Future of LGA 1155

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
At the moment I'm considering switching to Intel to get myself an Intel Core i7 2600K Sandy Bridge CPU along with an Asus P8P67 Deluxe motherboard. Extra to my going to Sandy Bridge, I would gain SATA 6Gb/s support (my HDD is SATA 6Gb/s but currently on SATA 3Gb/s due to my motherboard) and USB 3.0 support (my external HDD is USB 3.0 compatible). The move will cost me £463 and that excludes any RAM I may need to buy (I suspect my RAM is AMD-only but I'm unsure as of yet). Of course, I can sell on my current CPU and my RAM (if needed).

My question is regarding the LGA 1155 socket. I know about the upcoming LGA 1356 socket but don't know when that's out. Is the LGA 1155 socket going to see some six and maybe even eight core CPUs in the future or is that all reserved for the LGA 1356 socket?
If so, upgrading to Sandy Bridge now wouldn't be very ideal.

Any pointers? smile.gif

EDIT: Noted that LGA 2011 is for servers so my question is targeted toward Ivy Bridge working on LGA 1155 or just being LGA 1356 compatible.

If you're looking to upgrade, there's always a question of "if and when" the next big thing is released. Why not keep your X6? You've got just as much power there.

Since socket 2011 will be high end platform - 2011 boards and cpu's most likely will be much more expensive than 1155, but no one can say how much faster they will be, so any words about LGA 2011 for now is pretty much speculation. The way i see it - incredible thing about 1155 is not even performance which is not that much higher than 1366 but its efficiency. And of course i think switching from AM3 to 1155 (2600K) would boost your pc's performance big time lowering power consumption significantly at the same time.

Actually, 2011 isn't confirmed as of yet for either desktop or server. And there was some leaked pics of an x68 board on the 2011 socket, which probably means that 2011 will be for desktop use.

Honestly, that's what i'm waiting for. 1155 isn't that big of a jump up from what I currently have, i'll wait for 8-12 core processors to upgrade.

Thanks for the replies guys. I feel a bit uneasy about upgrading now (I bought my current CPU in September 2010, LOL) so I thought I'd ask on its upgradability in the future.

I was initially waiting for AMD's Bulldozer. Specifically, their 8 core CPUs. However, I've somewhat lost faith in their ability to keep up with Intel, regardless of new architectures (I may be totally wrong, though). I would love an 8 core CPU but I think Intel will price them out of the arse once they're out. I would never pay more than £350 or so for a CPU..
