SB-E and Ivy confusion... - Para

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Okay, with the release of SB-E and the possibility that there could be 8 core SB-E if they utilized those two empty slots... As well as the Passmark score for the CPU's...
I'm wandering if I should just go with SB-E or Ivy. Will Ivy's have 6 core options? Will they be faster?
How many RAM channels can Ivy handle?

The 2 extra cores are for the Xeon model of the CPU, not SB-E.

Ivy will be a die shrink of SB, so you're looking at 4core/8threads.

You could wait for Ivy Bridge and judge the prices then. If they don't meet your requirements, hopefully Sandy Bridge will be cheaper

Depends on if you just use the rig for gaming. I would go sandy, The 2500k will be more then sufficient

Gaming, folding, HD video and image editing, benchmarking, etc...

Edit: Oh, and of course, heavy multtasking.

Mainstream isn't getting a 6 core even with Haswell. X79 will have 8 core xeons as well as 10 core ibe xeons

Possibility of Ivy Bridge-E(xtended) is...? Possibility it will be a current LGA?

Edit: Screw this, I'm getting SB-E...

Ive got my hopes currently that IB will be a lot lower power like they say and that the IB-E will have an 8 core varient then i'll make the jump from my 920.

They stopped at 6 for SB-E because they didnt want to exceed 130w for consumers.
