4790k vs 5th gen Intel Core i7

I am choosing a CPU for my new build but should I wait for Broadwell or just go with the haswell CPU??

Btw, will the MSI Z97 GAMING 5 be broadwell ready??

    Yes, that board will be compatible with Broadwell. We don't have benchmarks of the 5770K yet, so I don't have an idea, but I think that if you can wait you should.

    Yeah, I will wait because I won't get all the parts before early 2015 anyways... Thanks :D

    Alright, if you wait, make sure to get the Z97 DDR4 boards that will come, DDR4 is much better :)

    When is that coming??
  5. DDR4 is nothing special.

    Finally, as far as DDR4 is concerned, the chips will top out DDR4-2133 and will only officially support DDR3-1600. If that’s true, it implies Intel is fudging configurations a bit to compensate for DDR4-2133′s higher latency — at the same clock speed, DDR3 is faster than DDR4 thanks to its intrinsically lower latency. DDR4 won’t pull ahead from DDR3 until it hits at least DDR4-2700 and I wouldn’t expect to see significant improvement until DDR4-3200.
    AVX3 should provide significant acceleration — AVX2 gave Intel chips a hefty kick over standard AVX — but its aimed at the same HPC markets where Xeon Phi has done well. The impact on consumer software may be minimal, at least in the near term.


  6. Alright, if you wait, make sure to get the Z97 DDR4 boards that will come, DDR4 is much better :)

    in what way?
  7. It's not any better hardly a leap forward....
