Difference between ivy bridge sandy bridge and normal.

Difference between ivy bridge sandy bridge and normal.

what are the difference of a Sandy bridge, Ivy Bridge, and no bridge at all...

by the way is it true that a i5 2500k is almost like a i7 920 processor?

  1. The 2500k is completely different than the 920!

    i5-2500k
    Sandybridge architecture
    4 cores/4 threads

    i7-920
    Bloomfield Architecutre
    4core/ 8threads

    Ivybridge is essentially the same as Sandybridge, but features slightly faster cores, better integrated graphics, less power consumption, and better on board graphics. It also has pcie 3.0 natively supported, however this does not do anything for current graphics cards. Unfortuenatly ivybridge runs much hotter than sandybridge, and offers only 3-5% overall performance increase.

    BTW if you have the 920 then you should keep it and overclock! The 2500k won't outperform the 920 in multi-threaded applications.
  2. ok so you are saying that if i buy a i5 2500k sandy bridge is better than a i720 jsut to make it more clear. yes or no.

    and thank you for the answer.
  3. Depends on what you are doing. However, do you already have the i7-920?

    planing on it..

    i just dont want to overspend for a pc but still get a good one.
  5. Wait, so do you have an i7-920? If not, then get the 2500k! Or even the sandybridge i7's. But if you do, then overclock the 920.
  6. now since the ivy bridge is out go with i5-3570k.
    only people with a i5-2500k shouldnt upgrade to the ive bridge, the upgrade isnt worth the cost, but anything under i5-2500k its well worth to upgrade to the i5-3570k if your building a new rig or upgrading cpu

    3570k offers little improvement, plus it runs much hotter when overclocked, which I assume juniiflow is going to be doing :sol:

    i think a am buy this. unless there is a cheaper way to build this :]
  10. Probably not, however their board probably doesn't let you overclock, and their power supply is low quality. If you want to do any real gaming with good frame rates, you will be upgrading the graphics card.

    BTW Do you have a microcenter nearby?

    your right only in a sense. if hes going to be buying a new cpu he should go with the 3570k. yes it runs hotter, but he doesnt have to oc it as far as the 2500k to get same performance. so a 3570k less clocked will run virtually same heat as higher clocked 2500k and he'll get same performance. with a nice backup gpu on board for a few days if his aftermarket gpu ever craps out
  13. If you believe him over me Junii, just look up any review and look at the final thoughts/conclusion. they will tell you if you already got a 2500k dont bother getting the 3570k, but if your not running a 2500k and your going to upgrade go with the 3570k over the 2500k

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883227387 so is that a good choice?
  15. i build my own pc's. can be a bit more custimized that way, but if ur going to buy a built one, id say your first pick was better. for the little extra price u get a better gpu and a tad more cpu. less storage but sata 3 over sata 2, also looks like no usb 3.0 ports on the cheaper kit. only 16gb max memory support on cheaper kit vs the 32 gb max memory support on the $800 kit. yes, certainly the link below vs the last link you sent

  16. i just upgraded my rig & spent $720 (not counting the $60 rebate money i'll be getting back) but i didnt get a new mouse, keyboard, power supply, Gpu or opt drive. but i have more and a bit better memory and i also bought a ssd for the os and my mb is better. but that comp kit i linked above is very nicely priced. what games you plan to play?

    i think this si my choice even tough i dont want no keyboard and mouse
  18. tell you what, having a extra mouse & keyboard around is nice. i have a extra of each just as a back up. so if for any reason my main 1's go out i dont go out and buy w/e that might work but not really what i want. i can use the back-ups for a few days till what i really want arrives.

    well that setup seems better i think.
  20. the 2600k is just a tad better than the 3570k, and the mother board is nicer,but i dont like the power supply, nor the gpu that comes with it. id still go with the link i gave over that last link u gave. that power supply couldnt handle a gpu upgrade very well, so if u ever upgraded ur gpu ud need to upgrade that as well. the small quality difference gain from mb and cpu isnt worth the quality loss of the gpu & power supply
  21. now there could be better kits out there, im just looking thru the links uve provided.
