Building new PC

#1Gawl9427Posted 8/17/2013 8:58:03 PM
Probably going Intel this time around. I'm not going to be building it anytime soon, but within the next 6 months or so. I've been out of the loop CPU wise. Anything new and exciting coming out that I should be aware of or is there something now that's amazing I should he keeping an eye on?

Is Haswell a lot better than Ivy?

Nope. Not "a lot" at all, but roughly 5%-10%. Most Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge users are not updating for obvious reasons. Some are upgrading. You might as well go with Haswell since 1155 is dead.

Haswell is to IB what IB is to SB in terms of performance improvements.
