''Best'' CPU?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have experience with different CPUs?

 

The previous CPU was a 6600K, finding an ''upgrade'' without wasting money on specs that might actually degrade SQ is gonna be difficult.

I think my old CPU sounded best at its normal clock speed of 3.5GHz, was forcing it to operate at a non ''native'' clock speed with underclock causing it to sound worse or is it simply that faster CPUs sound better?

 

Does hyperthreading and/or number of cores matter?

 

AMD? At least at some point AMD was known for having a large number of virtual and intel with a few powerful physical cores.

AMD doesnt have intregrated graphics, that could be a good thing since it means simpler chipset ,simpler CPU and less hardware on the MoBo.

and IME with the 6600k SQ is better using a GPU instead of intregrated graphics.

Thanks, you are right, there are some good technical arguments for the Xeons.

Ill have to see if the cheaper/older models that go for around the same price as current i7/i5s still have those particular advantages.

So there isnt really any affordable xeons, and the mobo choices are another problem...

 

interestingly the AMD i7 equivalent ryzen 7 CPUs go for much less than practically all the recent i7s and share similarities with xeon,  like larger memory caches and lots of physical cores . also no video !

Some of the lower end Ryzens do have onboard video (they are delineated with a G like Ryzen 5 2400 G).

For a Daphile server, I was using a Pentium D dual core for the longest time with no issues what so ever. It just depends on the overhead that is needed for background processes.
