    Anandtech Sandy bridge benchmarks

    Sorry if someone has already posted this, but a quick search didn't turn up anything...

    Personally I think it looks pretty impressive, just have to wait and see how it matches up to AMD's next offerings...

    Re: Anandtech Sandy bridge benchmarks

    Looks pretty interesting, espescially if the price point is similar. May hold off on the upgrade As you say though, it really depends how AMD goes as that's looking interesting too.

    Hopefully it might be better once properly released too as this is only a 'preview' version by the looks of it.

    Ivy bridge being 22nm looks good though, but I guess that's still a good year away.

    Sad to say it, but damn, I think AMD are fooooked

    There's hoping Bulldozer is awesome, though. I'd like that.

    Re: Anandtech Sandy bridge benchmarks

    AMD only really need to focus on performance on a price. They don't really have to beat intel, just atleast match them on some of their cores and for a lower price point. For example, their 6-core that's rumoured to be aimed at £150.

    Why?

    If you have a requirement for multi-cores then AMD give you many more cores for the money. If you prefer your motherboards to last for more than a years worth of products then again, AMD do this, Intel don't.

    Sandy Bridge looks like a great chip for the low end scene where you want integrated graphics, but it's just wasteful to include it with every chip, especially when p67 motherboards won't even be able to use it.

    I can't wait personally; I hope the AMD bulldozer is a good chip, as intel's price's are daylight robbery.

    Agree on the second point, however the first point IMHO is moot. You may get more AMD cores for your money but the less intel cores are faster per core meaning overall they are about the same. The disadvantage of the more cores approach is you only get to see them used peroperly in something that threads well.

    Sot all Sandy bridge chips will have built in GFX, much like not all of the current Core Ix CPU's don't

    Depends on the workload. Sometimes you want more cores even if they're a little slower per core.

    Not sure I understand what you're saying, but yes, all sandy bridge 1155 chips will have built in GFX, unlike the ix yyy CPUs.

    Re: Anandtech Sandy bridge benchmarks

    this naming scheme is ludicrus... i thought the i* series was supposed to be making it simpler?! For me, if you want to make something simple for people then you make the name of the product relate to its features instead of cryptic number codes.

    No Native USB3.0 still is a shame, as is the overclocking lock. I can understand it from intels point of view of course but its still a pain.

    Onboard GPU looks impressive though, seriously giving low end GPUs a run for their money would be yet another thorn in AMDs side.

    Re: Anandtech Sandy bridge benchmarks

    I think it could be close run, which can only be good for consumers. I'm not sure which way I'd put my money at the moment, we'll have to wait and see how Bulldozer performs in the wild...

    Well, these are mid-range CPUs - so they can't be too expensive as they'll encroach high-end current i7s (LGA13**, can't even remember now ). So if they price these similarly to current i5s and LGA1156 i7s, and SB has better performance, even six core Phenoms can't really compete with them - unless AMD has more room to lower the price.

    Now, I'm not saying I wouldn't enjoy an even cheaper Phenom II X6 in my PC, but Bulldozer's launch date is described only vaguely. Should AMD encounter any manufacturing problems (since these Sandy Bridge prototypes are working and have pretty great performance, the whole design, I assume, is sound; we can't say that about Bulldozer yet, and I do remember the flop that was first-gen Phenoms), that'd put AMD in a really hard place.

    Re: Anandtech Sandy bridge benchmarks

    very good performance but i wonder what the pricing will be like, especially the motherboard. Dont count amd out yet as bulldozer is a totally new design and has been in the making for a lot.longer than intels core i range ( or.am i wrong). look how well amd has done with the old designs, so a new design could offer a huge amoubt of performanc and amd are.good at pricing so we shall see!

    Looks impressive. The power usage is good under load also. Hope the motherboards are well priced also.

    Next year is looking to be a slug contest with the consumers the winners!

    My Mistake - it looks like ALL Socket 1155 Sandy Bridge chips will get the gfx core.
