    Nope! Sticking with X79 until multicore REALLY takes off...

    Re: QOTW: Are you planning on upgrading to Intel Skylake?

    I won't be upgrading. I haven't seen anything to suggest this isn't going to be anything more than an incremental upgrade over my 2500k. I'm not sure I really need any more power at this point anyway.

    Re: QOTW: Are you planning on upgrading to Intel Skylake?

    Nope. After much internal debate, lots of it, just a huge mass of debating, I've decided to go 4K instead. I was gonna get new mobo/CPU/RAM, and upgrade my GPU to a 670 and get a 1440p monitor. But for the same price I can get a 980Ti and a 40" 4K TV.

    I have a 2500, yeah it isn't the best but it'd cost about £350-400 to upgrade it, and there is no CPU in the world that'd give a bigger FPS boost than a GPU for the same money.

    I'm gonna keep my 2500 until I am forced to change it

    Nope, I'm going to wait for the 2nd cpu generation using a 10nm manufacturing process so I actually notice the upgrade.

    Is it still slower than Haswell-E?

    Re: QOTW: Are you planning on upgrading to Intel Skylake?

    Given I'm on an i7-4790K (which itself was an upgrade over a Sandy Bridge i7), I have no need to change my whole platform that includes the still very expensive and not high performing to match DDR4.

    Kaby Lake might be where most might find it to be a worthy investment IMHO.

    Nothing shameful about mass debating... or so they tell me.

    Pretty much my thinking, although I'd go 4k monitor and spend the extra on a w/c loop.

    Nope, my 3570 will do until Intel can offer 8 cores at a decent price, or Zen delivers. I'd still have my 2500K if I hadn't given it away.

    Currently rocking a respectably overclocked 3770K at 4.6GHz. if the skylake parts are incredible overclcokers as some of the leaked info has shown then i may consider a replacement for my ivy bridge machine.

    Re: QOTW: Are you planning on upgrading to Intel Skylake?

    I hope to be sticking with my 4770K for at least another 4 years, so Skylake will be getting a miss from me. Cannonlake too. Beyond that... Maybe I'll upgrade when we change over to Graphene

    Nope - and I'm still rocking my i7-920 (bought Jan '09) at stock & my glorious 8800GTX (bought Mar '07)! I do have 48GB DDR3-1600 on an Asus P6T Deluxe, Samsung 850 EVO - plentiful for running Win 8.1 Pro & 3 VMs concurrently (with 1 VM configured booting 8 instances).

    Mighty enough for my consumption...
