Chinese websites have made a habit of not respecting anyone's NDA's so it doesn't come as a huge surprise to see that the first Sandy Bridge-E review is already out.Published on the Inpai website, the review is the real deal as it includes a wide range of benchmarks scores, power consumption figures as well as other info about the upcoming Core i7-3960X.
Just as expected, most of the tests run show Intel's new chip to surpass anything in its path, including the Core i7-2600K based on the “regular” Sandy Bridge Core.
Take a look at some of the results achieved by this processor in the gallery enclosed after this port, or check the original Chinese website to see even more benchmarks.
Also, if you want to find out more about Sandy Bridge-E, make sure to keep an eye on Softpedia, since there isn't that much time left until our own Intel Core i7-3960X review will come out.
