    Real problem is not the dieshrink, nor the 3D transistors. The real problem is the thermal paste used between the CPU die and the integrated heatspreader instead of fluxless solder like before. This is why many enthusiasts "delid" their CPUs and replace the stock Intel thermal paste with an aftermarmet thermal interface material (Coollaboratory Liquid Metal Ultra, or other non-metallic thermal paste).

    I'd rather see better performance per core instead of more than four cores, at least for gaming.

    The only reason I even got that 3770k was because I got it and that Sabertooth z77 for next to nothing. Otherwise I wouldn't of bothered with it.

    Actually the thermal paste has nothing to do with it. It's the gap between the IHS and the chip.

    I mean yeah obviously better paste makes a small difference, but the vast majority comes from removing the glue. So if you delidded and didn't remove the glue as good as you should -- go back and do it, you'll drop much further.

    Not really, it's just moved to things don't effect gamers.

    Looks like I'll be running my 3770k delid for a while yet. Somewhat glad, as I fancy a top of the range Lian Li case next anyway! We are quite sad aren't we?! lol :p

    My old "980X" is still going strong. I have no intention of changing this chip for the forseeable future, unless something epically awesome (IB-E?) comes along and utterly annihilates it in terms of performance and overclockability, but given this will 4.6 GHz, i'm not worried. Still tweaking the OC at the minute for absolute max performance, but the old beast has a lot to give.

    Not bad scores for the 4770k.
    Well I am interested in that i5 4670k. I was eying a 2500K but that processor might not be available in a years time when I upgrade the rig that I have now due to the fact that CPU is going to be EOL at some point. Plus upgrading to a 3570k after the Haswell processors are released would be pointless. With my current rig any i5 or i7 CPU would be a huge upgrade for me.

    It looks like I'm not upgrading anytime soon. Might skip Broadwell too.

    This is what im wondering aswell.

    Well see how power efficient is once the reviews come out. Intel has been puking rainbows about Haswell power efficiency, need to see how much truth is in that.

    is SB TDP around 65W? iirc. I'll be skipping Haswell too, same as Anarion, will probably skipp Broadwell as well.

    weird, thought IB had higher TDP than SB, or does IB have higher TDP when overclocked?

    They moved the VRMs off the motherboard and integrated them into the CPU. So instead of having like 75w CPU and 25w motherboard, they have like 84w CPU and 5w motherboard. Also the CPU can now shift states much, much faster.
