Good stuff Jim.

Looking very much forward to see if it can maintain it`s credentials in the overclocking stakes. (cos we don`t use stock speeds around here.. do we ?)

Awesome.

the problem is on the non "extreme" editions having over wattage protection could hinder overclocking capability, I think intel have finally realised that people were buying midranged CPU's and investing in top cooling...rather then forking out for the top ranged line....sad sad day....do you recon this is backlash from intel actually having very little competition these days...maybe so...so rast looks like stock maybe the only option for sub £500 i7's ....it makes me want to cry

Yeah GRID really seemed to make the most of the chip. My guess was that it was mostly down to "physics" calculations, as during each run of the game i'd ramp the car up a bank and send it flying into a wall at 170mph.

ok.. wow.. that's impressive....

be nice to see it overclocked..

makes my q6600 look crap! but that is at stock, be nice to see it against an average overclocked q66 but all to come i guess

memory bandwidth is absolutely INSANE!

depending on price point, i might pick something like this up for rendering, that Cinema 4D benchmark is very very promising

utterly astounded by that memory bandwidth though.. photoshop and video editing are going to LOVE this chip
