"Sandy Bridge" is coming out today
 
Intel's "Sandy Bridge" CPUs are being launched at CES 2011 today. Anybody planning to buy one in the near future?

I was thinking about it. Those encoding benchmarks look pretty promising. Probably get the 2600K.

Okay, I'll keep an eye out on Newegg for the launch series. Thanks for the heads up.

The 2600 is pretty close to the 980X, except for a few benchmarks (x264 second pass). Not sure how it'll translate to the real world though, but it looks good.
