Intel launches the Core i7-2700K

Quote:
Not entirely unexpected, Intel has launched its Core i7-2700K CPU today with little fanfare as is typical for when the company puts out an incremental upgrade. Three of Intel's other desktop CPU's have been given a price cut by between 13 and 15 percent which is a pretty generous discount, although none of these models are likely to get anyone excited.

And here is a link to an Intel Compare between the new i7-2700k and its predecessor, the i7-2600k. To be honest, it doesn't look like all that much of an improvement. Apart from the clock and turbo speed, it looks exactly the same.

I don't know why they spend money releasing a CPU with a 100MHz difference from the CPU right below. Meh.

The new 2700K are just "hand picked" 2600K. Basicly they will be more stable over 5.0 GHz.

Standard practice from intel to release a 'new' version to clear excess stock quicker in time for a new revision.

Because obsessive compulsive computer enthusiasts will want that extra 100Mhz.

That costs another $50 or so bucks which equals only 50 cents for each extra Mhz.

For extreme OCers who want to show the highest benchmark numbers on the P67/Z68 platform, that cherry picked 100Mhz bump could mean everything.
Its just that extra bit to break a record. Even though it doesnt seem like much.


Beyond that, I can't see it having that much more value over the 2600k (at current prices of a $50 or so premium) for most of us. Gamers or even hobby OCers.

If it was as predicted, $15 more, then yes, Id say it was worth it if building a new P67/Z68 from the ground up.

Bingo...and I'm so damn glad I am not one of these people.

I like fast computers....but I don't live by benchmarks. I judge my performance by everyday things that I do. If those things become painfully slow or could be improved dramatically, it's time to upgrade. If the upgrade only makes a 5-10% improvement, unless it's a job that takes hours, it's just not enough to justify the cost and effort involved.

I don't see enough difference between the two to be creating another number, (2600/2700).
