Ivy Bridge questions

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I am thinking about upgrading and getting an ocz vertex 3 ssd. My question is that if I buy a z68 mobo today with maybe a 2500k and some ram will it be compatable with the upcoming ivy bridge? Or should I just wait a year and see where things are or should I get a socket 1366... tho I thought they are phasing them out??

I would just wait till it comes out. We don't now what any of the components will be like when they are released or what is going to be compatable. Here is some info on it though. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sandy_Bridge#Ivy_Bridge

well that didnt make my decision any easier... do u really believe the socket 2011 will be that much better or become a future proof solution?

...there is no such thing as future proofing. Every year or two something way better is going to be released. So unless you are not happy with what you have now, wait or get a 2500k.

If you buy into the cutting edge it should keep you going for about 5 years at the absolute maximum. But it all comes down to usage.

Not much point buying into 1366 though. Not with SB, Bulldozer and IB here and on the way.

Yes, Ivy Bridge will debut on the LGA 1155 platform, and will perfectly compatible with existing P67, H67 and Z68 chipset motherboards.

Socket 2011 will be geared for the enthusiast chips, there will likely be some mainstrean 2011 cpus but the 6 core (or more core?) will require the 2011 socket.
If you won't be looking at the $500-$1000 cpus 1155 & ivy bridge mainstream will probably be the way to go.

I'm not really concerned future proofing myself with the processor.. its more about a socket.. I want to get a mobo and have that mobo last a long time and update the proc. But it seems that i should get a good processor and upgrade the mobo? Im thinking ill just wait
