30% clock for clock, but haswell clocks much higher than bloomfield so you're really looking at a much larger increase.

Why is everyone mentioning "Cant wait for 8 cores"?

Besides Haswell-E, nothing coming out from Intel for awhile will have 8 cores. Broadwell is staying with the current core scheme, and Skylake should too.

I am definitely looking forward to Broadwell as a mobile user. Give me a better iGP and lower power consumption for a better price (I swear, theres no decent 11.6" or 13.3" notebook that is for a decent price anymore with Intel inside. It ALWAYS has to have some kind of "I do backflips and 3D and 68-point multitouch with four touchpads everywhere and backlit keyboards on the screen and under the laptop" gimmick. I just want a good notebook for a good price with good battery life. Is that so much to ask for?

Apparently so. And so I will wait for Broadwell to make battery life better and I am waiting for Airmont to buff up Silvermont.

Ohhh how I am waiting for Airmont.

Skylake will no doubt have 6 cores on mainstream

Here's my support:

"First SkyLake CPU side, the Intel Xeon processor, will be the E3-1200 v5 (Core i 6th), this is also the continuation of the current naming tradition. Pin aspects will have know better, this will transform Broadwell's LGA 1150 LGA 1151. As the number of core areas, and no change, still remain at 2C4T or 4C8T."

I can't remember who pointed me towards this, so sorry to whomever that was.

Of course, take this information with the usual grain of salt. But this is a little better than speculation, methinks.

There will be no quad cores with X99. The cheapest processor will be a 6 core for 329.99 taking over the 4820K's position. It will make no sense to make the 6770K a quad core priced higher then the 6 core 6820K

Is there a source to this? Not trying to call you a liar or anything, but you're being very specific with your information which suggests you have a source you're not inclined to sharing headscratch.gif

No concrete info. Pure speculation from all of us

Oh wait, I only just tuned in to realize you said X99.

Yeah, you're probably right. I thought you were talking about Z97 (or whatever they're gonna be called in Skylake... I honestly have no clue.) or whatever the maintstream chipset will be.

LGA2011 is not maintstream.

I'm saying the mainstream platform won't peak above quadcore.

Unless he upgrades the graphics card in which case the i5 760 might fall short.

Some rumours claim that Intel will launch a $400 hexa core Haswell-E CPU as the cheapest X99 model. Assuming that is correct, there'd be no point in a similarly priced quad core Broadwell part. All speculation though.

Personally, I think 6- or 8-core CPU's will be the optimal purchase in the near future even for gaming. Quad cores are great, but it's an issue that some games still don't work well with HT. Since HT often has no impact, or even a negative impact, on performance even in games that support 4+ cores (e.g. Battlefield 3), I think an extra pair of physical cores would be a great help in enthusiast systems with CFX/SLI. i5's certainly aren't enough for a multi-GPU system anymore. Even my CPU has issues in certain games and I have last-gen graphics cards.

A quad core i7 is currently more than good enough for the average Joe of course.
