    That's not exactly "next gen", that's just the sandy bridge EXTREME version (6-core) that will most probably cost $900-$1100+, they've delayed it quite a bit into this year. The i7 970/975/980X equivalent, so to speak....still looking forward to buying it? :P
    Basically LGA1156 was for Low-Mainstream and LGA1366 was for Enthusiast-Extreme. For Sandy Bridge however they've managed to cover Low-Mainstream-Enthusiast on the single LGA1155 platform, and left the Extreme for LGA2011. Makes more sense

    Which is partly why i'm not bothered building the system I am, even current SB systems won't match dual six core Xeons for the moment. When 2011 comes out, who knows if they'll do something similar or not.

    Well from what I've heard the 1365 was supposed to be the replacement for the 1366 socket. (Ivybridge?) It was supposed to be due this year or next year, but I've heard that Intel may scrap that and move straight to the Haswell architecture which would be the 22nm scale and feature DDR4 Ram.

    Though I have no clue really as it seems to be all speculation. What I'm really interested to see is AMD's response to Sandy bridge and the new bulldozer CPU. Currently Intel is not only crushing AMD, but doing it cheaper too :/

    Intel has been crushing AMD for years now, and have been the king of overclocking longer than I can remember.

    I'm no fanboy. I would use AMD if they were better than intel, but clearly thats not the case, especially with overclocking.

    In sales yeah, in performance not by a whole lot (at first at least). The performance gap is getting bigger though for sure. Ideally, Bulldozer will place itself in between LGA1156 and LGA2066 CPU's, and I really hope it does. I know I'm personally not interested in a CPU with haphazard features, unfocused chipsets, and a useless IGP I won't use (1156), and I'm not interested in spending $400+ for a high end i7 (2066).

    AMDs actually overclock higher than Intel with LN, and had the first CPU to reach 6GHz. In sane home use Intel however runs stable with air cooler or simple water cooler at higher speed.

    Yea but those crazy overclocks with liquid nitrogen isn't really optimal for gaming though, is it. Just for overclocking enthusiast that enter competitions for it.

    Also the new sandy bridge cpus can easily overclock to 5ghz with air cooling. I'm sure those crazy enthusiast will be able to get some crazy overclocks.

    Past 5ghz, there's not much room left on the multiplier, and there's very little room to work with via the BCLK on Sandy Bridge.

    you left out the first part of the post. Even then, 6ghz on liquid nitrogen isn't optimal for extended use. 5ghz 24/7 using simple air cooling is much better than 6ghz for a couple minutes using very dangerous and risky liquid nitrogen haha.

    Pretty sure you can't work with the BCLK on Sandy Bridge even slight adjustments can really shorten the lifespan of the chip. I've seen a couple of people blow their chips messing with the BCLK.

    But yeah, 5ghz seems to be the wall for most.
