Can you post a link/source? This is disappointing if so.

More cache? Yes.
New stepping and overclock further? Nobody knows.
Memory speed? No, if you mean quad channel RAM, big whoop.
Cost less? Yes, but then you put extra money into the board/chipset, CPU cooler that it lacks (we mostly do this anyway, but still), and RAM.
According to that TDP, it also consumes more power, which generally means makes more heat.
In other words, it's no better, but not necessarily worse, than a Core i7 2600K. Here's my confusion though. Everyone on LGA 1366 says LGA 1155 isn't worth it, yet this
will be the CPU they get (and turn around and rave about). Funny...Edited by Princess Garnet - 8/22/11 at 12:39am
