Default socket 1366 discontinued?

Getting a qoute on the Gigabyte GA EX58 Extreme motherboard today.
Shop keeper dude told me you can no longer get this board because intel has discontinued this socket (LGA 1366) already.
Is this for real or is he just full of ____.
Was told Socket 1156 is replacing it.

youd be surprised how many computer store owners/workers dont know what the fuck theyre talking about.

socket 1366 is here to stay, and will remain the intel flagship for some time yet

id prolly avoid dealing with a store like that at all - a computer store that isnt up to date is a computer store that cannot be trusted.

Alot of suppliers just can't get in any Gigabyte 1366 boards at all right now, so if a retailer looks at that, they'll think "gee, must be discontinued".

1156 replaces nothing, simply compliments 1366. To summarise: 1156=mainstream 1366=enthusiast

Didnt think Intel was that crazy. This computer guy was talking ST for about 10 mins how his customers purchased cpu's and now have no motherboard to put it on.

Anyone know a good/cheap online store to purchase from? MSY dosnt stock.

Gigabyte is revising their entire X58 boards with new revision hence the old EX58 is EOL replaced by a new X58 Extreme revision board. Asus are also doing same with revised X58 boards.

What's fixed in the revision?

Also is X58 just going to be high end boards from now on?

24 phases.


No joke, they are doing this for the ud5 and extreme and this will no doubt increase the price. . .. . . . ud4 goes to 12 from 8.

For those who actually have a life and missed this way back in June, you can read about it here. I openly admit to not having a life. ... rofl.

AFAIK, big change is to fix the limited max <222 bclk on their existing boards. You could do a hardware mod to existing boards + private beta bios to get >222bclk. But i'm guessing new revised Gigabyte X58 should have higher bclk headroom.

That and more phases so GA-EX58A-UD4 series will have 12 phases vs old 8 phase. GA-EX58A-UD5 series will have 24 phases instead of 12 phases.

New Gigabyte series has an A added to it so GA-EX58A Extreme, GA-EX58A-UD4P etc

I fear the EX58A boards have been cancelled

tbh if it wasn't for gulftown cpu's coming i'd say the future is not rosy for 1366..

Must be the economic climate at play or they still have alot of old X58 stock on hand that need to get rid of first ?

I have heard a few rumours that the reason the boards were cancelled is that Intel has a new 1366 chipset up it's sleeve - With USB3 native along with SATA3.

The rumour is that they may not hit the streets until April.

That said, I would expect Eva, Dinos and youngpro to be able to eek out some more info on these from the manufacturers... go type some emails fellas.

I wonder if there will be a whole new range from all board makers to prepare for the westmere architecture. It mightn't be worthwhile to release a revision for the time being.

i hope there's not a more sinister reason like needing an updated vrm spec for westmere cpus

well the Gigabyte EX58A news while back already stated support for USB3/SATA3 so not something new. So probably Gigabyte holding back EX58A launch due to the SATA3 controller issues ???

Wow I did not know that they were cancelled. Is this the only source? Eva, didn't know about that but it will definitely would have been nice for benchers.

=[ I hope other companies don't start cancelling mobos.

ICH10 will be replaced with PCH from P55 mobos. So that could be what is happening. PCH does not support sata3 or usb3. x58 wise, all there is, is the b3 revision but I'm not sure what difference it makes. I'm sure others know though.
