We all know that the hardware industry leaks like a broken pipe. Hence, it comes to no surprise that the pricing of LGA1155 kit has surfaced...

Right now (sorry !) I am a little dissapointed. Let me explain !

As usual these new chips we have been dying to see have a boring name. Pretty much the same ones we have now (I3 I5 I7). It would have been amazing if they had come up with a cool new name like.

Secondly the pricetags don't make them really desirable and it seems that there aren't any 'killer apps' in there. No extremes, no 980X hex core nothing.

Fair play Intel need time to come up with them but man it would have been a.mazing to see a 5ghz chip

I do very much look forward to seeing them put through their paces though

Hi, I'm just about to order a whole new build and was completely satisfied with everything, until I very recently came across this Sandy Bridge. I originally decided to have an Intel

Core I7 950 and an Asus X58 Sabertooth to match (Mainly due to how highly you rated both of them) but now I have found out about this Sandy Bridge so should I wait a little longer and get the Intel Core I7 2600k and perhaps the Gigabyte P67A-UD4 to match? I see that price wise my original and the Sandy Bridge are roughly the same, So I would love to know the differences between the two and if it is worth going Sandy Bridge or not. Thanks.

X58 still has more power if want a gaming machine its x58 still if want a reasonably priced semi gaming machine sandy bridge its a replacement for 1156 socket not a 1366 replacement.

Ok Thanks alot. So in gaming terms the X58 with the I7 950 would be quicker than the top Sandy Bridge without question ? Even though the Sandy Bridge apparently overclocks to 5GHz on air? Whereas I don't think I'd be pushing my 950 over 4GHz

Not sure but I think I read that its a replacement for the 1156 socket i3, i5 and i7...Hmmm...sounds like their still gonna call them i3-7 but differentiation is going to be the socket 1155...maybe Im just reading into it.

"We" could code name it the middle of the road CPU or even better "the Neapolitan" CPU if your just after another name Lol Time will tell...

BTW...before anyone takes this wrong way "I'm not being an ARSE". Just my sense of humor. Lol I may have to put this disclaimer on all my replies

So do you think an I7-950 with X58 motherboard will still be faster than the 2nd generation I7-2600k with a P67 motherboard coming out in January as its only an 1156 socket?

thanks a lot :-)

Quick question... Why does it say that the UD4 and UD5 only support Dual Channel DDR3 1333/1066/800, the UD7 supports Dual Channel DDR3 2200/1600/1333/1066/800 and the bottom of the range supports Dual Channel DDR3 2200/2133/1600/1333/1066/800
