According to information coming out of DonanimHaber, Intel is set to release the new Sandy Bridge-E in late November, between the 15th to 27th, which is ahead of the original December date (or the rumored delay of 2012). Motherboards based on Intel's new X79 express chipset should be released shortly before the release of the processors.
Intel will begin the Sandy Bridge-E platform with the release of the Core i7-3960X Extreme Edition 6-core unlocked processor, Core i7-3930K 6-core unlocked processor, and Core i7-3820 4-core processor. The expected prices for the new processors, at release, look to be set at $999 (Core i7-3960X), $583 (Core i7-3930K) and $294 (Core i7-3820).
Now, the question to ask is... Which CPU will hit the market first: the AMD's FX series processors or the Intel's Sandy Bridge-E processors?
