is ths going to support bus overclocking?? if not i wont bother. this new socket every 6 monhs is BS 775 lasted how many years?? along with amd's sockets. it is possible to keep a socket and make new cpu's/chipsets but there is less money in it so intel goes where the money is

Q: Why does intel develop the very best socket they can for each CPU architecture?

A: Because those who upgrade CPUs represent a miniscule portion of the market and will not be catered to in a way that restricts any development, whatsoever.

It makes perfect sense as unfortunate as it is. If you're that upset about it, go with AMD.

oh and mike, you're actually wrong. they've integrated so much of the motherboards features into the CPU, that they just cant swap them around easily. if they want to add more PCI-E lanes onto a mobo, then the CPU needs to have them built in. otherwise, using an older CPU on the newer board would result in whatevers on those lanes, not working.


basically, progress has shot compatibility in the foot. the more they integrate into the CPU, the harder it is to have seperate generations compatible.

i always upgrade mobo and CPU at the same time anyway.

long live AMD?

I guess grabbing my on-the-way 990X was the right move after all.

Maybe nowadays performance progress is so insignificant that updating mobo's only is completely geek and nonsense, and socket backward compatibility is a non issue. Update at least after 2 years and you will be fine: new cpu and new mobo.

Being sort of ironic...

Why does Intel change sockets? Because most people buy Intel due to name brand recognition, and the perception that AMD is a knock-off, no-name brand.
They have the market cornered, they can do what they want.
And what they want is all of our $$$.

I think x79 might just kill Bulldozer dead. We need some performance leaks.

I don't, I buy a board, 2-3 cpu's for that board and then upgrade everything.

I certainly don't mind putting the $ for an upgrade but with computers being as fast as they are right now, I don't see any point in moving up. I say that now, but I'm sure i'll end up with an x79 socket system.

Fucking hell Intel, STICK TO A FUCKING SOCKET.

How come they made LGA775 last so long, then in the last 3 years or so we've had 1156, 1336 and 1155.
heh, yeah been thinking the same. Already the switch to LGA1366 costs a small fortune and LGA1155 is just uber crap.

btw, funny article. It shows no decent PCIe, no native supports, no BLCK and memory is rated at '2666Mhz' now, if this is any to believe the memory should actually be 2122Mhz native as this "2666" is just doubled "1333" and all high-end LGA1366 parts actually were 1066Mhz not 1333Mhz. Where's the triple-channel boards ?

-edit- O forgot... Forced PHY, lol, manufacturers are gonna be shouting "Why, Why, Why" funny how dirty deep Intel fights against RealTek and Marvell knowing that both companies deliver 50 times better network controllers.

Since, if this is the crap they are offering they can forget 1 customer from here moving to AMD CPUs.

We're saying the same thing. They integrate and modify with no regard for CPU upgrade paths.

Thus will more likely outperform Bulldozer, but it will probably be super expensive.

So im going to stick with AMD's Bulldozer when the next gen stuff rolls around. Probably will just buy a board and stick my 1055T in it until i grab a Bulldozer chip.:)

looks good from here something I'll likely wait for. My i7 is going strong and this would make a nice amount of time to build up funds for a cpu/mobo/mem swapout.

I didn't get my i7 rig all that long ago anyways. (was on 775 for a long time)

still hoping bulldozer comes out and performs as they say it will. It's been a long time since I've been on an amd rig and I do miss it.

He's exaggerating, obviously. But if you want some proof, take a look at the Crosshair IV Extreme. Asus decided to use an Intel NIC instead of a realtek, and what a piece of crap that thing is...

I think I will stick with my system for the full three years rather than buy into this, even though it may perform much better than my set up. I think it will be a long time before there will be a very significant change in performance. I guess the only thing that might be worth investing in is better cooling for now if you have a decent set up.

Nice with the selective memory loss. Both AM2-3 and 775 went through so many chipset compatibility hurdles that it was akin to changing sockets. Many, many people would just buy a new board even when they weren't forced to to get the full use of a cpu's new features. There's nothing here to bitch about.
