Windows 7: i7 2600k or 2700k?

im looking into the ivybridge 3700k. i thought it might be a good step up from a 2600k, but am realy curious if its supposed to be any better than the 2600k. allot of people are saying its not that different, others say that it is going to be much more powerful. despite this i have yet to see a full spec comparison to the 2600k, or a benchmark from reviewers who have gotten an early taste. if anyone can clarify for me if its worth waiting for and spending the extra money id appreciate it.


most people say its really baout bragging rights, but not one person stated its overclocking abilities.
so that really is the question, which is going to overclock better? on paper it would be the 2700k, but which is it in reality?

I believe that the CPUs are still covered by NDAs (non disclsure agreements).

In other words, those who know, can't say. Those who say, can't know.

You are confusing readers.

The title of your thread is 2600k or 2700k.

Then in the first sentence you mention Ivy Bridge.

The 2600k and 2700k are not Ivy Bridge.

Maybe you should clarify what you mean?

The article would have been slightly better if the 3770k was compared to the 2700k rather than the 2600k. The 2700k has the same clock as the 3770k (3.5 GHz), while the 2600k is a bit lower (3.4 GHz).

I'd be a little reluctant to base a purchase on thsi "preview".

which i guess brings me to my other question than, how different are the 2600ks and the 2700ks? this time i really do me 2700k! lol. some people say bragging rights is the only dif, but no one talks about the OCability or physically which one is better, its a 5 dollar difference for an extra GH... somthings not right about their statment
