EX meaning Extended? Meaning it's just SB from 1155 with more memory channels, cache and cores bolted on? Either that or EX for Extreme/EN for Enthusiast as 2011 will be both of those niches and servers.

Yes, but they didn't make it so they were the only OC capable ones, nor was the entire lineup priced so horribly above what the market they're in was at.

You can't say nVidia has crappy value for money period simply because the 7950GX2, 8800GTX, GTX 295, GTX 590, etc all cost a lot.

Affordability, yeah, fine, throw that out the Window... but we should be getting the whole enchilada. FULL overclocking across all the processors, new features, perhaps even a small price improvement... that is not the case. I am not paying near $1000 for a processor that does not fully overclock. And yeah, sure, this is SB, a supposedly brand new architecture but was it ever really that big an improvement over Nehalem? Except maybe for the overclockability, many people say no. Think of it: Gulftown was 6 cores at 32nm. This is also 6 cores at 32nm. Big difference? I don't see how, perhaps except overclockability
Sandy is faster per clock and OCs far higher when you have an unlocked multi CPU.

AMD owners are so close minded when it comes to word about something that will beat their Tonka trucks.
Intel owners (Especially 1366) are very close minded when it comes to something that isn't on Socket 2011 and that beats and/or matches their chips for a lot less, remember all of them on the 1155 threads?

And if I recall correctly, limited unlock were the ones that could only go up 2-3 multipliers, full unlock (K edition) are the OCing ones, we haven't heard about those and I doubt Intel won't launch any budget ones, cause there is no chip in the world that isn't unlocked to a limited-by-the-multiplier-before-other-things multiplier, 60x may be the highest the architecture actually can do/knows how to get the speed, limited means it could go far higher but its limited in order not to.

This.

They did it to save costs on 1155...Great, that's meant to have budget CPUs and I'm sure it will save money, now, why is it on the all out, balls to the wall server and enthusiast platform? They don't care about saving $5 per motherboard at the expense of being able to tweak exacting settings and/or reliability, there's far better things Intel could have done instead.

This is a chinese site, its a rumor, stop getting your panties in a bunch over it people, its Intels own stupid decision if there's no 4 series K edition chip.

There was a source a while back speculating that the first processors to be offered on Sandy Bridge would be Extreme Editions only. The report here is stating that the first x79 processors to be offered will be 2 6 core models and 1 4 core model. However, nothing has been stated about the model numbers of these processors, so I don't think anyone can claim for a fact that any of these models are extreme editions.
