Time seems to fly. Just over one year ago Intel introduced Sandy Bridge to the world. Packing a high performance CPU, with mega overclockability for the K skews, yet keeping power consumption and heat to a bare minimum. The best part was that Sandy Bridge was affordable and even a big threat to Intel's flagship, the socket 1366. World records were smashed at HWBot, as this little socket 1155 CPU overclocked to 5.8Ghz and beyond. The instructions per clock were way faster then anything we were accustomed too. End of last year, it was time to replace the aging socket 1366 by Sandy Bridge-E. The socket 2011 has big potential with it's quad channel RAM support and multi GPU excellence via 40 PCI-E lanes. But the overall clock speeds of the SB-E were disappointing. Most CPU's don't even go over 5500mhz on cold. Today we are gonna introduce the "Die" shrink of the little affordable Sandy Bridge CPU's : Codename Ivy Bridge.
