Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
Intel Core i7-3690X-EE (LostCircuits) - Intel Core i7-3690X-EE (LostCircuits)

The biggest problem with Sandy Bridge Extreme is that it was predictable, it was expected to be a killer processor and in so far, we have read a number of reviews that lukewarmly acknowledged this. Let’s now just put this into a different perspective. Had AMD come out with a Bulldozer that rivaled the performance of SNBe, the entire online community would have stood on their heads, including any and all of the analysts. It would have been the biggest success that AMD’s design team had scored ever. But, SNBe is an Intel product and in so far we cannot drum up all the fanboys. Too bad. Change of perspective again: It really does not matter whether SNBe is going to be a commercial homerun or not. What matters is that there is a proof of concept of what is possible and what will be, in a short amount of time scaled down to a consumer product at 80% of the current peak performance, or even better. That, and the proof that Intel’s team can execute is the main value of Sandy Bridge Extreme.
