LGA 2011 will have integrated SATA III

Just read about the new Intel LGA 2011 socket that is going to replace the current LGA 1366 sockets. Motherboards will be designated aS Z69 boards. The brand bew cpu's and motherboards will be released during the last quarter of the year.

Some of the new features are:

Quad channel memory support

"Sata III controllers integrated into the X79 chipset" :D

USB 3.0 support

Intel Gigabit ethernet support

There was no mention of PCI-e 3.0 support. :(

Hmmmm new cpu + new motherboard + new memory = BIG BUCKS :cry:

    In the motherboard section, I had posted a while back that the LGA 2011 boards will have at least on PCIe 3.0 slot on higher end boards. It is my understanding it have at least one slot on the board.
  2. Computex Taipei 2011 starts today. Perhaps someone attending the show will publish additional information.
  3. FFS I hate all of Intel's socket changes this is getting ridiculous.

    Seriously considering picking up AMD from now on.
  4. myankleoboy1 - PCI-e 3.0 based solid state drives are in the works. Should be available first quarter 2012 same as the new motherboards. No word yet on video cards.
  5. Don't really see the point in a PCI-e 3.0 SSD.

    Even in RAID 0 the fastest SSDs don't saturate PCI-e 2.0.

    Total gimmick!
  6. Rusting In Peace - You are correct if you just look at the current crop of PCI-e based ssd's designed for consumers. You should see what's coming from the business enterprise side of the market - near memory speed data storage. As usual, the problem for consumers, enthusiasts, and gamers is price. The performance of consumer grade ssd's was restricted to keep prices down. The same thing will probably happen with PCIe 3.0 based ssd's.

    Base Clock Speed: PCIe 3.0 = 8.0GHz, PCIe 2.0= 5.0GHz, PCIe 1.1= 2.5GHz

    Data Rate (per lane & per direction): PCIe 3.0 = 1000MB/s, PCIe 2.0= 500MB/s, PCIe 1.1= 250MB/s

    Total Bandwidth (x16 link): PCIe 3.0 = 32GB/s, PCIe 2.0= 16GB/s, PCIe 1.1= 8GB/s

    Data Transfer Rate: PCIe 3.0 = 8.0GT/s, PCIe 2.0= 5.0GT/s, PCIe 1.1= 2.5GT/s
