Pulled from another forum. The source quotes 6 and 8 core processors for 2011 starting at 480+ Euro's. The quad's start out at 250 Euro.

480 Euro = 675.98 Usd
250 Euro = 352.07 Usd

Details of the first three Intel Sandy Bridge-E Processors have been revealed. The Sandy Bridge-E (LGA 2011) platform will replace the older LGA1366 Core i7 Processors. According to our previous roadmap details (here), Sandy Bridge-E will fall under “Extreme” and “Premium Performance” branding.


The “Extreme” variants will be 6-8 Core models with 480 €+ Price range while the Premium CPU’s will come with 4-6 Cores and fall somewhere near the 250 € price. Intel also plans to release 8-12 Core variants of Sandy Bridge-E Processors but those will be kept limited to Server usage until desktop release is required.

The Details reveal Core i7 3000 series badge for the new Sandy Bridge-E Processors which makes them the 3rd generation Core of the Sandy bridge Family. The Core i7 3960X Extreme Edition is a Six Core model with 12 threads and Hyper Threading Enabled with 15MB L3 Cache, It’ll be stock clocked at 3.30Ghz which can turbo upto 3.90Ghz.

Next up is the Core i7 3930K (Unlocked Multiplier) which is also a 6 Core variant with 12 threads with a clock speed 100mhz lesser than the i7 3960X of 3.20Ghz and turbo of 3.80Ghz. L3 Cache is also cut down to 12MB. Last up is the Core i7 3820 which is a premium usage oriented model 4 Cores and 8 threads, Stock speed of 3.60 which can turbo to 3.80Ghz and 10MB L3 Cache, Overclocking is limited because of locked multiplier.

All CPU’s will feature quad-channel DDR3 integrated memory controllers (IMCs), PCI-e 3.0 Compatibility and multiple x16 PCI-e lanes. More details on Intel’s Sandy Bridge-E CPU’s below:

:banghead: Why do people still convert euros to dollars? It does not work that way. (not mad at you, only at the fact so many people do that)

Here's the actual prices for a 2600k:

US: $315 Intel Core i7-2600K Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Tu...

EU: 284 € http://www.alternate.es/html/product/Procesadores_Socket_1155/Intel(R)/Core_y_trade_i7-2600K/483760/?tn=HARDWARE&l1=Procesadores+(CPU)&l2=Sobremesa&l3=Socket+1155

Was just throwing it out there bro. :laugh:
Yeah, I know, it's just that making the conversion is completely misleading*. If they will trully start at 480 €, you can assume $500-ish on North America, not $700-ish.

It just gets to my nerves. :ohwell:

* Plus remembers me how badly we are shafted every single time. :laugh:

If the lower end 6 core is going to be around 699 then i'll be a very happy man.

Really?, that's still very expensive to most. Hell even $400 for a CPU is too much for me. lol

I think that like in most of latest high-end platform releases, they are going with a $300, $500, $1000 approach or something similar.

A lower-end 6 core at much more than $500 would look horrible in the perf/price department compared to the 2600k. But I'm mostly basing it on previous releases. It worked for them so why change the strategy? The only way I see it changing is to lower prices, and only if Bulldozer is competitive with SB E.

Agreed. I'm not sure why Intel didn't give 1155 a 6 core K model with no HT for 599.99. I would have bought that right up.

I have no issues with bclk ocing going away. And to be honest the price doesn't really bother me that much. Once AMD releases something even remotely close in performance Intel will chop the price down, but until that happens, why not snag upwards of $1000 per CPU from early adopters with deep pockets? I think the current SB CPU's were excellently priced, so if Intel wants to dump a bunch of super expensive CPU's for people willing to spend that much money, more power to them.

Including a PCI-Express 3.0 root complex that gives out two x16 links to drive graphics.
Very nice Intel. +1 for Intel.

Prices usually works at 480 Euro to 480 USD or close to this even though the Euro is worth a lot more on paper and in reality even with half of EU wanting to go belly up.

Why would anyone pay USD480 for the USD310 bracket product ?
"Q9550/i7-920/i7-2600K/i7-3930K"
i7-3960X is supposed to replace the i7-990X for the same USD1000.

Just because Intel created a USD500 bracket does not mean that anyone gives a flying :confused: about this bracket or recognizes that it exists.
It is not like the USD500 bracket items is a laptop 100C cpu that can be used in a desktop and properly overclocked with decent cooling or something special.

What is up with the 15M level 3 cache on 6/12 cores ?

The CPU is starved on the Cache side

Small L1s, Small L2s, and a shared BIG L3

i7 2600K
L1 32KBx4
L2 256KBx4
L3 8MB/4

i7-3930K
L1 32KBx6
L2 256KBx6
L3 12MB/6

I don't get why the i7-3820 isn't a K or an X Processor

LGA 2011 first tier LETs make it be above a K product and below a K product trololololol

i7-3930K LGA 2011
i7-3820 LGA 2011 TROLOLOLOLOLOL
i7 2600K LGA 1155

I would wait for the release regardless(to see if what is true and what is not) but sometimes these leaks on the Intel side are mostly fact

i7-3960
i7-3820

Should both be extreme products(since there is a disparity between the L3 Caches of K and X products 10MB/4 15MB/6 both come out to be 2.5MB per core)

Intel Core i7-975 Extreme Edition Bloomfield 3.33G...
4C Extreme
Intel Core i7-990X Extreme Edition Gulftown 3.46GH...
6C Extreme

It's probably not a K so it can just get dropped into Cyberpower PC's, or Alienware's. Any of those well known custom-build companies would love to have those to encourage people to spend more on getting a pre-overclocked higher-priced setup. At least that's how I see it. That or they just wanted something as an entry-level product to the platform...

Its not cache starved at all. When you compare Bloomfield against westmere which had 12mb of L3 clock fir clock there were no differences in performance

Sandy Bridge is

Nehalem -> Bloomfield
Westmere -> Gulftown

Nehalem -> Westmere
is a die shrink


As shown in this

You will see on Sandy Bridge the increase of L3 Cache is a booster in performance

The 10MB and 15MB will out perform the 8MB and 12MB products

and Nehalem/Westmere doesn't have 10MB 15MB products
So you can't tell

Yeah, see? That's how they get you.

You pay twice as much for 50% more cores because of all the other extras, like four DDR3 slots.

If eVGA ever come out with an SR-3 capable of dual-8-core Xeons, I'm in.

Otherwise, I'm waiting for Ivy Bridge.

It is 33% more cores

A $90 premium isn't bad on that core increase

Unlocked, PCI-e 3.0, Intel name and much more

It's a done deal, and I need to change my system specs

What do you do on your PC?

and at what resolution?

What CPU are you using?

It's 50% more cores. 6/4 = 1.5 x 100 = 150%

And I don't know where you get the $90 increase either. The cheaper one is 4 cores/8T. The 6 cores will probably start at $500. $200+ more than 4 cores.

Now if it's worth it at all depends on everyone's wallets. On a perf/price basis it is never worth the premium of highest-end CPUs.

I game and do the odd bit of photgraphic work and video work - rather rare at the moment...

Minimum resolution is 2560 x 1600, sometimes 8064 x 1600

I have two systems, both with i7 920's in at 4.2Ghz each with HT turned on and 6Gb's of ram. If you would like anything more, please say!
