Hmm. Odd that they made the retention bracket detachable... but now I'm wondering if they'll have native USB 3.0 in the southbridge.

Going from that picture, x68 is the SB ala 1156 and 1155...

Since there is only one chipset.... how many PCIe lanes will be on the CPU?

Or will they load up the X68 with lanes and use QPI to connect it?

To answer most of your questions: (1) a fridge cannot cool a PC (2) 64-bit OS for over 3.4GB (3) If a PCIe card fits, it should work (4) Resolution, not screen size (5) Report, not respond to Spam (6) Single-Rail/Non-Modular PSUs are not always better than Multi-Rail/Modular (7) Sequential does not matter as much as random for OS drives (8) Requirements come before hardware for servers

12 core CPUs by the end of the year?

Maybe I shouldn't splurge on Sandy Bridge...

ID wait to see what AMD pulls out of sleeve with bulldozer
Might be an awesome bang for the buck.
Ive been hearing rumors about bulldozer for YEARS now.

Yeah, I know, I'm asking are they going to make USB 3.0 native to it this time?

The CPU has a 32-lane controller, as stated in the article. The chipset itself typically has 4-8 more to connect 3rd party controllers.

I dunno about this...

Well, it's not a BD motherboard as the socket layout is different from G34 and distinctly Intel. Probably was shown at the same event as the other boards though.

Interesting. So this will be the successor to the X58 (LGA1366). Hexacore, Octocore, or 12 core processors. AMD does seem to have a head start on the multi-core race.

Intel has had native octo core CPUs for nearly a year, and AMDs 12 cores are two hex-core dies on one package.

The diagrams I've seen show PCI-E 3.0 to be integrated into the CPUs, 40 lanes (though DMI might take some of those). DMI will connect the chipset and QPI will connect to other CPUs.

Not sure how accurate this is, but it seems plausible, given the increase in pin/pad count.

This, AFAIK Sandy Bridge-EN however will still use QPI for connecting to other cpu's in multi-cpu configs.

IIRC it is touch and go because of Intel wanting to push light peak. It is however defiantly having Sata 6 and PCIe 3

No, we can't. Intel has some prototype manycore processors for development and testing. That is not even close to consumer use for quite a few more years.

And there are PLENTY of uses for an 80-core CPU.... go see any server farm or data center.

Sun Niagra has 128 threads - not 100 cores but just thought I'd mention it.

The perfect upgrade to the X58. Can't wait for this.

I hope this platform utilizes Intel Light Peak.

Anyone else feel AMD is going to struggle. I just have this horrible feeling they can't get back on top now.
