>Sandy Bridge Extreme Edition: What to Expect?
>Well, according to Techpowerup’s recent article, the i7 3960X is roughly 47% faster than the 990x. That number is absolutely astounding. Being somebody that has owned a machine with an extreme edition CPU (the 980x) – I can tell you that this is absolutely mind boggling, and will likely be worth every cent. (We’re probably talking a million cents. I’d put the tag up around 800-1000$)
With 12 threads (via hyperthreading) and quad channel DDR3 IMC, we are in for a treat.
