Might? I'd say for sure.

Not necessarily because you could argue that is already the case with the 3970X vs 3930k. You'd be fighting a loosing battle trying to argue that the extra money spent on a 3970X is worth it against a 3930k with both overclocked to 5000mhz. I'm yet to own a 2011 CPU that didn't hit 5000mhz stable 24/7 and other than the higher binned chips doing it with less volts I don't see a problem as long as the new 3910k would do 5000mhz also within voltage limits that allowed you to run it 24/7 ie: under 1.5v.

Who knows though.

That's why I think $400-$450, not too cheap but still not too expensive.

Indeed, but considering the 3930k hits around 4.7Ghz average according to hwbot on air, I'd still take it at 4.3-4.5 as it'd be faster than virtually anything else I could buy for less than $600.

An 8 core desktop/workstation CPU would not clock very well while being good in multi-thread, it would basically fill the exact same role that PIledriver does right now (great for people who need multi-thread and are willing to sacrifice single thread to save money), except Piledriver would be cheaper.

I realize this probably looks dumb comparing it to Piledriver, but PD has about half as many transistors and the die size is significantly smaller than SB-E class chips.

It'd OC worse, but if you had a good WC loop and a board with good VRMs I could see 4.5Ghz or so being possible on a good chip, if not at least 4Ghz...And they'd still be more than fast enough for most people in single-threaded stuff.

There's also this possibility, because the step between the 4770k and 4930k/3570k and 3960k is quite a large one, it'd make sense to have a chip in the middle.
