    While desktop Broadwell will probably be a good chip it seem to be quickly swamped by Skylake.
    Difficult to see a reason to go with Broadwell even if it's big improvement.

    To use the same board. Broadwell will use LGA 1150, Skylake moves on to 1151.

    Well this is good news for anyone on 1150 socket u can upgrade to 14nm without having to buy a whole new system.

    Table seems like its Misaligned. The Cache values are added in the wrong column :)

    Still no word on Skylake-E. Hmm.

    3.1Ghz for i5 5675C and 3.3Ghz for i7-5775C? You got to be kidding me. Skylake cant come fast enough.

    Notice how the Skylake lists show memory as DDR3-1600, but the Broadwell lists, on Socket 1151, show the memory as DDR4 2133 or/DDR3L 1600.

    Are you sure? :3eyes:
    Did you maybe mix it up a little by accident, since Broadwell (1150) does indeed list as DDR3, and Skylake as LGA1151 does support both DDR4 and DDR3.

    Might be tempted to go for a top end Broadwell chip since it'll fit in my board. Hopefully they'll overclock like mad being 14nm.

    Am not really getting the high TDP of all the chips? Will wait for "Skylake-E" anyway, but still I was hoping for a much improved TDP..

    Just because it will fit the socket, doesn't mean the board will actually support it.

    Unless Intel starts using mobile designs, you're really not going to see much lower TDP for a desktop chip.

    Btw: Unless you're designing cooling solutions or pre-built systems, the TDP is completely meaningless.

    I will keep my 2600k , I really really really want to change it , except I would like to see visible performance gain. to change only for nice motherboard is a reason but not too strong

    Price may be lower this time round and/or they are going after AMD's APU/GPU performance or a combination of both... Can't see why else would Intel have these chips out.

    Same.

    Might actually pick up a 6 core this summer. At least I'd be somewhat safe if Windows 10 and DX12 would suddenly make extra cores more useful.

    I can relate to that way of thinking about hexacores and win10/dx12.

    I made the mistake of mixing up the Broadwell with Skylake. Stupid Intel releasing two CPU's at the same time! If you have LGA1150 you're probably more likely to want to just replace the motherboard as well and get Skylake anyway :). It seems they're only releasing Broadwell in the hope that people on LGA1150 will upgrade (which they will), instead of forfeiting the work they did on it.

    I wonder how many people will accidentally buy Broadwell with a socket 1151 motherboard? I'm sure in store they'd mostly correct you, but online, that's a different matter...

    1156 (have one)
    1155 (have one)
    1150 (have two)
    1151 (coming soon)

    I miss the days of long lived sockets like 775. I have never had so much PC stuff that isn't compatible.

    There is a balance between the lifespan of the socket and not holding back the CPU because of the socket (or chipset). In Intel's case, they are just doing this because they are dominant, and potentially holding back chipset support for later sockets just to have an excuse to claim you need a new socket.

    AMD on the other hand, probably went the opposite way and kept the AM3+ compatibility thing way too long, which was probably detrimental to them.

    Cannonlake would surely be supported on the same socket as Skylake...
