    You should be more specific when you quote and question.

    "It does" is referred about what? The cache?

    No one said its gonna be :), btw LGA1150 is mainstream Haswell 4core (8threads).


    Haswell-E will be something LGA20xx for sure.

    If you also read thread he said Haswell NOT Haswell E, thus my reply.

    Ya sure about that LGA20XX, try socket R3. Rumor has it LGA2011 will be replaced so your for sure thing is not for sure as stated in your quote.

    Haswell E: LGA 2013, 16 cores, 32 threads, 4GHz clock speed, awesome performance, reasonable price! :rockout:

    Ok, I'll stop dreaming now. :p

    I haven't seen anything official but LGA2013 would make sense.

    I'd be happy enough just with a double QPI X edition :O

    I was making up all those specs as just a bit of wishful thinking, especially that reasonable price. :) I have no idea what socket it will be on.

    Why would they release an 8 core i7 for, let's say, $1500, if they can market an 8 core Xeon for much more than that? Why waste the best cpu dies on an enthusiast/barely entry level workstation market when they can soak up a lot more profit from corporate/government/institutional customers?

    Agreed, then give me unlocked high end Xeons, fair enough?

    I'd probably buy a 2687w if it was unlocked.

    Who he? Anyhow it doesnt matter..



    LGA 2011, also called Socket R, is a CPU socket by Intel.

    From wiki, thus this new Haswell-E is still LGA20xx ;)

    I'm currently considering purchasing (in the next 3 months) a Sandy Bridge E 3820 quad core CPU along with an ASRock X79 Extreme 11 board (the ability to quad-SLI at x16/x16/x16/x16 was a big factor in this choice :D ) to replace my current AMD platform (Phenom II X4 965 BE).

    My intention is to eventually replace the SB-E chip with an IB-E later on, so that I don't need to replace the mobo. Given that the primary use for my PC is gaming, 4 cores are quite sufficient for my needs, so the fact that the IB-E chips will ship with 6 isn't a problem for me. Until games start taking advantage of more than 6 cores, there's no point me worrying about Intel disabling the extra 2.

    I'm also not too bothered about the longevity of the Socket 2011, if I can swap out the 3820 and drop an IB-E in there later on, I'll be happy. I've never upgraded just the CPU in any machine I've built - I've always replaced the mobo as well, so actually getting 2 CPU upgrades without having to swap out the rest of the system will be good for me.

    My question to you clever chaps is this: am I barking up the wrong tree with my plans above? I want a mobo that will give me the best possible performance from my graphics hardware (currently a pair of GTX680s) and I want a CPU that favours raw clock speed over lots of cores, since that's what's going to give me the smoothest framerates. Are there better ways to do this (or cheaper ways?), would I benefit from looking at a different platform?

    Interested to know your thoughts. Thanks.
