The Official Ivy Bridge Speculation Thread

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Based on your expertise, know how, and Intel's previous patterns at launch:
  1. What speeds will they come in?
  2. How much will the CPU's cost?
    How much will mobo's cost?
    Will enthusiast mobo's be released at launch?
    How much will ram cost?
    Will the best RAM be released at launch?
  3. Is it better to wait a few months before new steppings come out?
  4. In your opinion is it worth upgrading from i7s running @ 4+Ghz?
  5. How well do you think they will overclock?
  6. Will PCI Express 3 come with the launch?

From the limited info ive read, id say they are much like the sandybridge but will use a smaller achitecture and come in 6/8 core versions.

Ivy will mostly be an high end product with sandybridge continuing with the main stream users. So id expect mobo prices to be in the high $300 to over $500 mark and cpus starting from $400 all the way up to $1500.

Asus and gigabyte are always fast off the mark with new boards, when sandy was comming out these two companies were shipping boards prior to the cores release date. If your after some more high end boards like from evga youll be looking at a couple months after the release date for them.

Considering how well sandy overclocks id say ivy would be much the same, but since the architecture is smaller it means less voltage to play with safely.

Thats my guesses

+rep for jump-starting this thread. Will 8 cores be released on launch or several months later?

If Ivy Bridge were to be a high end product where does the Sandy Bridge-E LGA 2011 come in?
post #5 of 12
unless it comes with ddr4 and pci 3 - I will pass
post #6 of 12
ivy on the 1155 platform will be exclusively quadcore :/

so prolly 400 range for the cpu

it's projected to be around a 30% increase in clock for clock performance vs current sb chips

so it's really up to you if you think it's worth it...

i might wait for 2011 chips to come around which is sandy bridge- e and on

Wha...?

I did catch that article, but it didn't state that Ivy was going to be 30% faster clock for clock, just in general (higher clocks, more cores, etc, etc).

So Ivy Bridge will come in two different platforms/sockets? One will work with the current SB platform and comes in Quad Core only and the other will be a new socket with 6/8 cores?
post #9 of 12
yes... it will come out for both 1155 and 2011...

it is suppose to be clock for clock i am going to fetch the article (or try)

Introducing Intel Socket LGA1155 and LGA2011

Next year Intel is going to introduce two new sockets to the CPU world. These sockets will replace the current LGA1156 and LGA1366 sockets. The pin count will be 1155 for the mid-range socket and 2011 (ironic as it’s coming out in 2011) for the high-end. The names of these new platforms are Sandy Bridge and Sandy Bridge E (enthusiast) respectively. The sockets will not be compatible with current generation CPUs and current boards will not be compatible with the new CPUs. Sandy Bridge and Sandy Bridge E CPUs will be running on a 32nm die and both platforms will have memory, PCI-E, and graphics controllers on a single die. The LGA1156 CPUs had the CPU and controllers on different dies just placed in the same CPU. This can only be a good thing. Both sockets will also support Hyper threading and Turbo Boost. The LGA 2011 socket will be much larger than the current 1366 socket to accommodate the extra pins.

There is no announced CPU names or clock speeds for the new parts yet, but we can expect them to be launched early next year. The LGA1155 might show up in Q4’10, but that is not known yet. No other information is known about these new platforms yet, but keep an eye out for more news as I find it.

Any other adopters of either of these sockets really annoyed by this? I expected at least a few years of support for both sockets, but we’re not even getting that. The 1366 socket came out mid-08 with the 1156 following a year later. While the LGA775 socket lasted a long time and AMD is still supporting its old sockets with backwards compatible CPUs. There doesn’t seem to be any major new features with the new socket, but maybe Intel is still hiding some information and will reveal more later on. I hope they go triple-channel DDR3 for the 1155 though it would be a nice improvement and lets hope the 2011 CPUs run cooler than the current 1366 ones.
