Did you know that the hardest mineral after the diamond is the sapphire?

Capable of scratching ANYTHING - except for a diamond.

I believe that mineralogy will apply to IT this year...

...and along those lines, a lowly piece of coal under pressure turns into a diamond.

Had one bad GPU - wanna bet what it was?

Diamond? LOL.

Those boards look pretty good. Surrounding the CPU with two banks makes sense with quad-channel memory. Seeing they all have only 4 DDR sockets makes me happy I bought 4GB sticks, problem is I need one more and they don't sell singles. They all have the same power layout near the CPU. Some even have dual 8pin Molex's. I am sure this board will have several generations made to reach maturity as well as Intels new Ivy Bridge CPU's. My water block sure would look nice on top of the CPU socket.

Re: X79 Boards

Socket 1155? Or is Ivy Bridge going to be yet another one? The molex connectors on the boards look almost retro. I mean my Socket A boards had them. I think they were to augment AGP slot power if memory serves. I'm sure they have a different function here I like the side to side DIMMS. I wonder if they were purposely hiding the lower edge of the boards with those annoying stickers. You can't see a lot of it like the SATA ports.

Re: X79 Boards

Ivy bridge is Intels next Tick (die-shrink) of Sandy Bridge. It is going from 32nm to 22nm and will use tri-planar transistors as well for some really more efficient chips. It will come in socket 1155 and 2011 flavors. Ivy Bridge will also support DDR3 1600, PCIe 3.0, and if the CPU has a GPU in it it will support DX11 and be faster.

I really can't fathom how efficient these chips are going to be at 22nm and 3 dimensional transistors. My current 32nm 6-core is very efficient already. It only gets hot when you go above 4GHz.

Re: X79 Boards

Lets see my FX-57 was, I believe, 95nm. My current i7 is at 32nm. So if that trend continues we should be subatomic in about 5 years They are going to have to hit a wall with "die shrinks" before too long one would think. I have read a bit about molecular computers and that molecules actually have the right architecture to act as a transistor (in theory) so I suppose anything is possible. I just wonder if, baring some completely new technology, the whole world simply doesn't explode because they can't build a faster microchip. Redundancy and transistor size has been the trends so far. Again I wonder where it will end or if indeed it ever will. Sorry I know a bit OT.

Even at 5.0g I have very little heat problems at present. Granted I went to some expense with the liquid cooling (admittedly entry level) and a case that might as well be outdoors. It is pretty amazing. The only way I can really overheat it is to run prime for more then 1/2 hour. Even gaming at that speed (say Crysis2 @ max settings) it rarely goes over 50c. My FX in the end idled at about that.

As tempting as each new piece of technology that comes out is, for me about 2 years is when I want a completely new platform. I went wayyy too long last time mainly due to having no money. So in the meantime I will try to sit on my hands for a little while at least

Re: X79 Boards

I did not notice the dual molex. Does this mean a new PSU or snag a molex off of a rail?

Sapphire (AMD)

Re: X79 Boards

I googled and found nothing with substance, at least for this audience anyway. I am sure in the next few months we'll get more info.

Re: X79 Boards

I noticed from socket 775/1366 how the CPU HS mounting holes were a ways off the socket. It might have been done for future sockets like this one. Intel says you can use 1366 HS on 2011 socket. If you look you will notice the HS mounting holes are part of the socket retention bracket. That should make for a very solid HS foundation.

Yeah I new it was Sapphire but Diamond fit

I meant to say two 8pin Molex's. One of the boards has this.
Also, a few of the boards previewed have no PCI slots, just PCIe.
I think the X58 has 36 PICe lanes available and X79 is suppose to have around 42.
