[TT] Intel confirms Kaby Lake for 2016 launch - Page 14

Suddenly, their computer isn't great anymore, when their computer will be just fine in the years to come. Of course, you also have the people that just like buying new things for the heck of it.

I think part of that worry comes from obsession of either their own stuff (lacking other hobbies or things/people that need to be taken care of after the new PC build is done) or of other people's stuff. I'm all about setting it and forgetting it until I need to deal with it again. If I weren't currently performing minor upgrades to my build, I wouldn't be paying attention to these forums right now.

Certainly. People have interests they are very hardcore into. Most of the people in this forum are as such. It's a "pride and joy" to a lot of people to maintain the best PC they can afford.

I've been rocking my Xeon X3460 for quite a few years, and it still performs well for my needs. Later this year, I will do a massive upgrade, and won't have to worry about it until a part breaks down, or something completely new that interests me comes through the pipeline.

(Maybe that sort of explains why I haven't posted much on this forum in a while. lol Who knows?)

Absolutely, and there's additional pride in anything that you put together yourself. I think what gives this extra attachment is that you are the one who picks the components that go into your machine. To your point earlier about worrying too much about the latest and greatest hardware, there is a point where you have to enjoy what you have and not worry about what else is out there.

No part of my build is currently a bottleneck for how I use it (though the video card will be coming up next), which is what's important. I can't spend my time worrying about Kaby Lake, Cannonlake, Icelake, or Tigerlake. I don't like spending a bunch of money on chasing something that has no end, and PCs are still utilities that are subject to guaranteed obsolescence. There's no charm, no character, and no vintage/classic appeal.

What triggered our side discussion was someone complaining about Intel releasing new platforms regularly. Do people miss out on life if they haven't made a build with every microarchitecture that Intel releases? Why complain about it otherwise, especially when one can't even get the timelines correct? I know everyone thinks differently, but I find it hard to get angry about Intel's roadmap when it isn't relevant to me but once or twice every decade.

Not like 2P still remembers this thread, but the anger was comically out of place.

Uhem, man.

3D XPoint is memory tech.

NVMe is a protocol for non-volatile memory (NVM, duh).

In fact, Intel will probably release a PCIe-x8 or something NVMe SSD using 3D XPoint.

The interesting part for server market should be NVDIMMs though and if i see leaks for Purley and stuff right, support for it is mostly there already and is only waiting for official release.

I'm still rocking a 486, no reason to upgrade. Who needs Battlefield if you have Leisure Suit Larry??

And that is why I don't move from my i7 4790k. Every year there is new CPU from Intel, upgrading without at least 30%-50% performance difference is pointless. I didn't even OCed my 4790k yet since there was no point.

I guess I will wait one or two more years before "upgrading" (hopefully).... to something significant.

You're only behind if you feel you are.

Exactly this. As long as you're happy with your system and it does what you need it to do what difference does it make whether AMD or Intel release new chips every other day or not at all?

Doubt there will be something worth upgrading to for years to come, look at the 2500/2600's, what's there to upgrade to?

im saving for CNL .. or SK-E with integrated FPGA.. whichever hits first.

 

*KBL is more of the same power savings bs+ teeny IPC optimization and core structure that wont matter too much for desktop use anyhow.
