1366 or 1155? - Page 2

post #11 of 13
go with an 1155 socket and get a new gen3 mobo so it will work with the new sandy bridge-e chips.

maybe a cheap i5 2500k and then buy the new cpu when it comes out which will save you money on a mobo

Edit:Again, LGA 1155 is not Sandy Bridge E compatible.
yeah my bad, i was thinking of ivy bridge

Sandy Bridge is out now. Sandy Bridge E is essentially Sandy Bridge with more cores and quad channel RAM, so it's more an extension of Sandy Bridge, whereas Ivy Bridge is more a "new" thing (though it's still the same architecture).

It'd be hard to compare them, as either will be better depending on the tasks. Think of LGA 1155 vs the hex core (not quad core) LGA 1366 CPUs. It'll be that all over again. Ivy Bridge is expected to be faster core for core, but Sandy Bridge E (again, not the quad core models though) will come out better in highly threaded stuff due to the extra cores compensating.
