    Looks like it'll mean no enthusiast (ignoring fanboys) wants to touch LGA1155 with a bargepole, and they'll move wholesale to LGA2011 instead.

    Unless of course Intel makes all of the LGA2011 motherboards and CPUs very expensive, in which case they'll jump ship to AMD.

    If this is true [and as been suggested on the Aria forums MB manufacturers will try to get round it some way] i don't think its anything necessarily bad - provided S2011 is left 'open'.
    Not everyone wants to smash the granny out of a CPU and so these will perform there functions fine to the targeted audience. Add to this SB improvements and turbo-core its a fuss about nothing IMO.
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    Re: Sandy Bridge

    About to say more or less the same thing as terb - these are mainstream processors (each one comes with a weedy GPU for eg.) If you want to overclock then you buy an enthusiast level chip.

    That said, they've started providing unlocked multipliers on lower end chips recently, almost certainly to precisely head off this worry.

    edit: yes, one of the slides says fully and partially unlocked processors available.

    Re: Sandy Bridge

    Hi, its prices to performances i was wondering about, especially if no OCing even 2011, or if unlocked etc, a premium to pay.
    Is it making this generation Intels, or AMD, more likely for peeps next upgrade if above correct(been reading Q6600 thread, not that i have one thou). If so when to buy ? I might upgrade a bit early if it gets, were its not worth waiting. No rush thou(he says), so see how it pans out.

    Nope. Has no affect on my upgrade plans to be honest.

    Re: Sandy Bridge

    To be honest, the distinction between LGA1156 and LGA1336 is negligible at the moment.

    Probably makes sense to separate them out properly, so that there's a consumer non-overclockable option and a professional/enthusiast overclockable premium socket. How they price it will obviously determine how they stack up against AMD, but that's nothing new.
