[Softpedia] Intel Prepares Core i5-2550K Unlocked Processor - Page 5

post #41 of 95
So this is like the i7 2700k for the i7 2600k people?

Not getting this, I'm happy with i5 2500k.

Intel is nowhere near a monopoly, they are innovating constantly. They had a huge market share when they released Sandy Bridge, was that not a great architecture? They're about to release Ivy Bridge in a few months, another innovation on their architecture. It is so incredibly ironic that you are complaining Intel is taking advantage of their market position when they are constantly improving their processors while AMD just released an absolute failure of a chip.

I am really in disbelief that people can be so incredibly ignorant. Posts like this eliminate what little faith I had left for the next generation, and if these posts were made by people from the current generation I am even more saddened still. sadsmiley.gif

You do know they've been doing this for a long time, don't you?

For everyone who says this is due to Intel's monopoly, how long have you been following processors? rolleyes.gif A few months?

I don't understand why so many people are getting PO'd about this. How do you think AMD people feel when AMD has released a bunch Phenom II X4s each with 100MHz bump.

I understand that AMD and Intel have done this in the past, but with AMD starting to focus more on the mobile platform instead of desktop. Intel is a monopoly in the desktop market, if AMD could compete with them on a performance level we would see a lot more improvements within both the companies(AMD does very well in the server and mobile market as I'm sure most of us all know). True competition causes innovation, I'm pretty sure Intel has been holding back with their products because AMD can't compete with them currently.

What sort of innovations do you think Intel has been "holding back" just because of AMD? Siliconless processors perhaps?

It may be only a slight increase in MHz, but any new chips are welcome. Think of all the variations of Core2Duo and Quads that came out. Now it seems there are much fewer choices for anyone choosing a processor specifically for overclocking. You basically are forced to buy a "K" model unless you have an extra $700 laying around for an extreme variety. Unfortunately, there are hardly any "K" models out there. Intel really needs to open up a wider variety of unlocked chips in all price ranges.

There is a chance that it will be quite a bit better overclocker. Phenom II 955 is c2 revision and the 965 is c3 revision which is well known to overclock to 4.1-4.2ghz as opposed to 3.8-3.9ghz. Im sure a 2550k will be a speedy little chip for sure, especially at 5.2-5.3ghz. Im looking forward to the fx-8170 for my am3+ board or quite possibly the Opteron 3280 HE thats to be released soon for am3+. It's supposed to be stock clocked at 2.7ghz or so but who knows for sure. It maybe a good performer or it may not. Try not to bash me too hard guys, your 2500k's will most likely still beat out my fx/opty don't worry! thumb.gif
