i7 950 is better than amd x6 1100T BE For after effects Premiere Pro CS5 as far I seen from the benchmark tests,But in case of 3ds max amd one is better .So im confused which will be the best choice.Also want to know why this is happening.Should i wait for Sandy bridge...

The CPU´s are different architectures http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/203?vs=100 It looks to me that I7 950 is over all better.
AMD is budget build and Sandy bridge is not going to exceed the capabilities of LGA1366

Depends which app(s) you use predominantly.. The i7 950 enjoys a healthy performance lead over the X6 in adobe apps.. For apps such as 3DS Max and Maya which love processing threads, the X6 lead by a comfortable margin (real world analysis not specview)..

Not to sure about that. Sandy Bridge is about 15-20% faster than a Core i7 880 and is nipping the heels of the 980X:

The only benefit that LGA1366 has is more memory. Normally 6GB but still that doesn't always make a difference.

With Sandy Bridge so close though, I would wait. Even if it doesn't outperform a LGA1366 CPU it will bring prices down therefore giving a better deal.

Of course the only real replacement for LGA1366 will be LGA2011 and thats because it will have quad channel DDR3. Still pointless in most apps but man thats a nice amount of RAM to be had for HPCs and home servers.

Thing is, AMD is cheaper, Intel is more expensive.

You pay for what you get.

I would have liked to see another LGA1366 CPU (I7 950) in that comparison.

As would I but considering that the 980X is the top of the line LGA1366 CPU and as well has 2 more cores and a clock speed advantage, I would say that a i7 2600 SB CPU keeping up with or being very close is quite an accomplishment especially since a lot of those programs can use more than 4 cores.

I think that LGA1155 SB will meet or beat LGA1366 while LGA1366s replacement will flat out beat it.

And since its less than a week from release, I would say its best to wait for some more official reviews on SB to see what it can really do. I am sure THG will have a good review and Anand will probably have a more updated one since theirs was done with non-finalized silicon, mobos and drivers which has been shown to be a bit behind the final products performance.

Either way, waiting will be the best move since a price drop on LGA1366 and current AMD CPUs will probably be seen once SandyBridge hits the wild.

I've been seeing the 6 core E5645 using 1366 at 2.4 GHZ on ebay for $550.... if you ask me, that's not a bad price for six cores. Whether or not it will work in the board you have chosen I don't know... :D

Then again... it's ebay, depends on seller rep.

It is a true LGA1366 processor. I looked through Asus higer end X58 mobos with no shown support listed. Could be coming or might not exist but then again the support is not as needed since Core i7 has a IMC.
