Leonardo said:Cliff, my intent was not to derail this thread and push Folding. (the 'one-trick pony' reference was to myself) I was merely stating my stance on Zambezi: hoping the best for it; I'm interested enough to reserve money for it; I will wait and see if its multithreaded performance is at the level I want, if it can compete favorably with Intel's unlocked, 8-thread *Sandy Bridge CPUs. Gamers and general use demands must be expressed by others, as my requirements are somewhat singular. Multithreaded CPU processing is king right now in Folding's molecular modeling simulations.
On the boards that Leo is looking at, I imagine he will also run the best PPD/$ graphics cards for GPU folding as well.

Leonardo said:Yeah, you don't just sell a brand new, top notch desktop part for $230. My gut reaction is the same as yours. "2700K" Humm, if it's only 100-200MHz faster than the 2600k, it's a big yawn from me. If it will overclock just as high or higher with less of a voltage boost, then :cool::D

Buddy J said:Well, if the Sisoft bungle is any indicator, it'll be balls slow. Bla bla bla pre-production blah blah drivers optimization blah the Intel numbers are skewed... Really hope AMD has some magic in the works.
