Looks like Intel (sort of) pulled a Bulldozer lolz.

Keeping my 2600k until it dies or Has/Broadwell comes out.

Are there any reviews that show the difference between PCI-E 2.0 and 3.0 with a GTX 680 on a Sandy Bridge Platform and Ivy Bridge?

This release has gotten me even more excited for Piledriver/Trinity. Time to close that gap some AMD (in the compute side of course). Although I have no love for Intel, I do see where they are going with this and really believe that Haswell is going to be a beast on this 22nm node. I love competition in this industry! I enjoy new releases and advancement in human technology. Now I just hope that AMD bounces back and surprises us all. Scale of 1 to 10 for this release, I give Intel a 6. (sandy was a 9) I am an owner of an 8120 and even though I love it and it does everything I need it to do its score on release was a 6 also.

Thanks for posting this stuff guys really I am so happy I got a 2600K at MC for $199. I also bundled it with a ASRock Z77 Extreme 4 for a steal and reading all this stuff I am so happy I did. I went from a Core 2 E8500 and the difference is crazy.

I'd be willing to bet that on a node that's 9x what IB is that you could get away with a lot more. I'd be terrified that a spec of dust on the block would just destroy the cpu.

~ 4% Faster Clock per Clock which in reality translates to nothing. I am personally going to pick up a Z77 MB for now and keep my 2500K. Upgrade if they improve IVY with a new reversion.

Thx for the help thumb.gif , I think I will keep my 2600k since I just have a single AW2310 as my monitor now which don't need that PCIE 3.0.

Lol for almost 30% the temp increasing just for 4% performance clock to clock increasing, Thats epic! mad.gif

Think we will see a price drop on the 2500/2600k's?
Would definatley pick up a 2600k and z68 mb if they get a price drop for sb's launch.

I think it will just drop a little bit, since intel will not sell SB under their manufacturing cost, and also the demand for SB will goes up after every moderate overclockers realize that SB is more worth than Ivy due to the higher temp of Ivy (means they have to buy more advance Liquid cooling).

*Moderate overclockers are the people want to overclock around 4.5Ghz and just have an air cooler or moderate water cooling such as H100.

You can run any chip bare if you want. Mobile versions often are, GPUs are, etc. You can see it working just fine on modern nodes. The dies are still coated after all, you're not touching the metal layers directly or anything.

I think it will just drop a little bit, since intel will not sell SB under their manufacturing cost.

Let's also note that SB's manufacturing cost is probably way under what they sell for. AMD is razor thin on margins, Intel is Garfield.

Thanks for the explanation. Now that I think of it, my old Atom netbook that I took apart did have a bare die.
