No you are correct.

Excellent review. So it seems that these LGA 1355 processors provide a huge jump in performance compared to their LGA 1356 counterparts. Now I'm interested to see how the non-K versions perform and overclock.

Btw on page 3 of the review at the WoW chart, it should say 1280 and not 1210 ;)

In line two of your post it should read 1155 and 1156 not 1355/1356 :biggrin:

If s2011 has the BCLK limitation I'll be pretty disappointed.

But saying that, with a lack of integrated graphics, I see no real reason why there would be no more BCLK headroom.

I'll have to wait for Q4 before I can pass full judgement on this architecture. Looks promising, and I love the additional extensions for transcoding.

We will see what the Gromacs folks can do with the new extensions....

Tough to keep up with the tech race these days! I am still stoked about my i7 920 :biggrin:

from what i read 2011 wont have but the traditional multi limitations, save the extreme k,x or whatever edition they call the higher end ones.

im still bumped that theres no i3 k yet. it would make for a killer chippie as well. like one article says, it sends lower end customers directly to amd's offerings.

now, what was the date, i mean date, for the dozer release date? ;)

I'm quite curious as to what kind of PPD the 2600K can pull in compared to something like an i7 920. Anyways, solid review! I'm still slightly holding my breath for what AMD has to offer in the coming weeks or months.

Humm since 1156 Cpu cooler works on 1155 i might grab a P67a UD4 with a 2500K and use my current part to finally built my little PC that will replace my POS laptop.. ;)

2600K for 317$ AND BEATS THE 980X in some benchmarks that is for 1000$?

I guess I'm moving to sandy bridge now?

Sky,

Care to comment on this?

I think so, yes. AMD is launching parts on the 4th and Intel may not have wanted their new architecture compared to well-priced AMD offerings.
