I guess this would be kinda joke if it was to come to Desktop...

Lately not only we don't see noticable imrovements with each new series, but due to its lower voltage requirements, chances would be on even lower perfomance than Sandy/Ivy/Haswell.

IIRC, Intel were having some issues with the 14 nm process.

Are the Z87 boards going to work with this after a BIOS update?

That's from the chipset. PCIe 3.0 will be integrated into the processor as it is now.

The truth is that in terms of speed AMD is not keeping up so what is the point to make huge steps in terms of speed when AMD is always behind.

looks like I'll be staying on z77 for a while if I'm honest. this 2500k is turning out to be quite a bargain, getting great value out of it!

I don't really see that happening. This is intel in the end, new sockets for everything.

Broadwell is still LGA1150 and was originally planed to be Z87 compatible, just like IvyBridge is with older Z68 models

Same with my 2600K. I see no reason to upgrade before 2015 unless Broadwell provides some unexpectedly massive performance gain...

On a 3570K here, but I'm pretty much of the same opinion. I'm really not seeing anything that looks like a worth while upgrade any time soon.

We need AMD to get back on the ball and release something that forces Intel to really innovate again. The last couple years, the only competition Intel has had, is themselves on desktop and ARM in mobile. Quite honestly, it feels as though Intel is becoming complacent in the desktop market.

I've just upgraded to a 4820k from a 920 and I do not regret. I even thought I would have less gain than I really had at 4.2Ghz, and the 4820k is much cooler by almost 20ºC, on the same WC block. And DDR4 should be quite expensive at haswell-e time of release.
