Good read. Can It Stomp An Eight-Core Xeon?

Tom benches the flagship 6-core SBE as well as the even more expensive (and multiplier locked) 8-core Xeon chip. Loads of benchmarks to immerse yourself into. Hey, all you 1155/6 owners, you can now officially be jealous of the us few (and far between) LGA2011 owners.

Not really, most of my daily programs are mostly I/O bound.

Yeah, just between you and I, I'm coming down off my SB-E high. The reason being is that my 3770k rig can slice threw the thickest of shit with nearly the same ease. Makes me really ponder if IB-E will be the last of the "Extreme" procs we see. For those connoisseurs of 6, 8, and 10 cores the answer will be Xeon. For the rest of us, 97% or so, the IPC improvements of Haswell will the bees knees. Hovering around 3.5-4.5MHz is more than the mainstream will ever truly need. OC'ing may go by the wayside too, the new rage will be UC'ing with insane IPC performance.
