After Extreme i7 990X comes Sandy Bridge E

Written by Fuad Abazovic

LGA 2011 in Q4 2011

Back in August 2010, we wrote that a new Core i7 Extreme 990X will appear in Q1 2011. This hasn’t changed. You can read all about it here.

This new 3.46GHz clocked Core i7 Extreme 990X should last all the way to the end of Q3 2011 and in Q4 2011, Intel plans to launch a new high end CPU based on Sandy Bridge E CPU. The new CPU's can have up to eight cores, but our sources are clueless whether this is a six- or eight-core extreme processor.

Intel i7 970 also gets replaced by Sandy Bridge E unlocked CPU and Core i7 2600K and Core i7 960 will get its own replacement with Sandy Bridge E. This might indicate two versions of the Sandy Bridge E CPU, a quad- and six- or eight-core, but this is a pure speculation at this time.

All of them are coming in Q4 2011 and they will last at least through the first half of 2012.

Will Core i7 2600K really be replaced by some Sandy Bridge E-part or am I reading it wrong? If so I'd say your sources are incorrect, 1155 is a mainstream/gamer platform, if you want more cores and higher performance it's Intel's next socket to wait for (or Bulldozer).

Unless you're talking about a Core i7 2700K or something?

The new desktop socket will be LGA 1356.

LGA 2011 will be a multi-processor server socket, just like LGA 1567.

1356 motherboards will be able to fit up to two CPUs, depending on the chipset and CPU model (2xQPI needed).

Right now this socket thing it is very annoying, I mean 2011 or 1356? please some body make it clear for me and many others.
I believe that it would be 1356, because 2011 contacts is to much for a desktop platform, I mean what size is going to be the CPU, ENORMOUS I think and the thermal results from such a big area to dissipate the heat. Right now I think is to early to worry about, and yes 1155 2600K is a mainstream chip but a very powerful one because leave any i7 quad extreme in the dust.

Quoting Neo:
1155 2600K is a mainstream chip but a very powerful one because leave any i7 quad extreme in the dust.

And the best chip to pair with a quad configuration of GTX580. because in game the i7 2600K is the best gaming chip in the world.

Core i7 995x to follow 990x.Quoting Harry Lloyd:

LGA 2011 will be a multi-processor server socket, just like LGA 1567.

1356 motherboards will be able to fit up to two CPUs, depending on the chipset and CPU model (2xQPI needed).


Intel have dropped 1356, and there has been no actual word on their development since april 2010.

Is changing sockets so often really MUST?

Will any of the Sandy Bridge E's have QuickSync?

Its just going to be weird when the lower-end cheap CPUs are so much faster at encoding than the super high-end expensive chips!

32nm will be so old by this point and 22nm will have been out for over 6 months so do we think that maybe the chip update in the 2H 2012 might bring 22nm to the high-end party? Much like Intel did with 6-core chips at 32nm.
