I’m starting to get pretty excited for the release of Ivy Bridge. I’ve been running the same system for about 4.5 years now and while it’s still in great condition, I’m itching to build a new powerhouse.
Last week I shared with you an article giving our first preview of Ivy Bridge performance. Today I bring you an article showcasing our upcoming 7-series motherboards.
It looks like things are likely to line up similarly to Sandy Bridge. While we don’t have benchmarking of any kind yet it’s looking like my value recommendation will be the i5-3570k with the Asus Z77 Pro.
A Brief Look at Some Upcoming 7-Series Motherboards
With Intel’s next generation processors firmly on the horizon, we should also turn to what motherboards will be on offer when we have the opportunity to root around in our pockets to invest in an next generation system. With appropriate vendor support, 6-series motherboards will support these new processors with little more than a BIOS update, however to get the most out of the new processor, we have to look at the new range of motherboards about to hit the market.
