ASUS X79-Deluxe / MSI X79A-GD45 Plus / Gigabyte GA-X79-UP4 review: Socket 2011 for all price segments
22 December 2013
Excerpt: Normally when Intel launches a new generation of processors, it's followed by the introduction of a large number of new motherboards. When Ivy Bridge-E came out in September, that wasn't the case. That's because the Socket 2011 processors are compatible with the same Socket 2011 motherboards as their Sandy Bridge-E predecessors, and motherboard manufacturers had little reason for developing new motherboards.
