I7 950 - i7 960 - i7 970 - which!??! - Page 8

post #71 of 154
I dont have the programs he is going to be using, they arent exactly your normal freeware things.

CS5 is 1k + to buy
AutoCAD is 4500 - 5k

Although I would love to learn more about them. I work with a 2d CAD program for blueprints at my job.

These programs always intrigue me. If you google them there are some crazy videos out there showing them in motion....

Think of the movie industry & special effects

I seen he changed the thread title now. Hard to choose when so many options are out there. Perhaps he has a few cheaper applications he wouldn't mind seeing a benchmark for?

here are a few quotes from this review!!

http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/cpu...x_6.html#sect1

#1 Video transcoding using x264 codec is one of those few tasks where the number of processor cores matters a lot. That is why here Core i7-2600K turns out as much as 33% slower than Core i7-990X

#2 We see the same picture in Adobe Premiere Pro. Six-core Gulftown processors manage to retain their leadership in video processing and transcoding applications.

#3 The more cores - the better the performance. This principle works great in Cinebench, that is why processors with old microarchitecture – Core i7-970 and Core i7-990X Extreme Edition – win the race here.

#4 This is another rendering application, but the results are again almost the same: six-core Core i7-990 Extreme Edition outperforms quad-core Core i7-2600K by about 9%. So, even though Intel has already rolled out more progressive microarchitecture, six-core Gulftown processors remain the better choice for 3D modeling and CAD applications, just like for video processing.

No Mike, 10% slower is better cause it gets more FPS.....


It makes sense if you dont think about it...




I think people get confused at times with a bench result. Like I said, when you start adding those 1 - 2 minute tests on the review sites up to hours or days the results are big...

If a race car is 5% faster than another, after one lap they are slightly ahead, after 500 they have probably lapped the other....


Gotta think bigger, the OP has stated he loads renders that take hours, if he can shave 10% off each hour and has the budget for it why suggest anything else...

I never denied those facts. I've been contemplating getting a 970 myself, but with Sandy Bridge -E coming out, as well as Bulldozer, I want to see how things pan out first.

Like I said in my earlier post, the OP did NOT state a budget for the build, so I recommended the 2600k based on its price/performance.

With the $4k budget and his uses, which are the only uses where a 6 core 1366 CPU is justifiable today. He is definitely better off going with the 970, putting it under water, and overclocking it to 4.5, which it should reach quite easily. No point in getting a 990X IMO, unless of course he WANTS one.

I didn't mean anything by it, I actually thought you were joking



In terms of future proofing or upgrading, which chip-set is better to go for?

Will there be any hexa-core 1155 chips coming in the future? Is the support for 1366 relatively dead/dying?

You must've missed this, but I was kinda cranky at the time.

I can guarantee you that a 6 core SB -E processor WILL outperform the 970, at that point he could easily sell the 2600K and upgrade to it.

And there's this thing called Ivy Bridge coming out next year, and some of those processors will be compatible on 1155.
Intel's timeline:


Sandy Bridge -E will be 6 core processors.

So I could just grab a 2600k on the 1155 now and at the end of the year just upgrade to the 2nd gen Extreme hexa, which should clock harder again...Sounds like a plan to me!

no and yes....

No hexacore cpu's for 1155, there will be Ivy Bridge for 1155, but the P67 chipset will have limited features, the new high end socket will be 2011. If you notice the "mainstream" will be 1155 and its not clear what IB are coming.

What will come and how good it performs is still unknown.

Basically 1366 is whats there, no new cpu's that I am aware of. But it is the only Intel 6 core/ 12 thread cpu socket...

You aware of this? ASUS Z8NA-D6 (ASMB4-IKVM) Dual LGA 1366
That and 2 ntel Xeon E5649 Westmere-EP 2.53GHz Hexacore cpu's

just messin on the above
