faster clock for clock, use less power/run cooler (thus overclock better).

The benchmarks I've seen have it stock at about the same power as the i7-970.

Edit: Also yes, I'm very excited. It's going to be my first rig. I've built for friends before, but this one is going to be my masterpiece.

except sandy bridge can oc too, it's like comparing 980x stock with your 920 OC

Sure, but you'd have to buy the 'K' series chips for that. If they're multiplier limited, I can hardly see Intel letting a cheap chip overclock too far (even if it's K series).

All I'm saying is that I bought my CPU and processor a year and a half ago for a combined price of £350. I don't really want to spend between £300 and £600 (depending on how far the cheap ones can overclock) on a new CPU-motherboard combo that beats my current system by a fairly insignificant amount.

Put simply - there's a reason why Intel still shows Bloomfield chips in the high end Performance segments of their roadmap.

Using intel terminology its more tick than tock in my opinion. Looking at about 10% in encoding and such, and i guess you can juice it up a bit more to about 4.7ish. Again, seems more tick than tock

i7 is more than enough for anything i need, not to mention i picked up mine for 100 bucks. Cant complain.
post #20 of 35
I got a question since i'm a bit confused about Cepheus' graph.. I'm gona buy my first pc assembly and I was wondering what CPU is better in overall performance (if some1 knows):
i7 950 or i7 2600K?? I was happy of my final decision on i7 950 but with Sandybridge's arrival, i'm not sure what to do now.. What if Sandy wasn't that great after all?
