3/4 GPU is for gaming, so no interest concerning the X79, Don Karnage talked about multithreaded apps.

Why not comparing Xeon against 1155 too ?

Look at who Don was quoting. He was saying that "x79 is pointless for gaming" and Don jumped him for that statment. Not to mention, Don mentions x3 SLI in his post. rolleyes.gif

Point is... I have yet to see a review that shows any gaming benefit with SB-E at real resolutions. Now, I will concede that you may see some difference with 3/4 GPUs and 3 screens, but I am waiting on a review to confirm if that improvement warrants a purchase from people with hardcore eyefinity/surround setups.

As to your point, if you will be pounding SB-E's 12 threads hard with video encoding work and other heavily multithreaded apps (face it -- the people who will primarily use their CPU for workloads of this nature are rare even on OCN) then YES this is a great CPU. IMO, that is obvious and goes without saying.

Oops, I'm sorry then, I was reading the previous post a bit too fast redface.gif

"(face it -- the people who will primarily use their CPU for workloads of this nature are rare even on OCN)" ya, i'm agree.

X79 for the most part will see motherboards spouting x16/x16, x16/x16/x8, x16/x8/x8/x8, x8/x8/x8/x8 or even x16/x8/x8/x4/x4 variations depending on the PCIe layout of the board, the size of the board, and the manufacturer. For all intents and purposes, in gaming, we are not expecting this to make any difference for the first two GPUs. Very few gamers will be using more than two, and again, this chipset is aimed at ‘no price too much’ style scenarios. Where it will probably be handier is in the land of GPGPU, where CPU to GPU bandwidth may have been the major limitation in running simulations.
http://www.anandtech.com/show/5089/sandy-bridgee-and-x79-the-asus-p9x79-pro-review

It can perform the same in some cases, but not always. The X58 and X79 platforms are about equal in some games because of the native x8/x16/x16. The P55+NF200 performed similarly to the X58 at the time, but now it seems these two points are diverging. From a generalized standpoint I see the X79 as a longer term investment. Incremental platform hoppers aren't going to see much value added because they upgrade far too often to notice the increase in performance.

The difference is minimal at best. A few frames here and there in certain games is not worth investing in SB-E for Gaming strictly. The reality is that after SB-E there is no reason why Haswell would use LGA2011 as Intel has performed several socket introductions within the past three years. So really it isn't a longer-term investment. It's about the same lifespan as LGA1155 with Ivy Bridge. After IB-E it's anyone's guess.

ok I am confuse now, so this new CPU has a new socket? so that means that Ivy will probably has a new socket too????

Yes. LGA2011. Ivy Bridge will use LGA1155 on P67/Z68 and Ivy Bridge Enthusiast will likely use LGA2011 in 2013 or H2/2012/Q4/2012.
