What CPU on the Intel side is better then the i7 4770K? Haswell? 1150 socket?

 

Need to upgrade my CPU so that it can do 2 to 3 transcoding streams at once (my current can hardly do one, to be clear, my listed specs is not my streaming PC). What would be the best option?

What's the budget? I think the Extreme Edition or Xeons come with more cores which could help, but they're usually almost 2x more expensive.

Indeed they do, up to 6 core on the Extreme Edition if he wants to stick with a desktop CPU in 2011 format. The Xeons come in 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 core variants.  Some of them able to do 2 and 4 CPU sockets.  Could get a couple 12 core variants, 24 cores, 48 logical cpus xD

I really do think that the i7-4930K is worth the extra money, as long as you can fit it in your budget, the performance increase is worth the price. However, the extreme CPU line does not give as big in a jump in performance as the 4770K to the 4930K is.

I said Socket 1150 and you offer 2011?

 

I have a system in place, Socket 1150, so it has to be that still. I don't really have a budget, but if I can pay around the price of a 4770K then it would be nice.

There really isn't anything higher than the 4770K or 4771 for socket 1150. If you just need more speed, try overclocking. If you need more cores then you'll have to change sockets.

Oops sorry, I haven't had enough sleep and didn't read the thread really... :p

 

Yeah, you won't get past the 4770K or 4771.

I haven't used the 4771 myself but a quick look on Newegg tells me it's worth it for the $10 price difference.

It'll be harder to overclock though, and I'm seeing only a clock rate difference between them. You can get 4.4GHz out of a 7440K, so there's that.

I think the 4770K Quad Core is enough. I currently have a i3 duel core.

 

I just wanted to know if there was better, I guess not.

The 4771K is going to be the best you can get right now, the Haswell refresh will be out in a month or two, but do not expect any core count increase.  You will have to jump to another socket if you want more cores.

Why would the 4771 be better? There is no 4771K, 4771 is the same as 4770K without the ability to overclock.

you can always use the Xeon E3-1280 v3, it supports the socket H3 (1150). You should be able to transcoding several streams with this CPU.

That is twice the price, and is under the 4770K in performace if you look at the page linked in previous post :)

The 4770 and 4770K are the same. The 4771 isn't quite the same as a 4770 (or unlocked 4770K).

 

Not counting the other non K vs K differences, which is very important for my choice of CPU.
