Yes thats right how can you have a choice to turn it on if they dont tell you it even exists. I had to tell you to google it remember. This swicth regardless of what they tell you will be on and can be used to kill your pc whether your pc is on or not. To fully understand what your up against go to Infowars.com you dont have much time left to wake up.

So what these chip's have a kill switch.  I googled it and  that sounds like a great idea. Although not fool proof cause it seems all you have to do is load another chip into the motherboard and then u can access the data.  Then again no security system is fool proof.  if you don't like the kill switch idea just don't activate it.  The switch itself is more aligned with modle users then home pc users.  maybe you misunderstand the idea there.

After you google sandy bridge kill switch and find out what I said in my other post is true ask your self why they dont promote the idea or tell us its in the new chip. they will tell us when they no longer can hide it by then you all will yell baaahhhhh! and get used to the Idea. We dont need this kill switch on our personal pc whats next automatic feeders installed in our houses!!

If I remember correctly, the same thing happened before 1156 launched.

Seriously Maximum PC? You couldn't tell from the color of the box, Intel's extreme control over such scenarios, and the last fiasco with fake Core i7's coming from NewEgg?

 

This is a scam, plain and simple. Don't report bullshit please, this is why i unsubscribed after 2 years.

Color of the box? Besides the color saturation and contrast on the picture being way over blown the box looks fine. And Intels "extreme control" didn't stop places over seas from putting the 1156 chips on sale. I highly doubt this is bullshit. News worthy... maybe not. Its just some company trying to make headlines by flashing their new product before they are allowed to release it. If these chips are due out in January in full force, it isn't a stretch to believe they have already been shipping to retailers, especially ones that need to clear customs.

You haven't subscribed because you can get the articles for free in the web. And most reports in tech are usually rumors. So why are you crying foul on this article?

I want Sandy Bridge! I'm itching for an upgrade, ever since my current system seems unable to boot windows properly with a graphics card, even after RMAing the graphics card and reinstalling windows. worst part: messed up with no graphics drivers.

I wonder what the C.S. by the 2600K stands for, probably coming soon. Hopefully soon enough for the official launch on Jan 5th
