Yeah, I really don't like what they've done with Sandy Bridge. I was all excited about putting this new rig together on the 1155 platform until I found out that Ivy Bridge, although it's backwards compatible, won't have six cores.

Intel's made things far too complex with all these new platforms. I can't remember a time when they had four platforms out all at once (LGA1336, 1155, 1156, 2011). It's been maddening to try and figure out just what they've done since I last built a PC.

I hate AMD dropped the ball with Bulldozer. I was looking forward to having an 8-core CPU in my new rig at an affordable price. I usually try to implement some sort of breakthrough tech in each one of my builds. BD's definitely not it.
