    That's very bizarre. Why are the high end chips sticking to 32nm? I'm surprised they can even fit 8 cores on 2011 at 32nm. I know it's got more room but you can't even fit 6 cores on a 1155 at 32nm. Look at some pics without the heatspreader, it's crammed up.

    For the next version of MS Office, that will probably be a minimum system requirement - plus 200gig of RAM and a 30TB SSD. :laugh:

    Look up what FUD is....

    You obviously don't understand what it means.....


    Nice Xeon!

    Have you seen LGA 2011? It's huge.

    Intel has stated the Mainstream boards alla 1155 will get 22nm before the high end. Do i think this is a good idea? HELL YES.. Why? Because it gives us cheap and affordable new tech.

    As for SB-E. The prices are going to be insane.

    400 Dollar Processors to Start
    300 Dollar Boards
    1200 dollar unlocked processors.

    THANKFULLY 2011 will have QPI and not DMI meaning you can overclock the low end chips via the FSB

    5.6GB is the amount of memory being used, not the amount in the system. For the amount in the system you have to look down at the numbers. The total in the system is 65,495MB, or 64GB, or 32GB per processor, which means either 4 8GB sticks per processor or 8 4GB sticks.

    So, yes, it adds up perfectly. And before you say "there is no way it is using 5.6GB, OMB it must be fake!!!111!!!", yes it is entirely possible that it is using 5.6GB.

    Just incase you haven't seen this...

    It's an ES but how much better do you expect BD to get? SB is faster then a 980X in gaming so if BD can't even beat westmere then how do you expect it to beat sandy bridge?

    I'm sorry, I'm not a member of the church of FUD and I don't believe in benches from broken or fake chips.

    Just to quip in here, and ask...

    Does anybody really expect AMD to beat Intel? I mean honestly, beat them clock for clock, core for core?

    I sure as hell don't, and I don't care. I'd still buy whatever suits my needs for the lowest cost, be it Intel or AMD. Those that stick to one camp only because "omgz theer teh fasist" are just stupid.

    Yeah everything is all fake on the internet because everyone is out to make sure amd doesn't beat intel. :laugh:

    Keep telling yourself that aslong as it makes you feel better. Clock for clock BD is not a threat to Sandy Bridge.

    Meh. I just got a Phenom II X4 955BE brand new on Newegg for $113 and overclocked it to 3.9GHz. What Intel processor can you get for that price? A Celeron with 1MB L2 cache? (Actually, an i3-540. Oh boy...)

    AMD may not have the performance, but they sure have the price right. You get what you pay for. Maybe if you have the $1000 to blow on the newest Intel EE processor that gets EOL'd or replaced by a slightly faster part 6 months later, you can have the highest benchmark scores. My PII X4/HD 5770/Crosshair III still plays all my games fine, so I don't need a fancy Intel processor to get the job done.

    You pretty much spent 113 dollars on a processor that was as fast as a Core 2 Quad from 2006. I'm not sure why everyone hates on Intel. They produce excellent tech for excellent prices.

    As for the 540. They overclock to 4.6Ghz on air pretty easily. Whats so bad about that?

    Edit : At 4.6Ghz they game pretty damn well

    Some of us will wait and see because we don't want to make ourselves look stupid if we are wrong.

    I'll be the first to congratulate you if these scores are right on the final chip.

    And where am I going to find a brand new Core 2 Quad and outdated LGA 775 board from 2006 for under $200?

    Also, customers like to have their computers not overclocked, unstable or blowing up within a year. Cheap boards aren't going to like the power draw. (Oh, by the way, what's the power draw and fan noise like on that 4.6GHz i3-540?)

    Who really cares who beats who? I sincerely hope some of you get paid from these companies otherwise these pitiful arguments come off as childish and blind. In the end, it doesn't matter "who beats who", what matters is buying hardware that meets a need at a price that the end-user is willing to pay. Anything else is just insignificant and ignorant.

    First....
    275.33 isn't a AMD Chipset Optimal Driver
    275.50 is

    Driver incompatibility no optimizations = lower scores

    The Zambezi Engineer Sample if you read the Donanimhaber leak
    Already beats the i7 2600K in multithreaded applications

    And the last time I checked most games released after 2006 USE TWO CORES

    And showing off a GPU benchmark to show off CPU Performance is Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt

    If it was a 800x600 0xAF 0xAA then yes it would show CPU Performance but instead you use a 2560x1600 16xAF 8xAA GPU Benchmark to "show" off CPU Performance

    The guy wasn't showing the difference between CPU Performance but the difference between GPU SLI performance

    Where the i7 had a couple years to get plenty of driver tweaks Zambezi doesn't have that advantage

    You should have thought that in the beginning of the thread

    :nutkick:

    July 31st to August 31st is the launch pad for Zambezi just telling

    Not September

    Xeon? Isn't that the CPUs they have in like them expensive workstations that makes large calculations that would take years, in like minutes?
    Think I saw one of them systems, if I recall correctly, they said it had like 10 CPUs in it.
    Looked like a black fridge..

    Your thread title was sort of misleading. I changed it so it's more to the point.
