IB-E has always been speculated to contain about 8 cores since the SB-E was first dropping. Now it looks like IB-E could have a core count of 10 IF the shipping Xeon contains 12 and Intel continues their tradition of cutting 2 cores out of the i7 package. I also do some light video editing liek a guy above(that shit will devour your CPU regardless of what you throw at it) but as far as professional stuff its mostly photo editing, i also CAD cut vinyl and a few other things with my comp. Right now im still using a OLD E6600 and its killing me
I want my to next computer i buy to be as much of an overkill as it possibly can be. I cant even imagine how much more comfortable my workflow will be with all the GD programs i have to use with a 10 core proc that can HOPEFULLY handle a healthy dose of OCing.
And yes i game on my computer as well and yes i will find a good reason for all 10 cores so dont tell me you dont need it. If i can tab out of BF3 or what ever other game into an environment where ALL of my production apps are already aroused without any kind of lag, work for a while, then just jump back into a game without closing anything or worrying about resources i would be happy. I want to be able to run a deep virus scan on all my drives, a windows update, a system restore point, play my games and have my programs all opened at the same time >XD
And no im not 12 years old -_- I just feel like writing like one because hardware makes me giddy
ALL YOUR CORES ARE BELONG TO US
