Not looking to sad at this point in time imho
i still cant help fell its just another sideways step, more cores again(hyperthreading) not faster cores :(
Still a considerable step up in my opinion especially for a platform that's still prelaunch. Don't think we could have ever expected the same jump we saw from Netburst Pentium 4/Pentium D to Core Architecture.
What's for sure is that in multithreaded situations it's faster and once we see cheaper and faster triple channel memory kits, LGA1366 can be exploited a bit better. What I want to know however is how it does in single threaded apps, where it's limited to a small divided L2 cache but a large pool of unified L3 cache like the AMD Phenom.
looks like it will be a multithreading monster going off that sandra ss.
no slouch at all the others for the speed.
I want to see it running single-threaded apps first.
Or is the solution to overclock the CPU (eg to 3.5ghz) so that it's faster than a P4 (for old apps) and better for new apps (multi, faster cores) since the new apps are multithreaded.
I was playing OpenTTD and wondering if my 1.5ghz dual core would be a problem since it's single threaded, then realised that I still have each core waaay faster than in 1996 when transport tycoon came out :)
Back to topic, by the time I get to the stage of replacing my planned Q6600, there'll be newer 1366 socket CPU's out anyway, so I'll probably be looking at the stage after this one :)
