Will LGA 1156 be the shortest lived socket in intel recent history?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I was just reading in the new Maximum PC that LGA1156 is a dead end. They say X58 will have at least 1 more chip upgrade ,but is still a "Dead Man Walking" and that LGA 1155 will quickly replace 1156 ,which kind of ticks me off ,as I just built my Rig 14 months ago. Sandy Bridge looks pretty awesome ,But there is no way I can upgrade a new Motherboard + CPU this year. I guess realistically ,early 2012 would be the time to upgrade to the 2011 Chipset ,especially if it does actually end up having 4 channel memory .

Did you honestly plan to upgrade the cpu before moving to a new setup anyways? That rarely happens due to chipset and BIOS problems anyways. Relax, being a dead socket doesn't change the performance you're obtaining.

Nope, it'll live on...
Look at alot of OCN's members rigs, they use it, and also, i dont see it as a dead man walking, more a dead man running: They Aren't Obsolete

Doesn't this always happen? When the first 775 mobos with the 680i sli chipset came out, after 2 years most of them didnt support the new 45nm CPU so the socket maybe didn't die, but you had to buy a new motherboard anyways.

plus mainstream software still has to close the gap hardware has opened up lately

Tho, 1155 does have some performance gains, its still limited by the same things that 1156 was. Still only has 16 pci-e lanes, and still dual channel DDR3.

1156 socket is fine, and will be fine for a while. I don't know why, it being dead, is such a big deal. If it runs everything you want and still has plenty of room to spare, there's no need to worry about it.

Doesnt tick me off. I spent around
275 for the cpu and motherboard
99 on the ram
150 on PSU
50 on hdd
250 on gpu
60 on case

All in all i get a rig that performs just as close to a x58 socket for less. I am still able to reach 4-ghz no problem. Play all the games i want, encode videos just as quick as x58 platforms. overall i don't see myself updating until complete socket revamp.

I have 1156 and i am not going to upgrade for a least 2 years. Also i just game and i don't think games are going to be any more cpu hungry then they are now, my gpu will be needing a upgrade but thats it........... GTX590 (:

I think it's rare that any of us 'overclockers' really need to upgrade during the lifetime of a chipset anymore. Unless the 1366 hexcores drop significantly in price, I'll be sticking with my overclocked i7-920 for the lifespan of 1366.
