+ - Intel Core i7-3960X Sandy Bridge-E Tested->

Vigile writes "Intel is taking the wraps off of the Core i7-3960X processor, the new high-end enthusiast part based on the Sandy Bridge-E architecture. Very similar to the currently existing parts, SNB-E moves from a quad-core design up to six cores while removing the integrated graphics. Other changes include a move to a 15MB L3 shared cache, 40 lanes of PCI Express (with unofficial PCIE 3.0 support) and a new quad-channel memory controller supporting speeds of 1600 MHz and capacities of 64GB. The new Extreme Edition part definitely takes the performance crown for consumer processors based on PC Perspective's testing while introducing a new socket (LGA2011) and a new chipset (X79) but will only be offered in two somewhat expensive options immediately (i7-3930K and i7-3960X) coming in at $555 and $990 respectively."
