Of course, we're all on the bleeding edge anyhow with hardware much more powerfull than the average user, wich is what game developers aim for to increase the odds of having lots of game sales and make a lot of money in the process, and i'm not even mentioning that most aim for multiplatform releases with the low end these days being consoles, as they have 5~6 year old hardware in them, wich makes them seriously outdated by modern PC standards.

I love the 8 in the name


Disregarding the video cards, i can see a setup that can double performance in every application relative to mine as something that looks like this:


Dual 8 core ivy bridge CPU's(22nm fab process), with hyperthreading support, for a grand total of 32 thread handling ability and with the 22nm process, the capability to exceed well past the 4 Ghz barrier under load while needing little voltage increases and be easy to cool down.....Intel did say that their finfet 22nm fab process is 30% more power efficient than their 32nm process afterall, so we'll see how that translates into overclocking terms.



A motherboard supporting dual CPU sockets and has a lot of overclocking features, as well as using regular unregistered, non ECC DDR3 ram(obviously 4 memory channels per socket), and supporting up to 4 way SLI or 4 way crossfire....Basically the next generation after this EVGA SR-2 board i'm currently using...



Between the extra cores and the extra threads as well as the same or higher overclocking capabilities and the 4 memory channel per socket and any and all improvements to the architecture of the CPU's themselves(including new instruction sets like AVX), i do believe the performance can double over mine even in applications where all the cores and threads get fully used.....The question is when and if such a platform will exist, especially when in comes to the motherboard itself.....Will EVGA make a next generation dual socket board that can overclock?

LOL...hate much???


Compared your your tie wrapped monstrosity using ghetto cooling for the video cards, you're PC is hardly a standard to aim for....

Wait, you mentioned that like a million times already. That's your standard reply to every news post about something LGA2011 related. Please stop it already.
It's as bad as back when you just came here to talk about your Dual 5970 setup.

Slytat is absolutely right about you. There was a reason why I put you on ignore last time.

Not everything is about your system so you don't need to mention your system in every post. Then again, this is not the first time I'm trying to tell you this.

It's cool slawter, all i mentioned in my last post is what it would take to beat my setup conclusively in any and all applications by a large degree, and it obviously needs a lot....


Other users need what they need to beat theirs, and the hardware will be different for them....To each their own.

The guy obviously has issues, he makes bad hardware choices and then comes here to try and show off, oblivious to the fact that a large majority of the enthusiasts here know what they are talking about (unlike him).

Just go away Shadduh, and take your toy benchmarking box with you

Back on topic, the 3980x certainly sounds like an 8 core and that is very good news if it turns out to be true

If it is I want it. Rendering speed over 9000.

And now he speaks about the potential of 8 cores on that new release and how great it'll be when 4 cores are used in gaming scenarios.....Seriously pathetic.
