Intel Sandy Bridge put to the test - Undervoltage

Written by Eliot Kucharik

Review:
Intel's new generation sees the light

 

Undervoltage:

It's quite useless to reduce the VCore with these CPUs. Even a quite massive drop by 0.1V decreases power just by about 8W. So the CPU equates lower VCore with increased current.

"As was expected, the new generation of CPUs blows away its predecessors and AMD as well"

Hmm a little late for a review? This is old news..

Wow, already?

Yes, it's late, but Thanks Mr. Kucharik: You consistently have the most useful CPU reviews, because of pertinent overclocking/undervolting/overvolting/power consumption information. Also other CPUs in the comparison are relevant.

A question: looking at Asus and Gigabyte web sites, I don't see support for Xeon Sandy Bridge CPUs on their regular P67 motherboards. How can I make sure that the Xeon E3-1230 is compatible with a given Socket 1155 motherboard?

I didn't read the article for why this is published now, but i'm guessing surely there has been a mistake?

Damn, I was hoping this was about socket 2011...

Ivy Bridge is next, in all its trigate 3D glory. AMD better get their act together and ARM better get a x86 license :lol:

it`s no huge difference between these cpu`s maybe in oc mode but amd has none 32nm cpu for desktop at least if only 10 or fps in games its not worth the upgrade ..i don`t get it what happened to whole sse5 future stuff??

Pretty good review. Next time you could include a couple more gaming benchmarks, like Crysis, which is a CPU-intensive game.
