Will new up-coming Ivy Bridge-E CPUs bring new Mobos and RAMs alongside?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Well, Let me notify first that I'm NOT asking about compatibility, I know that it's going to be the same LGA2011 Socket and all new up-coming Ivy Bridge-Es(4920K, 4930K and 4960X) will be backwards-compatible with current 2011 sockets.

The real meaning behind this question is: up-coming Ivy Bridge-Es are going to natively support DDR3 1866MHz RAMs from previous 1600MHz, (http://www.cpu-world.com/Compare/586/Intel_Core_i7_i7-3930K_vs_Intel_Core_i7_i7-4930K.html) which in its turn(IMO) will bring new motherboards that will support 1866MHz natively and whien in its turn will innovate new RAMs that will run @ 2600MHz CL9 time.

This is because as of now for high-end machines 2400MHz CL9 is that max that most motherboards support, ans this makes me to think that if CPU steps up and bring new Bus Controller which will support 1866MHz rams this should lead famous RAM companies such as Corsair, OCZ or G. SKILL produce new RAMs that will run at higher clock rate by default at the same CL as now 2400MHz Rams do at 1.65v

Note* I'm not CERTAIN in my thought at all, these are all just assumptions and thoughts I've got in my mind, I'm not guaranteeing about this. So... does new Ivy-Bridge-Es also mean new Mobos that match up with CPU and also new RAMs to decorate the rest?

The reason I've had this tickling in my head is because I'm just about a few steps away from building my chosen rig which is about 3000$+
so I was thinking should I buy Mobos Rams and the rest and keep them and wait until the new CPU releases so I purchase it put in my build to complete it, or I should wait till the CPUs will come out(btw: I wanna get 4930K or 3960X as they come out) and buy the rest parts at the same time?

Thanks for considering your time and taking a look at my question, cheers! thumb.gifrolleyes.gif

I would wait until closer to CPU release time before buying anything.

Some of the bigger manufactureres may bring out a couple of refreshes of some exisitng boards with a couple of new new options (like Wireless AC) but I wouldnt think their would be a ton of new mobos. You normally only get that when the socket has changed.
