Intel To Introduce The Successor To Its LGA1366 CPU Socket In 2011?

If you’re looking to building your own cloned computer with the latest and greatest, you might want to take note of the latest rumor, which suggests that Intel is planning to introduce a new CPU socket next year. While a new socket might be good news to some folks, the downside is that apparently there will be no compatibility between the current LGA1366 Core i7s and the new socket. According to the rumor, there will also be a new chipset to accompany the socket, unofficially nicknamed “X68” at the moment, which will feature four DDR3 RAM slots instead of the six that you see on current X58 boards. If this rumor turns out to be true, will you be changing your upgrade plans for your computer, or are you still planning to get a new rig in the next few months?
