I love the C206 Asus it sounds very promising, I love the cost of the i3-1200 series. Before we go any further, I am not looking for the ultra fast of fastest but the smoothest worklflow and ability to go HIGH in Autodesk products (Max, Photoshop, Painter and Mudbox are primary software I use).
I settled for a ATI V7900, may be very slightly slower than quadro 4000 but wayyyy more speed/efficiency than I need for Mudbox and Max and can't beat multi screen and real dual GPU as crossfire unlike OS based SLI for Quadro 4000 .
While the chipset C206 and i3-1200 series are promising for my line of work I just wonder if anyone know what the chipset and CPU lineup will be replaced with by Intel in November, if any...
Any rumors on what is replacing what I think is bromolo? This word pops out, not sure why.
The point is that i3-1200 are apparently limited with dual channel and I would love going around 24 gigs of ram instead of 16.
The second point is that I know i3 for desktop is the lowest market CPU base so I am a bit anxious in spending 350 bucks for something that may be the bottleneck of my machine.
