Yeah, same. Q1 2015 really doesn't bother me at all. More time to save up for a 5960X. You know, the 5960X might be the second coming of the 980X, seeing how it's the first consumer 8 core product. Just like how the 980 was the first 6 core product.
One thing that does annoy me slightly is that you get less of a relative performance increase going from 4 cores to 6 than it is to go from 6 to 8.
6 cores / 4 cores = 150%
8 cores / 6 cores = 133%
To match the old 150% increase, you'd have to go from a 6 to a 9 core processor.
Gosh, imagine if they release an 8 core K and a 10 core X. Holey Crap
Yeah I'd be right alongside you but I managed to get a 10k euro bonus for this gig I'm doing atm, so I'll probably be spending it on a monster to give me the will to start folding again.
