Hi all, Just a quick heads up that Tech Report have a full detailed review of the i7 3960X online. It is a bit of a beast. http://techreport.com/articles.x/21987 The video encoding benchmarks when overclocked are simply staggering. The power consumption is also simply staggering (when overclocked) but at least it can justify it, unlike Bulldozer. Looking forward to Bit's review now. No doubt my 2500k is quivering in the corner... EDIT: This does bode well for the significantly cheaper i7 3930K. You only lose 100Mhz off the turbo clock and 3Mb of L2 cache which will probably make bugger all difference in the real world. EDIT 2: Prices also up on Overclockers: £499.99 for the i7-3930K £799.99 (special offer) - £839.99 for the i7 3960X The 3960X does seem somewhat pointless unless the processors are specially binned for high overclocks.
