1. Sandy Bridge i7 3960x extreme edition
2. Ivy Bridge i7 3770k
Both would run at 3.9 GHz.
Although Ivy bridge should out preform the sandy bridge processor, from the reviews I have read it actually is working the other way around. What ive heard most is.....
1.3960x has a better clock tolerance
2.3960x has a better benchmark(by alot)
3.3960x is made better/there is an issue with the quality of the parts(in the sautering or heat conducting) in the Ivy Bridges.
Before I jump on one or the other, I want to know what you guys think. Ivy Bridge is said to have a better performance compared to sandy bridge over all but I have not seen it from any of the bench tests done with results posted online. Again I know its over kill but Im getting a huge deal(almost half off) on which ever one I buy and well...I get to brag to my friends about my awesome computer .
