And that's a sad thing to say about a brand new generation of CPUs... This is what annoys me about this release.
How are you disappointed when only the low-end of the Sandy Bridge family has thus far been revealed/released?
We still haven't seen the performance figures for the socket 1365 and 2011 procs. Maybe your expectations are simply unjustified at the moment.
Given the segment of the market the benched procs have been announced for, the performance is pretty good.
