i7 2600k, i5 2500k & 2300 1155 Sandy Bridge Review

Crysis Warhead & AvP

Intel LGA1155 Review

Crysis Warhead

Firstly we have a clear demonstration of the difference that a CPU can make, with the overclocked Core i5-2500K being 20 frames-per-second faster than the Core i5-2300. With a game like Crysis though and the power of our GTX570 all of the CPUs on test today manage to provide a perfectly playable experience.

Alien vs Predator

It definitely seems to be that when the GPU is fully loaded the P67 chipset develops a bottleneck that doesn't exist when the testing is more CPU bound. But we'll discuss this more in our conclusion. Onwards.

Wow. Just.. wow. I agree with the Turbo-only mode being a tad obnoxious though. But, otherwise quite nice looking chips and awesome vids. Thanks mucho!Quote
