Chance of seeing IB around BF3?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Rumors are swirling that Intel wants to release IB early to cut bulldozer off at the knees...

I'm sitting down planning my BF3 rig and I'm pulling my hair out trying to figure out if the new chips might launch in Q4, in which case I'd want to wait... or if I should just go with Sandy Bridge and buy the thing now.


Ahhhhh!!! Opinions?

Too early to plan a rig in my opinion, you'll kill yourself with anxiety and anticipation lol. Just try to wait it out until late September, then see what the technologies are.

I'm getting a 2500k now, with BF3 being one of the games I want to play. I figure that I'll upgrade to Ivy Bridge after a few months of release, maybe a year from now.

Latest chart on IB showed it coming out in March to April 2012. The whole chip-set malfunction with SB pushed it back some. Sandy Bridge E will be the next release from Intel.

Just go with SB. You will be good for a while, and your board should be IB ready.
