Ye but I really sucks when you know in about 6 months and most likely less, you will get phased out A year+ fine. A couple of months, BIG bummer.

Fair point yeah. I suppose I'm lucky to have got a couple of year or more out of the 1366. When's the 2011 supposed to appear.

The boards are pretty much set! Pics of a MSI boards has been leaked. 2011 pinout is crazy looking! Altough all this and Intel has not yet said a thing about X68. We are pretty much waiting on that I imagine. 3-4 months I am giving.

I just read your first post again. I think you know what your gonna do
I'll bet, that in three months time, there'll be rumours of something mindblowing coming next year.

This is why I am hoping for another "LGA 775 repeat"

Things seem to be speeding up before our very eyes. Browsers get updated nightly, new graphics technology comes along every couple of months, we're up to our knees in chips and linux is taking over the mobile device market.
There will soon be four different LGA sockets on the market at the same time. There may never be another LGA 775 socket in terms of longevity. Is there a roadmap for the 2011 socket?

I shall be interested to see what happens to Nvidia. Surely the integration of a GPU on the CPU will do away with the need for low end and even middle range discrete graphics cards.
Nvidia only have their cards and, perhaps, the Tegra chip.
The market for top end gaming cards is not sufficient to sustain them and/or keep up with the competition, which has other strings to it's bow.

From what I have been reading, the first cpu for the LGA2011 will be an Extreme version costing around $1000-$1300.

What's bugging me right now is the release of Intels new LGA1155 and it's future LGA2011 with and X68 chipset.

LGA1366 is defnitly the way to go if you are an enthusiast. TRI-SLI (X58 chipset x16, x16, x4 PCIe 2.0), supurb overclocking features and alot of harcore motherboards! Alot of resources on the web. Not to mention Intel and nVidia finally agreed upon having SLI capabilities on Intels chipset now giving you the choice between SLI and CF! Big step in gaming!

On the other hand, LGA 1155 supports the new iCore7 Sandy Bridge 2600K cpu. They are amazing to overclock (5Ghz easy!) and perform extremely well due to it's new microarchitecture! Most motherboards are reasonable but the P67 Chipset does not support full 2x16 PCIe 2.0. Not ideal for SLI or CF but one 570GTX or more would definitely be more then enough to run todays games and very high settings. Also to note ,some boards have a faulty Southbridge regarding SATA IIRC! Don't forget native USB 3.0 and SATA 6.0Gb/sec capabilities!

Now for the overkill! There are no dates yet, but most people presume LGA 2011 is going to be a desktop board sporting the new X68 chipset of which details have not yet been released. Who knows, this board might supply full 3x16 PCEi 3.0! Blazing fast, super effeicent CPUS! Most likely going to be Intels Ivy Bridge made with Intels 22nm process combined with Quad-Channel DDR3 RAM!

So do I,

Optn 1: Go for the LGA 1366, upgrade in the future with pure RAW power to get up to date (SLI 580GTX and fastest RAM in the future to keep my game up).

Optn 2: Go for the LGA 1155 with the crazy 2600K CPU and a nice 580GTX and coast smootly for the next couple of years not being able to upgrade as much down the line since it uses a P67 chipset? A pretty new but already old LGA 1155 design that IMO want be going for very long if they have there eyes set on LGA 2011 already. The mainstream chipset is what bugs me the most! ;(

Optn 3: Wait and pray for LGA 2011, X68 chipset, 22nm CPUs and crazy retarded GFX with Quad-Channel DDR3 that will future proof me for years to come!

What do guys??
I'd go for LGA 1155.

Why?
  1. You won't have to wait for LGA 2011, might take a while, Q4 2011, maybe even 2012.
  2. CPU's are crazy fast, per clock performance up to around ~5% vs 1st generation Core i5/i7 CPUs.
  3. Ivy Bridge CPUs will be LGA 1155 compatible.
  4. OC potential through the roof.

LGA 775 is like the Windows XP of sockets lasting a long time. It is said though that LGA 1155 is supposed to last a few years as well. LGA 2011 is supposed to be the high-end socket that will be side by side with LGA 1155 much like LGA 1156/1366 shared space for a bit.

And in terms of the GPU, that'll be interesting to see because as much noise as is made about high-end cards, their bread and butter are the low to midrange market. Then again, software may start pushing the boundaries requiring more and more powerful cards. Definitely interesting to watch.

I'd wager that Q1 2012 is more likely for all the board manufacturers to have their offerings available. Even then prices are going to at a premium for a while after that.

That they are.

I suspect that 2011 chips will be just as good in that area.

The only real limitation is the lack of hex/octo core chips and the x8/x8 limitation of the P67 chipset and even then the performance hit isn't really that bad.

Personally I can afford to wait until the 2011 socket is released because I'm already on 1366 - but if I were to go from 775 today, it would be to 1155 and not 1366.

Buy a 'cheaper' 1155 board, a 2500k or 2600k and decent GPU and you can afford to coast along quite happily until the inevitable board/chip revisions of 2011 come along. By that time, the next gen of GPU's will hopefully be around the corner and then you can go hog wild with a kick ass overkill rig

Either way you go, both sockets, 1155 or 1366, are still going to deliver good performance for quite a while yet.
