i can't find anything solid when i looked it up on google. Every forum i saw was BEFORE the release of ivy i3's and they are simply speculating but even then they say it is 10% faster.
Anyways,i can sell my current i3 2100 which i bought barely 2 months ago for about 106 US$ and get an i3 322- @3.3Ghz for about 129$. The question is,should i?
Previously i had an Asrock Extreme 4 gen motherboard and it had a few Pci 3.0 slots and everywhere i read it said that all supported GPU like 7770 will give twice the performance on 3.0 slot IF the processor was Ivy.
Im always looking to experiment with these things,ive tried countless GPUs,CPU's and motherboards in hope's to find that perfect build which will cost the LEAST for a new PC gamer and give maximum performance . I think this might just be it. Even with the 2100 it never "bottleneck'ed" my system,it was always my GTX 460 which was lacking.
Anyways need your opinion,and would LOVE to hear from someone who has actually had experience with both or at least the i3-3220 processor.
My current system is as mentioned in my profile,what im hoping to build is:
Any motherboard good for Ivy bridge processors
8GB (2x4GB) Crosair XMS3 DDR3 1600Fsb Ram
either 7750 or 7770 depending on the availability and budget left
What i hope to achieve is about 40% increase in performance OVERALL because the processor is faster as it is,GPU will run at much higher speeds,Rams will also run at 1600Fsb on stock etc and everything is for ivy i.e new tech ya know.
