That's progress,........and we'll need new motherboards for the replacements?
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
Sad my current chip is being scrapped lol. *Kiss them goodbye*
The i7-875k is a good chip. Too bad to see it go, but Sandy(and soon Ivy with it's updated graphics) already blew it out of the water.
LGA2011 boards should be good with Ivy.
dejasoul100:LGA2011 boards should be good with Ivy.
I have to agree, once the LGA 2011 versions of Ivy Bridge gets released, people will be in overclocking heaven.
And yes realneil, that is progress.
"The future starts with you; now start posting more!"
Woah... Intel was still producing those old chips? Who was buying them?
TaylorKarras:And yes realneil, that is progress.
I don't mind progress, I embrace it normally. But being forced into buying a new motherboard to go with every new chip that comes out is getting a little tedious. Especially when the motherboards clock in at $300.00 bucks a pop, or more.
I saw a few enthusiast motherboards that cost a little over $500.00 yesterday.
They're coming out with lots of new ~PC-Bling~ for us, but they're ripping our balls out through our wallets to get it,.............
