New sockets with Intel 'Dunnington' and 'Nehalem'?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello, everyone.

I read that Intel is going to release a new line of processors with Quick Path technology to replace FSB; and six cores and L3 cache etc., in the second half of this year.

I am planning to buy a new rig that I hope will remain future proof for at least 2 years, when it comes to processor socket and motherboard architecture.

My question is, is it possible that with the arrival of these new processors, the entire architecture and socket structures will be revamped and the LGA775 mobo I'll buy, will become outdated in about three months?

Thanks in advance!

The new chips will NOT be LGA775, so if you are wanting to future proof, it is best to wait a few months.

Correct. 775 will started to be replaced later this year but won't really begin until next year. The new macroarchitecture will be based on Nehalem. The first Nehalem parts are due at the end of this year. However, they will be mostly server and highend parts. Mainstream parts won't be out until 2009.
Once again...

yes because the new architecture will support LGA1336 pins as apposed to LGA775.

And it will require a ICH10 Chipset. Which is exactly the reason im holding out on my next motherboard upgrade.

Hope this helped.

Thanks a lot, all of you! I presently have an ancient Intel 845 chipset mobo and a Pentium 4. Think I'll just put some cheap stuff into the old biege box and hang back for 3-4 months before making the big purchase..

Thanks again!

Dunnington is a server processor with 6 Penryn-based cores. It is designed to slot directly into current server sockets so that customers can step up directly to Dunnington. This is what Pat Gelsinger said at IDF so I don't suppose he's lying.

But, wait, it gets even better. We're very excited to have the Dunnington six-core product, the first ever Intel architecture six-core product. And we have a wafer here of the Dunnington processor, 1.9 billion transistors based on the Penryn microarchitecture, 16 megabytes level 3 cache, and, best of all, it's socket compatible with the quad-core Caneland platform. So customers can immediately upgrade, drop into the same socket, from Tigerton to Dunnington and get a substantial improvement in performance without any additional validation or deployment cost coming to them. Caneland platform gets even better with the Dunnington processor.
Nehalem on the other hand will have various different sockets, LGA1366 for workstation/server and high-end desktop, LGA1066 for mid-end desktop and laptops, and LGA715 for smaller applications.

www.nehalemnews.com is a great blog to stay up to date on any Nehalem developments.
