hi all , i'm thinking about starting an intel build .... and i want to get ready for ivy bridge , but i don't have the time to read through the rumor thread .....
is it looking like the intel x79 mother boards will work with ivy bridge ?
The X79 Chipset (Socket 2011) is for the SandyBridge-E chips. It will not work with the regular IvyBridge chips when the are released (Both regular SandyBridge and regular IvyBridge are Socket 1155)
The X79 Chipset will most likely work with the IvyBridge-E (Most Likely Socket 2011) but those are probably at least another year away from release judging on how long after Regular SandyBridge the SandyBridge-E Chips took to come out.
