i7 950 ,i7 980x ,i7 2600k

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Oki here is the thing i realy dont understand.
Ok i understand that i7 2600k migh be faster than i7 950 but how can i7 2600k be almoust same good as i7 980x?

i7 2600k is quad core with 8mb of L3 cache runing at 3.40ghz / 13,6ghz in total.
i7 980x six core with 12mb l3 cach and runing at 3.33ghz /20ghz in total

So what makes i7 2600k so great and overpovered?

New architecture, when the 2600K is OC'ed its on par or better than the 980X.

I don't mean to be rude, but that is not how you calculate a cpu's power. And the 2600k only comes close to the 980x in some benchmarks, but for apps that need a ton of cores, or more cores the better, then the 980x whoops the 2600k.

You forgot to multiply it by the amount of cache it has.

i7 2600k is quad core with 8mb of L3 cache runing at 3.40ghz / 13,6ghz in total. x 8 = 108.8 GHZ
i7 980x six core with 12mb l3 cach and runing at 3.33ghz /20ghz in total x 12 240 GHZ

The 980x is clearly the winner. You just need a PSU that can supply at least 1.21 Jiggawatts to keep it running.

Edit: To figure out how many Jiggawatts you need to power your CPU you need to divide the total amount of GHZ by 2. So 240 / 2 = 120. Since they don't sell 1.20 Jiggawatt power supplies, you have to get a 1.21 and it will be better allowing you to upgrade in the future. It's all about future proofing!

OP To be honest all the i7s, wether it be 950, 2600k or 980x for gaming you won't notice a damned bit of difference. The only difference you will notice is in benchmarking and then still the difference is moot. But overall the 980x is better due to it being a 6 core processor but that only helps with doing things that can USE those six core, which if you are an average user you never will.

TL;DR Go for the cheapest option.

*Heavy Sigh*
An i7 980x runs (default) at 3.33GHz. period. The amount of cores/cache/threads do not add to it.

An i7 2600k runs (default) at 3.40GHz. period. same thing as above, there is no "bonus" to add with the amount of cores, etc.

As previously stated, if the software you are using relies on multi-core processing, the 980x wins for fastest processor hands down.

The new avx instruction set will help the 2600k smoke the other two VERY soon, as it changes from 128bit to 256bit interface with windows 7 sp1, as seen in the new linx.
