    Well I will be waiting instead of upgrading now. Besides, I need to study for classes ha. Will be looking to get a 3570k or 3770k depending on budget and needs then.

    New boards too. Sweet.

    http://lenzfire.com/2012/01/ivy-brid...l-8-2012-2012/

    Intel’s next generation processor, code named as Ivy Bridge is expected to release by April 8 2012. Ivy Bridge is made with 22nm technology and 3D Tri-Gate transistors, integrated with DirectX11 and LGA 1155 support.




    Sorry if double post, I didn't see a similar thread. If so, call me blind.

    I think I'll swap mine for a 3770k probably since it's the same socket and all.

    Christ, the price jump from the 3770 to the 3770k is quite something considering that all you get from it is 0.1GHz base clock and unlocked multipliers. Looks suspiciously like they're taking advantage of their market dominance

    I like to consider the cost difference over the life of the product. it's like a 35-40 dollar difference. spread over many months or years. It's like a tacobell taco per month.

    Still only 4 physical cores? Come on intel release some 8-6 core modules like amd has, my vm's need it

    The 4+ cores is for Xeon and the E series. If you want 6-8 cores go Xeon based on SB-E or IB-E

    Not cost effective, I can get a 16 core CPU from amd at the price of a 6 core with a Xeon. Oh well, stickin with amd for a bit longer

    Point is, they have them, I didn't realize you were concerned about cost. The current line up are already very fast for the majority of their user base. If you need more cores, they are available, just not in the mainstream line up.

    Not defending lack of cores as I'd love an octocore IV-E for like 400bucks.

    Lots of the cores in AMD products are only half-cores or something. They will share resources and are more like hyperthreads than actual cores.

    Yeah this would be for my dev clusters, my production shit is mostly 80/20 amd/intel, and those come from dell at a better price

    Edited:

    Bulldozers run at 1FPU per 2 cores thus only 4 cores can be addressed at any single time, while it is better to have a physical core process data then a HT the FPU bottlenecks it

    the best $200~ cpu doesn't really look all that much better than my 2500k

    i mean its like a whopping 100 mhz better

    Edited:

    oh fuck i forgot about the 3d transistors and the 22nm thing


    fuck i want the new chip

    Thats what I was saying at first too, especially since current i5 and i7 prices will drop which would made me think "Why even get the new ivy bridge?" Till I saw the 3d transistors and 22nm architecture.

    Going from a 65nm Q6600 to a 22nm will be mind blowing.

    Can't wait to upgrade from my Phenom 9600 2.3GHz

    I'm going to start saving and go all out

    It might sound excessive but I'm thinking a i7 3770-K, 24 gb RAM, and a motherboard should only run me ~$650

    Rumors said Intel could have made the chips alot more aggressive on it's base clocks, but Intel decided not to ( since it most of its chips pull away from AMD's latest ) and just rather focus on power efficiency and new technologies.

    Going from a 65nm to a 32nm processor is already mind blowing enough.

    I can't imagine what the 3D tri-gate transistors will be like though, hell, if the numbers are as good as the shrink to 28NM for GPU's I can't imagine what it'll be like on CPU's

    What kind of change does 22nm and 3D transistors actually do, assuming the GHz stays the same between this and a standard 65nm chip today?

    Why?
    wikipedia posted:
    AMD says that this 2nd-generation FX-series processor, code-named Piledriver, would offer up to 20% to 30% better performance increase under digital media workloads.
    So 20%-30% faster if the claims are indeed correct. I'll assume they are despite the growing pile of not so accurate claims from AMD's PR department.

    Now the estimates for Ivy Bridge
    wikipedia posted:
    Intel's performance targets (compared to Sandy Bridge):
    Up to 20% increase in CPU performance.
    Up to 30% increase in integrated GPU performance.
    So 20% increase in performance over Sandy Bridge. Now because these are percentage values they are based upon the original CPU performance values. Increasing Bulldozer performance by 30% will not make it faster than Sandy Bridge performance increased by 20%.

    How will the integrated GPU perform compared to a GeForce 8800?

    Edited:

    Intel is apparently releasing a new LGA 2011 processor too, and it's cheaper than the 3770k. Are there any disadvantages?

    Can't wait. Still on a Q6600. I'll probably move to the 3570k. Already got my RAM.
