I made this video about the evolution of Intel CPUs for a school project, and I thought it might be interesting for some of you here on the forums to watch :)

The video covers Conroe to Sandy Bridge in detail and includes "apples to apples" (as close as I could) benchmarks for everything from Conroe to Ivy Bridge.

Enjoy :D

Wow. This was really informative. Hope you got a good mark for this because it's great. 

Like if you liked it. Share it if you thought it was great. Leave a reply if you emotions are a bit more complicated   ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

its pretty good tbh, this really shows why a I5 680 can be competetive today still, i have one and as an upgrade from the Q6600 i used to have in that machine it was an amazing upgrade, its just sad that LGA 1156 motherboards are so rare and expensive because the CPUs are still pretty good for a budget machine

I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally)...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee!

 

The original LAN PC build log! (Old, dead and replaced by The Toaster Project & 5.0)

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016

I have two i5 650 sitting on my desk that I got for free. Ive been looking for a good deal on a P55 board but deals like that are impossible to find :P

You can also get really good xeons like the X3450 and E5640 for close to nothing these days.

yah motherboards are super hard to find, i got one by chanse paired with an I3 530 that had a bent socket pin and then i got myself an I5 680 for cheap and it was amazing for the price but after that i have only seen one other motherboard and it went for over $70

I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally)...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee!

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016

Sometimes you get lucky.

I got lucky with a P6T Deluxe V2, an I7 920 and a Coolermaster cooler for 400kr (50USD).

The only problem is that the two middle slots on the mobo dont work, otherwise im currently using the motherboard with a xeon and 16gb of ecc ram in my server :D
