Core i7-990X Extreme Edition vs. Core i7-2600K
Amazing review, very complete and detailed!!
Greetings from Colombia!!
Intel just wants 1366 to go away it seems.
Waiting for 2800K and 2900K....
When you work in a studio you need fanless noiseless gear and that typically goes with low power consumption (lower count of fans -if any-), which is fairly the same you require when going on tour (and choose a low power matx portable system) And that is significantly achieved with Sandybridge, and obviously Ivybridge.
By the way... Sandybridge tech signals the first time an important segment of sound engineers, musicians, etc are considering the use of notebooks on professional sound activities... excepting the fact that desktops is yet the almost-only way to plug our expensive, dedicated pro soundcards.
Thus, if the remaining question of the processing advantages of 2600k with fully speced two channels v/s LGA-1366 with three channels of RAM is cleared, then I'll have to decide on a 2600K based system or alternatively wait almost a year for the LGA2011... plus Intel expected Ivy prices.
For first time I am considering LGA1155 !!!
If you purchase a 300 dollar cpu and get 10 frames per second less in a game I'm wagering that 95% of the users wouldn't notice that loss of 10 FPS.
That 600 bucks you saved is better off spent on an SSD and video card.
Saved me A LOT of aggravation for a long time to come as I was jsut about ready to purchase a new workstation (dual LGA-1366's).
Now I'll make do for a bit and wait for their replacement's the Xeon Xeon E5-2600/Sandy Bridge-EP/Socket R.
Thanks Xbit. Well done.
This is what keeps me coming back to Xbit.
How would a higher gfx load skew the outcome?
