Intel's Sandy Bridge processors have a remote kill switch - TechSpot News
Meh...looking over at xtremesystems. Some members managed to get it from their local shops (OMG WHY WON'T SOMEONE BREAK STREET DATE FOR ME???) and have been toying with their SB chips for the last week or so. Now motherboards are available freely but it seems CPUs are not. I still can't seem to find any retailer putting the K versions up, only the non-Ks.

That CPU, the i7 2600K, benched here, the 4th from the top of the chart:

PassMark Intel vs AMD CPU Benchmarks - High End

EDIT: found my answers..

So the S1155 i7 2600K, will probably go for around $350 CDN (if locked version is $305)...

Funny thing is...according to the benchmark (to be taken with a grain of salt), the 2600K is much more powerful than the i7-950
i7 4770K @ 4.0GHz / Corsair H100i / MSI Z97A Gaming 6 / 16GB Kingston Hyper X 1.5V 1600 / MSI GTX1070 FE / Samsung 850 Evo 500gb / Corsair Performance Pro 128GB SSD / Intel 520 120GB SSD / WD Black 640 GB storage / XFX 850 watts Black Edition PSU

ROG G53SX laptop: i7 2630QM / 12GB DDR3 / GTX560m 2GB / 750GB 7200rpm (14 000 3Dmarks06)
