My i5-2500k ($225) vs my 1090T ($230) - Page 3

post #21 of 123
Vantage IS CPU limited right?
post #22 of 123
Personally I see no point upgrading at the moment any i7 or phenom II x6. Just because it might be faster nothing is really going to totally utilize that power to the fullest not for the next 3 years at least. Overclock that intel bad boy for me though. Rumor is you can hit 5.0ghz air cooled. I am hoping to see some bulldozer benchmarks in the future. I am very curious about the shared threads and stuff.

Really? Cause I was looking into boards for my 1090T when my DDR2 board died and at the same time was going to move up to DDR3 and the good boards were $180 to $200 with limited selection. My UD4 cost me $189 shipped. I'm not seeing the price difference you're referring to, both sides have cheaper/more expensive boards as well.

Vantage is cpu bound really, on my 1090T I had a 30% bottleneck on my single gtx 470 during the gpu tests. My 1090T at 4.5GHz pegged 100% on a single core and my GTX 470 dropped off to 70% usage a few times during the test.

When I comes to the cpu bound tests though it uses all the cores/threads available which helps bring the 1090T score back up.

The i5-2500k gave 0 bottleneck and was only at 63% usage on a single core in the areas were the 1090T was pegged at 100%.

The impressive part is that I'm scoring higher - with less cores... That translates over to real life gaming very well since most games are 2-3-4 core max optimized the extra 2 cores from my 1090T were never used, and sometimes only 2-3 of them were used.

In the end all it really means is that you can add more GPU power with more pretty lights without seeing low GPU usage because the games don't take full advantage of the 1090Ts cores.

That is why I switched to the i5-2500k actually. Lower core count, but enough for current gen games. I don't need HT because games don't use it, and the 1090T's 6 cpus weren't being pushed either so getting faster single threaded performance, on less cores was the big reason I changed over.

@ op - I have a doubt which setup is more future proof .. 4 core i5 2500 or a 6 core phenom ?

The i5-2500? No k suffix?

Since the 2500 is $10 less than the k and it doesn't have an unlocked multiplier, not sure why you'd go that route.

Can you clarify? I wouldn't get a i5-2500 either way frown.gif

You are so hostile, it's quite funny really.

I'll wait for the the person the question was intended for to respond, since that would affect my thoughts on the x6 as well.

@ Ballathefeared...

Very nice testing keep up the good work i've wondering this for a while...they looked pretty even for awhile then that 2500k started to do what it does best @5ghz+

I hope someone else can do a 1100T vs the 2600k
