Essentially, if you're planning for Sandy Bridge, don't buy a current LGA 1156 platform. Now, what about the higher end, LGA 1366? I'm wondering if that one will be backwards compatible.

The fact that the two mentioned in this article are not capatible doesn't entirely surprise me. However, the 1366 processors are only connected to the board through a single QPI link. Thus, I am left to wonder how this will change.

No a new socket- rumors say - will replace the current lga 1366 it will have 2011 pins lga 2011 ? I believe that it will surface sometime around Q1 2011.

Yeah that seems to be accurate.
