    Yeah, I'm worried that intel is going to make them pricey. I can't spend much more than $1,200 on an entire rig.

    Why not get the 4770k? It should last you a long time.

    Yeah I too will be using my 920 for some time. I have no incentive to upgrade .. I'm only looking forward to Rocksteady's next game, rest of the Walking dead episodes, and South Park. Maybe "Mad Max" by Avalanche as well.

    I fell a bit out of the loop since getting this processor. Honestly, my 2600K is still quite the capable processor even now. Still, the upgrade itch comes every so often regardless of how logical it is to scratch it. Think I'll hold out for more price-friendly 6 or 8 core chips if I can.

    Couldn't pay me to buy an AMD processor for my rig :D

    I might get the next equivalent to the 4770k or just the 4770k if the refresh is nearly the same, we'll see. I'll stop hijacking this thread now.

    You've been waiting to upgrade since you joined GURU3D ha ha.

    I built the first one with the help of you guys here and I never left.

    Only switched gpu's a few times :nerd:

    I'm glad Intel is pushing forwards, but software is so far behind hardware it doesn't really matter.

    I'm pretty sure I read an article from AnandTech or X-bit Labs that said Broadwell will be using the 9 series chipset. So either way, we will be required to upgrade to a new motherboard if we want to use the full potential of that CPU.

    I don't know, for me ever since i7 920 it feels like the performance gain to 2600K, 3770K, 4770K is no big deal compared to how big performance gains were in the past from one generation to another. The only thing I noticed when I went from 920 to 3770K was that my max stable OC on the first was 4.2 while on the new on 4.8 (even though I'm with it at 4.2 now to tame my electric bill a bit lol) and that it has PCI-e 3.0 and UEFI, which is nice if you have multi GPU setup.

    It's pretty clear to me that the future lies in multicore, there will always be slight performance gains per core with each generation but we will see big gains when we will have 8, 12, 16 etc. cores and of course aplications that make use of them rather than per clock performance.

    That's why it's important for AMD to be competitive, Intel has no incentive currently to improve their performance CPU's to any great extent.

    I wish i had a Like button, that's the truth fact. Competition is one of the factors that drives this industry forward :)

    I've read that too and none was confirmed by intel.. First rumor started in China and then all copy-pasta that info.

    Of course intel will put new chipsets, its intel doh. But I bet it will still be compatible just like z68 is with IB. OC'ing shouldn't be a issue, i didn't see any with z68 and IB.
    Ok apart from missing few parts like, rapid start, smart connect, etc.. Irrelevant gimmicks anyway


    If its not compatible then not a big deal, im happy with this 4770k @ 4.7ghz has enough power for 3-4years+ :)

    Your above post is completely true the biggest performance jump for Intel started with their socket LGA 775 core 2 duo dual + quad core cpu's,
    after that the LGA 1366 core i7 cpu line and lastly i will put to the list LGA 1155 Sandy Bridge core i7 2600k + 2700k.
    Mostly for their great overclocking potential, especially the cherry picked 2700k chips which can easily do 5ghz (if you have a good sample).
    With relatively low voltage and with great temps without reaching the danger zone which i consider 1.4v to be maximum safe voltage for 24/7 use with temps below 75c.
    (I got lucky with my 2700k and can do 5ghz with 1.38v no HT with very good temps for 24/7 use but in winter only with a H100.)
    But generally speaking the truth is that an LGA 1366 core i7 is still a very strong cpu and as you stated the performance gains to 2600K, 3770K, 4770K
    are quite small.

    Yep spot on without any competitive AMD desktop cpu's, Intel has no reason to make big jumps in performance anymore.

    Sandy Bridge is a golden bridge. there is no worthy upgrade over it at all, maybe intel next next gen, they made Sandy bridge godlike cpus.

    really wish I had waited for one...and I didnt get a k. Still you learn by your mistakes. (plus my current chip isnt a complete lemon).

    Heh, even a OC'ed 2600K still stacks up nicely. Think I'll wait till DDR4 arrives.

    Lame but no surprise there, when AMD will get their stuff sorted out in the CPU market like they did in the GPU market, things like these will happen less (hopefully).
