    It'll be interesting to know the CPU performance cost of having onboard graphics clock on the chip within the same thermal envelope.

    The turbo speeds of the non-power efficient chips look suspiciously low to me. Lynnfield can already manage nearly 700mhz increase for the same type of chip.

    unfortunately for Intel, their low end sandy bridge chip use more energy than AMD's top end mobile fusion chip

    Unfortunately those Fusion chips to which you refer will probably have significantly lower performance than these Intel chips.

    Just found this article on Bit-Tech through the Wikipedia Sandy-Bridge article.
    Oh and I posted this on another thread by mistake, I'm not deliberately spamming.

    Sure there was a whole thread about that already, but maybe I'm thinking of another forum. I was pretty sure an intel rep had already dismissed it.

    Re: News - More details on Intel Sandy Bridge CPUs leak out

    Oh, I'm not sure that's the first I've heard of it. It does seem like a terrible move though IMO, a real shot-in-foot move, I can't see many people choosing an overpriced OC model over switching to a similar AMD chip and overclocking it. Not that I'm against a big window of opportunity for AMD but it would really disrupt the enthusiast computer market! But now I come to think of it, Intel doesn't seem like the type of company to do something like this - they could have discontinued chips like the Q6600, i5 750 and i7 920 if they wanted to force people to buy more expensive chips.

    Re: News - More details on Intel Sandy Bridge CPUs leak out

    there was an article on tomshardware about the lack of overclocking on the new P67 chipsets (which appear to be the entry level chipsets). Everytime there is a new generation of processors and chipsets out I hear "xxx is to stop overclocking on its new cpu". In this case either

    1) intel will lock out overclocking on its new series completely.
    2) intel will lock out overclocking on its new entry level series (x series chipsets will be overclockable).
    3) 3rd party manufacturers will use different clock generators to allow overclocking.
    4) we need to wait a bit longer for more info

    on a side note its a shame that we are getting a new socket, the good old LGA-775 got a good 5/6 years, my LGA 1366 will have hadb 2/3 years (assuming everything is on track for 2011 launch).

    Re: News - More details on Intel Sandy Bridge CPUs leak out

    Perhaps the 'K' variants with their unlocked multipliers will be the only overclockable chips (by uping the multiplier instead of the base clock) and will be considerably more expensive??
