I just received the latest CustomPC in the mail and only a few pages in and I see information on the successors to the Core i generation - Sandy Bridge (E). Apparently due for release early next year (late next year for the E version) Sandy Bridge CPUs will have all the controllers (including a better IGP) on a single die, rather than on a separate die inside the CPU. It'll also have 1 less pin than the current SKT1156 (making it SKT1155) and therefore will not be interchangeable with Core i3/5. Dual and quad flavours expected. Sandy Bridge E will be the successor to Core i7. Using SKT2011, it'll feature 4-channel DDR3, native SATA/SAS 6Gbps and PCI-Express 3. Is it just me, or does this seem a bit too soon for another generation of CPUs to come out, when the last generation didn't really do much for the gaming market except take the quality of laptops up one notch? Also, I hate to imagine how big the HSF for a SKT2011 will be.
