Finally the Sandy Bridge Socket 1155 Platform has been officially released, which is very exciting news for any computer enthusiast or user. The initial results are spewing all around the net, and they seem to be very good according to sites like Tom’s Hardware – The Sandy Bridge Review, bit-tec – Intel Sandy Bridge Review, and AnandTech – The Sandy Bridge Review: Intel Core i7-2600K, i5-2500K and Core i3-2100 Tested. I’m hoping to put together a bunch of builds / integrate the new Sandy Bridge processors into my previous builds as soon as I can, but until then you can check out what’s available for you to purchase below.

As well I have included the Newegg TV: Introducing the Intel Sandy Bridge Socket 1155 Platform video below. It outlines which Sandy Processor would be best for you, and is a great video for anyone who seems to be confused about the finite details on the chip (including the Sandy Bridge naming conventions :P) I hope you are as excited as I am about this release, and have fun building your very first Sandy Bridge PC!
