    Rumor from the motherboard arena is that the launch of its 14nm Skylake desktop processors and the 100-series chipsets are pushed back to the end of August. Originally, the chip giant planned to reve...

    But I'm really eager for Skylake. May be my upgrade

    Same here. Finally a worthy upgrade for Sandy users.

    How do we know it's 'worthy'?

    I am looking forward to this but Intel's track record the last few years with not much change is not great.

    would it be worth it to upgrade from Sandy Bridge-E?

    Unfortunately a lack of competitive competition can have that affect.

    I heard only the Xeons will have the new AVX 512bit extension, if so, Skylake-E will most likely have them and that would be my next upgrade from my Ivy-Bridge 4930k

    Well, at least from this point - when considering the year our CPUs came out, they got old :)

    They still rock, but we all like to have new technologies, more powerful and energy efficient components with less heat dissipation.

    We need to wait till August, so after Hilbert has done the first benchmarks, we will decide whether to or not to upgrade :)

    Old or not i'm not giving away that easy my 2500k that does 4.8ghz on 1.39v. Great chip.

    But yeah, we all like new shiny toys to play with. :D

    Will not be upgrading my CPU, no need, I doubt I will get one that will clock and undervolt as well as this one anyhow.

    It's not about lack of competition. They've hit a wall. Transistors are so small, die area is tiny, clock speed bumps require more and more voltage, and heat density is already very high. Overclocking headroom is decreasing (I had to overvolt my CPU for any sort of overclock), and more and more cores just won't solve single-threaded performance. You have a 5960X, which is clock-for-clock 33% faster than a hexa-core in very parallel workloads. Those are the benefits we get right now.

    My 2600K isn't going anywhere anytime soon. My case will get changed before my processor does.

    Your Sandybridge CPU is struggling in many apps/games atm? mine sure does not. Old or not as long as they perform well, there is not logical reason to upgrade other than throwing money at Intel just to have a new toy.

    If the increase in IPC is very high, I can see the excitement but other than that, SB is still a top CPU.

    Only thing My sandy has struggled with is star Citizen, but i'm not sure if my GPU or CPU is the bottleneck there, as they both hit nearly 100% usage during play.

    If you had HT it would be better, game likes more then 4 threads.

    Nah. Skylake-E in ~2017 maybe. What X179? chipset
