I own the i7 920, which I can sell for about $225. The i7 950 Bloomfield is about $300. Is the performance gain worth the effort and price? I'm assuming I can pop the 950 right onto my X58 mobo and go on with life...
Thanks in advance.
Just set your BCLK setting on your 920 a bit higher (160 for example) and there is no performance gain whatsoever. I would not take the trouble or spend the money.
Aye, Captain. Thanks, you just saved me $75.
