so, like, any minute now, right?
I was really looking forward to getting an FX chip mid-summer. But waiting until Oct/Nov to get one will make me wait and see how the Sandy Bridge E's perform before I end up deciding
False dilemma for most users. Sandy Bridge E will bring with it a much more costly platform that requires what will be a very expensive motherboard, if 1366 is any indication, and probably higher cost on the CPUs to start as well. Not to mention that while quad-channel RAM isn't a requirement, you'll want it in order to get the very best out of your already very expensive investment (what's another $50 for 4x4GB of RAM, anyhow?) It'll be other-worldly in both performance and cost. The debate will be between Sandy Bridge and Zambezi for most, or waiting until January/February for Ivy Bridge.
