And throughout the tests there was one particular standout attribute; its memory benchmarks where it left the 990X for dead over and over and scored up to 111% better in some instances.

I have no Idea, But if they can keep up to what they say then this will be an incredibly performance boost over the X58 platform of which it is meant to be replacing.

I seem to remember a price around the $560 mark, which is very cheap compared.

I'll have to find the source of that, though.

Gaming there almost the same, only in synthetic and multithreaded apps the 990x demolishes the 2600k.

It's the memory bandwidth increases I'm looking at... They are huge!

Hehe.... ain't that the truth? I know that SBE will have quad channel, but still! The memory controller is, I think, the single greatest leap that Intel made between Nehalem and Sandy Bridge.
