Intel Initiates Mass Production of Sandy Bridge
 
and on a 1155 socket


Intel Initiates Mass Production of Sandy Bridge Microprocessors - X-bit labs

is that means the end of the 1366 and 1156 ?

If you follow the rumors on Sandy Bridge, it's been detailed for quite a while that there will be new sockets for the P67 and X68 chipsets.

X68 ??? I read something about H67 and P67, but the X68 will be on have a new socket ???? ( 1155 or something else ?) ..... so goodbye the upgrade path, alltrue I'm not surprise at all.

LGA1155 - Mainstream Sandy Bridge (Quad Core, Dual Channel)
LGA2011 - High End Sandy Bridge (Oct Core, Quad Channel)

Wait wait... Intel's changing sockets Again? Wow. That's just Fail IMO. :haha:

Quad Channel! Time to buy even more RAM :-D

Yay. This i7 rig was getting a bit old anyways :haha:

No, but really. I'm going to wait this generation out. I cant get this rig to stutter on any thing other then F@H (which always will consume 100% of any configuration). So I'll wait and see whats down the road for now.

That's about how I feel too....

Granted there's no point in jumping on a quad-core Sandy Bridge anyways if you have an i5/i7 already. The 6-core *may* be worthwhile late next year, but probably not of much use for gaming.

guys, they have to make more billions, come on. how can they keep the same socket for you to upgrade after 2 years? :).


curious about the 8 core f@h performance :)

The article seems to focus more on the release of the lower end spectrum. If that's the case, we have a little bit more time with our i7 rigs before the high end Sandy Bridge overtakes us lol. Not a big deal for the vast majority though. For the avid folder, however, it may be quite attractive to invest in an octo-core hyperthreaded CPU. If 50k+ PPD is possible on a moderately overclocked i7 980x, I'd love to see numbers for an octocore.
