Yep.
That was back when the butthurt 1366 owners couldn't accept that their platform is being replaced.

Yeah I'm a 1366 owner but it's enough for what I do.

It is definitely NOT a downgrade but it is nearly a side-grade. Not a big enough difference to really warrant a platform switch in my opinion.

Yep, definitely more of a sidegrade for current X58 users, but if you are buying new I'd definitely go for a SB system I think

We are still on the topic that 1155 has fewer PCI/PCI-e slots than 1366 and less RAM slots in general.

If I wanted to sidegrade to a 1155 for the faster CPU standard I'd rather want a board that at least have enough slots for me to go back to SLI while still keeping my soundcard.
I have the P5N72-T PREMIUM which is a strikingly similar board to your old board btw.
It too has the "3-way SLI" that ends up loosing the dedicated soundcard solution.

Annnndddd that's what the Big Bang's For.




Or maybe the Maximus IV?




And it has already been proved that triple channel memory doesn't offer a performance increase above dual channel, why do you think Ivy has dual?

I still agree with this though, 1366 and 1155 are so close there is really no difference. I just wanted to point out that there are SLI/CFX options when going Sandy.

I never said you should, and rightfully you shouldn't unless you feel the desire to (for whatever reasons), but while we're on that note, ask any Sandy Bridge owner if they'd rather have LGA 1366 instead. I imagine almost all, if not all, would say no? It'd be a downgrade for most of them (the exception being if they fold/encode/render heavily and go with a six core offering, not your standard quad core variants or whatever). Likewise, it'd be an upgrade to do the reverse.

PCI and PCI Express slots are up to the board, not the platform. Part of the reason you see less PCI slots is probably because it is being phased out (?), and LGA 1155 boards are newer.

RAM slots are sort of a two way street. You have more RAM slots, but you also need to buy more for that to be a factored difference. Most people just buy two RAM modules on four slot boards as it is. That being said, I'd like six slot boards with dual channel (for being able to stick with two/four module setups if desired). It's probably down to the MCH (either Northbridge chipset or the IMC in newer CPUs) preventing this? I mean, for LGA 2011, it will be quad channel, but is it going to be four or eight slots? I imagine that many modules/channels is tough to do? That could be why we hardly see them.

A faster CPU isn't a sidegrade. It's an upgrade. You just made my point.

Remember, I am not talking about if it's enough to justify an upgrade to you. Understandably so, it is probably not. After gains for cost is factored in, to many current LGA 1366 owners, there's not a big compelling reason to go for it. At the same time, if you did do it, it would still be an upgrade, not a sidegrade, and certainly not a downgrade. There's a difference between a bad jump and calling something else no more than your equal. That's the point I'm trying to make.

Ah, now that is something that works for you, but it's not necessarily a reason LGA 1155 is no better. Afterall, like I've been saying, my setup works for me, so I stick with it. That's reason enough. I don't think LGA 1366 or LGA 1155 are no better in general though, nor do I need to down on them to justify my complacency with what I have.

It's common knowledge that sandy bridge processors are faster...
It's a matter of how much you get in return for the money you pay, which thus makes it a sidegrade.

I don't quite agree with this statement. In that case an HD 6970 would be serious downgrade compared to an HD 5870/6950.

Depends on how much you paid for both components

If you sold your 5870 for $170 and bought a 6970 for $300 it would cost you net $130. In which case I would consider it a downgrade, considering you pay $130 for only a little more performance.

Despite the fact that on paper, yes it is an "upgrade"

No, an upgrade is independant of price, it's a fact. if A > B then A is an upgrade over B. A 990X costs a lot more than an i7 970, but it's still an upgrade since it's a better performer right out of the box. Whether the upgrade is worth it should be considered individually.

Yes, I mentioned that. On paper it is an upgrade. Personally I don't consider it to be. Price/performance is the most important thing to me, perhaps not others.
