Does not compute.
He wasn't making a flame thread. He was asking a simple question about whether this happened before.
To the Op
Yes this happened with the 775--->1366 as well, but there was a bit more meat there with hyper-threading/turbo boost(for non overclockers)/tri channel memory. It will continue to happen as well. Is there a lot of difference between the platforms, a little bit. Would you notices it? Only if you were doing some ridiculous number crunching, and i do mean an insane amount of number crunching. For the use of most people on this site no. That being said people always have to have the new best thing, which funny enough with tech, something always comes out right after you buy the "new" tech that is better and faster.
In short people like new stuff. Even if they don't need it or wont see a benefit to it.
