The Great Debate! 1366 vs 1155 - For Gaming Only.

post #1 of 118
Thread Starter 
The past couple of weeks we've seen a major divide amongst our fellow Intel brethren. Instead of Intel vs Amd it has turned into internal fighting, and the cost has been information. Most the debates revolve around opinion, and I believe it's time to change all that, by producing a thread filled with facts.

To do this we need to put some rules in place, one of the major ones is max cores/threads allowed needs to be set in stone at 4. The reason for this is because games today generally do not support more than 4 cores/threads, and many of them support only 2-3. To balance the equation, and bring facts in a world where benchmarks use all available cores and threads we must limit them ourselves to find the truth.

With that in mind, I will provide a cpu score from 3D Mark Vantage, other requests can be made, and I welcome users of 1366 chips of all walks of life to provide their results, but please remember to disable HT and limit yourself to 4 cores and 4 threads only.



As we can see a i5-2500k running 5GHz with 4 cores and 4 threads gets a score of just over 25000 (no - that isn't something I planned).

However 1 test isn't going to be enough, so please suggest other cpu related gaming tests we can all do as a community to shed some light on the subject of Intel and it's current gaming capabilities.

Here is an example of what I was able to achieve with 4 cores, and 4 threads on my AMD 965:

It really depends on the game though. With most games it depends a lot on the GPU for getting better performance. However one game that goes against this trend heavily, and one of my favorites, is World of Warcraft. And at stock clocks, the 2500k yields the most FPS out of tons compared. This is a big part of the reason I upgraded.

Check it.

Yes, World of Warcraft runs 2 threads on 2 cores only. It's one of many that does so, and part of the reason this thread was created was to alleviate some of the misinformation about core/thread count when it comes to gaming.

I think this thread should be opened up to more than games however, such as all applications that use 4 cores or less. I am fairly confident that the new architecture will give 1155 a clock-for-clock advantage in any application when using the same number of cores. Sure a 980x will be faster than a 2600k in a heavily multi-threaded rendering application, but that doesn't mean anything because it has 2 more physical cores as well as 4 more threads. Although when I look at this chart, I wonder why exactly people are defending the 980x so much considering it loses in most of Anandtech's testing. I think people equate the price with how good it should be, and have become delusional into believing just because it costs $1000 it is the best CPU on the market.

I think it's more along the lines of them trying to justify paying $1000 to reaffirm their epeen status in the CPU world. So far the only people who have ever seemed to bash Sandybridge have been people who own older technology like 1366 or 1156, and quite frankly they act as if they're insecure about their PC.

Although i think this is a good idea and im looking forward to seeing some actual diffrences in scores between different cpu's etc, i think this thread will be doomed to insecure epeeners that will inevitably turn into keyboard warriors.

weve moved against each other because its a widely known fact that AMD havent got diddly squat on intel chips anymore... still rather have my 1156 than anything else.

take the jokes people.
its a matter of preference.

Haha AMD is still struggling to beat 775. Meanwhile Intel is just having fun competing with themselves just for the sake of competition.

People always have something to argue about, so since there's no competition from amd we have to divide.

We shall unite once Bulldozer arrives guys!
