    I believe it when there tested here on TPU, until then im not going to jump to any conclusions.

    LOL @ the integrated GPU results, thats just terrible.

    Ya, most of us have seen Sandy Bridges performance numbers, definitely an impressive line of chips performance wise.:)

    Only problem im having with them is the limitation with overclocking in terms of not having a lot of diversity, they designed it to a point where certain chips are better performing and only almost full featured only when using them on a certain chipset.

    Sandy Bridge Reviews are all over the place, and all of them show how impressive these chips are:

    they are impressive chips, and if intel had half a brain they woulda done it right. but marketing wise it sort of makes sense
