Wow! Quad core 35W? If less than 300 will be a great deal.
Well not quad core but quad threaded. Either way though that is impressive. I can see Sandy Bridge will bring the performance of Nehalem + the improvements of Sandy Bridge into nettops.

I love it that Intel is keeping with the unlocked (non-extreme, non-big budget) chips. Unless Bulldozer really surprises me with awesome/competetive performance, an Intel CPU will be in my next build.

I'm gonna look up more on AVX, first time I heard about it I was excited as I was under the impression it would make lesser L2 cache chips preform better per MHz. I hope I'm not dissapointed.

Don't think I'll have money to keep upgrading like this:(. I'll probably be sticking with my i7 for a long time, i just hope this isn't a huge leap in performance over it (all i really do is gaming anyways). Because then, i know i won't feel the impulse to upgrade.

Sorry if it's gonna be a noob post, but are these 32nm or 28nm?

Seems pretty pointless to me. I atleast am not expecting a big jump in performance, like when Intel went from C2D and C2Q to Core i7, i5 and i3. Just a slightly better "GPU", since as we all know how much Intel sucks on graphics. The TDP seems to be in the same category as LGA1156 processors.

Both LGA1155 and LGA2011 is just to milk more money from the buyers. LGA1155 doesn't have that many advantages over LGA1156, and LGA2011 is pointless just because the fact is, that modern software can't even utilize the full potential of the platforms we have now. Home users and gamers don't need 8-cores and quad-channel memory, especially if it costs a fortune.

BTW, I know this is totally unrelated, but I can't get over the fact, that they named the platform "Cougar Point".

Very true.

This sounds like the perfect upgrade for me. New MB/CPU/RAM to fuel the fire! Looking to jump on the Quad-Core bandwagon finally. Those TDP numbers look pretty good considering first generation i7 Quads were at a steady 130. I definitely wouldn't say that this new gen doesn't have any advantages over current i7, to say that would be....well.....a little ignorant.

frome the sounds of it they wont overclock like mad well at least 1155 wont. i wont be doing this lineup ill wait for the 1156 chips to hit rock bottom and milk them. lwets hope intel dont sky775 us 1156 and 1366 guys. meaning lets hope they actually keep new cpu's for these sockets.

interested to see what the price premium of the S and T models will be, hopefully they won't be as ridiculous as i5-750S

At this point we're not entirely sure what differentiates Core i5 24xx from Core i5 25xx, frequencies don't seem to be it. Perhaps there's an instruction set or a feature that's enabled on the 25xx.
Looking at the table, doesn't the i5 2400 have a clock speed of 3.1GHz/3.4Ghz Turbo, while the i5 2500 seems to have a clock speed of 3.3GHz/3.7GHz Turbo, unless I'm reading the chart wrong.

Both LGA1155 and LGA2011 is just to milk more money from the buyers. LGA1155 doesn't have that many advantages over LGA1156, and LGA2011 is pointless just because the fact is, that modern software can't even utilize the full potential of the platforms we have now. Home users and gamers don't need 8-cores and quad-channel memory, especially if it costs a fortune.
Agreed. If it wasn't for the fact that I got insane deals on the i7 mobo and processor I currently run, I'd still be running a 775 rig.

I wonder if it's possible to have a CPU with both unlocked bclk AND lower TDP :D

I know I will be upgrading, still using my P45-based PC with E8400. This will rock for me. I'm happy I didn't buy a new AMD stuff (was in fact because of lack of 32nm CPUs).

Not coming. The last CPU Intel releases/has released for 1366 is the i7-970, which is a hexa-core, but it's nothing but cheap. Retails for about 800€ here in Europe.
