Intel is preparing its next high-end/enthusiast desktop platform for release in Q4 2011. That platform will be driven by a new socket, the LGA2011, and the new Intel X79 Express chipset. Before that, Intel will give its 2-year old current enthusiast platform, the LGA1366 and X58 Express, a fitting farewell with a new high-end processor model, the Core i7-995X Extreme Edition. The i7-995X is a six-core processor based on the 32 nm "Gulftown" silicon. It features a default clock speed of 3.60 GHz (27 x 133 MHz), 3.86 GHz max Turbo, though the BClk multiplier is unlocked to help with overclocking.

The six x86-64 cores are aided by Intel HyperThreading technology to give the OS a total of 12 logical CPUs (threads) to deal with. The processor features a triple-channel (192-bit wide) DDR3 memory controller, and connects to the X58 chipset over a 6.4 GT/s QuickPath Interconnect link. Intel will launch its new chip some time in Q3 2011, i7-995X is expected to be priced at $999 (in 1000-unit tray quantities), displacing the current SKU at this price, the Core i7-990X Extreme Edition. For now, a lucky few (read: "industry partners") have access to engineering samples.

Wait, why would anyone buy this? The people that would be interested probably have the 980x already and theres no point in investing in the platform with that kind of money any more. IMO.

So the 1366 socket is EOL. Didn't we have that discussion last year ;)

In this economy, this is almost insulting. But I'm sure someone will buy it, even being for an EOL socket.

Oh come on!

What is the use in having it "turbo" to 3.86ghz from 3.60ghz. :rolleyes:

Nice chip but it should at least turbo to 4.25ghz or something.... specially for $1000 bucks

Are you people insane?

LGA1366 is no where near EOL it's the only platform to buy.

SB is hoax crap Ivy Bridge leaked data indicates they do not intent to offer us even 10% of quality of LGA1366 and AMD can't get their stuff straight. Anyone telling that LGA1366 is 'dead' is either totally unaware of current market situation or technology build in. Intel is currently making biggest mistakes of their lives by restricting people who kept them alive and they will pay really deep price for doing so no matter what kind of crap they offer to us it's too far to be considered as profitable purchase to anyone.

So, I'd look really damn carefully what the situation really is before considering to say platform has no future, lol, since this platform will be more alive when Ivy Bridge is dead.

it wouldn't be able to stay in its power spec' at that speed (130w), theres only so much efficiency you can squeeze out of it. at 4.2 it starts to nom on more and more power, when i had my 970 up at that speed it was reporting 140~145w on the socket

Breaking news : Kreij won't be getting one of these.

Nice CPU, though.
Hmm, 3.6GHz, 6 core 12 thread, 130W TDP, 999$

Something tells me Intel's upcoming LGA 2011 will leave even this in the dust

I would like to know what you have been smoking, so that I can avoid them. Sandy Bridge beats 4c/8t 9xx processors in just about every front, and no body in their right mind will get the 6c/12t processors for gaming and general usage. Only people getting the 6c/8t are the people who needs the top of the range rigs, and frankly we shouldn't consider them to be your average user. If you come with the 16PCIe lanes only argument, I am happy to point out that there are P/H/Z68 motherboards which support more more 32x lanes. I agree that AMD is in a rather bad position right now, but even then for many of us their low end Athlon II x4/x3 is a viable budget gaming rig.

but not all of the cores are "turbo" just 2 (maybe 3) so I dont see how it cant stay in spec with that.Not including these are cherry cores unlocked to be able to do that sort of thing.

Wouldn't currently take SB CPUs even, if they would be paying them to me. They are security risk and totally locked down hardware which has no use for future market. LGA1366 is the only solution. as for argument of "no body in their right mind will get the 6c/12t processors" <- I would pay twice the price to get this system than any 4c system even while only TRUE solution is 6c/6t or 8c/8t system which only exists as XEON and those are not capable of speed. E7-8837 is blocked to embedded not sold out and even that is locked which would of been only true core to come out from intel next week.

As for PCIe lanes check again. only thing you will find is 24 lanes max until Q4/2011 and even new is restricted to 32lanes split with 1x and that is not even near LGA1366 40 lanes.

troll is a troll it seems!
by the way to give you a rough idea of processor performance... www.cpubenchmark.net/high_end_cpus.html

look at the 2600k... for 328 dollars that's damn fine performance... so don't say sandy bridge is a "hoax".

and also... when new technologies are developed, people tend to buy the newer technologies because they are better.
Eventually, the 1366 platform will die, with all the 1366 processor owners moving to 2011 or amd's offerings.

And of course, just in case you don't understand why newer things are better, I shall try to explain. As technology progesses, manufacturing processes get smaller, putting out the same performance with less heat output and power required. So, with less heat output and less power required... you can aim for same heat and power draw as the last generation of processors with higher performance.







Enough replying to a troll...
Bye-Bye LGA1366, I hope you aren't condemned to serve an eternity in the firey chasms of hell with all the i-Pods and i-Pads.

Ah, you are one of the paranoid people. If you are concerned about the remote killswitch, that automatically puts you firmly in the "not your average user" camp, because most of us will not care so much about it. Don't see things from your eyes and complain that all other people are insane, sounds just like people enjoying Justin Bieber and High School Musical (I kid ;))

And I wonder why this board can afford to pump out 32 lanes, marketing misinformation, perhaps? GIGABYTE GA-P67A-UD7-B3 LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6G...

I realised I haven't said anything about the 1366 dying :eek: I think the 1366 has served us well, and its time to move on. Much like the 775. Hope it will forever be remembered as a legendary socket, on par with the 775.

Just to question are you one of those people who thinks something is the best because it costs the most?

Hehe in September 2010 i bought LGA1366 and already its going way. Got to love technology. Now I can start thinking about buying a new socket
BTW when is PCI-E 3.0 coming out?

according to wikipedia
PCI Express 3.0 Base specification revision 3.0 was made available in November 2010,
so its just waiting for a chipset to include it really

I am not concern about Anti-theft 3.0, heh, it is a flop and so will be the "DRM" these will be broken really fast and that is when the fun begins. Hardwired hardware directly online. This is what we get when we sum up heavy investors and someone willing to give them a leash, couple decent russian hackers and a japanese bootlegger wanting faster access I can't even imaging what it will do with hands of someone intelligent enough to use it for purpose.

"Quoted out said:
On that gigabyte board. Yes, marketing is misinformative. They "cannot" produce 16x 16x board with any of the crap currently on market. I never said I think like general Average Joe buying hardware. People may think that new is new, but it's old crap sold out on new box with half the quality.
Looks like I am incorrect on Gigabyte effort to bring new seems it's controlled not internally this specific board lanes. 3rd party solution. Really good find there.

"They are security risk"

I actually already could post prove of concept of hacking Sandy Bridge, but I think you can google them yourself. Not everything is told on PR crap and when these news hit to mainline internet perhaps then people will open their eyes.

Actually as for cost I am one of those who believes that what we have now costs 10 times more than it should. They don't pay for the chips we do and these corporations are nagging and yet swimming in a cash.

Since when did TPU care about need?
im not going to get into a debate about what people need. im talking about what games require in order to play them. and they do not require this kind of horsepower. a fast dual core with a $200 gpu work just fine for almost all of the games out there these days. the hardware is far out-pacing software. we have seen this trend in the past couple of years with games being the best indicator.
