Re: Question? under $1000 video production rig is it possible
Sandy bridge is as david said the architecture name. Whats easier to say Sandybridge or FCBGA1224?
1155 is the socket style. Like how Core2duo was 775, same as Pentium 4s
And for the future... Only dumb embarassing question is the one you don't ask.
Now, my honest opinion on 2600k or 2500k would be to go 2500k now as in under a year Intel is releasing true hex core chips which will most likely out do the 2600k and is 1155 socket style.
