Please explain your logic? Your post makes very little sense and is equally innaccurate as it is uneducated.

Let us compare the i7-2600k with any non Hexacore i7, as they fall under similar price ranges.

The i7-2600k is faster clock for clock, starts with a faster clock speed, overclocks better and has far better memory throughput.
They both have the same number of cores and are both hyperthreaded.


In performance benchmarks released thus far, there is no doubt that Sandy Bridge outperforms quad core Nehalems.


On a side note, if you are building a new rig, SB will come out slightly cheaper, given current pricing.

I support your choice. Sandybridge isn't really anything to be hyped up over IMO.

that!

anyway you can say it has 8x 8x but in the end you'll lose like.. 1% performance over 16x/16x sli/crossfire so it doesnt matter that much. plus 1055 is rumoured to have ivy bridge compability aswell ^^

YEAH.. Totally worth it to go with a 950 over a 2600K
Unlocked FSB > Locked FSB

Triple Channel RAM support > Dual Channel

X58 boards > SB boards

See I can make comparisons too.

Triple channel has shown no significant advantage over dual channel.

Gaming :



Wow look at that staggering advantage.

How are X58 boards better?
