[WCCFtech] ASRock Displays its Flagship X79 Extreme7 Motherboard for Sandy Bridge-E - Page 6

post #51 of 58
Very cool looking board. However, as mentioned the number of DIMM's is, well... odd.

Noob question:
I have a feeling SB-E is the upgrade ive been waiting for, but what is the future for socket 2011? Sounds like Ivy will be on 1155... i think? Correct me if im wrong.

-What upgrade route will be the most future proof? As you can see in my sig, i got kinda burned with LGA 1156.

You can never tell with intel, but chances look pretty good that there will at least be Ivy Birdge-E on LGA 2011. Whether it will work with the X79 chipset or not, who knows.

IB-E might make an appearance late next year, otherwise it might not be until early 2013.

3 channel ram, like the x58 boards.

No, just extra storage. Still quad channel for 4 lanes.

Most x79 desktop boards i've seen actually only have 4 lanes, so the 6 here was actually courteous.

Ivy is 1155, Ivy-E is 2011. No different than Sandy Bridge.

If you buy into either 1155 or 2011 Sandy right now, you are covered for the next few years as the Ivy procs will be drop in upgrades.

You can *probably* expect 6 cores from Ivy's LGA-1155 CPUs and 12 cores for the LGA-2011 Ivy Xeons.
