    Let's hope they don't go out with a bang!

    I've no plans on upgrading from X58 any time soon, there's no need for me to. It's served me well so far and should do for a good while yet. (Famous last words.)
    My only concern is should I hide my true identity? A costume maybe?

    Seriously with each new information about X79 platform upgrading to it is less and less interesting. They can EOL X58 all they want. There is plenty of life left in X58. I see absolutely no reason to go X79 for maybe 15% more performance in real life applications.

    Moving from P4 or C2D to X58 was like switching from Fiat Panda to McLaren Mercedes SLR. Switching from X58 to X79 increasingly look like moving from Fiat Panda hatchback 1.3D to 1.4 petrol Van (you get few SATA ports extra and tiny bit more performance). Frankly if somebody is interested in storage buy new RAID card. That way you will get proper RAID support - not some software garbage, on-board cache, battery/ZNP protection and few other little things.

    i wonder how long it will be until the average geeeky user will need to upgrade their CPU ?

    if you're running core i5/i7 in any flavour you've got an absolute beast that'll keep on ticking like an atomic clock, and with games now using more and more of the GPU, and developers not really pushing PCs anyway because of console obligations, i can see a current gen PC only needing a graphics card upgrade every now and then for about 4-6 years

    I have a QX6800 on an X38 (maybe X48, no idea) that I've run for probably 4 years now. The only reason I don't use it now is that my laptop is far more convenient to use.

    If was still a big gamer I'd probably just drop a new graphics card my existing box. But seeing as the next Half-Life is probably 10 years away I shall not bother right now.

    Re: News - Intel's X58 set to get EOL status

    I am happy quite pleased by this.....was expecting EOL for X58 to happen a lot sooner.....and then to open the thread and see they will be shipping them for another 12 months was awesome.

    Still do not know what I would do if my CPU or motherboard died tonight.......like many, I see no reason at all to upgrade/sidegrade at the moment and now I know replacement mobos will still be kicking around 18-24 months from now the incentive to look at alternatives seems moot.
