Sandy Bridge-E Coming November to a Store Near You

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).

    Is it really worth it to go for the extreme processor over the other 6core unlock?

    I fear it may already be too late for Bulldozer, with Sandy Bridge-E coming out not long after it does.

    At least when you look at value to cost that is.

    You can do 16x 16x on sli instead of 8x 8x seems like the only real difference, but then you lose the unlocked feature unless you want to pay $300 more.
