The processors that use Intel's Sandy Bridge architecture come in several families which can easily be identified by looking at the last letter of their name. The Core i7 2600S which features in our review today is from the S range, which is designed to be more energy efficient than the others. We put that to the test when we decided to see how it performed compared, especially when up against the Core i7 2600K. But before we take a closer look, let's stop to familiarise ourselves with the three different versions of the Core i7 2600 processor from Intel. First up is the Intel Core i7 2600K, which is the most powerful of the three with a HD Graphics 3000 chipset and advanced overclocking options. Next comes the 'basic' version of the i7 2600, with no suffix. It runs at the same clock speed as the first of the three—3.4 GHz with a 3.8 GHz Turbo mode—but has a HD Graphics 2000 chipset. Instead of the advacned overlocking, there are extra features designed to appeal to professionals including vPro, TXT, VT-d and SIPP. Finally, it's the turn of today's star, the Core i7 2600S, with a basic clock speed of just 2.8 GHz. Its Turbo mode—which we explained in our test of the Core i7 2600K—nevertheless allows it to climb to the same maximum speed of 3.8 GHz.
