New Desktop Computers

Beginning March 2012, we’re retiring the MSI socket 775 motherboards we have been using for the past two years, and moving to the new Intel socket 1155 motherboard and processor.

While socket 1155 uses the same size and type of heat-sink fan, the chip is entirely different and significantly faster. Comparing the 3ghz socket 775 E5700 with the 2600mhz socket 1155 G620, the G620 offers 50% more cache.  While the clock speed is 20% lower, the cache performance on the G620 is ten times higher.
