"As was expected, the new generation of CPUs blows away its predecessors and AMD as well"

Hmm a little late for a review? This is old news..

Wow, already?

Yes, it's late, but Thanks Mr. Kucharik: You consistently have the most useful CPU reviews, because of pertinent overclocking/undervolting/overvolting/power consumption information. Also other CPUs in the comparison are relevant.

A question: looking at Asus and Gigabyte web sites, I don't see support for Xeon Sandy Bridge CPUs on their regular P67 motherboards. How can I make sure that the Xeon E3-1230 is compatible with a given Socket 1155 motherboard?

I didn't read the article for why this is published now, but i'm guessing surely there has been a mistake?

Damn, I was hoping this was about socket 2011...

Ivy Bridge is next, in all its trigate 3D glory. AMD better get their act together and ARM better get a x86 license :lol:

it`s no huge difference between these cpu`s maybe in oc mode but amd has none 32nm cpu for desktop at least if only 10 or fps in games its not worth the upgrade ..i don`t get it what happened to whole sse5 future stuff??

Pretty good review. Next time you could include a couple more gaming benchmarks, like Crysis, which is a CPU-intensive game.
