Intel Core i7-3690X-EE

There is a review of the Intel Core i7-3690X-EE processor posted today at Lost Circuits that is definitely worth checking out. For comparison purposes, you can see our review here.

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.
