    Feel bad for AMD, but looks good for the old x58 systems come dx12 and more parallell com between system and api+3d engine.

    I am surprised how much lower the IPC AMD have / clock compared to even 6 year old Westmere cpus.


    When comparing it to the X5960, I think the result is quite surprising. Yes yes it is STOCK but still. This is a 2014 CPU at 600£ going up against at 60£ from 2010 :)

    /edit

    For the ones looking at the Vcore.

    CPU idles at 28 Celsius and loaded under IBT with 95% ram used (11gb) it tops out at 61 Celsius on the hottest core, with Tjmax at 87 Celsius iirc.

    Your profile says 4.5ghz :p but yeah great CPUs and great upgrades for x58, must try that benchmark myself, didn't realise there was a comparison feature

    It does 4.7 at 1.446 volts but I felt it was a bit much :)

    And your right I took it down from 4.55 since it needed 1.43, seem every 100 mhz is 80mv up once above 4 ghz.

    Still going strong. I can get 4.5 out of mine at stock volts (1.375), but the thermals get a bit out of hand, really, especially with HT on. Now I run at 4 GHz undervolted to 1.25 ish.

    Yah those 980x are quite a bit hotter from what I heard. But the unlocked multi should be handy IF you can cool the cpu enough to start reaching those high clocks using the multi.

    I tested a run at 4.708k ghz and single thread went up to 1687 and multi 10823, so I was up at same performance you get out of a 5930k and even beating it slightly.

    But thats on 1.456 volts which is quite high for a 24/7 setting when the cpu according to Intel has a max vcore of 1.35V :)

    /edit

    Kinda crazy though..

    From stock 2.67 ghz to 4.708 ghz thats just crazy. 176% OC :)

    It's ACTUALLY a W3680, not a 980X, but effectively the same chip otherwise. Still has the unlocked turbo multi, which is nice, and I can quite readily get the RAM running at 2133.

    Yep, those X56xx are still a helluva nice chips. Have one X5675 at other rig running for years @ 4.6GHz since day one with HT on below custom WC, never bothered to go faster than 4.6. Together with Celeron 300A, few cherry picked C2Q Q6600, one fanastic i7-920 C0 capable for 4.2 HT, few i7-920 D0 and of course i7-2600K these X56xx are my favorite OC chips. Sadly my last one favorite OC'er from red team was K7 Athlon XP 2500+ Barton core :(

    Liar, my daughter is running at her HTPC one fantastic AMD K10 Sempron 140 unlocked to 2-core and OC'ed to 3.9GHz. Pretty nice speed bump for single core CPU running at stock 2.7GHz if you ask me :)

    Not for nothing the general upgrade path of i7 users on the X58 platform were Xeons, was advised to me too before I built my new rig. Kick ass chips. :D

    Just posted a new thread about results with my X5675. I'm definitely upset I didn't find out about these Xeons sooner!

    x58 system is probably the system that live and stay relevant that longest, however after 7 years of owning this platform the time have come for me to say goodbye and move on to 6700K I was really tired by the slow single thread performance, but still very powerful overall even for today's standards.
