Re: Upgrading to CoffeeLake, or should I wait ?

My current gaming rig is based on a 3770K. My current fav game is Ghost Recon: Wildlands. While Wildlands maxes out my 3770K I still get 80 FPS @ 2560x1440 because I have a good GPU (GTX 1080). I'd focus less on the CPU and more on the GPU if gaming beyond 1920x1080: https://www.guru3d.com/articles...

Re: Upgrading to CoffeeLake, or should I wait ?

I'm not really concerned about AMD side of the things. They will probably improve Zen a bit but I really don't expect them to go that far.. like, 5 GHz 12 Core Ryzen. What really concerns me, is the probability of 8 core coffeelakes and their probable need of 390 chipset. My previous experience with...

Re: Upgrading to CoffeeLake, or should I wait ?

Mainboards shows their true nature under heavy loads and overclocking pressure. When you set some higher voltage and keep heavy load on CPU, those extra VRM's on the board starts to do their job. Some does well; even on extreme conditions, mobo keeps the voltage and the current as steady as possible...

Re: Upgrading to CoffeeLake, or should I wait ?

Intel is apparently introducing Z390 and mainstream 8C/16T processors next year sometime. Also Ryzen 2000 series is expected to hit around February-ish, which may have an effect on the prices of Coffee Lake as it stands. I recently bought an I3-8350K and relatively low-cost Asrock Z370 motherboard ...

Upgrading to CoffeeLake, or should I wait ?

Hello, I'm one of those guys who still uses SandyBridge based system. I'm actually lucky to have a system that lasted 5+ years and not that lucky because I couldn't afford a 2600k back then and settled with a 2500k. My sample was quite happy on 4.5k GHz with 60ish temps under load (degree celcius). ...

That's pretty neat that you have a piece of family history. If you plan to shoot it, I would have a gunsmith check the headspace first.
