Should I wait for Ivy Bridge?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I jumped from 775 to 1155 recently and now I heard Ivy bridge's are coming out now, I just got a budget board with a i5-2500k...
I heard the Ivy bridges will work on a 1155 boards? Or did I get that wrong?

Other question is, I wanna upgrade my motherboard soon, was thinking for a Z68 board, but with Ivy Bridge coming, what should I do? My budget would be about $300 max, I really don't want to get a new processor either, but if I'm going to be buying a $150 motherboard, is it even worth it at this point?

Sig isn't updated fyi.

I've heard some great things about Ivy Bridge and how its going to be worth the wait.
Personally i'll be waiting for Ivy then do a full upgrade (bye bye socket 1366 !)

I'm not sure what the jump will be like from your current build but hopefully others will shed further light.

Whilst we're on the subject -i assume i'll be seeing quite a boost from my current build to Ivy Bridge?

It is true that socket 1155 will support ivy. However, make sure you get a board that has pci-express 3.0, as that will be one of the major features of ivy.

It basically all relies on the mobo manufacturer to release an updated bios when ivy comes out.

Something like this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157265
Will support ivy just fine.


Hope this helps
