Default Re: -= Official Intel P67 / Sandy Bridge / i3 2100 / i5 2500K / i7 2600K Review Threa

When the 920 is similarly clocked (or any i7/i5 @ 3.4Ghz for example), the differences are negligible and certainly not worth the hassle of a completely new build IMHO. This certainly is not an X58 killer by any means. That will come in Q2.

For Qxxxx users, this is a great upgrade, but unless you absolutely have to have the latest and greatest, there is little to recommend this over a similarly clocked 920 (or other 9xx) in terms of performance.

It's a shame we have to wait for the real next gen stuff. This is just yesterday's performance today with some enhancements and very attractive pricing (I'm not interested in power consumption, on chip GPU etc).
