Are you/have you/do you plan to upgraded to Sandy Bridge/Ivy Bridge?

See you later 1156! Give me that that new Intel goodness.

Never gonna give you up: 1366 and 1156

Postposted on Mon Jan 10, 2011 10:19 am

I currently have a i5 750 overclocked to 4.0ghz and have just started to do some bluray ripping and encoding. I figured that with Sandy bridge out, there would be a flood of i5 and i7 chips being dumped off in the used department and considered it a good time to look for an upgrade to the i7 875k and gain the additional benefit of Hyper Threading. The only problem is that I haven't really seen the flood that I thought I would (granted it is only 1 day after the release). I thought I would take a poll here and see who is upgrading and what people are upgrading from.

I think it will be quite interesting to see what the prices for used i5/i7 systems go for. For a little over $300, you can overhaul your system to Sandy Bridge (new CPU and mobo). Knowing that, I would find it hard to pay anything over $150 for an upgrade to my i5 750.

I'm debating on what to do. It's not so much that I need/want the processor upgrade, but more of a function of the fact that I'm planning on upgrading to an SSD once the Micron/SF-2000/Intel G3/Corsair P3's are all out and we have relative comparisons. Since my current board doesn't support SATA 6Gb, it's almost enough to convince me. I'll be doing a GPU upgrade at the same time.

The question will be what I do with my old components at that point. Might put together that home NAS that I've been meaning to do.
Intel i7 860, Asus P7P55D Pro, 4x2GB Corsair XMS3 1600 (CMX4GX3M2A1600C9), EVGA GTX 560 Ti Superclocked
Seagate 7200.7 160GB, WD Caviar Black 640GB, WD Caviar Green 1TB, WD Caviar Green 2TB
Dell 2408WFP and Dell 2407WFP-HC for dual-24" goodness

I'm regretting cheaping out on the power supply last time I upgraded - I'd be worried about sticking a 95W TDP processor in there with a (quality) 380W power supply that's already feeding a Radeon 4850.

HTPC if your not going with the home NAS route.

I am in pretty much the same debate with you guys. I got an X6 so I might get the bulldozer MB and leave the X6 in it depending and then upgrade to bulldozer once thats out. On the other hand the 2011LGA looks very very promising. The new wave of SSD's look ridiculous though. They are going to need a new spec very soon (over the 6Gb/s) on the those controllers because Vertex 3 is already showing over 500MB/s in beta testing. (SATA 3 caps at 750) http://www.anandtech.com/show/4100/ocz-vertex-pro-3-demo-worlds-first-sandforce-sf2000 With speeds seemingly doubling one more generation (2012???) they should be close to 1GB/s, which would be incredible.

Am I wrong it observing that 1366 hasn't seen a major refresh since the initial launch, only that 1,000 dollar six core? The whole line is still kinda chillin 2 years later?

Could you Edit the option that says "My i5/i7 runs fine" to something more inclusive? I have a Phenom II that runs fine. I've got absolutely no reason to upgrade it. I'm sure there are people with Core 2 quads that feel the same.

I'm extremely impressed with Sandy Bridge and I'd love to have one, but there's nothing I do that would make the upgrade worth it or even noticeable. I just plain wouldn't notice it! I can't rightly spend $500 and not be able to notice the difference. Heck, my 955 BE is running at stock. A 5770 runs games just fine for me at 1600x1200 so I don't need to upgrade that either. What I do need to upgrade is my storage.

The only thing promising is the price will be high. :o

That is because that "promising" 2011 platform is coming and 1366 is as done as 1156. For Intel usually it means new CPU architecture == new motherboard. Don't like it? Jump to AMD but you may still "get burned" (some people think like that, I don't), like this AM3+ business.

For me, I bought the 875K last year knowing full well that I am not going to upgrade the base platform until I pass it on or retire the box. The only upgrades that I planned (and may have done already) are SSD and video card. Sandy Bridge info was released almost a year in advance so for people who care bitching that the platform is changing really have no excuse.

1366 is set to continue to exist for the rest of 2011.

I'm more eager for the GTX595 to release than I am about 2011.

I don't have a problem spending another $75-$125 with a CPU to get a new motherboard. Its all part of the ugprade. In fact, I don't remember the last time I did a simple straight CPU upgrade. Kind of a package deal at this point.

I'm still running on Socket 939 so no worries about having to get a new motherboard, this ones old anyway, plus a 2.2GHz K8 to my planned Sandy Bridge rebuild will be a huge upgrade. I don't normally wait this long (will be 5 years this year) but other things have meant a new build has been on the back burner. I'm very excited about Sandy Bridge!

Can't justify upgrading from the 875K to a 2600K; the performance delta just isn't that great.

My 1.8ghz C2D (e4300 i believe, one of the first low end C2D's) is still doing the job for me, even an i5-750 would be a significant upgrade. But I just don't see the point, all I use it for is browsing the net and Starcraft 2. And it does a good enough job of that for me.

I'm upgrading from a Q6600 to an i5 2550k, Asrock Pro 3 & 2x2 gb Corsair 1333 ram for just £300. Recycling all my other components.

Think this upgrade is a bargain and looking forward to setting it up. Only downside is reinstalling all my programmes after I've wiped my OS'es.

Just notice my sig is out of date so I'll sort it later

not upgrading till I feel constrained, and I don't yet. So no plans.

What kind of performance do you expect for LGA 2011? I mean it's gonna be a bigger chip that doesn't include integrated graphics. It will have more cores, but do you think we will just see better performance in highly threaded applications or do you think there will be better single-core performance as well?
