Hey guys, I'm putting a new rig together very shortly and am wondering which CPU I should get out of the i5 750 or i7 920 (or even the i7 860) Basically as I see it they pretty much all have pretty similar performance, but the 920 has a weaker turbo mode, triple channel ram, hyper threading and easier to o/c. The 750, cheaper, no HT, dual channel, etc. The difference in memory bandwidth doesn't bother me, although I do a lot of stats, I don't think it would make too much difference. (Actually, a benchmark in the R stats environment would interest me a great deal, haha) Turbo mode doesn't bother me too much either as I plan on o/c'ing. I don't think I'll be doing too much video encoding and rendering so HT won't benefit me much there, and games don't really make use of it. In fact am I right in saying sometimes they perform better with it disabled? Now given in games and number crunching the CPU's offer relatively similar performance (depending on the app) am I going to 'want' HT? In the real world and for everyday use, where I have 2 screens with 11ty apps open, does HT make a difference? I think when the new i5 chips came out, [H] said windows didn't feel as 'snappy' due to the lack of HT, would anyone agree with this? All thoughts welcome.
