2600K vs I7-950

post #1 of 355
Thread Starter 
obviously this has been beaten to death... but just looking at the Passmark rankings (which now have multiple benchies for the sandy bridge models) the base stock clock numbers are:
http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu_lookup.php?cpu=Intel+Core+i7-2600K+%40+3.40GHz



2600K : 9512
i7-950 : 6335

meaning a 50% base clock improvement and roughly on par with the 6core i7's for a whispered street price of probably about $400

is there any reason to buy an i7?
this data flies contrary to the leaked taiwan user benchies... opinions and comments?


bump:
=================
numbers indexed for clock rate:

i7 950: 2090
2600k: 2797

33.8% faster

Passmark isn't a very reliable site

That Bench is WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY OFF!

When picking between the 2...

1366 is going to win in pretty much everything...

SB may be 2% faster then some of the lower end i7s

CPU heavy tasks SB
Everything else 1336.

ON a budget SB as well cause it is cheaper then 1366.

so passmark wouldn't be reliable for a cpu to cpu same test basic comparison of horsepower? why?

It's not one benchmark, they've got like 6 to 8 tests of the 2600k, 2500, 2600 etc... anybody got another better benchmark to post in retort?

just to play the other side of that for a minute... I have yet to see another actual base cpu comparison / benchmark...

Yeah...pretty much all evidence points to everything you said here being wrong. We'll see though.

PassMark is a terrible benchmark however the i7 2600K should be a little faster then the i7 950. Also consider they OC much better, 4.5Ghz+ is looking pretty attainable for most chips for the 2600K is looking like the better option.

all the other passmark numbers look pretty much spot on... why woudl the SB numbers be unreliable for comparison on the one chart?

The 2600k is stock 3.4ghz and 950 is stock 3.06 that is why you see the difference.

I plan to be crushing SB benchmarks for afew months to come with my sig.

The stuff in my sig is worth more then the SB stuff if it was really better i could sell my stuff buy the SB stuff and have money left over.

It is cheaper tho it depends on what you are wanting to do with your system which one you choose.

other than forum post benchmarks... I don't see anything that would contradict what passmark is saying... if somebody has something better... post it

I honestly have a really tough time believing that a production 2600k will only be a couple % faster than a low end i7....

2600k will be a few steps ahead of a I7 950. Don't listen to Hokies. He's a Fanboi and doesn't like change very much smile.gif
