    Intel have to get a 'tock' in before they change feature size again for their CPUs, so I reckon it'll be 2014 before we see any i-series CPUs at 14nm, and they'll be running whatever micro-architecture comes forth in the next 12 months.

    The Ivy Bridge 22nm process was however widely regarded as a bit of a disappointment due to the heat issues with the 3D transistor tech
    Or is this really just the crappy TIM Intel have used, as highlighted in one of your other articles today?

    Unless they use IB-E as the tock then delay haswell till later in the year as 14nm tick.

    The whole reason they replaced solder with thermal paste is because they are focusing on mobile sector where there is no overclocking so the chips are fine for laptops etc.

    In that case they could have only used thermal paste for laptop CPUs.. Besides, laptops are an environment where you don't want poor heat dissipation. Really the only place it isn't a big deal is the non-K desktop chips.. and even then it's additional, unnecessary noise.

    Unless you overclock the temperatures are within acceptable limits easily thanks to reduced overall TDP, a chip is fine ticking along with the new TIM. There may be technical reason other than cost shaving we don't know about.

    K series chips come with no promise on overclocking, still you can achieve good boost using improved cooling so I think this is just people asking for the moon on a stick for the price of a cheese and pineapple nibble.

    Maybe they don't promise overclockability, but since the K series is specifically priced higher cos it CAN overclock and also they are giving us the option to buy overclocking protection, I think we are asking for it because they are telling us they are doing it and asking for a lot more money than the standard non-K series CPUS.

    I think they saw that Ivy bridge would surpass sandy bridge if they made it as perfect as they could, so thought to save a few and achieve comparable performance yet price them slightly higer due to the wonders of pci-e 3 support, which would be the ONLY solid reason to buy one over a sandy bridge. Saying IB is more efficient is like saying only having a quarter pounder with medium fries is more healthy than a double with large fries..
