Should I keep my 4930k or upgrade?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I currently have a i7 4930K on a gigabyte x79 up4 motherboard with 32gb of ram and a asus rog strix 2080 super. I use the pc for photo and video editing as well as gaming? Is it worth upgrading or should I keep my current setup? If it is what should I upgrade to? I've been wanting to upgrade so I can use nvme ssds for faster storage.

only if the performance doesn't meet your standards

 

but in more general terms, no. we're pretty close to a CPU release from AMD, reveal at the beginning of october. keep an eye on the tech press to see what becomes available.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Really depends if you need the extra horse power or not, we kind of can't answer that. 

If you do need the extra horse power you could wait for zen 3 to launch and check what it has to offer, and decide which platform you want to move to, but for now, especially with an overclock and especially at higher resolutions the 4930k shouldn't be too bad with a 2080 super when it comes to gaming. 

again though, if it's worth it or not depends if you need more horse power or not, you decide that, not us.  


Fun Fact: The Meshify c is the best case to ever exist.

Get the upcoming 5900x (12 cores) double cores of what you have now + pcie 4.0 should be lovely.

Or get the 8 cores, the clockspeed difference should be high enough.

Some rumors recently say that will have the 5000 stamp so it will be inline with the next Rembrant APU. Well see in a month.

Or them just saying fuck you B450 owners, enjoy 4000 APU, now it's 5000, get a new board! 🤣

Another question. If I got this https://www.amazon.com/ASUS-M-2-X16-V2-Threadripper/dp/B07NQBQB6Z/?tag=tb3lap-20 Would I be able to use all for m.2 slots on my board?

Do you really need that many fast nvme ssd:s? Because then you are pretty much limited to Threadripper platform and then the smart thing to do is buy a board that comes with a 4x nvme ssd adaptor card.
