Dan,

You always have a very supportive "little something" to add....lol

Well, the 875K seems to performs pretty close to the 2600K...turbo boosts 2.0 gives you 5 extra fps in those games...nice, but nothing like a good OC could achieve...

So Sandy + 1155, really worth the wait compared to 875K ???? The difference is perf. is nice in sTARCRAFT, but for other games, it's not really worth it....

I'm sure a lot of people are waiting for those reviews, for different reasons, but mostly to see if it's worth the upgrade from their existing platforms...

From the little I have gathered over at XS these things are going to be beasts. Some people are hitting 4.8 Ghz with the 2500K on 1.1V on AIR! The 2600K is hitting 4.9-5 Ghz on air with low volts. From what I saw clock for clock the 2600K is slightly faster than the current 4 core I7 1366 chips.

well yes, more performance per clock where it can be made, and as per above good oc ability, only on the k chips unless our beloved giga and the like decide to shove it to intel for the poor man to overclock as well.

wow 5ghz on air i have not read much about it cause i was going to pass it by but DAMN. VVV which i do i mean i have 3 pc's right now not doing anything all i7's or i3's just waiting for parts and me to torture :haha:

If they can get 5Ghz on air, unless you OC there is no real benefit on a new socket...Unless you oc a lot...

im really curious what 8 threads at that speed can do with wu's :)

might bring back the single box solutions for us folders, like way back with the cheap celly d's

kinda sucks that you gotta pay a price premium to get a nice overclock :blarg:

Damn. At least another year of AMD getting slaughtered on the CPU front? I'm still hoping for a glorious return, though! :biggrin:
