Sandy Bridge-E Benchmarks Leaked: Disappointing Gaming Performance?

Quote:
Just a handful of days ahead of Sandy Bridge-E's launch, a Chinese tech website, www.inpai.com.cn has done what Chinese tech websites do best and that's leak benchmarks and slides, Intel's NDA be damned. They pit the current i7-2600K quad core CPU against the upcoming i7-3960X hexa core CPU and compare them in several ways. The take home message appears to be that gaming performance on BF3 & Crysis 2 is identical, while the i7-3960X uses considerably more power, as one might expect from an extra two cores.

Extra cores are wasted on games. Apps that utilize all cores outperform chips with less cores. Not overly surprising really.

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

So realistically, 'general' availability in shops Dec onwards.

Mobos too. Intel wouldn't release a chip if the manufacturers had nothing to put them in
