Not only is this a downfall for this CPU but Intel only has a quad core and not a six or eight core with no information insight of another six or even eight core. Hopefully they will release a better CPU this year. I cannot wait until 2012 for an eight core or next gen 6 core cpu from Intel. If this is the case it looks like I am going with AMD Bulldozer CPU 8 core and hope it destroys Intel Sandy Bridge because not only with the CPU be cheaper than Intel, but will probably force Intel to lower their prices and produce six and eight core cpus for an affordable price on their cpus. I really dont like Sandy Bridge cpus so far thinking about going to AMD.

This thread looks like a Troll
Intel can Turn off your pc if your dl pr0n and if your playing WoW they will only give you 2 hrs of playtime. Run away from SB wait for mythical BD

What no six core chips?!?! I hear everything is optimized for 12+.

SB is fail! Look I got this benchmark here that shows 6>4.

When the dust settles, I would have paid just about the same you would have for the 2600k, about 300 bucks (100 bucks more then you for 30% performance increase.) But I have been using it for about 8 months and it has made me an extra 2000 dollars a month.

I have no hate for sandy bridge, but it is not worth the upgrade for something that at stock is slower then what I have. When they release something fast enough to make me more money I will buy it. Until then, this cpu is great. If you do not have a fast chip and you make money off it, upgrade to sandy. But for me at best it is a dead heat and worst a performance hit. But it looks like a very good chip, and if I needed it I would upgrade.

When they make a chip that, at stock, gets about 30% faster then the 980x, then I would upgrade.

It is about money for me.

When I encode audio, I can only use 2 cores. But then I just set 3 programs to use 2 cores each. Once again 30% faster for the same price.

I don't blame anyone for not going SB due to the DRM implementation. The majority of pc users despise DRM because it just creates more problems for the end users when the real problem they are targeting just finds a work around. That's the [H]ard truth, whether you like it or not.

Dude, you don't have any SB, wake up, they're not selling them yet, so stop trolling and hating, and complaining and saying SB is the "non plus ultra" chip. (I've seen lots of threads with you sucking SB b, you have to love yourself a bit more)
I do really hope SB make you feel more confident and be like an awesome dude, and make grow your e-peen, and get you lots of chicks ( I was kidding on the last one).

At the end of the day, if the SB owns all the chips in the universe, fine... there are always faster chips coming... those intel filthy rich guys....

Then you made the wrong choice, a server based build would have been fast and more cost effective.

It's also not slower, it just don't have the cores yours does, or the price tag. You can't say you've got 80% performance out of it compared to an i5-2500k. And you can't say a dual chip sever platform wouldn't have been more cost effective, and better performing.

So what are you really trying to say?

It's also not sooo much slower, since it's faster than yours at stock vs overclocked and we all know you never got very far with your stock cooler on a $1000 chip.

This is just wrong. A CPU shouldn't question the ethics of what you're doing with your computer; it should simply do it.

I'm not regretting buying an i5 760. Fastest CPU I've ever owned.

You guys still don't get it.

Let me try once more.


THIS ISN'T NETNANNY BUILT INTO YOUR COMPUTER.


The only thing this does, is give INTEL an advantage on everyone else out there. This allows Intel to prevent people from copying or keeping something you're just renting. That something is something NOBODY CURRENTLY HAS RIGHT NOW, because that something is 1080p streaming movies that are not available ANYWHERE when Intel will be allowed to sell them.

This doesn't have anything to do with copying, ripping, pirating, NOTHING AT ALL (when it comes to old or even new martial not provided in this fashion).

This is ALL ABOUT MONEY. This allows Intel to do get something NOBODY ELSE CAN PROVIDE. Security to Hollywood, that their product won't end up on Demonoid because it was allowed through this service by Intel. THAT IS ALL IT IS.


NOTHING MORE.
