 core cpus. Will that make a difference in longevity for games this year and early 2017?

I know the 2500k has faster cores and better IPC. But I am afraid the CPU will come to 100% usage and start to stutter with future games that can use more than 4 cores.

Cheers!

Worrying about how processors from 5+ years ago will handle games next year and beyond is a bit silly. If you're that worried, save up for new hardware.

For strictly playing a game, I don't see the quad core becoming obsolete for a few more years.

O.K. This gene is possessed. I'm not even sure what's causing it to restart and fail to post at random. Finally got it to stop by setting the overclocking settings to manual and disabling the thermal limits, but I doubt it's going to stay on. Not sure if I should replace it or just upgrade to a newer platform. I need higher single thread performance, and don't want to overclock on a server.

Besides the fact this thread is for X58 xeons and not 920's and the like, honestly, grab an X5650 for cheap, as the performance increase is greater than that of a 2nd gen i5/i7

I just installed the 1070 FTW in my x58 Classified rig (x5650@4.4Ghz) setup and it was worth it. Single card and I can manage newer titles in surround = thumb.gif. Hard to believe I've had this board for so long and have not upgraded it yet lol. It just won't die!!

Not even close in benchmarks

The 1070 was at stock clocks (boosted to 2012Mhz), Titans at 1260Hhz, Titans in the SR-2 rig and 1070 in the x5650 rig:

http://www.3dmark.com/compare/fs/2580230/fs/9660821

Granted, I haven't had the 3 way Titan rig up and running for ages (still working on it) and the driver's have improved since this run.
