Sandy Bridge-E comes in Q4 2011 after all

Written by Slobodan Simic

Three models paired up with Patsburg-A/B chipset
There has been a great deal of rumours lately regarding of the possible Intel Sandy Bridge-E launch and although some of them were pretty solid regarding the info that Sandy Bridge-E will wait for the next year, Donanimhaber.com managed to score couple of Intel slides that show that we'll see three LGA2011 Sandy Bridge-E models in Q4 2011.

According to the latest leaked slide, Intel will launch three models based on socket LGA2011 Sandy Bridge-E including six-core Core i7-3960X and Core i7-3930K as well as the quad-core Core i7-3820. All three models are placed in Q4 2011 column. According to some rumours, the first wave of motherboards will be based on Patsburg-A/B chipsets that have less SATA 6Gbps ports compared to Patsburg-D chipset, but hopefully we won't wait too long for the top chipset as well.

According to another set of slides, the upcoming Core i7-3960X will be a bit faster than the Intel current high-end Core i7-990X EE CPU in at least some benchmarks including the Cinebench 11.5, POV-Ray 3.7, 3DMark 11, ProShow Gold 4.5, SPEC CPU2006 and Sandra 2011B. These results doesn't come as a surprise considering that the Core i7-3960X EE has an increased memory bandwidth, a bit more cache (15MB compared to 12MB on the Core i7-990X) and features Intel AVX.

You can check out the launch schedule slide here while the performance slides can be found here.

Bye bye amd bOObdozzer,you dont even need to release it :D
Quad-core Core i7-3820 will be better than your 8 core nonsense,not even mention new Intels 6 core LOL,only ex ati saving your a$$ now,but not for long surely
Cant wait dan and his girlfriend mr.sucker "posts" after bOObdozzer failure.Oh,wait..bOObdozzer isnt even released yet..another delay?Another 60-90 days i gues
MHUAHAHAHAHA amd=Always Manage Defeat

u sound like silly kid, u r 14 or something?Sandy Bridge-E will cost 2-3x more than BD,but will not give u 2-3x better performance. If BD will not be as good as many hope, people will simply buy Intel CPUs instead.

Be careful what you are wishing for... You know AMD's competition means lower Intel prices for you, right? If not because of competition, you would probably be paying $400 for an i5-2500K, which is a great processor. If they both excel, we the consumers win!

Only two SATA III ports and the same amount of SATA 2 ports I have on old motherboards. What were they thinking?

It is funny these are the same cores benchmarked a year ago to show sandy bridge power as hidden CPU identification videos on youtube/etc..

Those cores ran at 12-16 sandy bridge cores and of course the cinebench ran like hell, lol. So, as for AMD heck I'll buy your Bulldozer just for not screwing the customers so much (but then again can't say same for AMD Graphics department).

Yea screw Amd lol and then we only will have intel to ask how much they want and then u will have to pay the price.

Dumb ppl forgot that withouth concorrence we are the one screwed.

Anyway Amd is fast enough for most ppl and cheaper, why would i need a processor that can decode do cinebench and stuff faster if i dont need it in first place???

I care about my pocket, the one that fits me better get my money no strings attached in any brand.
