Core i7-990X Extreme vs. Core i7 2600K
  

Intel has in progress to incorporate the fresh Sandy Bridge processor micro architecture not within the upper price fragment, but within the mainstream LGA1155. This results to the internal antagonism flanked by the new LGA1155 as well as the old LGA1366 processors. Therefore, which one will succeed into this round, the progressive Sandy bridge otherwise the earlier generation of Gulftown?

You know that what Intel is doing that are dumping their stocks of 1000. These are probably the same as the 980X only with new watches and a new name that people know how beautiful you are buying, why let the wafers and by them go to waste. I was seriously thinking of setting my plans AMD ditches and go directly to a facility 2600K i7. It will be a few hundred dollars more than just go to a 1090T, but I think it's justified.

If you are running applications in heavily threaded then 2600K will be ok for you but if not then simple one will also do the work for you. It is said that the 990x is not the same as a 980X. It has a better memory controller. Would you like your well-2500K? I can pair that with 8gigs of DDR3 2000 and GA-P67A UD4. I do not know if it's worth $ 100 more for it. It is new processor architecture for applications in heavily demanded.

Well, if you see to the benchmarks, particularly within games, the dissimilarity is negligible. So for $ 100 I do not believe it worthwhile. And if you're like everyone else on this will be OCing to hell and back anyway. Moreover, it appears, Ivy Bridge processors will run on the socket 1155 and while it's unlikely you'll want to upgrade, there is an upgrade path. You could always sell the 2500K and pick up a new bridge CPU in the future.

re: Core i7-990X Extreme vs. Core i7 2600K

The 1100T seems to be very poor game performance compared to other processors, again, are either new or cost $ 1,000. I, for one, would really like to see the performance of the AMD chips overclock the northbridge and to see what kind of return they could get that. I'm considering that the clock NB is holding the chip back in this review in some parts. An overclocked 990x may be nice if you got paid to do things associated to video all day and night, but otherwise the 2500K and 2600K are the best processors around.

Extreme Edition are for people that money is not. Decently overclocked 920s (U.S. $ 300) are also face to face with 975s (900 U.S. dollars) in the other watches, so the comparison becomes more important op for the money involved, but nevertheless it makes no sense, since only a fool would buy one end Ed processor (regardless of generation) if the performance / money matters.

Re: Core i7-990X Extreme vs. Core i7 2600K

The most expensive processor on the market, the 1,000 million of six-core Core i7-990X Extreme Edition CPU holder can be faster today only for video processing, transcoding, the final performance and a series of specific tasks for example encryption and batch image processing. As for most general purpose applications, with contemporary 3D games, there is significantly to Core i7-2600K. Although the CPU latter has a smaller L3 cache, which can boast greatly advanced performance per household.
