    Phoronix: Intel Core i3 2100 Sandy Bridge

    Up to this point when looking at the Intel Sandy Bridge performance and compatibility under Linux we have been using the Intel Core i5 2500K and Intel Core i7 2820QM. Last week though we received the Core i3 2100 (along with a Core i7 990X) from Intel and today are putting the low-end ~$125 USD Sandy Bridge processor through its paces under Linux.

    "If there are any other Linux test requests, let us know. Overall though the low-end Sandy Bridge appears to be a nice upgrade from the previous generation Clarkdale CPUs, especially when considering the performance will only improve when using GCC 4.6+ to take advantage of the AVX extensions"

    a current x264/checkasm git pull
    checkasm --bench
    full result's please Michael

    Add AVX functions where 3+ arg commands are useful

    a park_joy_2160p.y4m with a current x264 git pull encode down to 720P might be interesting to use and see as a openbenchmarking benchmark today too

      if you also want to use the current x264 git pull's to make 10bit encodes so improve visual quality even more then you may also want to patch ffmpeg/libav with irock's current 10bit playback patches found here

        P7H57D-V Evo

        Does anyone know if Asus has released a sandy bridge successor to this MB?
        I really love it and want to buy it's successor if it's available.

        I imagine it'd be called something like the "P8H67D-V Evo".
        Then again it could easily be called something else entirely.

        I've searched the Asus site & Google...
        But I've not seen any SB MB's quite as unique as the P7H57D-V Evo yet.
