    my guess is 1155 is doing to well in both sales and performance for intel to rush out 2011. I mean shoot if you have a cheap to produce solution that currently hits the top of the performance slots why release something that's more expensive to produce and will occupy the same top performance slot?

    No worry's mates in Israel/Germany/Portugal anyone can forget about news from a week+ ago. ;) Sry, I should have been more clear in my post.

    The 48cores 1Jan 2011 on 1 cpu I was referring to was the 48 or 50core Knights Corner
    and the recent Intel news that stated the 50 to 250 cores per cpu is giving them a hard time with the coding issues they have. Sry forgot the link.

    "Intel details 50-core Knights Corner chip"
    http://www.electronista.com/articles/11/06/20/components.to.be.built.using.22nm.process/
    or
    http://www.theregister.co.uk/2010/06/01/intel_knights_co_processor/print.html

    Apple also wanted to unofficially have the Xeon E5 or the Knights Bridge whatever they could get their hands on in their upcoming Apple Mac Pro's for August that has a custom cpu but I guess they had to settle for something like 16 cores instead.

    http://9to5mac.com/2011/06/23/apple-gearing-up-to-launch-upgraded-mac-pro-with-16-core-processor/

    HPC/HOPC "HomeOffice PC" (20x 12core 6168) "240cores" / (10x 6870x2) "22400stream cores" is my HPC just waiting for powercolor to get their release acts together so I can get delivery. Surely every 2nd persons has something as slow my HPC ?

    LOL viagra joke is about Intel not being able to deliver on demand or on request, but I am sure you got that joke ? :p

    It doesn't even matter Sandy bridge-E is going to be worth the wait . Hell I am am waiting till Ivy Bridge before I make a new build any way . :rockout:

    I think Intel is just delaying because they have no competition. Its time IBM or some other group steps in to press the tech farther. Intel is greedy and AMD is incompetent.

    I would agree with this . AMD is too focused on ATI , There is no competition for Intel and once Ivy bridge is out all bets are off . I can smell AMD dieing off and decomposing now .

    wondering if the tick/tock cycle is causing too much pressure on the Intel design teams and this delay is due to a hang up in ES hardware not playing nice
