4790K VS 4820K

Recommended Posts

Already have:

 

750w Power Supply 

8 GB RAM DDR3 1866 ( Have 1600 xmp profile)

Planing to buy one more 8GB to have 16GB

Radeon 7970 ghz edition

 

 

4790K and 4820K have the sampe price.

Planing to overclock this processors, but not extremely. (Already have good air cooling system)

 

 

Which would be better for our FSX? Which socket i have to choose?

 

Planing to buy the regular good motherboard, not "super extreme" series. Motherboard,which would be normal work in overclock, but without fanaticism.

 

Thank you!

I7 4790K or even I5 4960K, socket LGA1150, chipset Z97

4790k : 4 cores : oc till 4.5-4.8

5820k : 6 cores : oc till 4.3-4.6

 

Just 1 monitor about the same fps, perhaps the 4790k 2-3% more

With multimonitor , definitely the 5820k ( 2 more cores for terrain loading )

 

For the future socket 2011-3.

Haswell-E is already available Gerard. The 5820k is definitely an option to consider, with the caveat that he would need new DDR4 ram too

If you go with the 5xxx series chip you will need an X99 motherboard.  Pretty sure that means you have to get rid of your old RAM and go with the new DDR4 which is also quite expensive.  Go for a 4790K. It has the highest single threaded performance http://www.cpubenchmark.net/singleThread.html out of the box.  From what I've read there's diminishing returns in FSX after about 4 threads anyway so unless you have another need for more than 4 cores (like video editing or something), the extra two cores aren't as big of a benefit to FSX at least.

Why is even a question? 4790 is 25% faster in single core performance over 4820, at stock speeds.

Didn't mean to confuse you.  Someone else was suggesting a 5820 and I was making sure to point out that is a much more expensive route.  Then I suggested the 4790K with a link to the single threaded benchmarks to explain why.

And the 5820 itself is pretty much the same price with 6 cores. You need to come down and appreciate (or at least google) what people here are suggesting trying to help you out

Thank you! i am thinking about 4790k too

 

 

Could you advise some not really expensive MOBO for it. (Overlocking not much more 4.5, not going to use sli or crossfire. RAM not much more than 16 gb.

 

I am looking for ASUS Z-87A. 

 

Could someone say good or bad things about it?

 

Or advice other motherboard

 

THX!

Just go with the 4690k and save yourself $100 (if you absolutely have to get a CPU now....otherwise wait until next year for Skylake).

 

Gamers and simmers will not see a darn bit of tangible improvement with a 4790k vs the 4690k.

Choosing processor for:

 

1)Only FSX Gaming 

 

2) Autocad, Archicad, rarely 3DsMax
