Haswell is the result of innovation like it has ever been with Intel, packs onboard FIVR, far faster IGP and much better power consumption. They're improving where they need to.

Also, why are you even talking about AMD fail FX 9590? Its really off topic.
So they're far ahead of AMD and they have CPUs that crushes every tasks they're made for, how's that a fail?
Calling AMD off-topic, not sure if serious.
Also just a side note: people have no reason to upgrade from Sandy/Ivy but if there was a slight boost in performance would that justify the upgrade? You can do pretty much any mainstream tasks on these anyway. So people who want to upgrade every 6 months don't necessarily need a performance bump to do it right.
