What is the point in buying this processor for U$1200,00 (!!!) if you have the new Sandy Bridge with same performance costing 3 times less?

But with Sandy Bridge, you can overclock the i7-2600K to 5GHz using air cooling. That narrows the margin of Gulftown vs. Sandy Bridge to basically nonexistent, with Sandy Bridge winning most of the applications and Gulftown taking some HEAVILY multithreaded apps with very tiny gains.
