I guess I'm just getting a new GPU and monitor this year then.

IVR= great for mobile and bad for desktop.

guess im getting a z87 mobo and 4770...

I might as well wait until DDR 4 prices go down since its going to be new tech anyway, its going to be pricey

Isn't that wat it's all about... milking the "cash" cow (aka us, the users/buyers)! I do agree with you though and do wish that it wasn't all about that. We can only hope to see miracles for the future wink.gif and get the best avaialble product within your budget today. I have been scouring the net for an UltraBook with the "dream" specs but to no avail... nothing out there at the moment! frown.gif Maybe at the end of the year what I would like to have today will be offered by one or two brands... Ce est la vie!

The lack of SATA express is for one reason. SATA-E uses PCI-E 2.0 lanes. What this means is, if you use SATA express, you use lanes that you can potentially use for a GPU. For instance, let's say you're on a platform that has limited lanes that you want to use SLI for. Then you use SATA express. Well, no SLI, sorry bub. Or, let's say you're on a value level chipset. If there's an H-99 chipset, that has fewer PCI lanes? (I'm not sure, just as an example). Let's say H-99 has 16 PCIE lanes. 1 SATA express device means that your GPU is now a PCIE x8 speed device. Or if you have more than 1 SATAE drive, do the math.

This is the reason why SATA express is in a state of flux. The specification isn't completely concrete and nobody can figure out what the heck they want to do in terms of PCI express lanes. On top of this, there are no SATA express devices on the market.

I don't know. I would love for speedier SATA express devices to exist; we're at a wall with current SSD speeds. I don't know what the solution is. Perhaps we can just get freakin' SSD drives that plug directly into a pcie slot. I would have NO PROBLEM with this. Except that such devices exist right now and are geared towards corporate use, and the price reflects that. They are just way too expensive right now.

Unless Broadwell will show a significant gain over Haswell refresh.. doubtful

Broadwell is on 14nm. Who cares if it's much better then Haswell.. It's 14 freaking nm lachen.gif

Well, if x99 supports both Haswell and Broadwell. And all documentation indicates that is the case - That's all I need to know in order to practically guarantee that i'll buy a board at launch. Just my thought, though.
