i5 what the heck


Recommended Posts

I'm just getting started on my new build and now theres a new cpu coming out.

Is it worth waiting for ? If not I will be ordering new m/b cpu and mem. tomorrow.

Going with i7 at the moment.

Thanks all ;)

Well, the lynnfield CPUs are not meant to be better than the Bloomfields... Since it is the same architecture but with one less memory channel, I would expect them to be a tiny bit slower clock for clock. The question is at what price will a lynnfield system set you at? Hopefully you might be able to save some money while having the same, or very close to the same performance.

correct me if i am wrong, but arent the newer i7s and upcoming i5s going to be in a new pin layout, i think its like the LGA1566 or something.

 

i5 -> Lga1566

i7 --> lga1366? why would they make Half of the i7's one socket and half another socket. Doesn't make sake
