I have been secretly and quietly hoping that this would launch either in December or January. Through the Intel Retail Edge program I was hoping to pick up their entry-level SNB-E and mobo for dirt cheap... but it's not a huge concern of mine as my present rig is already more than what I need. Worst case scenerio I'll just do some major upgrades to my present rig to help it last a bit longer. Already been sporting it for nearly two years now, only upgrades being 2GB more RAM, the video card, and my SSDs. What's a bit longer?

This would put SNB-E and Ivy Bridge even closer together, only a few months apart. And without a desktop 8 Core Extreme Edition, SNB-E will be a though sell with Ivy Bridge just around the corner. 22nm, USB 3.0 and TB are important advantages in this case.
Assuming Ivy Bridge isn't pushed back as well...

Well, that's it. To show a company that I don't like their strategy, I will support their competitor. Bring on 8 core Zambezi!

Heh, they're still pretty close together. May be better to just go Ivy Bridge.

Both releases are so close now, Ivy Bridge looks very tempting because of the added feature set. My decision will be based on the overclockability of the SNB-E Extreme Edition.

As the recent HardOCP article showed, Tri-SLI needs high clock speeds. That's an important factor because I plan to keep my Tri-SLI setup this time when we finally get lots of VRAM under the reference cooler
Yes, I was agreeing with you.

That's probably what happends when bulldozer is nothing to worry about performance wise, and Intel can afford to push it back to early next year.....If Bulldozer was a bigger threat, Intel would release Sandy bridge E's as soon as possible to counter them.

That and they have enough sockets on the market without confusing customers further. In what 3 years they have had 5 sockets? 775, 1366, 1156, 1155 and now 2011. Pft far too many, guess it's why they make so much profit every new processor needs a new board!

No, that's Ivy Bridge, coming in Q2. This is replacing the current i7 9xx CPU's on the LGA1366 platform.

Ouch if true:


http://techreport.com/discussions.x/21469


180 watts under load for the high end 6 core sandy bridge E chips, with intel recomending that PSU makers make their PSU's deliver at least 23 amps on the secondary 12volt rail dedicated to the CPU...I wonder how high it can get once overclocked....Yikes.


Ivy bridge with it's 22nm finfet process and 30% power savings over the 32nm process sounds rather nice right about now, and some here actually wanted an 8 core version Sandy bridge E while still on the 32nm process....
