I suggest that both of you put each other on ignore and leave each other alone. Nobody wants to see this and if it continues something will be done about it. I'll leave it to you two to behave like adults and cease this bickering on the forum.

Thank you.

CPU-Z says 4 cores, just with that it's already a lot more impressive than that FX record OC that turned off 7 of the 8 cores.
Click the link in my post 8.1x with 8 cores enabled and dual channel memory. Which is more enabled than this chip...

I hope Intel will improve platforms little faster with new features.
Example now is time and for Intel fans to think on more than 4 cores. HT help but better 6 cores.
Than I decide to wait Haswell Extreme. More and more games would be better on 6 core, platform stay and for next 2-3 years better to think on that way.
Other things is real progress not instructions, that's talking about SATA Express, DDR4 and with some 6 core that's real good stuff for gaming in next years. For me is better waiting that than now sell and upgrade on similar performance.

Still running my i7 960 @ 4 ghz.. Gimme a reliable 5 ghz + and I might upgrade...
But it's not making me feel particularly urgent..
Still nice though.
