No one is saying that. You are taking it out of context.

They are simply saying that with the line being discontinued, there is no scope for upgrade in the future compared to what is already available, so there for there is no point in buying it.

It's common sense to go with the new architecture if it is a new build unless you don't mind completely re-building a new system when that one isn't enough due to the fact that incremental upgrades are out of the window and a new socket would be necessary.

It's a dead end because it is discontinued. There for there is no scope for upgrades in the future unless you invest in a completely new socket.

No one is saying that 1366 offers sub-par performance.

You guys seriously need to brush up on reading comprehension skills.

Ok again. If its a dead end then there things that it wont be able to do very soon. Our questionaire being a PC Gamer will not have any problems running any games on a cheaper 1366 system for at least a year and a half maybe two with clever GPU replacements or future SLI. Unless Your benching and trying to win contests what cant you do with a 1366? I really want to know...

Sandy Bridge will be dead faster than 1366 lasted when ivy comes out. If your gonna wait u should really wait. Or you can save some money and go with somthin cheaper and still not take full advantage of the system for possibly 2 - 2 1/2 years.

Here let me list a few things.

1) Buy a new stepping cpu.
2) Buy an improved clock for clock chip.
3) Buy a new revision motherboard.
4) Get new updates for your equipment.
5) Have a strong resale value.
6) To the general public 1366 is more expensive.

I still have a Pentium II sitting behind me, is it on a dead socket?

You say you're a gamer, but you bought a i7... Either you're a bencher, or you made a very bad call on your purchase. To cap that off you went with a over-priced cpu, on the more expensive mobo class, and are running a single card.

I'd call that epic fail.

A real gamer would look at actual game benchmarks and see that in almost all of them HT hurts your scores.



And for the 10,000th time, IB is a die shrink of SB. All you'll get waiting is quad channel memory, a die shrink, and extra cores. The core vs core performance will be very similar, all you'll have done is over-paid for your setup once again. Also IB will make its way to 1155 most likely, the same way 32nm made its way to 1156 and 1366.

Word on the street is that Ivy Bridge will work with socket 1155. Sandy Bridge /= 1155 only. Hopefully Ivy will work with the P67 chipset.

This thread is what you are looking for. Tons of reviews, pricing, benches, etc. The OP really deserves some credit for it. It is like Sandybridge-a-palooza.

You say you're a gamer, but you bought a i7... Either you're a bencher, or you made a very bad call on your purchase. To cap that off you went with a over-priced cpu, on the more expensive mobo class, and are running a single card.

I'd call that epic fail.

Also IB will make its way to 1155 most likely, the same way 32nm made its way to 1156 and 1366.
Got the chip from a buddy that owns a store for 150. Y not get it. Im pretty sure i wont have a prob running any game at full settings. Fail? I think not. I can do anything i need to w this pc. I dont just game.
