holy crap. Looks like it was done on near default voltage too. O_O

Damn that is pretty sweet. I hope the retails can clock like that.

Is that a dual proc installation at 32 threads!?! That's CRAZY man, I hope they have one of those 20mg cache procs available at a decent price, not 1500 bucks.

SB is supposed to offer better than i7 920 performance for less $$ so we shall see

Where did you see 32 threads?

The results are from a midrange desktop CPU.
Nothing fancy.

Sandy Bridge is not multi-processor capable. You have to wait for Sandy Bridge E Xeons DP/MP models for that.

The text above the screenshot that v3rninater is talking about (above) says "teaser SS" which I am guessing means "teaser screen shot". If that is the case, then the picture could very well be a dual or quad processor server board.

That's what I'm saying slawter...32 threads is mind blowing...lol!

If you think that's mind blowing, check out the SS of Cinebench 11.5 doing 32-thread rendering. :headexplode:

No wonder Intel is locking down overclocking except on the more expensive 'K' processors.

Honestly, I don't see a need to OC any more. This 920, stock, is far more CPU power than I need. I think when gaming it might get to 50%, but anything else it stays below 20% CPU usage.

Looking forward to this winter's retail edge Big Deal though. Whatever mobo+CPU combo they offer I'm planning to pick up. Should make a nice server.

When is SB due out? Would be awesome if I could snag one- even if only low end.

That is true for the most part. But games like Bad Company 2 need as much processor power as it can get its hands on. Overclocking makes a difference in this case.

I don't own the game, though I've heard most everybody whom plays it claim the same thing.

So maybe I should state that for now my CPU is far more than I presently need. :lol:

1.4V default voltage is under 1.0V

+1 I never overclock.

Most likely Intel will launch Sandy Bridge at CES 2011 in early January.
Sandy Bridge E will follow in H2 2010.

Such a shame Intel is introducing the new tech with low- and midrange products :thumbdwn:

agree screw this lga1155 lol, bring on lga2011 and true 8core mofos :D

I'm thinking this might be the next upgrade for me. I've gone higher core count the last two times, but given that a lot of games still only thread 2 cores at best I don't see the need to go above 4 cores.

Anything over 4ghz on air sounds great to me! :)

I have a 920 and most likely will be skipping Sandy Bridge. I'm just hoping I can pick up a cheap and faster i7 next year as they start to lower the prices and phase them out (like if the 960 drops to $200). I don't overclock.

Since my next big upgrade is gonna be 100% new hardware, I will probably go with a 2500K if I decide to go with Intel.

But, I'm still curious about how well Bulldozer will perform. I want benchies dammit!

Yeah I'm going to see how bulldozer does as well. I'll probably skip the first gen of bulldozer and SB because I just got this x6 and it demolishes everything I throw at it.

I want 6 RAM slots if not no sandy for me.. no seriously why did they go back to 4 slots?

This here. The 920 offers all the performance I need and then some. :)

Because Sandy Bridge is only the low end/mid range upgrade.
The Socket 1366 successor will follow later with Sandy Bridge E including PCIe 3.0, 8 Core CPUs, Tri-Channel memory...

I really hate that Intel is doing this :(

I'm ok with it... let the product mature a bit before revising the chips for high end...

I'd hate to buy the i7 920 for example and miss the refresh and better overclockers like the i7 930....

Plus that gives me some time to really feel like i need to upgrade before i get rid of this Q6600

I will be going X6 soon anyways. It seems to be more than enough for games, and that's all I am concerned with. :o
