Intel Sandy Bridge Core i5-2500K & Core i7-2600K Processors Review Comment Thread
With Intel still adhering to their tick / tock release strategy, it was only a matter of time until a new architecture was introduced and it's name is Sandy Bridge. Today marks the launch of no less than eight new desktop processors based on a highly refined 32nm manufacturing process and ranging in price from $120 all the way up to nearly $350. Their goal is to effectively replace a large portion of the Clarkdale and Lynnfield products while offering up stiff competition against AMD's current and upcoming CPUs.

Cinebench page is missing 11.5 chart...the benchmark for 10 is posted twice.

Awesome review! Honestly these CPUs are performing a lot better than I expected them to! Imagine if they are running at 4.7GHz on air! What a beauty.

PS: How come you guys only posted 1680x1050 res when benching gamess? :(

These processers look great. Thanks for the overclocking explanation.

Also using Deep Fritz as a benchmark was both unexpected and awesome. Now if you only had a Maxwell benchmark..

I still dont see anything about this (and I'm not even sure who would be responsible); Is some kind of 'optimus' like technology available via Intel/AMD/nVidia to use with these IGP's? Obviously it exists on laptops already...Can/will we be able to do this with desktops for power savings if wanted?
