i7 990x

post #1 of 109
Thread Starter 
I wanted to update my system to the latest and greatest for my x58 platform so I jumped the gun and ordered the i7 990x. close to 0 new info on this cpu so it's hard to get exited at this point.hopefully my new cpu will be the oc king till the end of year.
Did anyone else get this cpu or am I alone.headscratch.gif

Imo that was a waste dude. All that chip is, is a 980x with the multi bumped up 1. Dont get me wrong, its still a killer chip, and the fastest out there at this time, but i would have gone with the 980x, assuming i had that much money.

Most people will flame you for this, i wont! Congrats on your new badass cpu purchase!

Well you can get a 980x now used for around $650 are so thats the best bang for the buck at the moment and i dont think the 990x is going to really be that much better except price wise.................Good Luck.

If money ain't an issue, I see nothing wrong in buying it. Otherwise, I'd just save the cash for Ivy Bridge. By all means, it's nice for benching and stuff, but fairly pointless, unless, as I said, got the money.

I don't understand..you wont see much improvement over your 960. If you want the latest and greatest get a GTX 580 and SLI it with a 2560x1600 monitor. That my friend is the latest and greatest.

What are you using it for? If the only thing your using it for is gaming, then im sorry but that was a big waste of money....you won't even be using 3 cores of the 6 that if offers. If your really going to be doing some hard core video editing, encoding, or what ever there is out there, then its money spent well. For gaming, you will basically see less than a 1% improvement from your i7 960.
