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

Ahh,

I really hate the corporate culture at Intel....

I'm glad, at least AMD isn't alone in the fail. Actually this is a bigger failure for Intel because much more is expected of them compared to AMD. LOL

Always been a fan of AMD, they just seem like a more geek friendly, down to earth company.

I wouldn't call it a fail by any means.

Its just not really targeted at gamers or mainstream.

But, for those who work alot with heavily threaded applications, and can truly make use of all that RAM & the 6cores/12threads, its a huge win.
Theres simply no processor out there that can keep up.

But for 95% of us, its hard to justify the price for most activities and gaming, as there not that much difference there.

Agree, not really sure who Intel is targeting. Though the chip is impressive, as you say, 95 percent of us don't need it, especially since the i7-2600K is still around for a 3rd of the price of the i7-3960X.

+1 It's great for those who need what it does. At least Intel wasn't touting it as the 2nd coming, lol. A Guy

And they didn't spend a year and half building it up like AMD did with the Bulldozer. Now that was a bust. Early info had me nearly ready to go AMD. NOT!

The series is designed to follow on the aged (as processors go) i7-970, 980 and 990 hex cores. Those weren't for mainstream PCs either. And at 6.4 GT/s, they aren't slouches.

Well I'm still stuck with my slow i7-950. Bummer

I agree. They kept to themselfs. I wish the new $1000 Intel chip was a little better. In most tests that I have seen it only gave 1 more frame a second in games then the I7 2600K. I am not sure where these new chips fit in since it is on the level of a server and companies such as the one I work for just dump intense simulation onto the servers.

I don't think any of the hex cores are targeting gamers. I doubt the game software can even make use of them. These CPUs are for workstations. I think the primary audience is CAD. (Mechanical and Architectural)

Or the extreme enthusiasts who just have to have one just to say they have one. (I'd get one, if I could afford it )

Anyway as a gamer I can't say I've pushed my i7-950 system to it's limits. Yeah the GPU may be pushed, but the CPU certainly hasn't.

Agree with the post above.

For a 6 core chip they should test dual-boxing. But even then, as most games put 90% of the work into a single thread anyway...

Quad-boxing anyone?
