What makes you think that I have to wait if my platform suffices as my new platform will last 3 gens so I might skip a gen.
Even my dual 1366 build which I build years ago still holds up to the higher mid end. (I'm just itching to upgrade but I would be in to late to go quad 2011(however I can get if for cheap 750 for the board and another 150 euro per proc))

That could've been the case also those benches aren't really that great would've rather seen Cinebench 11.5(however I won't be able to compare that with my new platform as Cinebench only goes up to 64 threads
