    If they weren't posted, I don't think it really matters.

    The point is that it was news then and now it's not. I guess it is "news" to people who didn't know about it, but then again, people don't know about a lot of things. Although, I have to say this news wasn't very exciting when it was first released.

    Not agreeing with you =/= Trolling.

    I can kinda understand his point of view, but fact is, that we're not a Computer Hardware news site, so it's acceptable to stay behind a little in things like those [​IMG]

    As for the main topic, I was going to buy a Sandy Bridge E (LGA2011) for my next computer, but Ivy Bridge with its Tri-gate technology sounds so awesome [​IMG] Too bad it's gonna be on LGA1155, so too few PCIe lanes for my likings. But USB3.0 directly driven by the chipset is a good thing though... Ah, choices, choices! :/

    Gonna be hard competition this summer with AMD releasing Bulldozer and Bobcat chips shortly.

    You can't honestly believe that. Sure, it might make them slightly more competitive in the marketplace, and able to sell through for many business applications outside of consumer PCs (due to cheaper price per unit), but eat the i7 alive? No.

    Problem with that though is once the ivy bridge comes out and you get round to buying it they'll announce (unofficially) another one, then you'll want to wait and buy that instead.

    I've just bought a laptop with an old i5 because it was about £200 cheaper. Still expecting it to last me through Uni.

    "Tri-Gate" must just help them shrink the die. Lower power better performance is definitely good though. We'll be squeezing more out of laptops very soon.

    Seeing as how the current i7's only beat out the X6 line in the gaming performance department, I would be inclined to disagree that AMD can't top Intel in that portion of computing. The Bulldozer chips are going to be priced around the same as the i7 processors, though the top end 8 core at 320 bucks is slated to have a 4.2Ghz clock speed with Turbo Core active (3.8Ghz stock). Even if single threaded applications are done better on the i7 over Bulldozer chips, AMD will continue to be superior with multi threaded applications.

    Seems the Atom will have healthy competition at last though. Gonna be an interesting summer for computer hardware competition.

    I think ivy bridge sounds much better than sandy bridge.

    People, stop drooling over new and better production processes and amounts of cache and clocks; wait for some benchmarks instead.


    Thank you, and good day.

    I love my i5 2500k, nothing bottlenecks my CPU.

    Well, it's that they've promised 30% performance increase on same clocks, and well... that's some MASSIVE improvement. Also, native USB3.0 support looks good.

    I know, I know. When I built my current rig there were the First Generation Core iXs coming out, but I ignored them and just went the 775 way. Best choice ever.

    Except an HD6990 Crossfire or GTX 580 SLI setup.
