If you're going to do some hardcore benchmarking (competitively) or extremely high-end workstation/CAD/etc work, 1366 is the best choice with a hex core. Otherwise, it's 1155 all the way
Umm.. No. Ivy Bridge is gonna be x58 rig owners upgrade path.

Ummm. Z68 will be "upgrade path" for X58 owners, but you won't be able to drop Z68 into X58.

Ivy Bridge will feature 1155 chips -- it's a die shrink of 1155.

There is an upgrade path available to drop in an Ivy Bridge CPU in a 1155 socket. It will lack some of the features of 2011, but that's expected.

1155 is the socket, how is that getting a die shrink?

Oh yeah. Sorry i Misundestood. I was thinking about the x68 LGA 2011 which will replace x58 and is also Sandy Bridge. Ivy is still 1155.

X58 owners will never go 1155, atleast for me coz it's just gonna be a little performce boost for us.
