Intel Sandy Bridge promises to deliver GPU quality graphics included in the CPU. However, these graphics are not going to compete directly with mid-range or high-range GPUs, but they will finally allow Intel (which quite honestly, sucks) to enter the graphic market. Finally, laptop users won't have crappy graphic and everyone should have at least decent graphic out of the box.

After 15 years, finally I can consider this question "Do you have a graphics card?" a thing of the past. CPU should include a decent GPU right out of the box, and gamers will continue to buy their fancy Nvidia or ATI mid-range and high-end products, or even combine them in CrossFireX, SLI, or even Mix+Match using Hydra.

The Chinese website http://www.inpai.com.cn has published a review that shows that there is little to no benefit in Intel Sandy Bridge if you compare the famous Intel Core i7 875k with the new Intel Core i7 2600k

However, they were able to reach 4.7Ghz, so I don't see why they are so disappointed with Intel. Anyway, here is what they had to say about the new Intel Core i7 2600k
Conclusion

As far as overclocking is concerned, the Core i7 2600K processor reached a not so impressive 4.7GHz which is a disappointment amongst overclockers since they were the only one who's gonna pay for this CPU

Yeah I can see why they're dissapointed... Just 4.7Ghz, Pathetic. (Sarcasm)

I wrote the intro to the article. The Chinese might have been expecting 5Ghz

From what I read, they HAVE to buy the unlocked multiplier version

2600K

if you don't buy the K you're pretty much screwed, as you can see the base clock remains 100Mhz

From what I know, buying the Intel Core i7 2600k will be totally worth it, but I assume A LOT of users who don't know that will be frustrated when they buy an expensive CPU and learn (after they already payed for it), that they can't overclock it

I think it's a step backwards really

Yeah I agree, overclocking should be made easier, I think I'll stick with my 920.

I guess this processor is aimed at people that wouldn't overclock anyway, people who buy this probably want the benefits of the onboard GPU, whereas people that overclock will most likely buy a dedicated GPU.

Well for $310 a CPU that can reach 4.7Ghz and can also give me a decent GPU it's pretty sweet

I can even sell my graphic card and stick with Intel GPUs for a while.

This is important when you want to buy your GPU because you need money, or because there are a new generation of GPUs that catch your eye

Yep thats true, I could do with some kind of onboard graphics, selling both my graphics cards and will soon be without a working PC.

I sent my motherboard for an RMA and bought another mobo

I will stay without Mobo for a few days/weeks

so I really hope it's worth it!

I hate being without a PC even if it's for one day, the other computer I have is Pentium super ultra slow, haha, I hate it

you load Google and CPU usage is 100% for a while, haha, it's pathetic

I don't understand... you say this is the i7 2600K @ 4.7ghz, but in that CPU-Z screenshot the specs say i5 2300, what am I missing?

Typical scenario, CPU-Z needs to be upgraded

I remember Intel Core i7 920 was read as something else also

I know there are two processors

Intel Core i5 2500k - 3.30Ghz
Intel Core i7 2600k - 3.40Ghz

overclocking with CoolerMaster V8 (a mid-range CPU cooler), is expected to be similar to this:

Core i5-2500K @ 4.2Ghz
Core i7-2600K @ 4.5Ghz

With Corsair H50/H70, you can add an extra 200-300Mhz or so

I will buy the Intel Core i7 2600k around January 5th-10th, as soon as I get it, I'll post some benchmarks, as well as information about the temperatures and overclocking potential :)

The Nice thing is: Sandy Bridge is approximately 10-15% faster Clock for Clock :D 
That will mean even higher performance with those high clock speeds!

I am going to post my overclocking results today or tomorrow. 5 more hours until I get my hands on Sandy Bridge!!! :)

Well, hitting 4.5k on 2500k is a joke. I hit that from straight asus autotuning. It's not even hard or a challenge. Just click auto-tune and come back 10 min later. It's that last .5k that will require a little bit of work.

Basically, if you can't hit 4.5k on a processor, you got unlucky.

No you can't as to use the built in graphics you need the H67 chipset but to overclock you need the P67 which needs discrete graphics

Hey guys

overclocking here is a joke

I have my CPU running at 4.5Ghz, but it runs SLOWER than my Intel Core i7 875k @ 4.1Ghz

Is this because the FSB was removed from the mobo and the speed in which the CPU communicates with the mobo is 100Mhz?

I've read on reviews from previous generations, than cranking up the FSB generated better results than just playing with the multipliers, since the CPU communicate with the mobo at good speeds, imagine 190Mhz

Now, with 100Mhz, is that a bottleneck?

It seems like my Intel Core i7 2600k @ 4.5Ghz is slower than my Intel Core i7 875k @ 4.1Ghz

That really sucks
I tested with Adobe Premiere CS5

i can boot 5ghz @ 1.4v
but my watercooling didn,t arive yet, so i use the stock cooler ;)

well the main problem is the FSB

I had it at 190Mhz with the Intel Core i7 875k
now I have it at 102 Mhz with the Intel Core i7 2600k

so I want to know if that creates a difference in programs such as Adobe Premiere CS5 (which uses the CPU to 100%, all threads)
