i5-2500k vs i7-2600k vs Phenom II X6 1100T

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Before everyone starts gangbashing the Phenom, I'm not looking to use this for Gaming or benchmarking. My sole priority is running a very processor and RAM heavy Java Program. This is my sole source of income so I'm looking to build another PC for it, too.

The application is processor heavy, it's Multithreaded my AMD Phenom II X6 is performing very, very well at a great price. I'd like to know if anyone has graphs or experience with the i5-2500k, i7-2600k and the Phenom 1100T.

The clocks would be around;
i5-2500k and i7-2600k @ 4.4-4.6ghz on Air
Phenom 1100T @ 4.1ghz on Air.

If you're going to post, please provide some sort of percentage or number comparison, as I have a budget but will stretch it for the right equiptment.

AGAIN, Don't post about Gaming or other performances. I'm after multithreaded application performance.

Thanks, Henry.

I hope this review gives you some kind of insight. Ignore the 3DMark 06 and Vantage part, as they refer to gaming or 3D performance. Look at all the other benches as they're related to what you're looking for:

a) if it's multithreaded, don't waste time looking at the 2500k(from the above charts)

b) might want to wait for bulldozer to be released first. clock for clock, i7 2600k > 1100T.

question would be how much benefit will HT and the extra speed from ghz give you vs 2 more cores. I would say intel would win

c) whats your current budget?

My i5-2500k @ 5Ghz was faster than my 1090T at 4.5GHz - in multi-threaded apps.

If the $200 price range is his sweet spot the i5 wins, if you're looking for more power and want to spend $320, the i7 is a clear winner as well.

Have you considered the i7 970? Can only imagine how 12 threads above 3.2Ghz or more would do. But I would probably go with the 2600k, as 4+Ghz 8 threads would be enough to suffice.

I'd go for a i7 970 build, if you can afford it. Best multi-threaded setup on the market right now.

I too am at a toss up, and on a budget, but I can not ever even if someone was selling a intel god system for $1 see myself using it, I would just post it on ebay and make enough money to build a AMD setup. . . Reason for my loathe of intel in my sig.

to be honest...when the 1100T drop to 150$ it will be a killer CPU
