Default New socket to replace LGA1366 due in 2011?

Hereís a quick bit of overheard info for you Ė Intelís replacement for its current high-end Core i7 CPU range will arrive in Q3 2011, so if youíre planning an LGA1366 upgrade now (perhaps with a Core-i7 930) then itís still got plenty of life left in it.

The bad news is, there will be no compatibility between current LGA1366 Core i7s and the new socket. Intel is planning on launching a new socket for every new major CPU revision as itís continuing to incorporate more and more features into future CPUs, which means pin-counts and sockets will inevitably change.
