QUOTE:-

The Core i5-2500K amazed us with its stock-speed performance it even beat the epic 750 Intel Core i7-980X Extreme Edition in the image editing and multi-threaded video encoding tests. Only the higher multi-tasking score of the i7-980X prevented the i5-2500K from being faster overall than the mighty 6-core super-CPU in everyday applications.

Conclusion
The Sandy Bridge lineup gives us some of the easiest conclusions to write that we've ever come across: the new range of Intel CPUs renders almost every other processor redundant and pointless. Only if you need incredible performance in multi-threaded applications should you look beyond the Core i5-2500K for your next CPU.

Wow......... Intel really did it this time...... AMAZING......



Guru3d

Now I admit it, I was rendered speechless by the performance of what initially was expected to be a mid-range series processors. Now the Core i7 2600K at just over 300 USD (312.oo) is not exactly a mid-range price, it however is and will remain the fastest quad-core processor currently available on the market.

When a product is good, we say it's good, flat-out and simple, that's the Core i5 2500K alright. The Core i7 2600K however is nearing perfection.

These chips are just super super pieces of kit...no doubt. Obviously, its different strokes for different folks. I mean I skipped a few generations of tech to specifically buy this CPU if it was up to speed, and offered a much needed increase in performance over my aging (albeit very capable) Quad 9450.....If you have just upgraded then is it worth it...meh prolly not.

But I for one am delighted these chips are on the market....I just cant see AMD getting close to these chips anytime soon.

It seems to me we are lagging behind in the consumer CPU area. I expected more out of Sandy Bridge.

You guys do realize that we go through this every time a new architecture comes out, right?

"OMG, [insert codename here] blows everything away! It will revolutionize the world!"

I dont think so McFly....I was never blown away by i7, it was the reason why I never upgraded.....the performance just was not there...for the price outlay. But for someone from the likes of Guru 3D (who are always on the money...no bullshit) to say what he was saying about performance per core does not happen every day.

I know the benchmarking is not real world performance but its the only way we have of measuring raw power and for the i7 2600K (overclocked) to only be a fraction slower then the i7 980X which is still crazy money....is pretty darn IMPRESSIVE.

I am just waiting for the mobo's to start to appear, I already seen a review of the P67 "Sabertooth" and it was pretty impressive already with the early bios.

Are you serious....have you any idea how fast even the basic "Sandy Bridge" CPU is compared to both our CPU's?

Cant think what an EXTREME model would/will be like? This is not your average 10% faster at best scenario propaganda bulls**t.

You expected more? Their mid range offering just about spanks their highest end of the last gen, and 500 cheaper....

Exactly what were you expecting? It to solve the riddle of the universe? Find the cure for cancer? Communicate with amoeba? Seriously like WTF?

Maybe when a CPU comes out that will build its own PC, torrent its own damn movies and program its own code you'll be happy.

That will the Neuro-Net processor from Cyberdyne Systems.

And... AMD has won the contract for developing chips for them.

Aye those CPU's sound bliss. But the reviewer probably got his first shag... or a big payrise,
or even got the breakfast under his bosses desk that day, hence the over delightful review!
Well you never know lol... Getting some nice things out of the blue can change a review
haha!!

I was thinking more about the weeks before Conroe came out.

Anyway, I'm not "blown away." Yes, it's faster and cheaper, but that's what the next generation of hardware is supposed to be ... wouldn't make much sense to release something slower. :P

Looks evolutionary, not revolutionary, to me.

As much as I really really would love the upgrade to quad core, I think the right time to buy would be when they move over to DDR4.

I'm not easily impressed. You know there is technology that blows thiss**t away and we don't have access to it.
