What do I categorize my processor as?
i5 3450, 16GIB 1600, HD7770 OC a tiny bit, 3TIB (Western digital, an a Samsung biatch @ 1.5TIB.)
All the otha is SB (sandy bridge and a AMD Fusion... Whats her name?.. E-300. She runs at 1.6 GHz!)
Heh, from Conroe to i7... That's a hell of a change... Seems to be the standard.
I went from an AMD AM2 Athlon 4200+ to an i7 3770k!
i7 2630QM, C2D E7400, a Celly 1.8GHz S478
Not any difference between the different generations of core i?
Well I just finished building a newish computer yesterday (My first build \0/)
and I decided to get an AMD A4-3200 (2.7 GHz Dual Core) - I am on a strict budget... I got a mobo, and processor, and ram for $203 (Thats including tax lol).
Yeah if you're on a tight budget AMD is quite good.
C2D, 2500K and an N330 (not on the list)
Yes there is, but if you already have a fully loaded first gen i7 system, not much point in rushing to 2nd or 3rd gen. They of course do have much better ocing headroom, and improved imcs, so there would be a benefit to upgrade. I'm waiting to buy a used sb-e system next so I can use all my ram + more. A 2600k/2700k would be even better than what I have, but I'd only be able to use 16gbs ram, so I'm waiting......
Core i7 3930K for my new build
Phenom II X4 960T in my girlfriend's rig
I5-2450 in a Dell XPS8300
2.2Ghz Core2Duo in Dell Inspiron 1545
Athlon64 X2 5600+ in an old HP I got for $50
Pentium 4 2.8Ghz in old Dell E510
AMD FX51 2.2Ghz @ 2.4Ghz in my first self-built rig
Kinda runs the gamut
my first rig was athlon x2 250, because i didnt find any phenom ii x6 black editions, so i moved to i7 2600k
FX 4100 this thread be old....
Intel Xeon E5520
Socket 370 Celeron 633MHz Coppermine
Socket 478 Pentium IV 1.4 Willamette (history, only the heat spreader is left)
Socket 478 Pentium IV 1.6 GHZ Northwood
Socket 478 Celeron 2.0 GHz Northwood
LGA 775 Pentium Dual-Core E2140 Allendale
LGA 775 Core2Quad Q6600 Conroe
LGA 775 Pentium Dual-Core E5200 Wolfdale-3M
2600k, 2-955 BE, 2-965 BE, 8200 quad, 8400 c2d, e6400, e6450, e5200, e7300 and an amd 435. Think thats it.
My processor wasn't on the list (FX 8150), but I have a Athlon II x3 in the spare parts bin, so that's the way I'll roll.
We need to distinguish between gens of i5 - you have sandy and lynnfield and now Ivy...
i52500 (nonK) - sandy.
Voted i7 -3820 @ 4.2 ... i love it
voted for intel i7...
I kno that amd also produces great processors these days..some with good cache memory....but imo... no processor can match the quality and durability of intel...
Some say that intel charges way high for almost same specs as other processor...but one thing i can be absolutely sure that when it comes to making processors intel is way ahead of amd....
Amd .... if it continues to release processors like phenom series... then may be in a year or two would surpass intel(cost and performance)
But these days CPU's cannot be compared like they were before, now you have to factor in the efficiency of the architecture, performance, cache etc..
You can compare CPU's in the same family using the GHz and Cores method but not when they come from 2 different manufacturers with completely different processor designs
i alread voted, but that was when i had a Core 2 Quad. Im now running a Core i5 2400 with 8GB HyperX @ 1600 XMP, a HD6870 and a 120GB HyperX SSD.
There should be a new poll when another gen comes out.
Still on my i7 920 from 2009
Now looking for a i7 980X
FX not on the list ?
