That is going to be one hell of an expensive processor!
Just what I've been waiting for
Will it run crysis on high??? (sorry someone had to say it)
Impressive, very impressive.
"but dont worry the benchmarks will run 12 threads soon" not bothered about benchmarks tbh, real life? cant see it being useful for a home setup for a while.
Question - how was 3-way SLI done on it when gigabyte insist on putting the last PCI-e slot at the bottom so that you cant use a double slot card there? Was it done outside a case?
You can get cases that allow for that - my Stacker has enough space and any E-ATX cases would too.
my 840 Classic supports E-ATX but can't fit a dual slot card in the lowest slot... beginning to think I bought the wrong case now :/
oh right - is the nda up then?
really? that is slightly fail if i am being honest
Its a 2.4ghz chip, the retail one according the the "propsed" intel road mad is a chip called the X980 thats clocked at 3.33ghz. I should expect 5ghz of goodness from that chip is not more
No, the NDA is still valid, which is why I can't you what speed we've got our later stepping Gulftowns overclocked to...
5ghz will not be hard imo
the clarkdales can do it so this will do it
24/7 i am guessing around 4.4/4.5ghz being the top end clock just like the bloomfields
if the nda is still up, why do people persist in posting results?
what happens when intel decide not to send out ES chips because of NDA breaches
Better start saving up.
If it wasn't you, it would be another one xD
Now now, since crysis isn't much cpu, let's save it for the fermentation card (it's all gases)
any case that has 8 pci slots will support 3-way SLI (antec 902 does but the bigger brother 1200 does not, TK Armor+ has 10)
depends what you do at home! & while the domestic market is large, there are other markets out there that are also profitable for Intel that could use such tech right now.
Damn, the 840 only has 7 dispite being huge! Not chuffed about that!
I sense a mod moment coming up. Where's my hammer?
Aw bless, 4GHz....
Nice board but I prefer ASUS
Try 180x25 for 4.5GHz for benching, 4.25 for 24/7 stable on good air for a Dream PC beating CPC bench score.
