Asus shows LGA2011 concept board

One LGA1366 and one LGA2011 socket allows a perfect upgrade path, according to Asus

ya its interesting how they are diving the ram between the CPU, in reason for that? I havent been following the 2011 as much as I have been following bulldozer.

That sure looks.. interesting.

What's this X68 chipset you're on about? I thought Z68 was for 1155 and X79 was for 2011?

edit: hmm so x68 is indeed for 2011.
So many chipsets, crisscrossed references between ranges. Thank you intel, as if your confusing CPU name scheme wasn't enough already.

edit2: actually I've just read X68 might get skipped alltogether in favour of Z79?

I got confused as well...

Everywhere else i've seen mentions the X79 Chipset for LGA2011...

Can someone explain ?

I can't see the point of the board apart from comparing lga1366 and lga2011.
Now if they were to build a dual lga2011 board, that could be interesting.
How does it compare sizewise to the SR-2 board?

Have you seen the size of the CPU sockets? If that's what they'll look like does this mean we can expect MASSIVE cpu's?

No idea why anyone would want this. It probably costs more than a 1366 board and a 2011 board, and will require you to have a EATX case.

This looks to be the latest in a long line of miserable failures that were designed to "make upgrading easy" - i.e. the DDR2 and DDR3 boards, the AGP and PCIe boards, and the 775 + 939 dual socket board. They 'kinda' worked, but couldn't do either thing as well as the correct mobo, plus they cost as much as both.

For someone who has a 1366 rig already, and plans to upgrade to 2011, this is a terrible idea. It would be cheaper for them to just wait for 2011 to come out and buy a 2011 motherboard, and continue using their 1366 motherboard.

Interesting concept, but it'd surely need v complex drivers ...bugs?

*waits for* But can it run Crysis?

Its X79 for LGA 2011 CPU's also there is heaps of photos of the new 2011 boards already.

i don't think we will ever see this on the market because of the layout of the board, because look at where the ram slots for the 2011 cpu, 4 of them are in line with where the PCI slots are, so when ivy bridge does come out you won't be able to play on it, and if you have a motherboard like this you probably have more than 1 or 2 graphics cards

Can they make a board that allows both 1366 and 2011 CPUs in the same socket? Now that would be a good selling point! (even if it is an AMD invention)

1) It's X79

@ Slothy - Same socket? No.

@ Chicken - No. New coolers.

@ cbd - Dual 2011 will come in time, although exclusively workstation.

The two CPUs talk to each other via QPI, and the 2011 CPU then provides the PCI-E or talks to the X79 to provide the SATA etc

Would youi be able to use both at the same time or is this designed to let you use 1366 now, then swap to 2011 later on?
If it's the later then it's a bit pointless, as I'm sure this board will comand a huge price premium at the moment.

No you have to use the LGA2011 chip as the 1366 connects to it. It basically means you can throw out your X58 board and still use the 1366 Core i7
