How would they have done that? This is still Sandy Bridge, just bigger and better. If you were looking for any meaningful single threaded performance increase, you were setting yourself up for disappointment.

It's virtually a sure thing.

I would be utterly astounded if LGA-2011 didn't last though at least one process shrink. If anything, I would expect it to outlast 1155.

This right here is a downfall Sin had commented on.. Power Consumption
Consumo_full.jpg
107 more watts for 2 more cores

Not sure what's the downfall here?

Just over 50% greater power consumption for 50% more cores and nearly double the cache? Sounds exactly where it should be.

It's SB-E. Just SB with more cores, architecture is nearly identical. Any appreciable performance improvement per core will have to wait for a die shrink and other improvements.

Why are we so sceptical? It was obvious that consumption will go up. You cannot add two extra cores without increasing power consumption. From what I've seen so far, SB-E is exactly what INTEL promised. It is nowhere near as blown out of proportion like something else we know biggrin.gif

I will be upgrading to it once I have the money purely for folding reasons. Fold for the Cure!!!

Some serious misconceptions here or you find gaming at 30 FPS acceptable.

I run my games at 120+ FPS which takes some serious CPU power. My 2700K @ 5.3 Ghz just barely meets that in some games. (no my GPUs aren't maxed out).

So they were using one GTX 580.
Those benchmarks are GPU limited, both in BF3 and Crysis 2. Both engines supposedly use 6-8 cores so we're going to have to wait for non-GPU limited benchmarks before you see the gain. You can't just magically add performance when the CPU is being held back by the GPU, or when the game doesn't use enough threads.

I agree with the poster that said it's the games and devs at fault (other than the Crytech 2 and Frostbite 2 engines) for badly threaded games. Intel has fantastic IPC, the only logical thing to do is add cores now.

I love for power consumption it says more is better tongue.gif.

Lack of increase in gaming performance. :/
Hoping that that'll get better before they actually hit the market.
Wondering a bit on prices compared to the 2x00k's. If anyone knows anything?

I was about to say.. Shouldn't that be 1156 is the 'dead' platform?
Because I don't consider 1155 to be a dead platform.
