Thread: UD5 35nm compatibility?




  1. #1

    Default UD5 35nm compatibility?

    Will the UD5 EX58 socket be compatible with the 32nm intel chips reportedly due out in november, as well as with the current 45nm i7's?

    As well as with the current 45nm i7's? Of course it is compatible with the current ones, not sure what you meant by that last part though?

    Yes, X58 UD5 will be compatible with the upcoming 32nm i9's. UD5 and Extreme's used in testing i9 here >>>

    Yes it will, 100%.

    There may be a BIOS update required, as with LGA 775 when Core 2 moved to 45nm, but Intel wouldn't shoot themselves in the foot by making anything radically different. They already shot themselves in the head by releasing two sockets, with Core i7 being used in both (their marketing/branding team must lick windows or something). Pin layout will be identical and architectural differences will be minimal.

    Ya, I cannot believe they made two sockets and on top of that are using same/similar names for the CPU's!

    They must have gotten into my private 70's stash or something :)

    Thanks for the swift replies folks -was fairly confident that was going to be the case, but hadn't come across those 32nm cpu tests. Pretty much confirms my choice will be UD5.
