Agreed, I guess we've hit the "fast enough" point with PCs where the leading IHVs feel they no longer need to significantly innovate with each new iteration. Its pretty sad to say that as a lifelong PC enthusiast....most of the innovation seems to be taking place in the phone/handheld/tablet market and HDTV markets nowadays. Shouldn't be too much of a surprise though, both Nvidia and Intel have well-positioned themselves in that respect for the next-generation of revenue drivers (SoCs).

The 3770k is a great CPU for casual users, but even serious OC'ers can squeeze a lot of performance out of it. Particularly, the IGP is a nice improvement over SB and should satisfy any casual gamer that doesn't want to spring for a dedicated card. I'm not sure why so many enthusiasts hyped Ivy up so much. It was never meant to be a substantial upgrade from SB.

Enthusiasts wanting the absolute best performance should be looking at X79 and SB-E.

I can't speak for other enthusiasts, but I was expecting more in terms of overclocking headroom and lower power draw from the 22nm process and tri-gate transistors. Most of what I've seen from reviews so far seem to indicate IVB doesn't OC much higher than SB and tends to run hotter and draw more power also.

I already knew we weren't going to get much in terms of architectural improvements or increased # of cores from IVB, as the extra transistor budget was going to the IGP on the LGA1155 parts. Now that we've seen how little improvement there was from SB to IVB, I don't think there's much to look forward to now moving from SB-E to IVB-E either.

As for X79/SB-E being the answer for enthusiasts, I'm not so sure about that after seeing the i7-3820 reviews. I really thought that CPU would be the one to get but if you look around, you'll see it actually consistently falls behind even the i7-2700K (3.5GHz) even though the i7-3820K is clocked at 3.6GHz with more L3 cache as well.

Yeah, the 3820 isn't the way to go for most enthusiasts. It's not a bad choice by any means, it's just limited by the fact that it's only partially unlocked. CPU straps have to be used to OC this CPU, so it won't typically OC as well as a K series model.

That said, springing for the 3930k and a nice X79 MOBO will net one quite a bit more performance when compared a P67/Z68 board with a 2500k/2600k. It's definitely a worthy upgrade, especially considering that all those extra PCIe 3.0 lanes may come in handy for multi-GPU setups utilizing future GPU's.

I'll admit that X79 really needs a budget K series SB-E CPU. I guess we'll have to wait and see if IB-E makes that happen.

depends on what you are moving from?
it definitely can compete against a 3930k

getting 4.8 OC should be relatively easy - and it draws less power

haswell is 2014... a long wait

From what I've seen the 3770 needs a ton of voltage to hit those higher clocks. I still think it's a great CPU, but I'd rather have the 3930k for the extra cores, not to mention the more robust X79 platform. In multi-threaded applications the 3930k will substantially outperform 3770, assuming both are OC'ed to their average maximum clocks.

But it runs hotter. This just solidified my upgrade to SB-E instead of possibly waiting for Ivy-E. The slight improvement isn't worth the ridiculous temps, unless they fix that by the time Ivy-E is released, I'll be happy as a clam in about 30 days or so with my i7 3930k /wink.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=';)' />
