    Not going to be long before the "High End" cpu's are a full 2 cycles behind the mainstream. They're almost that much behind the ULV's as it is.
    Come on AMD, get that Zen competitive and out there. I just hope to hell it's within 10% ipc of Kaby-Lake, Intel needs another Athlon64-ish kickin' to get innovative and competitive again.

    The clock speeds look very low. I hope we actually see some worthwhile improvement from Intel this time and Broardwell isn't another 3% faster per core can't overclock for toffee disappointment.

    Plus 15% improvement perclock and 5Ghz capable isn't much to ask for this kind of money.

    I guess that Intel will discontinue X99 after this release. So probably no upgrade for me. But it comes out just by the time I should have some spare money for an upgrade...

    Re: Intel Core i7 Broadwell-E launch set for Q2 2016 suggests leak

    IMHO Intel should've skipped Broadwell on the desktop (not counting All-in-Ones). The normal varieties didn't have a long shelf life and I'm sure Intel could've pulled in Skylake-E instead of wasting time and resources on Broadwell-E. Perhaps a couple of months later than the suggested Broadwell-E launch, but still...

    The Broadwell-E looks interesting, especially with 10 cores! But I'm disappointed with the clock speed. It took a month to OC my i7 5960X to 4.5 using 1.285v and that's AFTER replacing my Noctua NH-D15S with a Thermaltake Ultimate water 3.o, using six Noctua NF-F12 PWM fans for quiet cooling. After all that, I'm not sure I want to bother upgrading until Skylake-E comes out.

    Re: Intel Core i7 Broadwell-E launch set for Q2 2016 suggests leak

    To be fair they've added 2 whole cores (+ hyperthreading) while keeping both the tdp and clock speeds the same to the top model, hopefully it won't increase the price.

    I don't think that's too bad considering the market this is targeting and it will likely have some headroom in it too like the previous versions. Would I like more, yes of course I would but the simple fact is until AMD gets something out there that can compete there is no reason for Intel to rush.

    It's a pleasant surprise that my system (X99, 5930k) has a sweet upgrade path in a few years (10 Core Br-E!)

    I thought their wouldn't be any tbh

    This is great news, I'm just in the process of building myself a new X99/5820K system, and to know that it now has an improved upgrade path is good :-)
