    Why does everything have to be about gaming? This is a hardware forum, not a gaming forum.

    Clearly there are products on the market such as Ultrabooks, 8+-core processors, and reference media production displays that are not meant for gaming, no? This is one of them.

    We wont see soon from Intel a CPU with 10+ cores on consumer market.
    These CPUs are for enthusiasts as it was i7-5960X Extreme Edition (20M Cache, up to 3.50 GHz,TDP 140W) @ 1000$.

    Only Xeons(enterprise) will give us that powa.Ofc if you have more cash to give them. ;)

    That is like asking why ever one here thinks EVERYone should OC.

    My point stand anyway majority of programs barely use 4 cores correct, gaming or other wise.

    Speaking about gaming performance from this CPU.

    Another DX12 promise is a better use of CPU cores or at least the possibility to do it.

    At least one thing will be better in DX12 for sure: the API overhead performance will be greatly improved and the API bottleneck on DX11 wil be pushed somewhere else in DX12.

    It's time to wait and see what game devs really do with all this new possibilities in DX12 (multi-core simultaneous usage) before buying a very expensive CPU who could not worth his price for gaming.

    i was gonna get the 5960X. I decided to wait for the 6900K since its pretty much the same with a 200mhz core clock increase. Do you guys think the 6900K launch price will be noticeable cheaper than the 5960X's Laucnh price? Should be yea? K vs X

    looking forward for upgrading:banana::banana::banana:

    hopefully there are no 28lane,but 32lane minimum (SLI full bandwith x16 x16):)

    hope it comes to with Asus release their Rampage V Black Edition,it's really bada$$ performance mate:)

    More than 4 cores is still useless to 90% of all consumers, including gamers.

    I'm still even on Core 2 architecture, QX9770 quadcore, linked to an early DDR3 board and I'm getting 80% of performance with my R9 290 opposed to the benchmarks in reviews where the R9 is paired with an modern i7 ...
    Can't justify the investment. I hooked up a sata6G/usb3 controller card for little money, attached an SSD to it and my system is fast and snappy with negligible difference in boot times, app launch times, etc. compared to modern systems.

    I guess most of us people with more than 2C/4T hope that dx12 brings more use to the cores. Or we do stuff on the machines besides / at the same time as gaming.

    I can't see any real use of 10 core 20 threads at home. No gain in gaming, pale gain in Windows, only high speed compress and bench bragging. And those 25 MB of L3 cache, ¿¿¿who the hell needs 25 MB of L3 cache?? That's not entuthiast but stupid, because it's a server class cpu, not a home-entuthiast-hardcore-whatever cpu.

    Video rendering/encoding will always benefit. When I'm rendering from premier, it maxed out all 16 threads @ 100% on my 5960x

    In games 8+ cores(threads) are useless,because lazy devs or unoptimized games (e.g. FO4).If you want to bragging here with your 10+ cores CPU do it but you're a noob. :D

    In Adobe Premiere,madVR,Sony Vegas Pro,even PS wants more cores and you will do a great job with 10+ cores CPU.

    Well if someone wants to be happy of his rig take something like this and be proud:

    Supermicro Dual socket R3 (LGA 2011),Up to 1TB ECC DDR4 2133MHz

    Intel® Xeon® Processor E5-2680 v3 (30M Cache, 2.50 GHz, 12 cores, 24 threads)

    there is 3 segment
    1. browsing-mail-chatting-light gaming user = tablet/phablet all those ARMs proc enough
    2. PC gamer- light designer (people doing light photo retouch/design) = all latest mid range intel cpu is enough, just throw money at GPU
    3. designer (either 2D or 3D-related to rendering-post processing) = high end consumer cpu/workstation class

    but using full cpu threads or not, all (most) people want the"best" especially if they have money

    hoping we hearing more about skylake-e soon
    broadwell-e is good, except chipset X99 kinda outdated to me, it only last like 1 year before skylake-e with new chipset coming right?

    intel should pair broadwell-e with new chipset instead and upgradeable to skylake-e

    In what way is x99 outdated? name me one feature that is currently out there that is not supported by x99... even if skylake-e was to be released anytime soon, there isn't any improvements on features as of yet.

    i agree bro..even now x99+Haswell-E is still good bargain then build with z170+Skylake (it's my opinion)...Skylake-E maybe released at the end 2016-early 2017..:)

    I am sure glad you are not in charge of Intel's cpu business. Personally, I would love a 10 core processor but, I will not spend the kind of money I am sure it will cost because I cannot justify the lack of ROI for me.

    Enthusiasts sockets / chipsets have never survived longer than a few years in the past... so they all were outdated? ;)
    They can't pair Broadwell-E not with X99 as Skylake-E will have a different socket than the current one (2011-3).

    I debated long and hard on upgrading to either the 5820K or the 6700K from my 2500K. I ended up going with the 5820K due to the fact that with the current demand for the 6700K's, they are priced well above MSRP and upgrading to the 5820K was actually cheaper. So far I've been quite happy with the 5820K. Some people said to wait for Broadwell-E, but I'm pretty sure Broadwell-E would have ended up costing me more than the deal I got for the 5820K.

    Any more info on these? like release date?

    I might go with the 6800k and x99 instead of the 6700k and z170 do to the price quging still going on with the 6700k. well proving it is same price of the 5820k which is still cheapper then the 6700k
