Earlier this week, Intel launched the fastest desktop processors under its Core i7 "Sandy Bridge-E" platform, with is partners, motherboard, memory and cooler vendors. Less than a week into its shelf life, Sandy Bridge-E already has a successor taking shape at Intel, slated for the fourth quarter of 2012, but that's far from being the most interesting part of this news. According to a new internal slide scored by a source at XFastest, Ivy Bridge-E will be compatible with today's Intel X79 platform, and LGA2011 socket.

Suddenly, Sandy Bridge-E makes for a sweeter deal because its platform longevity (for upgrades) is at least two years. Ivy Bridge-E, like Ivy Bridge LGA1155, will be built on the 22 nanometer silicon fabrication process. We don't expect Ivy Bridge-E to be much more than an optical shrink of today's Sandy Bridge-E silicon, but the shrink could leave scope for enabling some of its components otherwise locked out for the Core processor family. Sandy Bridge-E silicon physically holds 8 cores and 20 MB of L3 cache, but the fastest Core processor based on it has just 6 of those cores, and 15 MB of L3 enabled. The source at XFastest says that while Ivy Bridge-E is slated for Q4 2012, the LGA1155 Ivy Bridge will launch across Q1 and Q2 of 2012 (March~April).

3D Transistors as per IvyBridge perhaps? Should help reduce the TDP of these CPU's for starters :)

ooooooh.

This needs to be confirmed. One of the reasons i planned on not going x79 was due to no clear upgrade path (a la x58). But if this is true....... I'll be getting my x79 hat back on.

Do i need x79? Hell no.
Do i want it? Yup.

My countries economy is screwed, if i buy my SB-E rig, I'm doing my part to help out. :D

X58 is still a solid base, not much to gain with the power consumption and gaming advantage (lack of) on SB-E. I'd go SLi, then do Ivy-E. :)

Nice, :rockout: my Rampage IV Extreme is in the mail, and now the investment just seems more justified, it's also a good cadence for system upgrades, and no need to replace neither my P67, nor my X79 boards this time around ;)

I agree, that and Ivy-E with Extreme chips (if they OC better).

I don't know where do these people get the idea to upgrade as far as to SB-E... especially when they already have top-end, more suited chips like a 2600k or a Gulftown 980x... the benches are out. It only pulls more power while working hotter. Doesn't help in games and so it's a waste for gaming.

Yeah, but a boon for those of us that do heavy encoding.

Think Intel knows it made too big hype about their Sandy-e's and now to save the company they have finally done something that benefit user with this same socket AMD trick. Good stuff Intel.

+1 Wile E
Yup it might not be good for gaming but map developers and other can use anything that Intel can put together and then still need DrQueue to string several pc's together and do a decent render.

Online Clouds is obsolete / buggy / useless, home user would need all the power they can micro data center / home HPC themselves even if using DrQueue to render with. Home pc is not dead, it is just getting started.

1Q 2013 they all should be out and hopefully reasonably priced for me replacing my system too.

Although if they say some thing about a new slot i might wait for that lol.

Good news but I fear Intel has alienated most people with the SB-E pricing.

Even I can't validate spending $550 on a CPU.

Your right no sane reason.....but I will anyway:) just waiting for cofirmation that sbe will be faster than ivy. Want the full featured boards and chipset too.

4th Q 2012 is a long way off. And with Overpriced SB-E's out right now, it sounds to me it's a great time to do a minor or massive upgrade to either a Core i7 2600k and/or Core i5 2500 and/or AMD FX 8150/20. Depends on your price range.

Who said those are overpriced? When Intel announced the SB-E, the people, who follow or even know Intel's products estimated how much it will cost.
