    They're*.

    Calm down and take a deep breath. Intel only ever send cherry picked samples. We'll see what the real things do when people actually start reporting their results. Everything so far has been engineering samples.

    Yeah, your sample size of 1 sure outweighs the 50+ I'm thinking of from those I know and results I saw in charts of OC threads where people report in.
    That doesn't make any sense. Did you even read what I wrote?

    OK mate, have a good day. I can see you're a little incensed by my comment.

    Yeah, this wouldn't be happening if AMD wasn't such garbage. And you shouldn't expect their next offering to challenge Intel either.

    Same CPU, different OC results. What I read wrong?

    Edit: We talking about how it is a premature to talk about 7700k overclock abilities before seeing the real CPU performance in market. Are we on same note or no?

    We're more or less on the same note, it's just the wording of that is very strange, perhaps it doesn't translate well. I was just thinking you might skimmed through the part where I already brought up well OCing 4770s. I was trying to make a point that despite those chips the majority I've seen reported aren't anything like that.

    A 7700K is only 800MHz off from 5GHz but I'd still be surprised if an average 7700K can hit that on air with the same voltages as the engineering samples.

    So, I guess the whole point is let's wait for a large enough sample size from user reports before we jump to any conclusions.

    My bad I missed quotes. That quote wasn't for you. It was for Matt26LFC.

    I only backup your opinion regarding different OC results on same CPU. Like yours and Matt26LFC's 4770k.

    From Guru3D i would expect better IGPU test.. 1 syntetic benchmark come on..

    There was no need. 1-2fps difference from what i saw.

    I also dont think anyone buying a 400Eur CPU even care how igp is performing on it.

    Why no section about KabyLake running hot under load and when overclocked?

    I am getting ready to make a new build in a few months with my buddy and we are waiting for Ryzen and KabyLake reviews to come in to decide what platform to go with.

    I'm very interested to see if Intel cheaped out on the TIM under the heatspreader like with Haswell because I don't want to de-lid, and I like it running cool.

    Just surprised you didn't even mention it.

    :bang:

    ASUS already tested many samples.

    AVG will do 5ghz @ 1.29-1.35

    ES samples, right? That doesn't say much..

    Any Haswell review that was ES did great, but retail.. Well you know how that went.

    I got lucky with my early batch though, 1.27v at 4.7ghz is not bad :nerd:

    Nah they said they also tested retail CPUs.

    ES samples this late generally don't differ much from retail.

    Ok fair enough


    I still won't upgrade though, not until intel shows that x86refresh in 2019 or what's up with Zen+ then.


    Your 4.7ghz looks good too for a 6core :nerd:

    Yeah agreed.

    4.7 is pretty decent.

    I want to see a 6950x/10 core equivalent of kaby lake that will do 5ghz

    Until then I'll keep what i have.

    The igpu isn't interesting. An old 8800GTX will beat my i7 6700k igpu in csgo easily, especially when it comes to smoke effects.

    Intel is waiting for Zen. They will continue with minor refreshes and chipset features until AMD does something to compete.

    If they don't they will remove AMD from the maps and that will be bad for the economy.

    Gotta understand, this new series is mainly all about the new motherboard chipset features.

    Ah, it warms my cheap heart to read Hilbert's closing comment about no real changes since Sandy Bridge 2500/2600K. My old 2500K is still running at 4.1 Ghz and while M2/SSD and other recent innovations are sure tempting the overall cost of a new build is still a bit daunting. Was an Athlon 64 fan/OCer way back when so I'm very interested in what Zen brings to the table. Hopefully will be an interesting summer!

    And if you want to be really cheap, you can even install an NVMe drive with a PCIe card and lose practically nothing, even with your old system. Same stands for USB 3.1-B and the rest.
