    Ivy Bridge-E pricing announced... upgrade worthy?

    Well I have a Core i7-3820 that I built myself and love. This being said I have been waiting for the next gen socket 2011 procs to be released a long time now. I love my system' it suits my needs to a "T" and is still very fast by today's standards. Does pcper feel this next gen 2011's is a worthy upgrade? I know the new 4820 is now fully unlocked, so that could be be reason enough.

    Most of all is Asus and other Mobo manufacturers planning on releasing updated 2011 products? One of the most compelling things about a new proc release are the updated corresponding motherboards IMHO, especially with today's high end feature sets. It would be nice if Asus released Maximus VI type for Ivy_Bridge-E.

    I love to build the latest PC technology and have been waiting a long time, but I'm not so sure Ivy Bridge-E is worthy? All input is welcome

    Cheers

    I believe there won't be an X89 chipset for IBE. So you will have to stick to X79 for 4820. Performance wise the improvement is similar to the difference between S1155 Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge. 1st tier motherboard manufacturers might release updated X79 boards with more onboard features such as more SATA6G and USB3 ports, but these extras will all come from third party chips unlike the 8 series chipsets which support them natively.

    Rumors say the next big upgrade for the enthusiast market will be Haswell-E + X99 which will support DDR4 and SATA Express.

    Re: Ivy Bridge-E pricing announced... upgrade worthy?

    My biggest fear is that Ivy Bridge-E is a dud, and the fact that no new Mobo"s are going to be released isn't going to help. Even if X79, a new RoG board with Thunderbolt, WiDi/Miracast or even WiFi ac built in would really help drive IB-E sales. Come on JJ, build one!!! Most IB-E sales will probably come from SB-E owners.

    I reaaly hope X99 and HS-E comes to fruition, no doubt I will be on board. I really love my current build, it blows away my office 3770 PC's performance. If the 4820 turns out to be a monster overclock'er, it could be worth the upgrade, but my 3820 is a screamer as is. Long live the 2011 and its descendants

    Added. On a different note I just bought an Actiontec Screenbeam Miracast kit for my TV, and the usb stick it comes with works great with my pc. Where have you been all my life? Really a great way to enjoy a video library. Thank you Ryan for showing this.
