With an i7-980x?
In terms of overclockability, and just overall power?
I would say Ivy is on par unless you OC higher than normal on water imo.
If overclocking is your prerogative, then go with the Core i7 2700K, it'll overclock a lot better.
Why exactly do you need an upgrade? The 980X is a fantastic chip.
I would say not worth it, look this bench
Sb-E would be a better investment and you can upgrade to Ib-E 8 core (16 threads)
I`m guessing a majority of those benches react better to the higher stock clock on the 3770k. would be better to see a clock for clock comparison
How does that song go again,....?
