MBReview has released their review of Intel’s new “Sandy Bridge” processors, the Core i5-2500K and Core i7-2600K. Paired with two new chipsets, the H67 and P67, these processors offer a compelling argument for consumers in the market for an upgrade. If you feel this article would be of interest to your readers, a link would be appreciated.
“If boards are offered at the right price, I can see users of older Core 2 processors having plenty of reasons to upgrade to Sandy Bridge. Intel has suggested MSRP's of $107 for the DH67BL and $184 for the DP67BG. At these competitive prices, we're likely to see some excellent boards in the sub $200 range, and likely a few solid solutions around the $150-$160 mark. If this is the case, we'll have more reason to consider suggesting upgrades to Sandy Bridge, but only for older products in need of it, i.e. Core 2 Duo / Core 2 Quad and prior generations.”
