Upgrade Time (SB or not?) - Page 2

post #11 of 24
Ivy bridge will use a different socket than Sandy Bridge. In this case i believe that the Sandy Bridge upgrade with a gtx 570 would be a great choice

Well according to Wikipedia (yeah I know its Wikipedia...) they say it will continue to use socket 1155:

Quote:
Ivy Bridge processors will employ a maximum of 24 EUs graphics sub-system (double that of Sandy Bridge)[36] and also provides DirectX 11 support, rather than the older DirectX 10.1 graphics technology that will be featured in the first batch of Sandy Bridge processors, while retaining its LGA 1155 socket compatibility.

And you know that because? Frankly, we have no idea what's going to happen with Ivy Bridge. We don't even know what socket (or sockets as the case may be) it will be released on. Some people expect Intel not to release high end Sandy Bridge chips, but early articles from AnandTech and the like show that higher end chips are expected mid-2011. Whether it'll be server only or if it would also cater to high end desktop consumers, we still don't know. A lot of things can happen between now and Ivy Bridge's release and that's not even considering how Bulldozer will affect the market. We've got early performance numbers for Sandy Bridge care of AnandTech, etc and initial indications are, it'll be a good upgrade for LGA-775 users particularly those still rocking dual-cores. Bulldozer and Ivy Bridge, though, are wait and see.

As far as motherboards go, from what I have seen [mostly] everyone is complaining about the fact that Sandy Bridge boards will have dual-channel memory instead of tri-channel and less PCI lanes, those 2 seem to come up alot... so is it really that big of a difference?

Also are there any reviews out on the new boards?

So you are saying that Ivy Bridge (enthusiast) which is taking over for 1366 is going to downgrade to dual channel memory and less PCI-E lanes? I'm pretty confident that it's going to retain the enthusiast characteristics of 1366...

No, hardly any difference between dual channel and tri channel memory. The general consensus is that the amount of PCI lanes on SB only matters with 3 or more GPU's. I am personally concerned about this because I was thinking of going Tri Sli and this would be a downer.

Well from that quote I posted above, the way I am reading it makes it sound like Ivy Bridge will retain the same socket compatibility and work with the 1155 socket, although I may be reading it wrong.

However what they could mean by that is for instance how 1156/1366 is now, with most of the i7 lineup using the 1366 socket but a few i7 chips that work on 1156 (the 870 and 875k), so maybe they will release some Ivy Bridge CPU's that work on 1155 but again like 1156/1366 most of them will be on yet another socket released in the future.

Actually, it's much more likely that Ivy Bridge chips will be released for both mainstream (probably LGA-1155) and enthusiast (probably LGA-2011) markets.
