    Sandy Bridge E

    Since we have all the AMD nerds here talking about Bull-don't-er ( ), we need a thread for discussion of Intel's next high-performance chips.

    A Turkish website is reporting that Intel will release the Sandy Bridge E chips on November 15.

    Kevin,

    You do know of this sites history right?

    Re: Sandy Bridge E

    So that means no discussion of Intel processors allowed? Besides, I'm just giving you guys a hard time.

    Disappointed Intel is switching to LGA 2011 with SBE. Nice thing about AMD is that they stick to sockets much longer.

    Not at all. What's an E, half an EE?

    lol. Don't know if you're joking. If you're not, Sandy Bridge E is the next generation of SB chips, coming Q4 of this year, supposed to be high performance . Current SB models have been low to middle to high middle end chips. We will see the return of the $1,000 "Expensive" Edition processors this fall.

    Thanks, I was joking, but I didn't know. Intel is especially confusing to me. They seem to be marketing 6 types (architectures) of chips at the same time, and like AMD the #'s make no sense.

    Ahh, to the days of Px(clock speed) or to a younger brain!!

    Try deciphering ARM, makes x86 look like child's play.

    well they're pretty much all the same sandy bridge architecture at this point (except atom), but the differentiation between chip lines (celeron, pentium, i3, i5, i7) is somewhat fuzzy.. some have turbo, some have HT, different cache sizes, different iGPU's, different virtualization features etc etc.. its hard to pin down so basically you have to just go on price points.

    SB-E (E= enthusiast) will be the chips that slot in above the 2600k (a $300 chip) with quad channel, probably hex core etc all with the IPC improvements that SB brought over westmere to replace the current i7-970 and 990x chips. They'll probably be monsters but extremely expensive. Not only the chips, but the whole platform will be extremely pricey (incl mobos). I dont see myself moving there anytime soon

    Yes, Intel went from native hex core with Gulftown, then back to native quad core w/ SB. Then back to hex core with SB-E. Kinda goofy.

    not when you consider the price points. the westmere/gulftown hexes occupy a much higher price point than SB. SB wasn't the replacement for gulftown, but for bloomfield. You have to figure that the die size on a hex version of SB would probably be like, 30% (guestimate) higher than the current die, which would require the requisite price increase to maintain margins. SB-E will be larger than that due to the quad channel IMC and be the true replacement for the gulftown hexes

    some preview stuff. I'm not impressed. It appears that they decided to cut almost all of the features that were actual differentiations from SB. Now its just SB +2 cores, pointless quad channel memory and a few useless PCI-E lanes. the 2 cores will be nice but they probably could have done that on 1155 and saved themselves the trouble of the whole LGA2011 platform

    Waiting for IB is probably in my future

    have you seen this?

    "due to leaked information that Intel will launch upgraded Sandy Bridge E C2 CPUs and upgraded chipsets only two months after"

    thats some bs and i was going to sell my high end system soon

    Re: Sandy Bridge E

    well i think my 45nm i7920 could say the same thing.
    i'd want ivybridge but i havn't seen a roadmap where socket 2011 is included.
