Re: Upgrading Processor | Suggestions?
I have the same CPU - dunno why you'd want to upgrade it, not even the toughest games make it sweat! Stock clocks or overclocked its' still a very capable quad core. Year on year, per core perf has gone up by about 5-6% on stock speeds, so realistically Ivy Bridge would give you 5-6%, Haswell would give you 10-12% and Skylake would give you a bit of a bigger boost perhaps 18-22%. still, thats in things like Cinebench which are not real-world tests. Liklihood is you wouldn't even notice much of a difference.
Is there any reason you're wanting to upgrade, or just because you want to upgrade?
