it might make sense if they want to earn more money and have the proper yields on making those chips. july august everyone is on vacation but if they release it before they get 1-2 really good month sales

Releasing big things before large vacations is always good. Though it'd (perhaps) be best to release chips in the winter so cold weather can get higher OCs and more favourable reviews.

I need this to be true. I've had enough of Haswell and it's bug infested boards.

Just read this on wccftech.com

"Broadwell-E will work with Intel’s X99 Motherboard “Wellsburg” which should settle fears of Intel migrating to a new motherboard once and for all. It also means that those who like to update regularly can buy Haswell-E when it comes out without fear and later upgrade to Broadwell-E with the same configuration. Broadwell-E will support DDR4 Ram and will probably have more frequency overhead than Haswell-E as is traditionally the case. Oh and another very important thing.

This source claims that Intel is having problems again and Haswell-E will NOT be pushed back to June as was leaked before and that it will come in Q3 after all. I do not know what to make of this since previously all sources had maintained that Haswell-E would come in June, but I am going to pass on the message.

The E Series SKUs are generally the HEDT portion of Intel’s lineup and usually the processors the enthusiasts go for. From here on, begins pure speculation on my part. Haswell-E’s DDR4 Frequency overhead is at 2133Mhz and I expect Broadwell-E’s to be at 2400Mhz. The SKUS will most probably will follow the normal nomenclature with just the addition of 5. i.e. i7-5960X, i7-5930K and i7-5820K. They will most probably scale upto 8 Cores and 16 Threads. Their TDP should be less than 130W probably around 110W."

Well I'm to go against the trend and hope the Haswell-E chips come out sooner than expected. It will mean that by December/January when I'm looking to buy my CPU/Motherboard/RAM, prices will have come down & any bugs will be found and hopefully sorted biggrin.gif

Considering the way Intel has released the enthusiast platform the last several generations since 1366 I would say he's pretty spot on. It has constantly been the $1000 EE with a chip with the same number of cores with less cache at the $500-600 price point. It might be a couple months later like how the 970 was released after the 980x but to not expect it ever is rather short sighted, again citing past intel releases leading up to this..

Intel has had over a year to get this manufacturing process down. They are probably going to be sitting on crap loads of 8 core haswell-e chips and they would be pricing themselves out of the enthusiast market with only 1k 8 cores, yes some enthusiasts buy the x parts but I'm willing to bet volume wise Intel sells boat loads more of their k editions and thus despite having lower margins having far higher revenue.

Again Intel may only release the x first to get the first adapters to pay through the nose but eventually they are going to run out of people willing to pay that and eventually need to get out a cheaper k edition. Plus why would anyone buy the $600 hex core? It won't have the distinction of being an x part effectively causing a $700 price gap between the two chips people would actually want to buy. that makes no sense whatsoever. The more I think about it the more the idea of two hex cores makes less sense.

Not sure is szeged was being sarcastic, but yes, the RTC bug is one of the main reasons why I hate my Asus Gryphon, along with the double booting and "Failed Overclock" spam messages on a STOCK system. The RTC bug has been around so long I'm convinced that Asus are never going to bother addressing it, curse them. The RTC bug can affect any Asus z87 model.

I wait out C1, only to get a buggy C2 board after it's had what should have been ample time to mature. Should never have had to wait out C1 in the first place.

Gigabyte's Haswell boards appear to be far from polished too. PCI-E issues, SATA drives not being detected, the G1 boards with their "Audiophile" sound solutions are prone to interference etc.

Last night I was seriously leaning towards buying an x79 board again, but then I saw this headline. I really hope we get some solid x99 boards, and that the chipset it'self has no outstanding bugs. I want something like the P9X79 WS, (but not from Asus) - a high quality board with none of the 'gamer' fluff. I hope Gigabyte does better with the HEDT this time around, it seems their x79 efforts were widely regarded as being pretty pathetic, and I remember burning boards and BIOS 'fixes' to hardware problems.

100% serious, almost every other bios issue ive had i can either fix or there is an official fix for it. the RTC bug has been going on for almost a year now and asus refuses to believe its a problem on their end.
