i7 4930k vs i7 4770k vs Haswell E

So normal question everyone ask, Ivy vs Haswell?
Right now i do gaming/streaming/recording/rendering and my FX 8350 just seems to not have enough juice somedays. So im stuck on trying to decide.. i really want the i7 4930k for its 6 cores and does it beat the i7 4770k is mostly everything that i plan on doing? If so.. should i play the waiting game and see what Haswell E has to offer? I hear that it wont be out till around Sept though and that's kinda along time for me.

More about 4930k 4770k haswell
  1. Haswell-e is going to be an 8c/16t, but wont be avaible till q3 2014.

    I myself have streamed with the 4770k without any problems. It all depend on how much you will pay for it.
    You could always consider a new gpu.
    nVidia do have shadowplay
  2. Performance hasswell-e > ivy-e > haswell.
    You should see around 20-35% from ivy-e to haswell-e, and around the same from haswell to ivy-e
  3. I have the FX 8350 and I personally am waiting/saving up until Haswell-E/DDR4 comes out. I don't think it is worth the upgrade right now, especially with those massive changes just around the corner!

    I just bought 2 AMD Sapphire 280x Toxics a month ago lol
  5. A cheaper option could be a Xeon 1230v2/3 if you're not interested in overclocking. It will provide almost the same performance of an i7 4770 but is priced closed to that of the i5s.
  6. Sweet, then you get the joy of mantle.

    From what I heard, the prices are the same as the Ivy E and extreme, The 8 core will be $1k+ and the 6 Core will be $600? What will be the pricing of the DDR4 Ram though...that might hurt the wallet, and how long will it be till you start seeing motherboards to supports these.

    ya Im really excited for that...to bad its taking its sweet time to hit bf4
  9. Ddr4 isb't something we would see in before q4 of 2014 or even q1 in 2015.
    Because you can get highend ddr3 with the same speed, you would need new mobo and cpu and it will be to expensive, exactly the same as when ddr3 came out.

    Well Haswell-E is supposed to support DDR4 off the bat, and since DDR3 and DDR4 aren't socket compatible then you can definitely expect DDR4 to be out the same time. There is already DDR4 in servers and other uses, just not the everyday consumer.
  11. A new mother board may be in the equation as well, considering The i7 4770k has an LGA1150 socket and the i7 4930k has an LGA2011 socket.
    They are not compatible. You can go from i5 to i7 4770k on many motherboards but not to an i7 4930k. Cheers.
