Mr. Handley insisted that Gigabyte would “be ready in every way” next year
Probably not true, but I like the enthusiasm. It does seem to me that the innovation on the CPU/GPU front far outdoes that of motherboards, so even a hollow promise of progress is nice.

So when is SB coming? Not really answered. Will it be OC limited. Rumors at best. Board specifics? Not really. Much info on LGA 2011...none besides general arrival. Come on! I want info gigabyte! Spill it! Then THG can pick it up :p

"Regarding any future plans however concerning P67 and LGA 2011, details were comparatively sparse—which is to be expected for any company that has to follow Intel’s PR line."

The paucity of information is not Gigabyte's fault.

if you want socket longevity and compatibility go with AMD. If you want the latest and greatest performence out of a socket then go with Intel, but expect to replace your socket type a lot sooner then you would with AMD.

[citation][nom]ChrissyT[/nom]What rocks are you people living under. Yes there are two new sockets next year. 1155 and 2011.[/citation]
Yes, 1155 for sandy bridge "(m)ainstream" that comes out 4Q10 and 2011 for sandy bridge "(E)nthusiast" that comes out 3Q11.
The only problem I have, is that AMD should have changed its socket type for Bulldozer, but then again the i7 980 was on 1336. Bulldozer 940 to i7 1336 and now i9 2011, AMD needs to up its pins to get more bandwidth. The athlons had 462 pins while the pentium 4s had 478 pins and thats why the amd had the upper hand. Around the same number of pins but better performance. AMD step ur game up. All I own is AMD CPUs and GPUs now, but come on AMD 942 or 943 pins for bulldozer isn't enough!!!!!

^ this is what I was talking about even though I do like the blue..:)

Intel keeps changing the socket with their new chips. I'm OK with that. But why do they have to change the dang HSF bolt pattern when they change sockets. Call me frugal, but I'd like to carry over as many parts as possible and it seems like a no-brainer.

[citation][nom]dg86[/nom]Did anyone else prefer the blue board colour?[/citation]
I will miss the blue board color I've been using for years...but black mobo = awesome.

I'm looking forward to a matte black board. The color schemes of the latest 4 generations have been questionable at best, and I can't really say I like the way my ex58-ud5 looks.

I'm still using the Pentium 4 3.6 GHz system I built in 2003. I'm guessing the LGA-2011 systems will upgrade USB 2 to USB 3, PCIe-2 to PCIe-3 and obviously will support SATA 6 Gb/s as opposed to the old SATA 3 Gb/s, and DDR3-2666 4 channel memory as opposed to 3 channel memory. I plan to upgrade to LGA-2011 in Q4 2011. I've been waiting 7 years to upgrade - and this will be (finally) the time to do it.

Also, Intel "Taylorsville" 6Gb/s Solid State Drives will be comming in Q1 2011. They will match-up nicely with LGA-2011 systems. I'm hoping it will support 4-drive-RAID-5 and RAID-0.

[citation][nom]Anonymous[/nom]I agree on the the bolt pattern. Why only 4 ram slots?[/citation]

Only 4 ram slots on the LGA 1155 I would imagine because they are still only dual channel memory. I believe I read the LGA 2011 is going to be quad channel which means we should see 8 memory slots.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

i believe (from the x78 motherboard photos from MSI released) that they will only have 4 DIMM's. in the pictures there is 2 DIMM's each side of the cpu... and the LGA2011 CPU is going to be big... it requires two clamps to hold it in place, but it has been reporteSubmit my comment d that the 1366 coolers will fit.
