The 2600K is easily the best quad core on the market!

After all the question was 1366 or 1155? I will take a safe presumption that the OP is not going to buy a 980X.
Yes right now the 2600k is the better buy imo especially if you overclock. You compared it to the 980x saying it rivals it and you are right. If/When apps/games come out that support 12 threads, the 980x will be better. Im talking more about futureproofing. Not everybody replaces their cpus every year. Realistically it will take a few years before those apps that can take full advantage of a 6 core system to come out.

Nobody is wrong with their opinions. Its important to look at cpu longevity and i think most would have to agree most app/games dont utilize 6 cores yet. Right now the 2600k seems to be a value buy and is one of the top dogs.

I think by the time games and most apps utilize the 6 cores and 12 theads the single threaded performance of the 980x is going to be too far behind. Also by that time I'm sure mainstream will be on x6/x8 anyways.

It's already lagging behind the first new tech up since it's release -=> the mainstream variant no less.

I think by the time 6 threads are properly utilised in gaming the 980x will be obsolete. It's unfortunate, but right now the 980x is a very specialised piece of hardware.

SB @ 4.4GHz on stock cooler says enough for me. While I won't be upgrading since I am waiting for socket 1356/2011, its not hard to see how good SB is. If you're building a new PC, X58 platform is clearly not the best choice. Close to 980x/970 performance in heavily multi-threaded scenarios and much faster in lightly threaded scenarios @ 200 USD is a steal.

I will be waiting for the 8 core IB systems to come out and maybe upgrade then.

But seriously guys we are arguing over nothing, all these top end systems the change is so minuscule it doesn't matter. SB is simply evolutionary, not revolutionary. IB should be revolutionary.

Ivy Bridge is the same chip, shrunk to 22nm.

Why would that be revolutionary?

Ivy Bridge will also be made for 1155 afaik.

Do you guys think i7 2600k is a worthy upgrade from Phenom II X4 955? I just "feel" like it's a waste considering it's still a quad core >_>.

I wouldn't go i7, but the i5 is a worthy upgrade for sure.

The 8 core processor will be, which will be the chip I am getting.
