i7 960 recognition

Recommended Posts

Picking a new processor. Would anyone know the difference between these 2?

INTEL CORE I7 960 SKT-1366 - £221.50

Intel Core i7 960 / 3.2 GHz processor - £247.95

Really interested in knowing what the SKT means. <_<

SKT = Socket LGA1366 it always bugs me why Amazon can offer two almost identical things for sale But not give you the same information or discription, so you cant compare them :wall:

*** edit***

In fact if you look in the description the both have the same item model number BX80601960

I would say ones an old add that has not been remover or amended

I think they're both the same thing. "SKT-1366" is not part of the part number - it's just extra information telling you that it fits LGA1366 motherboards.

If you don't already have a motherboard you may want to consider a newer Sandybridge-based CPU instead - the ridiculously fast i7-2600K looks like it's around the same price.

Kinda thought it would be the same thing. Did look at that Sandy model, but had a mobo in mind already that is 1366. Have a better look over it tomorrow. Thnx.

That is the issue every time.

980 rolling in @ over £400 and the 990 hitting £800. :huh:
