The 2600k is better with price per performance and Performance per watt

SB only has 4 cores and in some benches beats 980x, and 980x wins out in others.

Stick another 2 cores on SB and it would KO 980x

The fact that this thread even exists is an enbaresment to the site.

980x will decimate this mainstreme platform everyday of the week and twice on Sundays

This statment is not saying anything bad about SB. it simply is out of it's league.

try this going quad to quad and it might even be readable

^This^

Darn this really sucks, too bad I only upgrade every few years guess I'll have to keep getting my money out of this 980 because my next stop is isn't until 2012-2013 when 22nm comes out

There is no question the new SB are good chips at a reasonable price. But as an enthusiast choice it's just a bit boring especially OC'ing wise with a fixed BCLK. It is after all a mid level platform that replaces the 1156. Ivy Bridge will be the eye opener to see how far things have come since 1366 platform. But being sensible in all this your not going to see much difference in real world application until programmers better utilize multi core/threaded CPUs. I still have a Core2 Q9550 @ 4GHz and playing games I can see little difference over my 980x as they are so GPU intensive.

Agree, so far it's only benchmarks where the difference is seen, and that's only about e-peen size
