What's the big deal about Socket 2011? - Page 2

post #11 of 22
step1: new architecture + chipset + socket
step2: port a beefier version of the architecture + chipset to another socket around 6 months later
step3: die shrink step1 around 12 months later
step4: die shrink step2 around 18 months later
repeat from step 1

and these are the rules:
multi thread performance: step4 > step2 > step3 > step1
single thread performance step4 = step3 > step2 = step1

they have been doing that for the last 6 years and by all indication will keep doing so.

The big deal is the multithreaded performance. It's nuts. If you use things like photoshop, movie editing software anything that can take advantage of the 6 cores / 12 threads you are in for a treat. It also overclocks well. And I mean running quad SLI with that CPU should mean no bottleneck... ever.

Isn't that what they said about 1366, then 1155 came out and smoked all but the highest clocked 32nm chips on exodic cooling thus revealing that 1366 was actually holding back the gpus?

 

I'm waiting for IB, because in some games even at 5.2GHz my i5-2500k is the bottleneck. SBe will only increase PCIe lanes, it's actually slightly slower than 1155 it seems per clock per core.

I guess that's true. But everything always gets better in the near future. You could wait for years but there will always be something better. Intels next chip will be a better investment for gamers I think but if you have the money I wouldn't not get 2011, it still is an awesome performer plus some of those mainboard's are just plain nice.

Will Ivy bridge coming in march have 8 cores?
When will we see the first 22nm 8 core processor? Should it work just fine on the new socket 2011 x79 chipsets?
Its a lot of money for a lga 2011... i am using adobe premiere pro cs5.5 and photoshop a lot... but photoshop works good on what i have... now
is sandybridge-e like the second form of i-7? I thought that there had already been two versions of i7 chips... I know the moble section is just not going through the second version... but is sandybridge-e the 2nd or 3rd I-7 form?

I personally doubt that Ivy Bridge will have a 8 core model, then again the current generation smoked the last gen stuff at a lower price. And Sandy Bridge-E thing is for people who want the fastest computer, barring costs and "reasonable" sense.

1155 Ivy probably won't have a six core, but I'd be really shocked if 2011 IBe didn't have an eight core...

 

People like to waste money, or spend it when it's needed... Either way people would buy an eight core IBe chip for $1000.

I have come to my conclusion...
I don't have the money to go for 2011
I think 1155 might have to do... and the bonus is not only will i have a good system... but i get to upgrade in just a few months to a processor that should for all purposes be another25% faster or more. smile.gif If not... I don't see the purpose in the upgrade. I don't think they will be able to put 8 cores in the 1155... but i do expect 8 cores on a 22nm lga 2011.... but you might not see that for another year...
can't wait that long..

intel talked about haswell mainstream version being 4 core so very low chance of that happening indeed

What is the chance socket 2011 will have 8 cores? It won't have the 8 cores till next november?
