are the new SB chips junk? or just priced lower then intel usaully gouges...I'm just causing trouble

I thought the sandy bridge was the Ivy's, so Ivy bridge will be 8 core like bulldozer right?

no they arent junk, just very limited on choices if you want to overclock and you can only use a "Unlocked" cpu to overclock since multis is the only way you can, but it makes it tons easier to OC now

No you are confused.

The current Sandy Bridge chips are Mainstream chips, they're on the Mainstream socket.

They're priced exactly where last gen core series chips were priced.

When the high end Sandy Bridge chips come out you'll see $400-$1000+ chips again, they will have between 6 and 8 cores with Hyper-threading.

Sandy Bridge is to P55, as Ivy Bridge is to X58. knowing intel they'll probably pull something sweet out to cap any competition in benchmarks, but that doesn't mean the 1155 socket wont see better days and newer chips

are you mad? or just a troll.

the i7 2600K @ 5Ghz is faster than a 980X @ 4.5Ghz.

Ivy bridge isn't just going to be 8 cores. it will have 4 cores to 16 Cores hopefully.


Stop trollin' OCN.

Like I said, I'm over from AMD town to cause trouble.

Go hide behind your expensive intel logos, your benches don't concern us.

On-topic: I think I heard somewhere that Ivy Bridge will be compatible with the motherboards Sandy Bridge use?

They're priced low because they're technically 'Mainstream'. The 'Enthusiast' parts will be coming out on the X68 Platform at the end of the year.
