Re: -= Official Intel P67 / Sandy Bridge / i3 2100 / i5 2500K / i7 2600K Review Threa
Anyone with a Q6600 might take note of the 2x improvement in many of the benchmarks. Then pair that with easy 1GHz OCs while still being able to use all of the power management features and it makes for a real nice setup.
Technically you could have gotten an I7 920 a long time ago for a similar price to the 2600K, but the costs of the boards and memory is what made it expensive. You can probably do a Sandy Bridge upgrade for about $500.
I think the other big seller is getting sata 6gbps and USB 3.0 onboard.
