Dont knw what to say..........Intel pulled out a Bulldozer in their own style?
But this is the current rumour....Intel Tri-Gate tech in jeopardy but few days left ...time will tell
At 4.6 - 4.7 Ghz the temperature gets so high the processor throttles, meaning it clocks down to protect the processor from permanent damage. Comparing with Core i7-2600k that in many cases can do 4.8 - 5.0 GHz stable with a good after-market cooler, Ivy Bridge looks to be 200 - 300 Mhz worse than Sandy Bridge.
is the old monopoly between the two companies coming to play? will AMD PD get the chance to close the gap with this Intel slip-up?
Waiting is the only answer....but this is turning out to be hell of a year..
