Default Intel Leaks i7-2700K

Quote:
Intel's Sandy Bridge CPUs were launched in January and so far, the desktop i7 lineup has consisted of three SKUs: i7-2600, i7-2600K and i7-2600S. Earlier this week, Intel released 16 new Sandy Bridge CPUs, but the desktop i7 series remained unchanged. Yesterday, Intel updated their Material Declaration Data Sheets (MDDS) with product code for i7-2700K. The exact product code is:

BX80623I72700K SR0DG

For comparison, the product code for i5-2500 is:

BX80623I52500 SR00T

Lets break down the product codes. The first two letters, "BX", stand for boxed unit. These letters would be different if the unit wasn't a boxed unit, for example "FF" is for non-boxed PGA988 units. There could be a third letter "C" which means it's a boxed unit for China market (hence there are two product codes for i7-2700K). After that, there is a five number code "80623". This is a specific code for all boxed desktop Sandy Bridge CPUs. Finally we get to the processor number which is the most interesting part and in this case, revealed the i7-2700K. There is still a separate spec code after the processor number and it's processor specific as well......

Unless the Mhz wall is higher for these chips I dont see any point for an ocer to buy one over a 2600k.

Yea, they're probably 2600K's but clocked like 200mhz more
Which isn't even worth the extra $30 they probably gonna pack on that

You know somebody out there will buy the 2700K no matter what it is priced at.

Agreed with you guys...it sounds like Intel wants a CPU binned a bit higher so they can make a little more money on the CPUs.

Yeah the problem for overclockers is that these SB chips have a Mhz wall so what you get all comes down to luck. 2700k may give 5Ghz at slightly lower vcore due to binning but that remains to be seen.

I looked at the benchmarks of the X79 2011 socket, and the only things it beats the 2600k in is video rendering, and particle physx simulation, ONLY cuz its got 12 threads goin. Bascally just a faster gulftown
