I did want to know, does this mean the i7 930 is out dated or is it still a good CPU? i guess my real question to follow that up would be what does the new chip have?

It is still grreat. Hey, ever heard of an i7 920?!?!

I personally would wait untill both Sandy and BD are out and 'benches have been pressed.'

1155-A replacment of 1156. For low-profile CPU's like the i7-2600 series
1366-No plans as as for all that I know.
2011-Extened LGA for the higher profile chips.

I think 1155 uses x56 chipset, or what I heard.


At the other end, AMD is releasing a new socket called AM3+,( or AM3r2)

1155 will use p67 and h67 chipsets. p67 will be more expensive and better for overclocking, h67 will be able to use integrated graphics. So, if you are a gamer or do some graphics work, get the p67. i5 760 isn't bad either, I was going to get that one, but decided to get the i5 2500k when it comes out.
