Silly OC's don't impress me... But WOW! Those power consumption figures are phenomenal...
Looks like these cpu's are running into potential problems,just seen the notification on scans website that all processor sales are on hold.
They impress me!
Please check out this report issued yesterday has Intel got it wrong i was just about to buy
and found out the following
I'd love to see temperatures figures with these processors. I'm especially interested in temperatures reached with the i7 2600k OC @ 4.5 and Gelid Tranquillo cooler (january buyer's guide recommendation).
Of course the best would be a "best cooler for Sandy Bridge" showdown to see how old coolers cope with these new beauties xD
I have a question about the gaming performance charts in the review, in particular X3: Terran Conflict. I'm hoping to get a qualified answer here, but if needed I could also email whoever wrote the article - if I knew where to email.
Compare the 2600K @ 3.4Ghz to 2600K @ 4.85Ghz. The overclock gives 24% higher average fps. My question is this: is this increase in fps due to higher GPU utilization, implying that the GPU is not fully utilized at stock processor clocks; or is it due to simply the CPU doing it's work faster, implying that computation that counts towards framerate is shared between the CPU and the GPU?
