I remember Intel stating that there won't be 8-core processors initially, there will only be 6-cores for S1356.

We won't get 8-cores until Ivy Bridge(22nm) next year.

PS: I've never seen so many angry Bloomfield owners; I've never witnessed this intercollegiate fanboyism! Wow!

Paranoid? Maybe, but I'd rather be paranoid and have a slower chip than end up getting screwed over by this in the future.


See above, if you want to make someone do something they'd rather not do...You take baby steps.



See above.


Now I see why it seems like the majority of the world have no capability to think long-term...
I do agree that I wish there wasn't any DRM in these chips, but it has already been done in the past, Intel Viiv

The Viiv media platform included components that may be used by content owners to implement more tamper resistant DRM systems using features present in Intel's processor, the Core 2 Duo.
Source Wikipedia. I believe that AMD Live has a similar DRM scheme as well.

It would be hard impossible for them to activate further DRM control in the 2500 and 2600 CPUs. The best they could do is to write software to interface with this hardware accelerated DRM.

How does realizing that this "DRM" is basically harmless make me unable to think in the long-term? Do I believe that Intel / AMD will implement a hardware accelerated general DRM co-processor that software could use for general DRM uses . . . Yes. Do I think it wil be an issue . . . in the future yes. Would people boycotting Sandy Bridge because of hardware DRM that won't affect 99.999% of users really change that future . . . no.


Not sure if this was posted, but New Egg has the i5-2400 (non K) listed as deactivated. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-074-_-Product

Yea, it's crazy. It's a normal defensive behavior to make you feel better about your purchase. I do the same but don't voice it to the world.

I'm thinking about upgrading myself after seeing some of these numbers. Been almost 3 years for my Q6600 and I would love to run a quiet, efficient, and fast build.

It's funny when you see 980x owners throw a fit. Sorry that you dumped 1K on a CPU and you start to see 300$ CPU's start beating it...

I see no reason to upgrade to 1156/1366/1155 yet. The higher end 775 CPU's hang with i5's, plus everything is much cheaper.

What irks me is the many 1366 owners badmouthing the 1155 for not performing unrealistically above their 1366. The 1155 isn't the successor of the 1366, it's the successor of the 1156. Compared to the 1156, it passes in flying colors. Comparing an enthusiast series to a mainstream series just proves the insecurity of some. Compare your 1366 to Ivy Bridge or 2011.

The problem is, 1366 owners are butt hurt that a processor that's not even meant to compete with their socket is nibbling at their toes or throwing them off the cliff. It's funny now when I see people that have SR-2's and everything and all this money put into their rig and then SB comes out... lol Not to mention the resale value on 1366/1156 is going to take a tumble.

DRM = digital rights management
= controlling the use of product you purchased.

i buy mp3's for easy txfer/backup/compatibility.
never used itunes because of drm.

just another case of a co. telling you what you can and cannot do;
of course, feel free to surrender that freedom.

just dont surrender mine with yours.
