"elmer's glue" biggrin.gif I got caught again surfing the posts while drinking coffee and nearly spit it out laughing. Kudos. Hopefully they learn to give the best thermal glue smile.gif

So, will these devil canyon CPUs be compatible with z87 boards?

Intel has sold lidless desktop Xeons to Apple and other OEMs in the past.

I'm sure if you were willing to buy at least a few tens of thousands of parts, they would gladly omit the IHS on request.

one can dream...redface.gif

Its going to cost us a pretty penny for the 8 core K but my wallet is ready

Well I am in. Really could use the power upgrade.

For those of you who might think this is overkill for gaming, you might want to check out the news about DX12.

I used an intel cpu when quads first came out and I'm still using that CPU same cpu. a simple rig check could of showed I got a Q6600 in 1,0.

the performance is twice as good, in certain situations as in lightly threaded programs.

But, what I was getting that is now intel will be making their 8cores, which in turn will mainstream 8core cpus once prices drop, causing software developers to program for multi-core cpu's because it'll be the new norm, thus in a way ensuring I'll potentially be able to use my 8320 longer and have potentially be more effective then a quad core in the long run thumb.gif
Everyone screams AM3+ is dead, but you know what I'll be using mine. biggrin.gif

Don't get me wrong, everyone knows intel has better core for core performance, and they are good CPU's.
In my opinion, its not worth the money unless you aren't worrying about money, and at the time, I only had 300$ to spend on CPU/Mobo and ram, so I couldn't afford intel's premium. tongue.gif

its all how you look at it I guess, I would of rather saved the 60 and buy my 8gb of ram, and sacrificed some performance, but honestly, this 8320 wrecks anything I throw at it on stock, it OCs to 4.1 without any extra volts, So I can't complain with my purchase.

Still would be overkill for gaming, even more so with better scalability.. Would just mean cores/threads would be better optimized to share the load. Less load per core. Having more cores to do so would be nice but usage per core would be minimal...Probably even for unreleased next gen titles.

This is great news for multicore chips though!thumb.gif

This may sound like a noob question but
why exactly isnt and amd 83xx not a true 8 core?
