Are these the standard or K versions?
I actually had no idea Core i7 was going to LGA1155. Shows how much skim reading I do, hehe.
The LGA1156 i7's mind, not the LGA1366's...
+ 1 huh i dont get what he means either.
I think he meands the i7 8 series ones. Not the 9's....
I think what he means is that the Core i7 1155 CPU is the same branding exercise as the Core i7 1156 CPU.
Intel really need a new brand name thinker-upper.
Take a second to understand the naming (which we've had for a couple years now) and it's pretty easy. i7 isn't related to a socket, it's related to hyperthreading. The "LGA1156 i7s" would be items like the i7 860 whereas "LGA1366 i7s" would be items like the i7 950.
Remeniz was just saying that it's only the lower end of the i7 series on 1155, just like the low end of the i7 series was on 1156.
I was just pointing out that there's two different i7 sockets, the 1366's and the 1156's and the Sandy's replace the latter... I'm sure Intel did this to confuse everyone.
I think Intel are bringing out another LGA1366 i7 next year....
Separate names with a comma.
