what will platform better at all and what will be better at gaming ?
what will give me less bottle neck with a multi high graphic card configuration ??? (GTX580 SLI\\3 WAY SLI or GTX570 SLI\\3WAY SLI )???
These threads aren't going to stop so let me just make some general observations.
Clock for clock the 2600K should be better then the 950 by a marginal amount.. 2%-4%.. Something around there. A 5ghz 2600K will destroy a 4.2Ghz 950.
Memory Bandwidth when it comes to Tri Vs Dual is inconsequential. For maximum benefit when it comes to Sandy Bridge you want some really fast memory. DDR3 1600 should be the minimum and you should consider DDR3 2000-2200 which would be perfect.
32nm vs 45nm.. What more do i need to say?
95w TDP with IGP Enabled meaning if your using an H67 board and a 2600K you're getting 95w.
80w TDP with P67 Boards. THIS has NOT been confirmed yet but from what i've read this will be the TDP of a 2500K/2600K when using a P67 motherboard.
950 vs 2600K for 3 Card setups. It's a push. The high end P67 mobo's will have the NF200 chip.
