i just want the 3770k just for overclocking :laugh:

when not benching i run everything stock ;)
Yeah, couldn't care less of USB 3.0 support, maybe PCIe 3.0 but we are far from saturating a full 16x bus

Good point to pick such a chip for overclocking, should hit some insane frequencies with the new node :toast:

as long as my 2500k can hold 4.9Ghz stable - I will not bow down to Ivy Bridge!!

These prices please me but also do confuse. Why do they charge so much for SB-E if these are the upgrade to SB?

Because these are mainstream chips like SB. SB-e is the enthusiast line. They will have IB-e to replace SB-e.

I think you can upgrade your BIOS and make your mobo Ivy compatible, as long as it's a UEFI BIOS. Pretty nice prices, though they won't outperform Sandy clock-for-clock, only in power consumption and overclocking.

That was what I had heard from the beginning. Any SB mobo will be able to support IB as long as it is running UEFI.

At this point, I figure it's gotta be partly a marketing/business decision though the specifics of how and why not advertising 4Ghz plus procs is beneficial to them are not exactly clear to me.

I was just thinking about that again this morning after that Northwood thread; how top end factory clock speed is virtually unchanged in the last decade. We know architecture matters much more but still...
Intel probably doesn't want to sell 4 GHz processors because they'd have to spend more on the heatsinks. It might also be a safety net in case they pull a Bulldozer and release a new architecture with lower IPC than the previous one. Then they can just sell them at 4.5 GHz and won't have to worry about the older processors being faster.

Looks like Intel is giving us some great prices with great performance !
They have no choice because this is where AMD is going to compete, in Price/Performance. The benefit for AMD is Socket AM3+ is going to be extended past 2013. This time next year is going to be very interesting.

Thing is AMD is not really competing all that much . Not that they are not competing just not as well . And with prices like this Intel just stuck AMD again !

AMD is no longer going to try to compete with Intel.

i thought the prices will be +1000$ for the 3770K
well that's a good news :toast:
That price is for Socket 2011 CPUs... there are more reasonable... and the performance isn't that different (well, not worth 700USD more).

Im sad cause I have learned recently that Ivy bridge will only work with new Z77,P77,H77 chipsets :(
That's a load of BS. Just check the website of Mobo Vendors.

you can ask btarunr he has posted many news about the official intel Roadmap for socket 1155 and they show that the chipset Z68 to P67 will support Ivy Bridge after a Bios/UEFI upgrade.
