Is this currently the best most bad a** chip available for a socket 1155 Ivy Bridge mobo?Intel Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridge 3.5GHz
Do you think they will come out with anything better or is that the end of the line now since the next chipset is coming soon?
Maybe I should be a little more specific. I'm talking in regards to gaming.
I'm looking for the last word in socket 1155, Ivy bridge processors.
Is the i7-3770K the best one out now?
Also, is there likely to be anything better coming or is this the end of the road for this chipset?
Ok in socket 1155 for gaming I would have to say that the Intel® Core™ i5-3570K is the better gaming processors since so few games will use more than 4 threads. For this reason the Intel Core i5-3570K can clock up to the same clock speed and does have hyper-threading that you won't be using.
Now as to the question of releasing a new socket 1155 processor? I havent seen anything in the roadmaps but we don't always release future products on the roadmaps. I would think that if we were going to release a new socket 1155 Intel Core i5 or Intel Core i7 we would have done it before the Christmas buying season was in force; just like we did with the Intel Core i7-3970X Extreme Edition.
