In a bit of a turn-around of events corrosponding to Intel's much awaited high-end Sandy Bridge-E platform, it's looking like the company is really pushing to get it out as soon as possible. It wasn't all that long ago we were hearing rumours of the company taking it easy and focusing on an early 2012 launch, but the latest word brings much more pleasant news for the many of us enthusiasts eager to get our mits on it.

Slides via the folks at DonanimHaber indicate that we will witness launch on week 46 of 2011, which means right around November 15. Both a range of processors and Intel branded desktop motherboards will accompany that day's launch and should be ready for purchase immediately. We would be anticipating the big name motherboard vendors to have their first wave of LGA2011 offerings readied up at that time too.

 

Processor wise, the slide confirms we'll see three LGA2011 processors grace us at launch; the Core i7-3960X Extreme Edition 6-core Unlocked processor, Core i7-3930K 6-core Unlocked processor and Core i7-3820 4-core processor. And as for accompanying Intel branded X79 Express desktop boards, there will be the DX79SI and DX79TO.
