Any plans for Intel to release a six or eight core CPU in 2011 - Page 2

I realize the fallacy of using Wikipedia as a reference, but I do like to check the source articles because you can get a lot of good information there.

From your second article:
Quote:
A third party gave us this information - Intel won't comment on unreleased products.

Also, if you'll read on, LGA 2011 will have higher than 4 cores and is the replacement for 1366. Which reinforces exactly what I stated earlier and exactly what Intel has stated about Sandy Bridge. Sandy Bridge is 4 cores and under and is the mainstream socket.

As far as the first article is concerned, there's nothing in there that states anything other than speculation. The author makes it very clear:
Quote:
andy Bridge-EP, the mainstream server version will not arrive till 2H11 – most likely in Q3. Sandy Bridge-EP will retain the same microarchitecture, but with a different system agent. Sandy Bridge-EP is expected to feature 8 cores, 16MB of L3 cache (although some rumors put this at 20MB), 4 DDR3 memory controllers, 2 QuickPath 1.1 links and 32 lanes of PCI-Express 3.0.

Everything he says is just speculation. It's "EXPECTED" to have 8 cores for the SERVER variant. The truth is, until it's heard from Intel, it's just rumors and speculation thrown about on the net.

Also, when it comes to wikipedia, take anything that hasn't been stated specifically by the company with a grain of salt.

Hell, Wikipedia stated Bulldozer was going to be 28nm....it's not...it's 32nm. It also stated the desktop version of Bulldozer would have Quad Channel DDR3 2Ghz support...it doesn't...it in fact has Dual Channel DDR3 1866 support. It also stated Bulldozer would be backwards compatible with AM3. It's not. See?

The thing about a site that's updated by everyone in general is that when everyone starts to believe rumors, they think it's news but it's just a rumor. I could say Intel is rumored to release a 10 core variant of SB and spread it around like wildfire with no proof and within a week that may actually appear on Wikipedia.

Fact is, Intel has already stated that the mainstream SB will not have anything higher than 4 cores. I trust that more than all the rumors on the net being that it's their company and their product.

I was under the impression that Sandy Bridge referred to both LGA 1155 and LGA 1356. And that LGA1356 was meant to replace 1366 and will support 4+ cores.

Lets just hope Intel does release at least a large new batch of six core Processors or a couple 8 cores because I dont want to wait and i am sure other people agree with me for Intel just to release quad core cpus for all of 2011. We need more six and eight cores lol.

IB will have 6-8 cores for sure!
