I was thinking about that too, but you have to look at Sandy Bridge as a whole, especially since there's no competition from those other guys.
2600K & 2500K haven't been replaced in the 10 months they've been released.
Wonder if the same pattern will follow with SB-E.
I doubt we'll get an 8 core SB-E, but rather, an 8 core IB-E.
