    Check out some benchmark results of Intel's Core i7-4960X Ivy Bridge-E" processor as Asian tech board Coolaler decided to leak them. The chip was compared directly to the Core i7-3970X ...

    Given Asrock support Xeons on their X79 boards AND overclocking... I sense an upgrade soon :D

    Looks useless, if it were 8 core i would reconsider, i7 4770k it is.

    I use to say that too, until I jumpped on a 6 core processor. Haven't looked back since. :nerd:

    are the ftw+ 680`s your cards or are they clients?
    I had to drop down to 1254 due to warm weather
    what clocks did you get out of em?

    It was my main rig until my wife decided to hijack it for her side work and decided she wasn't giving it back. With her being gone for a week, I can actually use it again. But i've modded the bios to boost to 1267MHz. That's the highest they will go anyways. Everything is under water though, so my temps are pretty good.

    Do we know how many cores the full IB-E die has?

    Looks useless? What is that supposed to mean?

    You'd buy an 8 core or a 4 core but not 6, that makes no sense at all.


    For me it's all about overclocking potential, if it can hit 4.5ghz on air, I will definitely be tempted.

    because 6 cores on a dead socket is useless. If it were a 8 core then yeah and by Haswell i could always slide in Broadwell and be a little more to date, even if its a fake 8 threaded cpu.


    I dont do heavy multi media, but i know i will benefit from HT non the less. And Haswell new 7way branch will be more efficient (also HT, bigger registers) then 5way IB ever will be, that's why.

    Their numbering sucks so mainstream lga 1155 sandy bridge is I7-3770k and I7-4770k is haswell but ivy-e bridge is I7-4960x is the same number series as the haswell that makes no sense.

    There are reasons for Intel to have those 2 cores disabled:

    - Better yields
    - Contains the CPU development rhythms

    With AMD unable to challenge, what reason do they have to sell the fully enabled core?

    Sorry I couldn't help but to ask. Overclock that monster to do what? Gaming?

    Obvioulsy, to raise synth bench scores. Moreover..."if it ain't broke, it needs more tweaking"

    Yes. I expect more games to benefit from 6 cores in the next year or so (these wont be released for some time) but there will certainly be a lot of games that don't.

    If I were to get IVY-E, I wouldn't want signficantly worse performance in games that don't benefit from more cores, so I would also want to be able to reach a decent clockspeed.

    you will upgrade ? for 5-8% gain from your 6cores SandyB-E to IvyB-E ? Dont you think it could have been better they release a 8cores / 16T IB-E, at least the performance difference would have been interessant.. ( I can understand they dont want launch it outside their Xeon Lines anyway. )

    The question is not really to know if it is a good jump from a quadcore , but more from a SB-E 6cores to an IB-E. 6cores. I hope they really overclock better of the actual SB-E, otherwise, even this few % gain will even be negate.

    Ah OK, 8 cores would be fine but 6 cores is useless, I really have no idea what you're taking about!

    Dead socket - when was the last time you upgraded your cpu without changing your motherboard? Broadwell is just a die shrink Haswell so will be the equivalent of going from a 2700k to 3700k. Now that's a useless upgrade!

    5 to 10 %... :)muhahaha, great news!!! no reason to upgrade my 3930K which is running @ 4.8 and not reaching 70 degrees until haswell at least. and with the crappy specs of future consoles I have a feeling it will take a long time until my CPU will be the bottleneck. BF3 maxxed out wont even take it to 35% with most cores scratching their ba..s :)
