    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?

    If this thing is end 2014 then skylake will be much later .. damn. I guess this is my most likely upgrade then.

    Why PCI-E 2.0 and not 3.0?

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

    Good news tbh, Haswell only just come out, would piss me off if I had to upgrade like a few months later already lol.

    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!

    Well I kinda expected Haswell-E to be so late, but no one believed it ;)

    Yes please.

    Well that was the original plan, hopefully they're gonna stick to it or else!! :p

    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...

    probably upgrade to X99 myself, hopefully haswell-e kicks off with 6 core as starter chip an 8 core as 5930k? then maybe 10 core as 5990x? who knows

    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.
