So my motherboard is just about done for and I need to upgrade to a new board fairly soon. My USB slots are screwed up, very touchy and I have been getting some crashes lately that I never used to have. Any suggestions on whether I should try and hold out for Ivy bridge or can I get something close now. I am looking for a sub $500 processor and was thinking of getting this processor. Currently am running an I7 860 and mostly use the pc for gaming, media serving and internet related stuff.

Why the heck would you get this, isntead of just waiting another month for the new Ivy Bridge parts to drop?

I think initial Ivy Bridge parts are replacements for the 1155 Sandy Bridge parts. So if you want the cheaper entry to the x79 platform, like a lot of people did with the i7 920 and x58, then upgrade later.

This article is really very informative and would like to thank the author of this blog so that we can enrich our existing knowledge.

I've been reading up on this new overclocking method from intel, but I'm still a little confused. Is 4.6 the absolute maximum this chip will go with the multiplier at 43x and the 1.25x strap applied? It seems that everyone reviewing the chip is able to hit that pretty effortlessly.

I expect native support for USB 3.0 and SATA-3 6 GB/sec 5+ ports support from Intel 2012

AMD is already have native support to SATA-3 6 Gb/sec on 6+/- ports then WHY NOT INTEL ???

I dont think core i7-3820 and others are able to do this !!!!!!

 

Ivy bridge will rocks __but I want AVX 2.0 inside ivy bridge for Xtreme level of 3D gaming performance __at my 5760 * 1080 resolution full 3D 

check here Ivy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OPH1Xz1y9H8 

 

its time to kill 2D __3D is not a future __it is our present =--future is windows 8 with Kinect

I guess the dumber you are, the more reliant you are on caps lock and bold lettering.

D'oh! I thought this was Ivy Bridge even though the article CLEARLY states that it is Sandy Bridge E... that means that it does not have a graphics core in it, I would imagine... and is 2011 socket, quad channel memory, 79 chipset, etc.

Having recently built a 2500k and gtx 570 computer, a new processor isn't what I want for Valentine's day. What I really want (or what the console gamer in me wants) is a nice Valentine's day with Twisted Metal.

I like that they're starting where 1155 left off, but I think they should also make a k for like $20 more, to put the 3920 in line with the 2600 and the 3920k in line with the 2600k, price wise.

If they build a k, I will buy into x79.

I wonder how it overclocks. if it's unlocked to overclock

avatar

iceman08

well, if I can get it up to 4.6 on air easily, then it seems like the better buy pricewise as compared to the 2700k or the 2500k. or am I wrong in that line of thinking?

It does sound like a perfect candidate for a K version. K denotes the fact that the processor is unlocked. They also didn't mention the presence of hyperthreading.

No K on the end which means that it's multiplier is locked. Not the one we want to buy. "GEMME A K!" "KKKK" says the crowd...
