You can laugh at people with 980x's/dual 56xx's or the fact that older sockets are going to lose their resale value all you want. The same will happen to people that purchase SB parts not long after they are released, either to a newer Intel CPU that will follow soon or AMD and BD, etc.
He's just mad, leave him. 980x's and dual 56xx's will crush SB in tasks that people buy the 980x's/dual 56xx's for such as video editing and encoding.

If people are so worried about resale value on everything they purchase, put the money in the bank and do not buy anything! Then the government will de-value the currency and it will be worth less!

1. not applicable for P67 chipsets
2. only affects media streaming (i.e makes "impossible" to record Netflix shows)
3. and you do realize that both AMD GPU and Fusion got DRM on the video output right ?

now where's that -1 button
can AMD/ATi remotely disable my hardware too?
they can have their HDCP content. for now.

im happy with my dvd's. i want my open blu-ray.

it's called Anti-Theft, nothing to do with DRM..
"Laptop gets stolen from business, business IT kills the system till it's returned, no data stolen"
and what does HDCP got to do with sandybridge m8 ?

in case you are interested in facts and not rumors, check this link about anti-theft :
http://www.intel.com/technology/anti...tech-brief.pdf

you can recover the CPU with the user password.

right, it will only be used to protect data/property theft.
not for tracking or snooping by intel and if hacked, by who knows.
pentium 3 unique serial nos. come to mind; only this time they can disable the machine remotely.

doesnt drm+hdcp go hand in hand? blu-rays drm needs hdcp for output delivery.

well then, if intel wanna track me playing COD4 they can be my guest (i would even teach them a thing or two).
but it's obvious that sandy bridge not for you, nor Google, facebook, or any ISP in the united states..

I'm pretty damn surprised at how good the i5-2500k is, especially in the gaming benches on the Tom's Hardware review. I was initially looking at an i7-950, then was looking at the i7-2600K, but after looking over those reviews, I may go with the i5-2500K.

I think it's just the 4-5 times buying cost of a single 980x, compared to SB for similar performance in most cases that people are giggling about. And the brevity of the 980x's superioty, Intel certainly knew what they doing when they priced those chips...

The natural order of things is to buy a cpu at a regular price and then have that be made obsloete by newer chips, that's fair enough.

And, there is something strange about 1366 users, now that their platform has been surpassed by their own camp, they can't handle it!? You'd think an Intel fanboy would be pleased for Intel that they've brought out an excellent cpu. Not half of the 1366 users on here. It's quite sad.

These new chips from Intel look really good and are good value for money. If I was upgrading I'd go for the 2500k.
It's the same old story with PC hardware. There's always something faster and if you buy the fastest CPU or GPU it won't be the fastest for long.
I try to upgrade when an 80%-100% performance increase is there, that way you can last a few years. Also only upgrade when you need more power not just because something new is out. New stuff doesn't make your stuff any slower.
