Probably because it's faster per clock cycle - costs the same as current gen i5's, and thus far seems to clock higher on air/water than current gen icores.

I don't see it being big for people doing DICE or LN2, but those people aren't gaming while dropping pellets into their pots either.

I think SB is pointless, There's NOTHING out that even maxes out current CPU's or anything that even warrant's more CPU power then we have currently. As a gamer I know my 1075T is and will be more then enough for some years to come.

Money is better spent on improvments else were in a system, HDD performance for example would be better 'noticed' then a CPU with more per-clock performance.

The benches will be here soon. Stop with the riduculous comparison.

Clock for clock, SB will be faster. That is a gaurantee!

I'll wait for the 4.0ghz OC comparison 950, 980, and SB.

4.0ghz OC will have a lot more meaning to OCN members, but i7 950 @4.5ghz vs. SB @5.0ghz.....come on now?

We'll have to wait to see how much faster. More people with 1156 will upgrade to SB than 1366.

My 1366 upgrade will not happen till Ivy Bridge,

Please do not speak on a personal level, simply because your personal usage may be provided by an old P4, many people here:
A. Push their hardware with CAD/rendering/encoding/folding/etc
B. Value having more cpu power than they need.

On a side note, bring your computer over and see if you can complete some of my work-- I do a lot of simulation work, a lot of which is done using Matlab, Solidworks and ComSol, and it is imperative that I have as much CPU power as is possible.

Yeah this does not seem to be a very high clocking platform.
Then again, 5700MHz is around the maximum from the i7-920s...

Sandy Bridge IS a NEW Microarchtecture that is MEANT to replace Nehalem. So, as such it will be faster clock-per-clock than current i7 CPUs. Whether LGA 1156 or 1366.

Ivy Bridge is still under the Sandy Bridge nomenclature, and will be a die shrink of 32nm SB chips.

Sandy Bridge is a "tock" (new Micro Arch.) Ivy Bridge will be a "tick" (shrink of same Micro Arch).

And it's possible we might see a 6-core CPU on LGA 1155, but only after LGA 2011 launches.

In any case, we will see 22nm CPUs on both LGA 1155 and 2011.

Speak for yourself. I play games via emulator (PCSX2) and an X6 isn't quite fast enough. Unfortunately, I've got a crappy motherboard (MSI 890GXM-G65) so no high overclocks to compensate for the lower IPC. Even then, a Phenom II at 4 GHz only matches a Core i3 Clarkdale at 3.5 GHz.

because most people with air cooling and a I7 9XX dont go over 4.2 Ghz and that is also with high temps with WC around 4.5 with SB you can reach a higher clock speed, even tough a 4Ghz vs 4Ghz would be interesting also a 4.5 vs a 4.5 xD

If it supports 6 threads natively then I don't see it being a problem

I play PS2 emulators at full speed, I suggest you read some guides on how to set Emotion Engine emulation up properly.

And that second comment is only true with a single graphics cards and that games that aren't multi-threaded.

Bad Company 2, Far Cry 2, GTA4, Metro 2003..... and many more games these days can run 4+ threads and in that case a Phenom 2 would eat the i3
