Default Haswell is here!

The NDA is lifted and quite a few interesting reviews are up:

Desktop: http://www.anandtech.com/show/7003/t...i54560k-tested

Iris Pro 5200 Mobile GPU: http://www.anandtech.com/show/6993/i...74950hq-tested

Overclocking: http://www.hardocp.com/article/2013/...w#.UapR2ZXNr8s

I think it looks quite good overall. As the focus was clearly on mobile products, Haswell will be very important for upcoming notebooks. High End products like the Retina MacBook Pros should use Iris Pro 5200 and that will be a major improvement over the current generation when running without the dedicated GPU on the go. Overall CPU performance will probably be similar to current notebooks in day-to-day usage but the battery life should be fantastic! With WWDC just a few days away, I'm really looking forward to the new Mac line-up now

On the desktop side it's more like a small improvement. The Z87 chipset with more native USB 3.0 and SATA 3.0 ports is probably the most important change.

Anyone here looking to upgrade?

I will go haswell later this year. Have a friend who wants to buy my ivy cpu and motherboard. He wants to upgrade from a x58 motherboard and core i7 920 2.66ghz cpu. Want to talk about bottlenecks, he's using a gtx 670 with that setup!

He could also OC the CPU and be done with it. I don't see a 920 at 4GHz as a bottleneck in real world gaming scenarios.

I'm very tempted to upgrade just because of the SATA ports. But I doubt I'll see much gain in iRacing. I'm extremely GPU bound anyway.

Yeah I'll also wait another year. The next chipset generation should support SATA Express so with that I'm able to skip SATA 3 SSDs completely

CPU performance itself has not been an issue for many years now. Curious to see what Haswell solutions Apple will show tomorrow

I kept my I7-920 at 4.2gigs from day one,for over 4 years,but with a better CPU cooler.IF you waited this long and something new is coming out in a year ,I would just overclock the hell out of it and get all the power you can get from it ,because if you are running stock at 2.66gig then you should have quiet a bit of head room if your pC has the voltage and overclocking tools.It should do 3.8gig to 4.6gigs.

Default Re: Haswell is here!

After the somewhat lackluster Ivy Bridge E reviews I decided to simply get a Haswell system.
I had the itch to upgrade and the Z87 is the much more attractive platform than the old X79. Since I don't use SLI anymore, X79 has zero advantages for me.

CPU performance and cores are not that important either, a little 4770K will do just fine. But I'm definitely looking forward to some long overdue SATA 3 SSD RAID 0 fun, with TRIM

Funny thing is, this whole upgrade costs about what I used to pay for the CPU alone Kinda glad those times are gone...

Hey all. It been awhile since I last posted been busy with work etc. Anyways just built up a new rig. Went a i7 4770k, Maximus vi extreme etc. see sig for more details. I will post some pics soon!
Had a couple of issues when building it, the back plate for the H100i was loose so had to use some rubber washers between the plate and the mobo, worked a treat. Luckily I had some lying around that came with my old 650d case. Also had some issues with USB keyboard and mouse randomly not being detected, only a fully power off and on would resolve the issue. Anyways a BIOS flash to 0804 fixed the issue!

I'm going to milk my current system a little longer and wait for the 14nm refresh 'Broadwell'. I've always rushed into buying the 'Tock' CPU generations so gonna go with a 'Tick' refresh for a change. Other than that a Haswell would be a viable upgrade from my current system.

Still using a i7 920 @ 4ghz right now btw.....
