The Intel LGA 2011 socket and Intel X79 Express chipset came to market in November 2011 when Intel first introduced 6-core Sandy Bridge-E processors. This platform has been around for quite some time and early adopters might be itching to update to something a bit newer. Intel today is finally introducing Ivy Bridge-E processors for LGA 2011 platforms, which means that this will be a drop in CPU replacement (after a BIOS flash) on some of the Intel X79 Chipset motherboard that have been sold over the years. Many companies like ASUS will also be doing an 'X79 Refresh' and coming out with a number of boards that have updated components for those looking for something more than just a drop-in processor replacement. Intel will be launching three Ivy Bridge-E processors for the LGA2011 platform. You have the Intel Core i7-4960X at $990, the Intel Core i7-4930K at $555 and the Intel Core i7-4820K at $310.
