Last month, there reports of Intel pushing its Sandy Bridge-E enthusiast desktop platform to 2011. It was originally scheduled for 2011, but was reportedly delayed to 2012 because of issues Intel was facing with its flagship desktop chipset, codenamed Patsburg-D. Intel will be launching Sandy Bridge-E this year, but the first wave of motherboards will feature Patsburg-A/B chipsets, which have fewer SATA 6 Gb/s ports than Patsburg-D.

No. Ivy Bridge is the revision of Sandy Bridge. Ivy Bridge will be launching at the end of this year. Sandy Bridge-E will be LGA2011 and is releasing at the end of this year.

no, IB will fit current 1155 socket mobo's, will probably need a Bios Update though.

on topic, havn't noticed before, but the >= signs on the 2600k might suggest Intel will release another 1155 SB with higher clocks before IB

Who cares about SB-E ... I want Ivy Bridge: quad core i5 with less than 35W of actual power consumption under load and I don't mean one of the frequency-challenged models. It's silly to think that back in the early 90s the 5V 60/66 MHz abominations that was the original Pentium were considered "unreasonably hot", with power consumption about on par with today's Atom.

I appreciate all the extra power new CPUs bring us but realistically I rarely even push my old C2D duo to the max so I want reasonable power usage under load, not the absurdly high voltage and frequency so I honestly don't care about ultimate performance enthusiast models.

I'll rejoice when they finally make a chip that is at least comparable with early C2D duo/quads in terms of computing power that can operate with passive cooler only, no case fans whatsoever. That, and silent GPU roughly on par with HD5770, would be my dream setup.

Not to shit on your parade, but in this world of technology it gets bigger, stronger, faster. With that comes challenges; biggest of all is heat. You are better off getting mainstream chips if you want complete silence. I have a C2D like you and I still love it. Overclocked it very mildly for my needs, but nothing that would endanger the longevity of the processor.

Ivy Bridge will bring faster models while trying to stay in the same TDP. I'm hoping something in the 65w range can be as powerful as my E8400. If I can find that, then it will be my new CPU for sure.

Not to shit on your parade, but 35W Core i3-2100T is already way more powerful than E8400.
The point I was making is that the E8400 back in it's day was touted as a gaming processor when it first came out, a pretty high-end product.
I don't know how the i3 2100T performs compared to the E8400, but by the look of it, it is mainly used in HTPC systems. Everyone has different needs, for me, it's gaming period. I do not warrant an i3-2100T being an upgrade worthy investment because I would have to get a MB and RAM to go along with it which ups the cost and right now I have no need to have such a system. When prices get lowered even further when BD comes out, then I might consider doing an upgrade along those lines.

"Sandy Bridge-E 2011 Launch Put on Slide, Ivy Bridge in March-April 2012"

Also, the chart shows Ivy Bridge between Q1 and Q2 2012, with "March-April" between parenthesis. Don't know if I misterpreted the chart, though.

So other than PCI 3.0 support is Ivy Bridge expected to improve on SB at all in terms of processing ability?

Whatever I have, I use to it's full extent, so bring on the SB-E!

Though, if BD is decent enough, will be a good holdover til Patsburg-D/T/X is ready.

Jizzler +1 :toast: , Nice to see Intel stream lining and removing clutter, jsut like Mc D with burgers and Apple with iPhones, few models and lots of sales.

Bring in the big gun cpu's, not the pea shooters.
Let ARM deal with the pea shooter, they are good with that.

I do. I couldn't give a shit less about power consumption. I am waiting for them to release 8 core 16 thread SB-E, then I'll upgrade. (Unless BD defies all of my expectations and actually kicks Intel's ass, then I'll move to that.)

intel did specifically mention the power savings that the move to "tri-gate" 22 nm process should bring. I hope this means "fast enough" consumer systems will be coming down in power consumption and become smaller over time.

ditto, and I'm expecting that by the time that cpu comes out, all the quirks/early adoption issues are dealt with as well.

not that my current cpu isn't performing. It's just that I feel i have a graphics solution that will last me quite some time and I want a platform that will do the same.
