Desktop Ivy Bridge. Intel Core i7-3770K and Core i5-3570K Processors Review
Also, the improved IGP is going to be good for an average notebook users
In other words, they hit it out of the park with a grand slam last time, on mid range, and destroyed amd. This is just more icing on the cake and more bottles of champagne for the current ongoing party and celebration.
AMD was blocked at the guest entrance years ago, and still isn't dressed properly and looks like crap.
The winners wanted another giant party and they got it.
Go commiserate with your fail sisters in some amd depression and lies vortex, won't you ?
most people who own 2600Ks have overclocked them
1) That they don't really understand Intel's Tick-Tock strategy.
2) They assumed it would have tremendous overclocking potential because of the new 3D transistor @ 22nm node. However, that proved to be an incorrect assumption.
That's all there is to it. If anything, they should be happy that they can spent another 12 months on SB and start saving up for Haswell.
Further, IVB has been designed to maximize power efficiency and reduce current for mobile computing. Intel now sells far more laptop than desktop chips.
For people who want a powerhouse desktop CPU, and upgrade rationally without caring about breaking world records or having epeen, Haswell was always the only reasonable upgrade path from SB. This was pretty much known by most of us when we bought SB 16 months ago.
Well, In my case Not EveryBody bought an Intel or AMD, Overclock their processor.
So far its the First Intel Processor Using 3D. There will be more improvement in the next refinement.
With 2500K for instance, crank the multiplier from 33 to 44, turn off the EIST and related auto down clocking, and boot up at the 6 second quarter mile speed AND STAY THERE FOREVER IF YOU LIKE !
This is a top end winning race vehicle that never needs and engine rebuild and doesn't ever have to take a pit stop, and you don't have to spend dime one, and only ten seconds once in your life to do it with the stock SUPERCHARGED.
There is a fair, accurate, and uncontested description of reality.
What i see Ivy Bridge is a Good Choice in a Normal and Heavy Operation. Power Consumption is Lower Compare to Sandy Bridge.
Lets see if Intel Will Standout Against AMD upcoming Processor the Trinity.
Given the new issues with removing heat from an Ivy Bridge CPU, I'd be VERY interested in an Xbit labs re-review of the best air coolers on IB. I'll be shopping for one soon, and rely on your advice. [Personally, I'm interested only in single-fan coolers, but price isn't so important.]
at Stock Vs 4GHz Vs 4.5GHz in a lot of benchmarks
After Page 7 there are many many charts:
As far as Ivy Bridge goes the rumors of heat are only going to be dispelled through education. When overclocking Ivy what is primarily required in controlling the heat is understanding why a die shrink creates more heat? Basically it comes down too reducing the voltage for a given amount of frequency that you would normally achieve from a Sandy Bridge equivalent to retain the same stability. Of course one must have a good chip and a motherboard that allows you to make the necessary adjustments worth while. I would also stress that having an efficient cooling system will go a long way keeping you comfortably over 5 Ghz 24/7. No matter what more is said about it Ivy is a step up from Sandy frequency to frequency. To those willing to take that step they will reap the reward. What is it going to cost? Well that is up to you.
that is INCORRECT. Based on a chat I had with Intel support, the i7-3770 is not and never will be compatible with the Q67 chipset, for example. It is best to refer your readers to the Intel compatibility page for the ivy bridge processors (e.g. see http://ark.intel.com/prod...-(8M-Cache-up-to-3_90-GHz)) if they're thinking of buying one of these processors.
OC'ing SB or IB stops at or below the sweet spot of 4600-4400 for general run of the mill users, so IB is definitely a fine buy with the vastly improved IGP that trades games in single player mode before multiplayer mode hammers the amd apu, a shocking development.
Intel did a fine job on the HD4000, and for all the usual users, the 4600 spot before voltage or temps start to accelerate is just fine, most won't want run above that, so for two minutes of thrill time who cares, the freak OC'ers can still get their jollies.
IB is a definite large success, and unless you plan on sustaining a gigantic 24/7/365 OC and have a huge discrete video card to go along with that, on the unstable bleeding edge, IB's added heat on high OC is meaningless, PERIOD.
Obviously a sane user would choose IB with zero regrets and zero hesitation - a better chip with a much improved grpahics on a newer tech board for the same price.
It doesn't take a rocket scientist to cause confusion, it takes a raging gaggle of non owning end users who don't use an extreme 24/7/365 overclock anyway to whine and moan and complain and amd fan boy out and stretch their twisted minds babbling insanities that matter for only a very few freaks of the world with deep pockets and deeply expensive OC hardware all around.
IB did a smash up good job with their new HD4000 graphics increase, and OC's well to 4,600 with no ill effects compared to SB.
Get over it people. You aren't using a 24/7/365 massive OC on the bleeding edge of instability, especially if you are using a red amd card that already has inbuilt stability issues too.
It's amazing to me how out of control the thinking gets, and how insane it all sounds when back on earth, the choice is attained is absolutely clear, very, very easily reached.
