Windows 7: The Sandy Bridge Preview

31 Aug 2010   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

At present I am not really using my i7 920 to it's full potential. There just isn't the software to stretch it out there yet. I think by the time there is it'll be time for a new build anyway. At the moment that seems like years off. J

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 RTM + SP1

I notice there was no news on the eight-core processors which rumors i read said was going to be next year.

Perhaps the following year unless they are going to specialised for Xeon's only.

Tbh, I wouldn't hold my breath for much of a price drop. Any intel chip with an X at the end retains it's price for a long time

There's still time. Intel have a habit of pulling chips like rabbits out of hats at odd times.

Although I'd suspect 8 core chips will be part of the 2nd / 3rd wave of the new architecture release cycles.
