1155 vs 1156

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
I'm a little confused as to what 1155 is.. is that the new Sandy Bridge chipset? I think I'm correct in saying chipset is integrated into the motherboard (do excuse the lack of knowledge, I'm rather tired), not physically in the CPU.

For future upgradability+value for money+performance, which is best? 1156 seems good because you can get an i7 on it as well..
Thanks.

chipset is always on the mobo not on cpu...
memory controller and intel gpu r on the cpu....
and as of now u can also get an i7 for 1155....i7 2600k
overall seeing ur requirements i would say get the 1155 socket mobo paired with an i5 2500k(quad core).....
currently its the best price to performance combo available......

seriously i5 2500k with a good p67 motherboard and you can get 4GHz with no sweat, 4.5 with no issue and 5ghz with some patience. i can only suggest a TP67XE from biostar, thats the only one i have used and it is very good.but the ASUS p8p67pro is a good one also. The ASrock is also pretty good.

Honestly, there's no reason to get 1156 at this point unless money is an issue. The 1155 is not only faster and more efficient, but Sandy Brdige/1155 motherboards will be able to take Ivy Bridge (22nm die shrink) come 2011.

But if I'm going to get a GTX 580, how will sandy bridge be utilized/maximized?
Should I be better off with a 1156 and a high end vcard?
I can't see any decent upgrade paths with these intel sockets right now. >_<

Be utilized? I'm not sure I follow. Are you unsure whether Sandy Bridge can fully make use of the 580's power or vice versa? Either way, they will take care of each other without any bottleneck.

And again, current 1155 Sandy Bridge motherboards will be able to make use of next-gen Ivy Bridge processors once released. It's been a while since you could buy a new generation of Intel processor and slap it in a previous gen board.

1155 is newer , more effenct and the 2600k is a 4 core 8 thread like my i7(x58 chip) and runs 200 watts lower then my setup @ same speed, so ya if you upgread get snadybrige aka 1155. the 580 will love you for it .
