How long will Haswell CPUs be on the market

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Has there been a set amount of time previous generation CPUs stay on the market for sale? I'm considering a cheaper 1150 socket CPU so I can get a rig up and running and upgrading at a later date, but I am curious how much time I have to wait before Haswell is unavailable.

Not very long unless you're considering the used market

The cheap skylake chipsets are available now

OTOH, if you do consider used parts, a really long time.

I got Athlon II B24 (dual-core 3 GHz) off eBay for $10 a few months ago. Combined with some spare parts I had lying around, I now have a mini-rig to toy with, practically for free.
