Windows 7: Sandy Bridge-E Benchmarks Leaked: Disappointing Gaming Performance?

I posted the article, but it is way to early to say these CPUs are a bust. We can't even confirm the tests, and this was about gaming. 2 extra cores, in real world, and other synthetic benchmarks may well greatly impress. I doubt they will be a bust, but they may not be better then the previous choices. In fact, the likely lower prices on the previous CPU's may make them more attractive. It will all depend on how they perform in the areas that you use your PC most. A Guy

I know it is early but it feels like what happen to Bulldozer... and we all know where that went. I hope it's not a bust.

Yep. Speculation is largely moot at this point until all the real world testing - end users, not reviewers, is in.

Synthetic benchmarks are largely meaningless to me. Day to day anecdotal evidence carries much more weight.

Wait and see

Bulldozer was different - the masses were expecting a magic CPU that didn't happen. x79, not as much expectation.

I wouldn't be doing any victory laps just yet....

While this is all rather disappointing, it's best to take leaked benchmarks like this with a (big) grain of salt and wait for the usual gang of reputable websites to publish their reviews on launch day, November 14th
We'll see what's said once the chips hit the market

As did HardOCP:

`EDIT`

NewEgg now has them avaialable.
$599 for the 3930K

Looks like the only x79 boards they have ATM are ASUS, MSI, and ASRock.

Apparently not a loser, but not attractive to the majority of users. If it lowers the 2500K and 2600K prices, then it's very welcome for that reason. Wishmaster, go ahead and choose your build now A Guy

Still looking towards the 2600/2700k build but ... I must admit I am tempted
Quite expensive in comparison, and doesnt seem theres really any gain over SB for gaming.

Wishmaster, I see you are looking at the same thing I am. I have a new tower and power supply covered up in the basement waiting on Ivy Bridge. (cpu 27xxK)

The only 'real gains' X79 I can see for gaming is multi-gpu / Eyefinity/Surround with the full x16 lanes.

Core wise - 99% of games now, and in the realistic future aren't going to utilize more than 4 cores. Power hungry bugger by comparison too.

It's nice - but I don't regret going 'mainstream' with 1155. For now...
