2012 called and wants its stupid CPUs back
Which 2012 $100 cpu do u have that beats this?

How about which $300 2012 cpu do u have that beats this ?

This whole build would crush and cost less than any single cpu u likely have from 2012

Lemme guess, u own a slower and/or more expensive ryzen?

Or upset you paid way more and got way less a year or less ago and now ur sad?

This would be a nice current gen highly capable and upgradeable home server / moderate gaming / media center build for $200ish and ur complaining, unreal

Anyone have any idea how this would compare to my Ivy Bridge i5 3570K? Could be a stop gap for me to finally upgrade to DDR4

Agree with you. And so do all the benchmarks. I think your theory about him being butthurt for paying more for an inferior cpu is spot on :-P

Honestly you have a very capable CPU and if you upgrade you're going to pay a premium for DDR4.

Yeah, exorbitant DDR4 price is the reason why I am still holding my upgrade. The recent security vuln's are just the cherry on top though.

This deal is an ATX sized board though. I built an ITX based home server and mATX based media center PC. Personally I wouldn't build either of those with the larger ATX sized board these days. Although this deal could work for those applications, if someone doesn't mind a larger form factor.

Then in terms of cost and performance. I am riding a combination of Sandy/Ivy/Haswell CPUs from back when there were really nice deals, along with my stash of DDR3 from back when prices were fantastic (example in my i7 rig 32gb of DDR3 for $70). Like a lot of other people, cost/performance favors sticking with my current builds.

Also another thing to consider is the issue with the Intel CPU predictive circuit architecture (Spectre/Meltdown security issue). I'm assuming they will come up with a fix for that with new gen of CPU. Not a show stopper, but not sure I want to buy into the current gen until that fix is implemented in the architecture.

I flushed intel in the toilet, now I am a AMD Ryzen guy, I have 1800X with 84 POE 3MP cameras running at 30% CPU load crazy super fast CPU for 1/2 the price of junk Intel CPUs.

Wait on all CPU purchases until they correct Spectre.

AMD plans to fix Spectre sometime in 2019 though, so waiting an entire year might not be feasible.

I have an aging 2500k and just bought a Vive so I'm waiting to see Ryzen + in March or April and waiting to see if Ryzen 2 will have the same socket before making any decisions.

Intel certainly is not junk, but I agree they were overpriced for many years.
