The "Waiting for Haswell" thread. - Page 3

post #21 of 28
Curiously, we find very few information about Haswell CPU now, even if this new architecture is due in 2 years. Next Intel IDC in China in April or San-Diego in September will reveal more insight about this CPU. According to Wikipedia, all Haswell CPU have at least 8 core (maybe less for low-power version). I’m curious about frequency considering that Haswell will use second generation 16nm process: I expect 4 GHz or more. (By the way, if AMD score with Bulldozer, maybe will see native 3.8 or 4Ghz Sandy Bridge in near future)

@ XX55XX / OP

Seriously man, get an Ivy Bridge i5 Quad Core, doesn't have to be an overclocker, but the overclocker will be top notch, don't doubt...

So it may set you back $400, is it worth it? Man if you are computing on a Core 2 Duo, you truly do not know what you are missing!

Add a $140 / 120 GB OCZ Agility 3 Drive to boot Windows 7 and we are talking VRRRMMMM! (SATA 6.0 Gbps required)

then of course an 8800 GT isn't going to cut Battlefield 3,

so you definitely want to look at a GTX 560 TI or 570,

naturally you would probably want to upgrade your power supply,

therefore you would probably want to get like a SeaSonic 620w 80+ Bronze Certified PSU

of course you would want to play in 1080p HD too

So definitely want a bit 23 - 27" Monitor, whatever you can afford...

so all that may set you back a $1,000 roughly?


Is it worth it? HELL YES! Now go save your money!

Well I doubt I can wait till Haswell, probably will have to though, so I guess I'll join you guys on the wait list. biggrin.gif

Can someone tell me some benefits about Haswell because I'm about to jump on Ivy right now.

I'm waiting for Haswell, I'm hoping to build during the summer of 2013, hopefully I'll enough cash and all the hardware will be out then.

I also like the idea of getting a tock rather than a tick. I was thinking Haswell will probably be compatible with Broadwell, just like Sandy/Ivy Bridge, but If I buy a motherboard for Haswell in say August will it support the next gen cpus? For IB, isn't it only certain z68 boards that work? I feel like if I want to go from Haswell to Broadwell I won't be able to get a board to support both right away.

Edit: To start off, Haswell is a new architecture rather than a die shrink. Haswell is to Broadwell as Sandy Bridge is to Ivy Bridge. Historically, new architectures give a bigger performance boost than die shrinks.
Aside from that, a lot of people (myself included) don't have the money to spend on a SB/IB rig right now, so we're saving up until Haswell/Broadwell/Whatever else is down the road comes out.

Broadwell? Come on, Rockwell sounded much nicer. Broadwell reminds me of Broadcom, Rockwell sounds like an instruction

I kind of went Sandy Bridge with a Xeon E3 1230 for my server, however my sig rig will have to hold out for probably another year.
