Thread: 6 Core CPU

  1. Default 6 Core CPU

    Sure, I'll take 6 or 7 as they are only $1100.00 EACH


    WTF

    Even the people that did ratings and repair/build boxes say it's not worth it...

    I think we all knew it wasnt worth it when they announced it
    The i7 980x does look like a fun toy though. of course unless you actually use progams that use multiple threads (I for the most part dont) all the i7s are worthless to you.

    I want a version of the 980x on the i5 line just for fun


    This thing is probably only ever worth the money if you make really, really, really amazing 3d films, and for some reason your making them 1600p

    I'd sooner spend it on a sig 210, colt python or a walther p88.

    Ditto

    well in a few years when the sbII is getting slow I plan to just update the cpu with the latest socket 1366 even if it is a xeon as my board supports them. There is no reason to spend that much now when it runs fine but one of the benefits of an early investment is that I can still upgrade years later and get a very fast updated computer without the cost of building an entire new one.

    Comparing your overclock to a stock chip isn't very genuine. If this chip were more like the old XP 3200+'s, which were notorious for limited OC'ing, you'd have a point, but given that all the reviews have pushed this thing quite a bit, you really don't. If you were to push the 980X in the same fashion you pushed your X4 955, it would proceed to stomp all over the 955.

    Yea like my 920 can almost equal my 970 when the 920 is oced but I do not run the 970 stock and can hit up to 4.5 using a multiplier oc only and at that it is already in another league.
