Lifespan of LGA1150?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Does anyone know what the lifespan is on socket 1150 or when intel is moving to a new socket type?

I have 0 intentions on replacing my motherboard until windows 7 has a true successor, DDR4 is cheaper and theres a substantial gain to be made performance wise.

So, in the intentions of keeping this board until dies, I want to buy the final, I7 (non extreme) CPU that comes down the road. I realize broadwell is coming but I dont really know too much about everything after it.

Currently have a 4670k @ 4.5/1.31

You plan to keep the socket until it dies for you yet you're asking others to define the lifespan of the socket for you? Why does that matter?

Lol I think he meant how many years does 1150 will keep giving good performance before it becomes....you know tongue.gif

Maybe what I said was confusing. When is intel switching to a new socket for its mainstream desktop processors?

Skylake, 1151 I believe.

This is a question I ask myself as I often get bored and like to upgrade.. In fact I was thinking about replacing me 4770k for the refresh due to the heat issues the 4770k had..

Anyhow.. Your last chance is in fact Broadwell, which may be an improvement no one knows...

For the last what two years now everyone has been holding out to Skylake.. I mean anything between Sandy and Skylake are just small stepping stones so it actually is easy to do that unless you were having a PCI-E bottleneck due to Sandy be PCI-E 2.0 I believe..

HOWEVER, I don't think anyone can say with any certainty and if so I would love to hear it.. That Skylake will blow current chips out of the water.. So we all may be holding our breath.. Intel has been going GPU crazy on their chips and processing power took a back seat.. Will that change with Skylake??

As for DDR4.. DDR3 is still inflated and DDR4 is super new super expensive.. I would say you have 2-3 years before DDR4 is mainstream and worth the upgrade to it unless Skylake changes that..

If you like cutting edge stuff you maybe have 2 years. If you are happy with good performance and middle of the road.. that chip will easily last you 5 years to come unless something drastically improves and from what I've seen in the last 4 years.. I won't be holding my breath. Mind you I've only been heavily into computers for 4 years so ive only seen sandy to now really. I do know that the first gen i5s and i7s to Sandy were a game changer. Maybe Skylake will be one too?

The big thing for me is that the next time I reinstall windows, its going to be on a totally new system (CPU, RAM, Mobo). My current motherboard is nothing special, but its not worth my time and money to invest in a SLI LGA1150 mobo and reinstall right now. Id rather just get the best LGA 1150 CPU (or potentially stick with my 4670k) and ride it out with single GPUs until the new socket is used, DDR4 is standard and at roughly DDR3 prices, and the next OS is tested and in a condition where windows 8 is now.

I like having the latest and greatest, but Im not into throwing away time and money. Im thinking of a total rebuild in early 2016, but we will see.

I used to do Window reformats every 6 months just for the hell of it..
I am looking forward to Windows 10 and hoping it will be a true successor to 7..

Well if that is all you want.. You should be fine.. for the next 3 years with what you have. thumb.gif

The only thing that may change is the GPU, but we shall see. The 9xx series doesnt really phase me, but what comes after will.

Im almost certain the Win 8 license that came with the original DS build was an OEM license, so a reformat to a new motherboard might lead to activation issues as well

When it boils down to it, theres not really a point in even upgrading to a i7 in the next year or so if im basically tossing it in 2016.

My crystal ball says upgrades make sense one more year to 1150 and three more years to 2011v3. But the dates keep slipping out in time.
