You would have to have specific needs for 8 cores for this to be worthwhile. 1.6? You figure even with a 50% overclock your only looking at 2.4.

Cool, but where the hell do you get an LGA 1356 motherboard? Also, 1.8GHz? Ha.

Save your money, wait a few months for LGA 2011.

1356 is meant to be a single and dual socket Xeon workstation with triple channel memory, essentially the non-enthusiast replacement for 1366 while s2011 is the enthusiast replacement. There aren't any mobos for it yet.

I thought they scrapped 1356 in favor of 2011 for all enthusiast chips.

Maybe they will still release 1356 server boards?

Yes, according to the Intel IDF 2011 slides, there WILL be a Socket B2 (presumably LGA 1356) for servers alongside LGA 2011.

Dated 2011, not sure what month, but the roadmaps I saw before were also 2011 and did NOT have SNB-EX or SNB-EN, so I'd guess this PDF fell out of IDF 2011 this year.

I'm kind of glad to see Intel really focusing on making their server lines differentiated from the desktop lines -- it always confused me when Xeons offered no real advantage over their Pentium/Core 2/Core i7 counterparts.

All right, well, I am on Intel's site now and found the latest public roadmap: http://download.intel.com/products/roadmap/roadmap.pdf

It seems to me that this Socket B2 chip is not mentioned...weird. What's going on at Intel, I wonder...?

The big differential for Core i7 versus Xeon was pretty major. Extra CPU communications lanes and a boatload extra of cache were Nehalem generation's Xeon's big advantages over the desktop version. Nehalem likes cache, a lot. All the way up to Gulftown, that architecture soaks up as much cache as you can throw at it, and Xeon really made good use of that in multi-socket setups.
