    This is a supposed leak so we cannot say for sure if it is real.

    Anyway,the Core i7 990X is SLOWER than a Core i7 2600K in PCMark Vantage.

    Looks at this article:

    http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/core-i7-990x-extreme-edition-gulftown,review-32126-4.html

    A 3.46GHZ six core Core i7 990X is around 20% faster than a 3.2GHZ Core i7 960 in PCMark Vantage. The Core i7 990X is 8% higher clocked than the Core i7 960 meaning that the additional two cores are adding 12% to the score and on top of this the Core i7 2600K is still faster.

    PCMark Vantage does not scale well beyond 4 cores.

    If this is true than AMD will bring 12 core that will have 6 core running on HT, that's not to bad does it, if they sell 6 shooter now, but again to little to late.

    You can't have low power on 8 core and 4GHz that's true also, that escaped 8 core Xeon just have 1.6GHz that's like P4 gen.

    Bulldozer not out yet, so no proof of real world performance.
    This will be quite interesting. ;)

    for what is probably a bull projection, it amuses me that so many intel fanboys are on this thread shouting the joys of sandybridge, how do you become so company obssesed, i dont care who makes my bits so long as their good value for money and an 8 core(logical) bulldozer is deffinately compareable to an 8core(again logical) SB 2600k they have the same imaginary amount of cores.

    id wager a guess that the initial bulldozers are going to be superceded very quickly ie before 2012 by the later enhanced edditions anyway which being rev 2 will be much better again so il probably be using my q6600 till xmass

    and im no fanboy but i will not tollerate intels now yearly if not 6 monthly socket swapping at all rgardless of how good a particular design of chip is (SB does look to be good except for pciex lanes)

    I cant wait until Bta gets the real numbers on the FX so we stop hounding him. I bet he will do this dance here.....

    Well, Sandy Bridge is an amazing performing platform, it's tough not to give them credit. I do dislike the socket changes they do all the time, but considering Intel keeps beefing up their chips and exceeding exceptions most of time, it's not really much of a hassle from that perspective. I actually moved away from i7/X58 over to Phenom II 1055t/880g because the i7's were to beastly for what i needed.
