i7 930 @ 4GHz vs 1090T @ 4GHz

It seems that there will be some quad core models with 35w TDP only (let us not forget thats this includes the graphic core) Quote: * K - Overclockers' favourite, has unlocked BClk multipler * S - Energy efficient, quad-core S chips have TDP of 65W against 95W, while having comparable clock speeds * T - Low-power, have relatively lower clock-speeds, quad-core chips have TDP of 35W * M - Mobile processors * QM - Quad-core mobile * XM -...
Why it use GDDR5 memory and PCI express slots if it is not a GPU ? Quote: The Knights Ferry has 32 x86 cores clocked at 1.2GHz and featuring quad-HyperThreading. The unit, aimed at PCI Express 2.0 slots, has up to 2GB of GDDR5 memory. The chip itself has 8MB of shared L2 cache, which is quite intriguing by itself since highly-parallel applications do not require a large on-chip cache

From the article Quote: Let's start with multi-threading, which Del Rizzo says is readily available in CPU-PhysX, and "it's up to the developer to allocate threads as they see fit based on their needs." He points out that you only need to look at the scaling shown in...

up to %24 improvement over lynnfield is really good Also, let us not forget that Sandy-bridge is probably going to have higher default clock speed than similar priced lynnfield

Wrong Westmere is up to 50% faster than Bloomfield, when both are running at same clock speed "up to" means that max difference, not average This quote taken from the article Quote: "From...
Why people keep saying that sandy-bridge won't overclock ? Intel is going to release sandy-bridge with either partially unlocked multi, or with fully unlocked multi. The models with partially unlocked multi are going to overclock, but there will be a certain limit set by Intel
