      So yeah mostly to fiddle with no real need for that I barely use 6 cores often. But till the market is where it should be and x79 processors are 400 or less I'm not buying one with Ryzen around corner...the 4960 should be like 200 bucks and the 8 core maybe 500...no reason in proper market they'd be worth more.

      also from every thread I read about it it's a really high bin that overclocks wonderfully...and yeah mostly the latter I have no real practical use for 8 cores atm but at the right price why get a 6 core if I can get an 8 core that runs faster and with less voltage?

        Yeah, so its overclockable through multiplicator or? That would be awesome.

      Yeah, I really can't justify 400-1000 dollars for "new" processor for my x79 if Ryzen undercuts all that in next month/s hopefully sooner than later. So I want to stay with x79 with so much invested and tired of swapping in and out of case but want that e5 1680 v2 8 core for it to nosedive in price first.

        It's a 8 core for X79 LGA 2011 right? Would you buy it for productive reasons or just to fiddle around with it?

      Sorry missed your last post, till this I never tried posting on someone's page like this, one thing I NEVER did in like 10 years of being here lol. Yeah exactly right I've been arguing with morons in forums of late and 6-7 years is what I peg as reasonable number of years very little progress has been made considering the technology age we live in.

        Yep, SB still goes strong especially a 6 core.

      Let's face it, AMD has called in sick the last almost whole decade and Intel has just dominated while AMD just had to sell a "good enough" cheap alternative for those of us who wanted a meh alternative. So I'm waiting till market reacts accordingly to whatever AMD does and maybe I can get a good deal on the older parts.

        Well since FX was released, 2011? That's 6-7 years. But still a long long time. You'll stay on the X79 platform or upgrade to something new?

      You aren't the only one waiting for Zen/Vega! Considering everyone on this forum that is understated...so tired of AMD sucking for years with CPUs and only relevant with Nvidia by pricing but no high performance equivalence whatsoever.
      1. Kanan says thanks.

        Yeah, it was a big move from me going back to Intel over 3 years ago because there was no good AMD cpu to replace my Phenom II (I had AMD cpus for over 12 years by that time, and my last Intel was a Pentium 166 MMX back then) that wasn't up to the game anymore. I'm still not a big fan of Intel but they sure do a good job.
