Intel Sandy Bridge CPU Details and Benchmarks Leaked
 
Computex 2010 saw numerous motherboard manufacturers showing off their 6-series chipset offerings for Intel's new generation of Sandy Bridge based processors. The only thing missing was details on the new CPUs themselves. Fortunately for all the tech junkies out there, an engineering sample has landed in the hands of Coolaler.com who has been kind...

We now know at least one processor will be a Quad Core with hyper-threading (8 threads) clocked at 2.5GHz. The chip has 256MB of L2 Cache per core
Awesome!!!!

Woot! 1GB of L2 cache total! OVERKILL. I'll shut up now. :whistle:

But, I'm still confused as to the whole point of the 1156-1155 transition.

What's there to be confused about?

The 1156 to 1155 transition is simply a money grab by Intel. :doh:

Yeah more sockets = more money for Intel. MB manus use Intel chips so they sell chips to them plus people upgrade their CPUs

I think I may just jump on the AMD side this round as I'm sick of this whole socket change all the time. AM3 should be here for a while shouldn't it?

AM3 has some life left in it, but I wouldn't expect too much in the way of new procs from here on in... The next round of procs will not be backwards compatable.

AMD does the same thing, they are just slow slugs compared to Intel. How long did it take to adopt DDR3? lol

Probably a bit gun shy after the reaction to the S939 -> AM2 "upgrade"............ ;)

Even if it take a long time for AMD to adopt DDR3 they don;t throw us 5 socket in 2 years...But their next socket is supose to be a LGA so it wil be interesting:)
