    No, Ivy is old news. Even though the IPC isn't that large of an increase, the heat dissipation because of the small die size is still the same. Make no mistake that both get hot. Haswell if anything

      AMD Phenom 9550 Quad Core 2.21 GHz, Thermotake Big Typhoon CPU cooler, 4 GB Ram, EVGA GeForce GTX 460, Windohz 7 64bit. I built this pc over 5 years ago. Looking to upgrade soon.

        I started playing UT3 with a AMD Athlon X2 4800 clocked at 2.8 Ghz and a pair of GeForce 7900GTX graphics cards in SLI. Compared to what I have now, it was really really slow. Then I moved to a core i7 870 and crossfire HD4870 graphics. That made UT3 a whole new game for me. This game wants a super high power cpu.

        Two years ago I build my current system, i7 2600K @ 4.2 Ghz with the HD4870 crossfire setup. I ran a pair of HD6870 in crossfire shortly after that. Now I run a HD7970. The HD7970 is not noticably faster than the HD6870 crossfire I had prior, but it makes much less heat. I also finally replaced my Sony Trinitrons, G520, with a pair of ASUS VG248. That in itself saved over 200 watts of heat from my summer cooling bill.

          How fun! Love upgrading I just think my currnent rig is still up to handling UT3, but I must confess that I feel I am pushing my system, but then again I spent the money on high quality parts building my current Gaming rig so I think I may let it ride a little bit more

          Awesome post, man!

              Just gonna revive this old thread with a new chip I've been running since about maybe 6 months ago. Xeon X5660 6 core 32nm 1366 socket @ 3.68Ghz @ 1.23v 160 BLCK on all 6 cores, no turbo, with turbo it will put one core at a 24x. I like the sound of the Xeon X5675 with a 25x @ ~ 200$ 5Ghz zone

                      Yes, borderline, I'll give you that but 213 was an old alias I use to go by online (ingame) and on these forums until Flak banned my user account for an oversight.

                            I run my game on my 1-year-old laptop. It has an Intel core i3 processor. No game issues so far.

                                I started playing UT3 with a AMD Athlon X2 4800+ clocked at 2.6Ghz and GeForce 7900GTX SLI. Looking back, that was pretty slow. Even with more powerfull video cards, same story. When I went to a core i7 870, it was a huge impovement. That completely changed the game for me. That showed me that the older hardware was holding me back. Better hardware will not make you a better player, but, it will permit you to play at your best.
