    Default Intel Tick Tock slows down: Sandy Bridge slips into 2011

    http://www.brightsideofnews.com/news...into-2011.aspx

    Lack of competition hurts the market - AMD's continuous delays of their next-gen CPU architecture combined with Intel's ill-fated effort on Larrabee resulted in a slowdown of the Tick-Tock cadence. By now, we all know that AMD Bulldozer should only surface in 2011 - definitely no 2010 major core advances from them above the current cores seen in Phenom and Opteron spread available now. By itself, that's not exactly good news, but then again it wasn't unexpected either.


    Anything missing?
    Your money is safe for another year Intel fans

    Looks like everyone's going to wait for the bulldozer vs sandy bridge war.

    can't wait, games certainly aren't CPU restricted nowadays. hell all anyone needs is a Q6600 at 3.6.

    Same price and the stock clock is 2.8, basically its the same chip, I really don't think it will be a 32nm part.

    Does Intel really think a 4-core Sandy Bridge can beat 8-core Bulldozer? Or does Intel think it's not needed to have >4 cores in desktop?

    It's probably not due to die area or power constraint, otherwise Intel wouldn't have put a GPU in the same chip as 4-core Sandy Bridge. It's not because Intel don't know how to connect more cores; all they need is to put two Nehalem-EP version of Sandy Bridge into one chip. Yet, they don't do it.

    I totally agree with what you said here. On server platforms, more cores means more performance. AMD's 12-core will beat Intel's 6-core (and perhaps 8-core, too).

    On desktop, however, we seem to see two different approaches. Thuban is giving 6-core to desktop. Orochi is giving 8. It's apparent that AMD believe desktop will be able to take advantage of more cores as well. OTOH, if Intel decide to pair GPU with 4-core Sandy Bridge rather than make a 6- or 8-core, it means they do NOT expect desktops to benefit from more cores. In that case, I'm pretty sure that Intel will do everything they can to make sure that desktop applications WILL NOT benefit from more cores.

    I'm actually prepared to read Anandtech saying something like "... based on our (biased) comprehensive set of benchmarks, it appears AMD is making more cores than consumers can enjoy ..."

    Just finished testing the 930 gumpy, full review coming soon. Short version: same chip, just higher stock clock. OC's the same as my 920 D0 (4.5GHz).

    Essentially the 930 is just the 920's replacement, nothing new here.

    I wonfered if 1 more multi would be enough but from reading about odd and even not being equally overclockable I guess this is just the currently available 920. Looking forward to your review.

    You hit 4.5? what is the batch number?
