K-series Sandy, 5GHz on air
#1
Read this article just now:
http://www.semiaccurate.com/2010/10/25/f...verclocked

We still don't know if retail chips can OC that high, not to mention 5GHz is probably unsustainable long term (I'd like to see that pass a few hours IBT) but it's quite promising just the same. Hopefully, the i7-2600K would retail for the same price as the i7-875K.

Bulldozer, oh Bulldozer, wherefore art thou?

Well to not be able to overclock by raising bclk says something is wrong, spending the extra money on the K series might not be cost effective + might be better to stick with the i5 750/760 or i7 860.

5GHz isn't exactly impressive unless its stable, just to mess around i was able to boot into windows on my i7 920 at 4.85v at 5ghz didn't bother with prime or anything cause I know it will crash instantly or maybe even fry my CPU. idle temps of around 60-70 celcius, load temps unknown and don't want to find out.

5ghz prime stable would be good for pcsx2.

Because of increased lithography technology higher clock rates are much more easily stable. The lithography for sandy beach is 22nm as opposed to current processors that are 34 or 45. This decrease in size makes 5ghz seem less unlikely.

Sandy Bridge is still 32nm. Ivy Bridge is the 22 nm die-shrink.

Uh...first of all, it's Sandy Bridge, not Sandy Beach.
Second of all, it's still using 32nm from the current set of i processors.
Further more, Sandy Bridge seems to be a replacement for Lynnfield.
Intel strikes again.

I can't help but feel bad for those who bought Lynnfield while waiting for Sandy Bridge.
It's pretty much Intel's way of trolling everyone.
"Let's throw this new batch of CPU into the market. But wait, let's change the socket from 1156 to 1155. In your face consumers!"
