Was just reading a this story:


So it seems that Sandy Bridge will behave the same as Westmere i3 and i5 chips and chipsets. And this is disappointing.

I have not been interested in Westmere because I don't see why I should pay for a chip containing a GPU I'm not going to use, and a motherboard with hardware for that GPU that I'm not going to use.

If the GPU were sill active with discrete cards installed, that could give more active monitors and even allow you to have a status screen while gaming, then I would be more excited.

But with the news of the lack of overclocking in Sandy Bridge, it just seems like a more restricted Westmere.
