what about some gaming? i7 lga1155/1150 vs Xeons

I really need that info

Sorry for the late reply guys. Alright I'm going to post a reply to everyone I missed earlier.

I got the info directly from Intel's website. X58 has DMI as well, but it uses it in a different way [sort of]. DMI 2.0 uses x4 link I believe and Intel states 20 GB\s on their diagrams and in their offical PDF. There was pretty lenghty revised PDF on both the X58 and X79. Intel also said that the X79 only supports PCI-E 2.0. PCI-E 3.0 depends on the CPU. Then again they could just be throwing the PCI-E 3.0 out there to make current and potential X79 users feel better about their purchase. Who knows it IS Intel you know.

No problem man. I put A LOT OF TIME into this review and I still have a lot of more things to add to this review. Things like pictures of the results and more tests I haven’t gotten around to posting. Making the charts were a pain at first, but I’m used to it now. I'm going to be adding the Gaming Benchmarks veru soon. I’m going to upload my 3DMark data first. I'm running two GTX 670s as well. So please post your scores in 3DMark 11, 3DMark Vantage and 3DMark [all test – Fire strike etc] and I'll compare them in my review. I could really use more i7-920 data especially for gaming.

Thanks for taking the time to do this OP. Very much appreciated!

Hey man it was no problem at all. The latest and greatest i7-4960X only has one extra Instruction Set that the X5660 doesn’t have; and that is the “AVX” Instruction . The other major difference is the architecture itself. Instead of revising the X58 architecture, Intel just came out with the X79 altogether. It appears that the X99 could follow suit and use the same LGA2011[-3] socket [R]. I’m glad I didn’t run out and spend a ton of money when I thought heavily on the X79. Hardware-wise there isn’t much different. They overclock to about the same speed unless you have some serious cooling go higher than 4.8Ghz. Speaking about the software behind it; I believe a lot of people have been claiming bias against Intel+benchmarks. I think I was reading something about Cinebench a while ago.

AMD has been claiming this for a while and was right back in the day. I’m hoping AMD can get it together and get over the Intel hump. That’s going to be hard since some programs are specifically written to run slower on non-Intel CPUs . I’m hoping this still isn’t the case, but it appears AMD can never catch up. Cinebench is featured on Intel’s website as well so that should make you think a little bit.

Coming very soon. I’ll try to get some of the data posted tonight along with pictures. I’d have to find similar setups if I can, but I’m going to post them anyways and update later. You guys can fell free to compare the scores to yours. I'm running the 2GB GTX 670 2-Way SLI. I'm looking to upgrade to a 7990 Quad or something better soon. GTX 670 2-Way is doing fine right now.

yes who has an i7 sb/ib/hw please share your performance`s result with the OP please


And a question does these x56xx reach 4.7ghz usually?

I have had 3 overclocked hex core Westmere Xeons, mostly X5650s. They have all overclocked to 4.4-4.6 with around 1.35-1.4V. None reliably beyond that, the BCLK starts to get tricky.

Well I can't speak for them all, but they have plenty of headroom. Well at least my X5660 does. If you have good cooling and a good MB+CPU+RAM you shouldn't have a lot of issues. The vCore will be the tell tale. I was lucky enough to hit 4.6Ghz 0.04v outside of Intel max recommendation [1.35v]. Expert overclockers shouldn't have a issue with these CPUs though. Increasing the BLCK to 200 will get you 4.8Ghz with C-states enabled. 191 BLCK will net you around 4.6Ghz. Hopefully you can maintain that with decent vCore [4.6Ghz]. Outside of benchmarking....you'll only need around 4Ghz on a daily basis. If you are running high end graphic card like Quad\SLI\Crossfire X then 4.2-4.4Ghz would be better.

Well do you have sone i7 for testing?

I've never had issues with the BLCK on my rig. My biggest issue is the amount of voltage it takes to run more than 5Ghz. Going over 200 or 215 might be a issue on some motherboards.

which mobo do you recommend for the xeons x5650s?that could reach your frecuency
