    Numbers seem impressive enough so far. No point judging until the chips are on the table so to speak. Bulldozer is the one Im watching atm since its its being highly hyped by AMD's PR department. I expect to be disappointed like usual tho. 2011 Will be a very good year if things go to schedule.

    Core i7? A whole new architecture and no real name change. They could have used i8, i6 and i4 to make the Sandybridge chips stand out from the current offerings.
    Don't get me wrong, I can see they've added a 2 to the model number, but to non enthusiasts the upgrade isn't obvious.

    Could pretty much predict those clock speeds couldn't we?
    Tells us very little about how well they perform though.

    Anybody else notice the K on the end of i7-2600K? Possibly an unlocked multiplier. Theres still hope for overclockers!

    Does anyone know what sockets these will appear on? Are they all getting new sockets?

    I hope you're not thinking that Sandy Bridge would be out in a week... more like several months. If you need a new CPU now, then go with the I7 930.

    To everyone who is thinking of commenting on this article...
    :search:
    You are all so very- very welcome.

    Now, on to some REAL discussion. What i'm really missing from this list is a low-end overclockable chip. It looks like Intel is going to only let us overclock the chips that are high-end. That's a real kick in the nuts for the community. I wasn'r really worried when i learned that they are locking the BCLK, limiting OCing to K-models in their lineup. Now that they seemingly intend to limit their lineup of K-models to two high-end parts, i'm a bit :grr: about sandy bridge.

    +1 they need to sort out there naming conventions and NOT have core i7 for multiple sockets this time. actually, i hope they stick to ONE socket only!!!!

    One socket for everything would be a lot better, and changing socket every couple of years does not help, AMD learnt that the hard way.

    +rep for going out of your way and getting links to answer everyone's questions and concerns.

    On the high end models only being overclockable, there's a slim (and I mean very slim) chance that perhaps overclockable models won't actually be too expensive. Currently they're priced so much higher that there's really no point and maybe Intel will see that no one is buying them. Sure extreme overclockers will still eat right out of the palm of their hands regardless of price, but the rest of us will be a little wary of buying a higher priced CPU when we've already got extra cooling to buy. Maybe the low demand will drop prices to a reasonable leve.
