The i7-4960X has arrived and the fact that it is compatible with current LGA2011 boards might be the biggest hurdle for the Intel sales team.  [H]ard|OCP tested it on a brand new ASUS X79 Deluxe and while it did prove to be a bit faster than a 3930K, or for that matter a 4770K, as well as using a little less power at full load it just does not offer enough of a jump to make swapping your SB-E chip out.  Idle power is impressively low and if you are on an older LGA 1366 board you will certainly notice a jump, so there will certainly be a market for this generation of Intel chip.

"We debut Intel's next $1000 Extreme Desktop processor, the Core i7-4960X, this time with Ivy Bridge architecture and a couple of extra cores thrown in for good measure. It is a beast of a CPU for those that can actually harness its power and bandwidth, but how much better is it than Sandy Bridge-E and Haswell at the same clocks?"

Here are some more Processor articles from around the web:

Unless it's competitive price/watt and Consistently over clocks farther than Ivy bridge, no one really gives a sh!t.

Making me a sand which would also help.

Ignore the Anonymous above he's just there to rant about his inability to understand, and gripe at things. He learned big words recently and is using them in what he's learned to call sentences. Other than that he believes that Being full racist/sexist is the way to go and score internet points without having any idea of what he's talking about.

His poor grammar shows the lack of education and care for anything else which pre relates to his anger issues.

Where did you get racist or sexist from that post above?

Me thinks someone reading into something that's not there.

Anyway back on topic, price per watt matters. Take a listen to the latest podcast where that almost $1000 AMD chip had a price drop of almost half in a few short months.

Faggot needs to take a chill pill. When your head is that bloated to think you speak for every fvcking person on the planet regardless of what system they have, it just shows how fvcked up you are irl.

And if you think your ignorant ploy will fool anyone, then just keep on, I guarantee you wouldn't say half this shit irl without fear of reciprocation. Fvcking dumbass I swear

Well it's somewhat Watt competitive, but it don't overclocks as well as Sandy. Aka it's the same Sandy Ivy transition yet again.

There's a dude on the TPU forums running his 4930k at 5.3GHz.
