Default Re: went from 4.2 Ghz i7-860 to 2500k @ 4.8 Ghz

I'm kind of glad LGA-2011 will be EE chips at first, since it means I can get a couple years out of this LGA-1356 rig I just got (since there's no way I am dropping $1k on a CPU).

Maybe they will have an LGA-1155 refresh by then.

I'm rather surprised about that LGA-2011 news... I always thought it was slated for Q4 2011

They already have another major launch coming before socket 2011's X68 chipset, and it's basicly just another socket 1155 chipset, but more performance oriented then P67, Z68. Not sure why it's needed beyond something to do with allowing you to use the video decode engine on the IGP simultaneously with their discreet GPU still providing main video output. If that's it's only trick, or that it adds some PCIe lanes for multi-GPU people, it may be hard pressed to prove itself worthy of any extra cost above P67.

Unless games/apps start utilizing the IGP. The only problem is that Sandy Bridge IGP's don't support OpenCL. But Ivy Bridge IGP's will.

While the IGP doesn't support OpenCL, the CPU itself does.
